Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Readwise reviews

It does its fundamental job, to collect clippings from phone to Readwise cloud, but it's painful. Pro: 1. adds webpage clippings to my collection, unified across multiple devices. 2. OCR for clippings from paper sources. Con: 1. Doesn't collect & separate html-tagged metadata (eg, web page title). 2. Disables keyboard (moves cursor to end after every keystroke). 3. Review of collection on phone is just a long list, can't sort/filter.

Didn't appreciate that it got me to sign-up, add my highlights, and overall make me think that I was all done only to realize that it was only a 30-day trial and that I'll lose access unless I pay a monthly subscription. I bet it works at forcing people to just pay the 5 bucks/mo, but I just don't like that. I'm pretty sure it's because they know the price is steep for what you get, so they try to hide it. I just wanted to manage all my highlights in one place. Inflation is not that bad yet...

It's an okay highlighter. I want to highlight as I read and for the app to get right out of my way while I do. I'm busy reading! With that in mind, I prefer the chrome extension's "quick highlight". It's not useful for me to have a note called "passages saved from Android" where everything dumps. I don't want to be forced to write a title every time to avoid that. I need to highlight even more quickly, and for it to use the page name by default. I love how simple this is but keep going.

Audify Read Aloud Web Browser reviews

The playlist feature is convenient. It would also be great if there is an option to proceed on the next list even if the screen is off. (Edited) Is it also possible to implement OAuth2 so the user can sync their activities across all devices. Anyways even without that, the app is really great!

- Silvantus Schnauzer

I rather enjoy that I'm able to just click and play the adds are whatever once in a while I randomly accidentally click on one and then I have a weird pages open but otherwise not to intrusive. I can listen to my stories and do what I need to do woo woo .... The only things I could ask for would be a way to raise the volume without changing the pitch and a repeat button for the entirety instead of just a page because realistically I would like to be able to just play my stories over and over

Best apps that can read website! Better than screenreader & Google read aloud. I haven't use it to read epub/pdf yet, but I use it to read webnovel (website) while I do other work and it's wonderful. The ads aren't intrusive and I like that it doesn't show while you're reading. Thank you for not letting ads interrupt my reading time. Plus what I like about this app the most is the option to correct pronunciation! This makes listening less awkward with non-English words and names.
