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.

Evie – The eVoice book reader reviews

Once I get more books from other places I will be very happy. Right now everything that I have on my phone comes through Amazon or from the library and this will not read either of them I have difficulty even trying to share to this app. I love the potential. I love the ease. I love all the different features. Except everything I want to read right now is inaccessible. I guess you could call it melancholy Joy.

Love this TTS app! The built in network voices are so smooth and natural that I can listen to books (I use this for reading fanfic) while doing chores, driving, at work, etc. One downside is that I can't play music and listen to books at the same time or change the pitch of the reader, but tbh those are a minor trade off for the amazing voice quality! It can also record the TTS for saving and listening offline, which is great for not using data :)

Best reader, hands down. If it's do-able, I'd LOVE to be able to change the color of Evie in-app; the blue area at the top of the screen where the icons all are, as well as the highlighting part that's currently a pink color. I'm personally a fan of red, purple and full black. But if a "color wheel" could be a thing, that would be amazing also. Just an idea I had. It's not vital, just more on the aesthetic side of things, haha. Zero pressure, I promise
