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.

TTS Reader – reads aloud books reviews

Unparalleled TTS file reader on the play store. Very customizable. The replacements function is great for when the engine doesn't recognize a place, name, etc. I find myself troubleshooting slow/non-functional TTS about once a month. It's usually an update that occured while using the TTS, solved by force stopping, clearing data, etc., or I just un- and reinstall the TTS engine (Google for me).

This app is extremely good. It may not include it's own TTS voices however you can choose whatever you want to use, even install a separate app to add more voices instead of default. There are tons of ways to customize the app and the ads are minimal. I use an old version of IVONA and these paired together work incredible.

- Chad Pauley

Pretty good app. Ive been using it for a few months now, and I am unaware of a better free app like this one. The only issues I have are 1) when occasionally opening up new books. For some reason, the app seems to have the habit of opening up a previous book read.... which requires me to attempt reopening the new book several times. This can be quite frustrating at times. And 2) when I pause and play, or add a bookmark/highlight (which are great features) the app glitches and closes down.
