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

Storytel reviews

I can't choose a country of a language that I speak(English) as it's not even one of the options. I was just looking for an app that would work with my watch and big yikes. I can't try out the app to decide if I'm willing to pay for it because once I picked a country, everything switched to the respective language and was unusable. -10/10 And no, I'm not emailing you about it.

I'm really happy with the app, and think that subscription is a good investment. I'd only add a table of contents so listeners could find chapters and concepts easily. Other features could be customize the lapses of time a listener could go back or forward on the book, as of now, you can only do this on 15 seconds jumps. Maybe in the future the possibility to have transcripts in the audio books or the option to do searches by words inside a book. Apart from that, I really recommend it.

Thanks for the quick response. Rephrasing: 1. I see books which show up in my searches but when I open them and I see the message "this title is not available in your region". Would be great if these books do not show up in the search so that the search is not misleading 2. If i am reading part 1 of a book in a series, would be great if part 2 automatically starts after part1. Hopefully this is clear! Keep up the good work.

ReadEra reviews

I was very tired of a previous reader app because it was so full of ads as to make it difficult to read even one book. I installed this app and it searched my phone for all PDF documents and then presented them in a nice list on the screen - very cool. Updating this review after becoming re-inspired to take up reading again. Reinstalled this app (on a new phone). I discovered that the volume up/down button takes me forward or backward a page at a time. No more swiping! Fantastic usability!!

Best e-reader I tried. I've been using it for 3 years without complaints. I wanted to suggest the addition of reading tracker (stats per day, month, year). Right now, I'm tracking this on another app but I think that a lot of people wanting to read more would enjoy such feature. I also want to mention the text selection tool and how frustrating it can be. I understand it is small characters on a small screen, but it feels like the cursors jump around randomly between lines.

I am still new to this app. I don't believe I've exploited her to her greatest potential, and thus I have offered her little opportunity to disappoint. I can say that I have made full use of its dark mode function, which displays not only .doc files as white-on-black, but also inverts the colors of .pdfs, which is quite helpful when accessing text-based pdfs. I am currently reading a William S. Burroughs novel, after which I will read the latest edition of SCAB Magazine.
