  • Literally saving my life in law school

    This app is absolutely incredible. I’ve been able to do my reading at least twice as fast as I can on my own. I even use it to read my physical books. I scan them with the book-scanner in the library, which automatically converts them to S-PDF. I love this app and use it several hours a day. It’s very flexible and never lets me down. It makes law school so much easier for me.

    I, like many professionals, squeeze every ounce out of the day trying to maximize efficiency. This has been a reliable tool for 7-8 yrs for me. I have not been impressed by other market choices and highly recommend Voice Dream. Also, I have never felt like I was the product. I think there is integrity in the management of their business.
  • Love the Shortcut feature but...

    Please give us the option to have a specific file read from All Items or perhaps Flagged. I was going to add a motivational speech to my morning routine, but the reading list removes whatever is read. Just think it’s severely limiting the app’s capabilities to only have the one option when it can be used for way more than just reading the news articles I saved for later.
  • Great with books and Instapaper

    I've been using this app for a few years and the developers are dedicated. It isn't beautiful at first glance but there is a lot of beauty in the details as you start to use it. I upload ebooks and have it ready them as audiobooks on long drives. Or just catch up on my Instapaper list in a short break. It's one time fee is worth it.
  • Fantastic App, Fantastic Developer

    This is my favorite IOS reading app. The feature list is huge and growing, support for readers of all abilities is broad, and the Developer is open to suggestions and is constantly adding new features and improvements.

    After much reading, this app seemed like the best. But I can’t even get the sample voices to work. Total silence. And I don’t think it’s my iPad. So I’m literally not getting past the first steps. Sigh. Please help. Thank you. Denise M. A. Brown
  • An amazing app

    The app just keeps getting better. I do hope there will be more Siri Shortcuts upcoming, like reading recent files. I also would like VoiceDream's TTS to take advantage of the 3D audio libraries provided by Apple to have a setting to show line width by panning through the stereo field while speaking, and perhaps this could work vertically as well, or at least have it on a flat plane going from front left, to rear right, in surround sound turns.
  • I love 95% of this app!

    The app runs great for the most part and the assortment of voices really give you the option to listen to books in a variety of ways. However, on certain books the software will crash and when reading in the "Rich Text" setting it will not always follow on rythym as the audio. But other than that this is definitely a Top 5 app.
