Great concept well executed
I am in medical school and textbooks are now all online. It bothers me that i have to go to different websites through different databases every time i want to look something up from a text-and this requires internet. But voice dream reader allows me to pick the chapters I want and store them all in one place for quick reference. This app doesnt require internet!! Love that i can listen to my textbooks while driving, exercising, or even sleeping (hoping unconscious knowledge diffusion is possible). Anyway, one of my favorite features of this is that i can search either an individual pdf or can put in key words in the search button on the home screen and see which pdfs contain what I'm looking for. Can be a little slow but considerinng how much Ive stored on here i dont blame it. I can even upload powerpoints into the app. I could also see it being useful for storing reference articles for researchers and im sure there are many other great uses of this app. Thanksss!!
One of the BEST APPS EVER!
Phenomenal app! I use this and have used this almost daily for about four years! Excellent support! I have received a reply to every question I have asked via email! These guys rock!! I use this to read and review, email, websites, books, and in some cases even have imported audio books that would not open in other apps! Well worth the cost! Love the option of purchasing additional voices, which can also be customized in the app! If I had to surrender all of my apps but one, this is the one I would keep!! Thank you Voice Dream Reader! Hugely appreciate the work and support for the past four years!
It's good, but there's just one problem
I enjoy this app very much. Yes I do. I like the voices. Maybe you could add some more. Maybe you could create some celebrity voices or something. That would really bring some joy to this app. The app is good, but there's a problem that I faced. When I was trying to use the Laura voice in a book, it wouldn't work. I tried to download it again. The app told me that the download was successful. When I tried to use the voice with the same book,, it still didn't work. Yes, the neospeech and ivona voices, but maybe a few acapella voices need fixing like Laura's voice.
