Fixed: Problem sync w Dropbox and Evernote

Update: just a few days after I sent a note to devs about this problem they wrote me back saying that this bug would be fixed and they were true to their word!

The manual says "Voice Dream Reader supports Dropbox natively. If you wish to change the Dropbox account, please disable it and then enable it again." This is unclear and my app is unable to sync w any of the content sources except for instapaper, which I haven't used in years.

I really wanted this app to work, but unless it can sync w Dropbox Evernote or Gdrive it is not as convenient or useful.

Make TTS great again! Essential app!

I'm using this app every single day since I bought it! And I bought this app for several friends as gifts, some of them used it while cooking or jogging, they all love it.

I really love listening to eBooks with the iOS' built-in "Speak Screen" + iBooks or Kindle. When I saw Voice Dream, I wondered why people would rather pay for an app which seems to have the same function as the free alternative. I decided to give it a try.

What I like about this app, flawless continuous text-to-audio, playback can be paused by remote control button on headset (works with Airpods), or a simple double-finger tap on screen. Just point to any sentence, and it starts reading that particular section. I could easily see the remaining reading time required for the book, the remaining time changes when you change the reading speed.

This is one of the best purchases I've made since I started using iPhone, I will rate it as 5 stars and an Essential app.

Definitely a "Dream" reader!

I'm legally blind and the native TTS in iOS 10 has not worked well for me. I had many documents and articles sitting in the Cloud waiting to be read. Voice Dream has now enabled me to hear them. Thus far, I've listened to text in PDF, and DAISY formats and some items from Evernote.

I'm really grateful to the developers of this app for making it available at a reasonable price.

Many low vision stores charge unconscionable prices for TTS devices, none of which are covered by Medicare.
