    Very smooth read back EXCEPT for the hiccups handling full stops and other abbreviation marks in sentences for instance after Mr. Also if used with screen off the app stops regularly, somtimes mid sentence, for no apparent reason... I have checked and there is no option for this so is it a default built in? Minor niggle but can be irritating... Full Review

    For some reason it won't let me enter the app. It doesn't show up on my home screen, when i search my phone It doesn't show up and when I go to my apps and games and click on it it doesn't say "open" but just "uninstall". I've tried uninstalling and installing again, but that didn't work either. Full Review

    Great app, I once struggled to say even the most basic curse words in different languages. Now, I just type whatever vulgar thing that comes to mind and I can insult someone in whatever language I want!! I mean, obviously a lot of ways to curse sometime out falls into the territory of idioms and probably don't necessarily have the same meaning from one language to the other... But STILL, the idea is there! Full Review

    Can anyone guide me how to get rid of the annoying notifications. Developers are not bothered to rectify the issue. It irritates me as I am unable to delete the notifications. I think the problems are in MI phones only. Full Review

    This is a very responsive and flexible TTS software and specially important for visually impaired folks to be used along with Talkback or other screen reading softwares. In order to help Iranian folks too, please add support for Farsi/Persian so that the blind community have a human-like voice to use on their Android devices cause they only have ESpeak as the only text to speech software to use for reading Farsi texts that is very robotic in its sound. Please keep up the good work. Full Review
