with a Note 4, you can't bring up the preferences screen since Note 4's menu button is mapped to 'recent app's; it worked well with a Note 3 and older though. Edit: just found a way to get to menu by holding down the menu button; so I like this app because it allows you to choose to read any incoming messages; what I really like about this is that, you can go back and read a particular text. I haven't found this feature on any reader apps. so I'm changing my rating.
Great App Loving the app. I am on the road alot and when I am in my car my phone is linked to Bluetooth but it doesn't read the text messages. This app has been a Godsend. For those of you who are trying to get to the settings menu on Samsung devices, while in the app all you have to do is press and hold the back touch key at the bottom of your phone and that will bring up the preferences menu option.
Great app. Fix a few kinks for 5 stars Highly recommend. Wish there was a setting where you can disable it from reading your texts out loud when you don't have earphones or a Bluetooth connected. it stops reading your text messages if you receive multiple texts back to back at one time and you'll have to read them yourself. It's a fantastic app and does its job well.
Only a few thing are missing Fabulous and useful app, but you need to be able to voice command it to read a message once received and then let you reply by telling it "reply" or something so you can send a message back so us mechanics and carpenters don't have to get put phones all nasty.
Contacts jumbled up.... This app does not sort my contacts properly. It says, "A message from xxxx." But, the message is from ME! Also, it does not take you to an entire thread or conversation without having to continuously tap the speaker to read each text. Also, each text is not divided into WHO is actually saying what. One name is used for all of the text of any given conversation and on some conversations, the WRONG contact's picture is there........uninstalled.
Looks like the developers have folded! Tried to send an email to the developers and it got bounced back. Plus, the listed website name shows that the website name is for sale. Bummer, since it was, IMHO, best of breed and really wanted to consider my request for improvements; see below. Now using Lollipop v5.0.1 on an LG G3; 1. Can't get to "preferences" as I could under older versions of Android and there's no "menu" option showing on the screen. Having the menu symbol show on the screen would be a great benefit. For now, can't turn off read names or anything else nor cannot change color preferences either. 2. Would like to have: for this app to only read out sms messages from my contact favorites. 2.a. Messages from most vendors, ISPs, or cell phone providers do not need to be "read" out., IMHO. 2.b. If that were desirable to "read" messages from a vendor, putting it on my favorites would resolve that issue.
Added support for themes.
2 new themes with Blue and Biege Colors added.
Few bug fixes.
Listen to app reading aloud web pages, PDF, DOC, TXT, EPUB and FB2 files, more.
