Look no further! This is a game-changer for me. It says what it does and more. I have tried dozens of apps that were too invasive or had too much bloatware. This one announces texts, the time, battery charging, etc. The settings are user-friendly and for someone like me with Bluetooth hearing aids, it's exactly what I need to hear without disturbing others or making me stop while walking or working to see who texted. Keep up the great work!

This app is superb, it saves you a lot of time checking your phone manually when a notification comes in, to just hear it being read aloud. Furthermore, it supports any app that has notifications, so you can use it with every kind of messenger app, not just the built-in one, or none at all, as it can also be used for timed announcements, such as reminders. Aside from being a handy way to avoid having to unlock your phone's screen throughout the day to check notifications from friends, it just plain feels nice to hear incoming messages being read aloud sometimes. It can also be super-useful if you are in bed and a messenger notification goes off, to know whether or not it's something worth crawling out of bed to reply to, or just something that you can wait until morning to check.The app also includes an (optional) widget for your home screen, that when enabled, displays an on/off bar so that you can quickly disable the reading of notifications, in the event that you want to avoid annoying those around you in public. Prior to this most recent update, it became at one point temporarily unable to read SMS messages properly, but this issue was quickly resolved.

I seldom leave reviews and when so rarely give any more than 4 🌟 . With that said here's my 5 🌟 review Love it! Very useful! Can set it to read messages out loud which is very beneficial. You don't have to go grab your phone and read every message you get it'll read them out loud for you. Really nice not having to mess with checking messages you don't care about. Especially nice if you have a Bluetooth. Can set it to only work with Bluetooth/headphones on so it doesn't read messages outloud you don't want other people to hear. This is a must have application. I'd like a different theme though I'm not very fond of the yellow color however since this is something that you don't really open often it's not that big of a deal.

What's new

Due to recent changes in google's policy shouter is unable to access your sms or call information directly. Now Shouter uses data from Notification for detecting and announcing call and sms. So this permission has become important for call, sms, battery and Notification announcement
