PLEASE fix the stop playing glitch. It plays for a few minutes, almost 10 minutes or so before it suddenly stops. And I can only get it to play again if I open the app again and press play, which is somehow pausing on its own. Otherwise, this is a really helpful app that Speechify team has created. Lots of text reading options and reading voices to choose from. I don't usually pay for apps. But this one seems really promising. So please keep updating. Also the voices could use some more nuance.

I purchased a premium subscription with the understanding that I would be able to use this in my car on commutes to work. What they offer is no better than TTS over Bluetooth,which I can do without the product. It would be a much better experience if they just supported carplay or Android Auto. The difference are little things like being able to control the volume and pause, replay, resume with your steering wheel rather than having to pick your phone back up.

I really want this to be better than it is. It's a great idea and sounds pretty natural most of the time, but the software development is just lazy. Right off the bat you find all kinds of bugs. Males voices are actually female, no indication what accent the English voices have, no way to skip the into when you open the app the first time, and the app stops playing if you turn your screen off. It would be so easy to make this great. Seems like they focused on stupid things like having snoop dog
