Constant strain on resources though not actively used for weeks. Came up constantly as one of two persistently-running apps (the other being a music app, also never actively actively opened for weeks) that were red-flagged as resource hogs, even when tested against different battery-managing apps for accuracy, automatically reopening whenever closed. Both apps uninstalled as of today.
Great speech sound Love the voice and accent, sounds real and less robotic than android's version. It used to work perfectly with my Google maps but no longer does. Now I have to listen to the annoying Google voice rather than Ivona Amy's directions.
Isn't working I just installed so I can use an aussie voice on my phone but it doesn't work. During my drive it switched back to Google's American voice and it wasn't directing me as well as it normally does, ie less road instructions
Voices Love your work. Went to your site and noticed you have voices there that you don't have on paid version. Namingly male voices English uk and American male voices. I would like to see those on next update. I fell in love with your AMERICAN ENGLISH ( JUSTIN). children voices adds a special euniqueness to a computer an innocence if u will. Please add these. Keep up awsum work
The voice quality is exceptional. The product is exceptional..BUT The forced updates are what stops me giving the deserved five stars. It's certainly not an update for my benefit. I SUSPECT PART OF THE UPDATE IS TO UPLOAD USAGE PATTERNS BACK TO IVONA as this is a BETA trial after all. I would be ecstatic if I could just keep this version now. It works. BEAUTIFULLY. I have used IVONA TTS for ages, many forced updates. Its such a good product that these are scary. What if one day I CAN'T update. I fear its loss.
Love it, even with minor glitches Truly a great app, it works perfect with text apps such as Pocket and Cool Reader. I love all the voice options. There are slight glitches at times, and I'm not sure if it's the app or the Amy UK voice. Any word that starts with "to-" like "topic" sounds like it has an extra r in it, like "tropic". And each time there's an "and" and an "m-" word after it, it adds an extra "the" between them, so "and makes" sounds like "and the makes". Very strange.
