This app is fantastic and very customizable, exactly what I needed for my insane book backlog. Kudos to the devs. I have one note - I noticed the playback would stop after 5 or so lines one day and I tried EVERYTHING in the FAQ of the website. Nothing worked. Because I have an AT&T phone, OS updates are pushed on me without option, so I've been keeping my phone storage full to stop the auto updates. Apparently this stopped Evie from working until I cleared a few gigs. Pls add this to the FAQ

I've replied to your email, but I suspect my response ended up in the Spam folder. Evie writes the audio stream corresponding to each sentence to the SD card, temporarily, so you must have some space there. All apps are writing to SD, so sometimes the space is too low, while other times it may be enough, and it varies.
