As a daily browser I will give it 2/5 or even less, but as text to speech browser it's the one of best options available yet. It has the pause and next/previous paragraphs bottoms and can play in the background. It will use your device tts program so no need to install new one. The drawbacks are: not highlighting the text and not able to read from specific paragraphs.

I like the 'look' of the app. However, on my Mediapad M3, it loads very slowly. Could be AT&T or location. The layout, customizations, and feel are all top-notch. Would like a charcoal background over the 'too-brite' white one...that even though it's packed with light reduction capacity; is not the same as a charcoal background. Exceptional find. I like the app.

Hi Ron, I'm Daniel the creator of the app. I've been working to improve the startup time. The framework I used to build the app adds a startup penalty. Regarding the background, have you tried switching to a dark theme in the app? You can customize all colors. Let me know how you go. You can contact me directly via the about screen. Regards Daniel

A very progressive browser, but lacks the polish of other free apps. I couldn't find the URL bar and almost deleted on that basis. Eventually I did find it, only to find that Swiftkey covers the URL bar when I attempt to type. All good browsers can be different but they must have certain qualities, and because this failed so quickly for me on such a rudimentary task I won't be using it and I can't recommend it.
