The very best notification reader I have ever used (and I have tried quite a few over the years). Extremely configurable.. I haven't been able to get it to read notifications for the CNN news app yet, and I've tried every setting I can think of. Nevertheless, it's still a five-star app IMO. I would gladly purchase this app if that was the only way to get it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH David, I implement apps for pure passion in my free time, that's why they are "done at my best", FREE and NO-ADS! Regarding CNN, my app is a notification reader, but notifications can be very different from each other (as many as 7 different fields can be filled in). Write me, we can investigate together: mariuspelix@gmail.com

This is an incredible and interesting app that's full of potential. You can tell that the people who created this app put a lot of work into. Sure, it has bugs, but it is great nonetheless. Two recommendations: 1. Change the alarm right away (especially if wearing headphones). It's too loud. 2. Change the voice and language to Female Philippino. It's great when it tries to pronounce Engrish words.

JJ everything in MY app is CONFIGURABLE! 0. Set EXPERT mode (2nd option) 1. look for "Warning tone" in "General Audio Settings" and select a system sound 2. look for TTS section and select the desidered language, if you have it on your phone (it uses installed TTS engine)! 3. if you need suggestions, look YouTube videos, or: mariuspelix@gmail.com

Best app of it's kind! I rely heavily on having certain notifications read to me through my Bluetooth earpiece. I have probably tried a dozen or so apps that claim to do what I want and most either don't work or have limited ability to configure. FNR works all the time and is highly configurable. I highly recommend it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH Eric, your SUPER 5★ review encourages me to develop GOOD FREE NO-ADS apps in my spare time! I hope that detractors for malice or laziness'll understand too how much work and labor is needed to implement my apps, supporting them with their 5★ rather than attack'em without a concrete reason! For questions, you already know my email
