Great for hands free driving SMS? Facebook Messenger? Listen to what your friends have to say and reply when you get home or pull over if its urgent. Great app. Two downsides. 1) standard Facebook notifications seem to not deliver their content anymore 2)facebook messenger notifications only work if the screen is off.
Fantastic app! I highly recommend it! 'Voice Notify' is an essential app for anyone, but especially useful for someone such as myself who has dexterity difficulties, also has a SCI & is a fulltime wheelchair user. I do not have to look at my phone to know what is happening. VN is very customisable, eg, you can stop some FB group messages by putting the group name or a word in the 'ignored text' option in VN settings. Wish 'Email' said who was sending the emails like 'Gmail' does. Unfortunately on my new Note4, VN keeps being 'disabled'!?! Such a pain for an essential app! 😞
it's ok works well when it works. stops working every time I perform a memory boost. have to either reboot or toggle off the app in accessibility then on again to make it work, very annoying. I find no other of my background apps stop working after a memory boost.
Love this app!! This is just what I was looking for! No more having to wonder what notifications I have missed, now I can hear everyone, and I never miss one, I hear them all! It can also be set to say only the ones you want, and not say any at the time you choose, so it is a win win all the way!!! Please keep working on it you have done a super job!
Very useful, I use it when I'm in my car to get notifications spoken and it works great for such. However it would be awesome if it could be linked to bluetooth. This is because I'm sloppy, and regularly forget to either switch on or off. The widget is however already a good begin
2 years on and still lovin it! Very customizable and easy to use. Can enable/disable notifications of practically any app installed. Customize common text phrases such as "message could not be sent..." to "BUGGER!" It really helps having adequate Speech to Text engines such as SVOX, IVONA or ACAPELA.
