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
Best voice notifier Continues to be one of my favorite apps. Love the new toggle widget! I have tried SpeakMe, Vlingo, Dragon, and several other apps to read my incoming text messages. Voice Notifier is by far the most reliable and efficient for my needs. And, terrific support from the developer!
Excellent app Works excellent amazing awesome I loved this app it's very useful makes my phone more smarter. One advice to everyone don't ever active the talk back mode or you will regret. But besides that this app works perfectly fine. great job thanks Thank you so much.
Best TTS so far! I've been using this the day I got my new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and it has tremendously helped with my language learning instead of reading it all the time! :3 Though I do like it paired with Read Aloud, another awesome tool I have for selecting text and listening to my selection in my target learning language, I do have a few minor issues. For some odd reason, the Notify and Read Aloud apps do not automatically detect the languages I select in Read Aloud and only goes with a default language I set. This means I have to manually set the language I want read, which is very annoying. In addition, the language detection percentage found in Read Aloud does not work at all in my heavy testing. One other problem I have is the headset I plug in my phone used to read the audio stream I set to read aloud doesn't seem to work anymore. When I first downloaded the app a few days ago, it worked even with the head-set on. Now, it tells me "Screen On" highlighted in red as a reason why it did not speak my chosen stream. Sometimes I need to set the device state to only "Headset On" when other people are sleeping or do not want to be disturbed and it doesn't work, period.
Great app, but needs regex or scripting support I've been using this app for a while, ever since I saw the movie "Her" and decided I wanted my phone to be a bit smarter. After the notification sound is played, the application title is read out. So, for example, I'll hear (bing)Facebook, and if I'm at work, I know I can ignore it til lunchtime. If I hear (bing)Hangout, I'll read the message right away. 5 stars if I could use regular expressions to create rules, or basic scripting. Ideally I'd like it say (bing)Facebook message from ((sender name)).
Upset. I have this app set correctly, but it no longer allows me to use the volume or power button when I don't want to hear it speak to me.!!??? Why?? Please update this back to the way it use to work. I would then give it 5 stars gladly
