Absolutely frustrating every time I use it I faff around with it for about 10 minutes to get it to actually work instead of reading buttons and URLS and then it will either crash/freeze my computer. If you'e been recommended this because of you're AD(H)D I would not recommend, all it will do is demotivate and frustrate you that you will not get any work done. Funnily enough this is the most productive the app has made me since installing it. I've fiddled around with settings, youtube tutorials and it is still as disappointing and painful since opening it.

It works great with Google drive documents. The bots voices is a bet slow but still works. I like the Google Chrome extension better through since it has more voice settings such as speed and voice tones.

I see a lot of bad reviews but they are old. They have improved this app a lot. My daughters school recommended the extension and it has really been helping her do her work independantly and sufficiently.
