buggy and essential In the near-appless world of tts reading comment threads, no other app comes close to this one. it parses reddit perfectly... which it usually does on the 2nd or 3rd try. sometimes on the 9th or 10th. be persistent and this app will save you hours of reading. its great for long drives and to listen to while puttering chores around the house.
Excellent but not perfect This app does exactly what it says on the tin: it reads out comments from your favorite websites. There are some nitpicky ui problems though. For example, reddit stories show the score but not the number of comments(so a story with lots of votes but few comments is deceptive), and the hard limit of 200 comments read can't be passed. A bit more user testing would go a long way, but despite the tough edges on the ui, this is one of my most used apps on my phone.
Kinda cool but.. In concept this is cool, but first, I can't even figure out at all what the $1.99 reddit enhancement I bought even does, if anything. It doesn't seem to read some reddit posts, simply skipping to the comments. The lack of any available settings page is annoying, even if there arent any real settings.
Useful This app is very helpful, I'm visually impaired so listening is faster than reading for me. It does need a lot of improvement though, the constant errors and background music looping need to be improved.
Can't add RSS When I try to add RSS, get error "don't include HTTP://", even when I don't include I get this error. So I'm stuck listening to the included feeds. Disappointing, the app seems well designed otherwise but unusable as is.
It's a good start. It's buggy and crashes a lot... Ex, clicking the like button at the top. The music is horribly annoying and repetitive with only the option to turn off the jazz crap while the app reads, but not the "DVD like" menu music which is annoying. The app also doesn't stop readings or playing that annoying music when a call comes through. Another improvement would be remembering your position on the very long list of sub Reddit posts when you return from a "radio". Having to stroll down endlessly again and again to get to where you were is just poor ux. Option to kill music completely, remember position and mute on calls and I'll consider paying for this app and giving it a good rating.
