Reads CSS, Devs can't be reached. 1) Because the app loads one sentence at a time on the screen, it doesn’t handle paragraphs well. An example in the book I’m reading is that there are doctors who are talking. Instead of saying, “That is interesting, Dr. Smith (Doctor Smith)” the app reads “That is interesting, drive. Smith.” 2) The book reader doesn’t remove @font-face and css for the epub files, reads the CSS outloud! :( 3) I tried emailing the devs with the address on their website, but my email bounced back.
Finally! This app reads books to you! Don't give this app a bad review just because you haven't downloaded an epub book to your SD card. This app reads text (.TXT) files and epub (.EPUB) files and probably many more file types. Come on people, use your favorite search engine to find public domain ebooks,then download and save them to your SD card. [[[Also, this app will download ebooks just fine, and it saves them to your SD card in the Books folder.]]] The voice is a little strange but you can speed up and slow down the reading. While this app is not like a real person reading the book, it sure is great to be able to listen to a book instead of having to read it. Excellent work! Thanks!!
Use it on my commute daily Love this free app. Use it on my hour commute each day. The voice isn't amazing for a pay player but for free it is. Only downside is it sometimes has problems converting files to txt documents and will only play the 1st page of a book. Otherwise it's a great app!
Only supporting .txt files I have installed this app yesterday.. but it is only finding the files with .txt extension. So I am changing the PDF and EPUB extension to TXT and using. Please look in to this issue. I am using android 4.1.2 version.
Read Boox Poor. It doesn't work. Will not download any books. Useless. If you put an eBook in epub format into the download folder or the m-download folder the app cannot play it. Change it to txt format and it plays. Obviously, it does not do what it claims. Like all eReader apps they want you to buy from them not to download them for free on your PC first.
Not bad I paid for "PDF to Speech" Now I'm upset cause "Readboox" (free) is doing a better job at reading out loud!!
* important: as we informed before we updated the minimum Android version to work with ReadBoox to 2.2
