  • Exceptional Value

    Well worth the price! Now I can listen to my electronic documents while I work or travel just like it was an audio book. Love the Lisa voice, very fluid. As a suggestion I would love to somehow be able to clip out header and footer data such as page numbers etc from the reading of the document.
  • Issue solved!

    It’s amazing how much time we have on the road, waiting for people, doing chores etc. By listening to Voice Dream during these fragmented sessions, I managed to finish many books that I were almost certainly not able to finish reading on my own. I probably spend on average 1.5-2 hours on this app. Most of the time, listening to books is probably a better use of time than listening to podcasts or music. Developers’ quick response and fixes after iOS 11 was released has been amazing. Kudos to them for making such a great app.

    I wasted $14 on this app. Do NOT buy it. The developers obviously can’t keep up with the updates. I read that they were having rare issues with ios11 and were trying to fix it. I downloaded it and it started giving me programming error messages with the 3 default items that were supposed to be part of the install. Can I get my $14 back? Update: Per instructions from the developer, I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it. This worked. Still annoying.

    I can’t get any file to open, not even the Quick Start guide or User Manual. When I try to use the link to contact the developers via email, nothing happens. :/

    Well made, useful, super helpful for college students. It got me through so much dense and difficult material. I really appreciate this app. Update: I am currently a graduate student and this app is just as useful as the first day I got it. The staff is helpful and responsive, and the purchased voices are very good. This app is an asset to students of all stripes. Get it. It’s worth it.
