App Reviews

  • Worse than Siri by far

    By dharg
    This app is overpriced. The voices are robotic despite the reviews claiming the opposite. There’s a a noticeable pause between the words that’s distracting. The inflections sound forced. I’ve had the app for 2 minutes and I already hate it. Sorry to sound so negative but that’s exactly how I feel.
  • Too expensive for what it provides

    By AppEagle
    Deep down I knew I would be disappointed, but I gave in to the hope that this would offer something significantly better. Unfortunately, my conclusion is that it is a nice app, but not worth the high price.
  • My most important app on my purchases

    By Micodiaz
    Take time to master it but is so worth
  • Absolutely useless

    By jijibiji lots of fun
    The navigation simply does not work. Trying to rewind, set a percent does not work.
  • So much more than a book reader

    By His word is true
    This is a great application for reading books. I especially appreciate the flexibility and ease of use for making adjustments two speed and play back. It is much simpler to use than other readers I have downloaded. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by how applicable this is for reading other formats including PDF, word documents, webpages, and even listening to old MP3 files for lectures that I have on my one drive account. Incredibly powerful an incredibly useful. Thank you for all your hard work in developing this application.
  • No sound at all. tried everything

    By NeogenIsis
    No sound at all. I’ll change my rating if I can get any sound. I’ve quadruple checked all options,, the sound on my iPhone is turned up, I’m not in plane mode, etc,
  • Please, please and please fix it.

    By Disign1293

  • Great App — helps me so much

    By JerryCphoto
    I have trouble with my eyes so I use Voice Dream to listen to online magazine articles. Really easy to use for listening and storing text articles for later reference. Thanks again JerryC
  • Good Experience

    By heyrobt
    What a great find. Prior I have been using Siri to read documents and my writings, but this app has definitely improved the experience. It was easy to set up and had a nice choice of premium voices. I was able to quickly choose a free download and did purchase another voice to have a variety. The app came with both ”Quick Start” and ”User Manual ” preloaded to help with any hiccups along the way.
  • BEST text-to-speech!!!

    By Howardg23
    As a professional writer I’d never found a text-to-speech synthesizer that was more than a robo-voice - nothing professionally useful. Now I’m re-writing a novel and I’m finding it FANTASTIC to have Voice Dream read a chapter to me in a voice that sounds like a professional reader on Audible! The voices that come with the app are fine but the in-app purchase voices are AMAZING. I swear it sounds like they’re reading with feeling. I use SHARON for my novel as it’s from a female POV and I can truly imagine how my novel will sound as an audiobook. WONDERFUL app!!
