    I never stop using this app. It reads aloud almost any text format I can throw at it. I even use it for reading my talking books from the arrnib. You can organise read and navigate magazines books and many different types of publication. I carry the reading materials for my degree course where ever I go. It is written for the visually in paired in mind, but can be used by anybody who likes to read on the go. The developer is very responsive, you don't have to wait weeks for some temp late reply. If the app could more easily capture text by paragraph section or chapter of a publication and export it to another file it would be the perfect tool.
  • BEST APP EVER

    I'm not using my phone for much, only ever bought 2 apps and I regretted one of them and it sure wasn't this. I use voicedream reader daily, linked with pocket to read long articles, long emails and books. I got literally addicted to the fast information flow and remember listening to war and peace on 700wpm when I got this app- I did not understand much but I loved it because I knew with training I would be able, still haven't worked up to 700 but I'm extremely confident in the 500s and my n-back sore drastically improved, don't know if correlated tho' anyways I love this app, I'm forever thankful for the developer

    Stunning app, I've been using for several years now and regularly updated and improved. Thanks
  • Excellent app

    VoiceDream is an excellent app which is accessible for a wide range of users. Being able to customise the display means you can optimise it for following the text on a small screen. The same features mean that it can be very useful for officially impaired user as it's possible to watch rolling text in a large font. The voices available are excellent. It's nice to be able to get a Scottish voice.
  • Top e-book reader

    I've been waiting for TTS with Ivona voices. Great app. Now I can listen any of my books directly on iPhone. Great job! ❤️❤️👍
  • The best, but could be even better

    By Nkersov
    Used with the better high quality IAP voices, this is about as close to human speech as IOS can get. What I'd really like is for this app to be integrated with the developer's Voice Writer app, as I feel they are two halves of a killer whole. It would also be great if the app could record the voice reading. The one issue I have is with a couple of the IAP's featuring demos that are impossible for the app to do. Nic
  • This app singlehandedly changed the way I read books

    By John D Val
    I cannot recommend this app highly enough — I now read ALL of my ebooks through this app, I'm flying through about 2/3 books a week, instead of the measly 1 book every couple of months before I got this app. It is the ultimate method to download your ebook library onto your brain. For that functionality, the price of the app is a bargain 😊💙
  • Nice core tech but ridiculously hard to use

    I thought it would be useful for reading web content, but it's far too fiddly: I'd give it more stars if it could simply read the essence of a web page. Consider WebOutLoud for an attempt to get this right. I'll be returning this. Also it doesn't read headings properly: if a line ends with a return char but no full stop it should be considered end of sentence anyway. Same for bullet points.

    This app is an absolute must for writers. It reads my manuscripts back to me, so I'm able to spot the mistakes I wouldn't see onscreen or on paper. It's the best app I own - hands down!
  • Amazing

    By Larinen
    That's the most comprehensive voice reading app I ever used. The voice is not robotic and most of the times it understands the semantics of the sentences, which really helps to follow the narrative. That's some work left to be done on the interface, but still, wow, that's impressive! Deserved 5 stars
  • Crashes a lot and books take ages to load since last update

    The app is way more unstable on a 4s since the last update.
  • Non-existent support

    I would have deleted a star in any case because, although easier to operate, this app is no better than the built-in iPad VoiceOver. However, the main disappointment is the lack of support for quite an expensive app. I was attempting to use a digital version of a book. It clearly wasn't working so I emailed for help. All I got was a notice saying to the effect that he was a very busy man with a wife and children and didn't have time to offer support. I worked for two days with publishers in the USA and UK and we worked out that the digital book has to be structured differently for voice readability. We never got it working and wasted a great deal of time in the process. Weeks later I got an email suggesting the text I had was scanned. It wasn't but I had sorted all that out before I contacted support.I have a great many apps, I occasionally require a quick word of advice. I have never been treated this way before. The app is no use for my purposes.
  • My 6 star review: The verdict of an academic and lawyer: awesome!

    The latest mega update released in March 2016 is awesome - with the latest update in April. Where does one start. A review can hardly do this enough justice: there are just too many very useful features. It has revolutionised my approach to reading, listening and work. I really can't go back to life pre-voice dream. There is not an ounce of hyperbole here. Chen has simply impacted the lives of so many. Thank you! Oliver Twist now wants more: (1) can you introduce a feature that wakes me up by reading (the opposite of the sleep timer). Waking up by voice dream reading to me would be awesome. (2) can you allow us bookmark by tapping Applewatch as VD reads. Sometimes I am in the middle of something - eg working out - and listening to VD. I can pause VD on my watch; I can rewind. But I can't bookmark. If one could bookmark on the Apple Watch as easily as one could pause (with a tap) this would be awesome. Tunde
  • Unbelievably good

    Probably my favourite app for years now. Finally 5 stars :-) ...... Yes I am an old meanie aren't I, I say unbelievably good and then give only 4/5 stars. I may have a re-think later. This app reads PDFs, ePUBs (non DRM of course) and Instapaper *blogs beautifully. You can send stuff directly to it from, say a word doc from email. It works with Dropbox, not SugarSync. It is light and stable. Easy to control and has PC type flexibility. Dyslexia font and a pronunciation editor which even includes the ability to put lines of code in Regular expression form! Special iPAD and iPhone versions with the same purchase. What doesn't it do? Readability, and in order to paste in text from the clipboard you have to save it as a text file (within the app)- which is ok occasionally, but a bit clunky if you did it lots. So I retain the good, but simpler and strangely memory hungry "SpeakIt" app. I strongly recommend this for anyone with visual impairment or who wishes to "read" stuff on the go!
  • Fantastic Update

    This was already a brilliant app but it's now even better. I use it everyday to read and have bought loads of voices. Now I can use Cloud Sync to move between devices. My already purchased voices sound even better and there's just too many great features to mention. Love it!
