  • Voice Dream is an excellent product!

    I have been using Voice Dream for over a year and have found it valuable in many situations: studying, reviewing documents, reading novels and more. I would recommend this app to anyone needing TTS. I especially like the seamless integration with Google Drive, as well as the superior quality of the voices. If you are considering purchasing Voice Dream, it is well, well worth the cost. I have tried a few other TTS apps over the years and this is the best that I have found.
  • Still Loving It

    I have had the Voice Dream Reader for awhile Now. It helped me finish the books for my classes in much less time and with much less stress. I have a difference in learning and this has helped me be on a more level pace with those who do not face this challenge in their life. Now I am using it for enjoyment. For iPhones it is easier to open the download on your iPhone and share straight to the Voice Dream Reader app on the iPhone. Thank you Voice Dream for the help and enjoyment you App has offered me!

  • Great app PLEEEAASE FIX small BUG though

    By joseph bronner
    Good The app is amazing to listen to books if you are driving in the car or want to do other things while reading. It is a lifesaver and has helped me multitask while being able to engulfed in reading amazing books. This app, I would’ve honestly paid $30 for how much I use it because it is so helpful. The voices aren’t too choppy, so you get used to them and they begin to flow rather nicely. I must thank the team whoever made this app so much because this app was a lifesaver and has helped me dedicate MANY hours of my time to reading through this app. I’ve used this app more than any other on any phone I’ve ever had other than messages. Bad This app is great, but I also have the issue to where if I switch from another app back to voicedream, the book flips to a random page. I try to text my girlfriend and read at the same time, but I have to always bookmark before I exit or I will lose my spot. This is an extremely annoying bug that no other popular reading apps have. But the app is great.
  • Great time saver

    By philtech2
    Voice Dream has been a great timesaver for me, allowing me to read documents without having to focus on my iPad or iPhone. It has also gotten smarter since I originally purchased, so it is nice to see that they are continuing to make improvements!

  • Do update !!!

    By axcfdccscv
    after 4.5.4 update, i can not open files (20Mb over *.rtf) Why don't you open and error the rtf file that was well opened and executed in the previous version? Fix it as soon as possible.
  • Hi I really like your app

    By matt_makes_vidiots
    Hi I really like your app and the price is right instead of a bs monthly- but it would be great if you could get the voices to pause at the end of sentences a beat and then paragraphs a beat n a half as that’s how the brain processes what it just absorbed. It sounds too frenetic when you have it reading over 250 if it doesn’t do such. If you do that I’ll change my review from four to five and I mean that unlike some. Thank you. Best Regards
  • Great app for listening to books

    I listen more often than read books and this app is great. I often purchase books in ePub format so I can listen and read them at the same time depending on the circumstances. This app is also great for documents and other publications. It’s easy to use and does a remarkable job of reading text. Highly recommended.
  • Phenomenal App

    By dreinstein
    I’ve had this app since it was released. In most instances I prefer Voice Dream to actual audiobooks. Which means you can make any pdf, epub, mobi, etc a high quality audiobook. The speed control, bookmarks, notes, location recall, duration of books (which changes dynamically when increasing/decreasing the speed), sleep timer, document thumbnails, various sorting options, custom folders, library sync, etc. It also allows the user a ton of control in its visual appearance, so it’s a great general reader in its own right. It’s easy to upload files from dropbox. Many of the additional voices are amazing and specific voices are assigned to specific books. In comparison the built in iOS TTS is cludgy and poorly implemented with no features. There is no comparison. To me it is worth we’ll more than the asking price. I guess it depends on whether or not you use the full feature set and if you like supporting small developers that value their users and respond to support inquiries and feature requests. The only feature I would love is the ability to play music in the background. I use the brainwave app to make this happen but it would be much easier and better to use spotify, apple music, youtube, etc to play background music with Voice Dream. Anyways, it’s a great app. Thanks for making it.
