This app is a scam. If you want to try it never buy from their website but only from for example appstore, so you can get a refund

This app is a scam. It drains your money yearly but also for every purchased voice in a monthly term. I claimed a refund as I thought I could not make any use of it, but I never got the money back and people from the support were always writing me very delayed, even after a week or two, that: "I have put your request at a priority status". After three months of back and forth senseless e-mails, I thought my case is lost. And it was. Thank you.

Is It Any Good?

All in all, this tool is both incredible as-is and worth a small investment. The app itself is free to download, and some users will get all they need out of the free version. The built-in voices are user-friendly, the app promotes good reading habits by providing users a copy of the text it's reading and highlighting, and the types of documents that can be saved to a user's playlist are nearly limitless. The reading rate, phrasing, and inflection don't always align with cultural norms (pronunciation of proper names may be confusing to some), but it's as solid as, if not better than, other tools available on the market today.

And for kids who are required to read a substantial amount of text before preparing a research paper or essay or who are just eager to learn more about their favorite topics, it might be worth investing in the subscription price. At a rate of $1.99 per month, kids can use the text as it's being read to capture important notes or facts along with citations to use in higher-level writing classes.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
