(HTC EVO Shift) I wish the app worked as it claimed for me. SMS announce worked ok, but call announce didn't work at all with the free version after completely configuring it and triple checking everything. I took a shot and purchased the license so I could test the ringtone replacement option (something I very much want), but once the license was installed it not only didn't speak the contact name, it changed my default custom ringtone to the original Sprint default ringtone (windchime) and played that instead! I then checked out the profile I was test calling from and it was still set to play the default ringtone which the app apparently requires to work. I noticed though that there was a ringtone named "Call Announcer", so I touched that ringtone to see what happened and it played the default Sprint (windchime) ringtone as well. In short, it simply didn't work at all for me with the free or paid versions except for SMS, and I sadly had to refund the app. If the market gave you 30 mins to test with I would have played with the settings a little longer to try and get it to work, but 15 mins goes by pretty fast from the time your purchase is approved until your time runs out for a refund.

Nice program. I especially like the option to use nicknames. Helps with non-latin languages not currently supported by the TTS. Only problem is that there is no option to mute it when not using a handsfree. Not much point in having the announcement play over the speakerphones.

mutes my music (have to restart phone or force close app to restart) and notifications for sms are played over music ... UNINSTALLED ... I tried enhanced sms caller id and it seems to work for me.
