Informant

Informant


This application reads aloud information about incoming or outgoing calls, SMS messages or system notifications. In conjunction with K9 mail this app can read your e-mail headers. If you use a bluetooth headset, all notifications will be read by the headset even if the set only supports SCO mode.

Greatly facilitates the use of the phone while driving a car or motorcycle. If you have the correct version of the system, you can even pick up calls using voice command.

For proper operation it is necessary to properly set up the speech synthesizer. You must install it before running this application.

The application is compatible with the built-in speech synthesizer and other text-to-speech engines currently available on the Android platform. Speech recognition makes use of Google services and requires a data connection.

Do Not Buy I paid for this App to get rid of the ads and never received an email, confirmation, basically nothing and the ads are still there. Tried to find contact info and all I found was a +48 country code phone number (Poland) phone number (cost more to call than I paid for the app so I didn't call ) and the link on Google play to contact them. Sent an email from Google play link and never got a reply. Basically if you pay for it they will take your money and you won't get anything for it. The app seems to work alright except that the voice is kinda garbled, but Don't pay for it, no support at all.
