User reviews of Pdf to Speech Pro
Functional. When listening to a pdf book however, if paused, will always revert to the page listed in the "go to page" box. Highly annoying. It would be better if when pause is pushed, that the app would automagically enter the current page being read into the goto page box. Also it would be nice if bluetooth headset functionality (pause/play) was included. what is the authors email address?

It sort of works, as long as you do not want to pause or restart. I would like to have another voice option. I am looking for something better, but have not found it yet. Right now it seems to be the only reader in town. :(

Not so bad I used to have an iPhone with Voice Dream which is almost perfect. The developers of this app should take a look at that program an get ideas.

Great App I love this app. The only thing that keeps me from giving 5 stars is that some times it loads for long periods of time in the middle a page. It'll say 72 out of 71 lines and showing the loading symbol. When it finally finishes loading the line # fixes itself. If you can fix that issue, I'll give 5 stars immediately! Galaxy S5

OK, this reader deserve 4 stars The developer fix quickly some problem that crash the app. Working great with my PDF's books. Does the job it should do and does it very well, but needs to improve the user interface, it's horrible. I'll give 5 stars if it improves the UI.
