SMS Reader

SMS Reader


SMS Reader reads incoming text messages to you. It also announces caller name s of incoming calls.
You don't have to look at the screen anymore.

Open the app for Preferences or add the home widget to enable/disable reading.
The preference dialog has a basic view to quickly change reading options. It also has an advanced view for more personalization.
With the home widget you can quickly switch through the most frequent reading options. Just tap on the widget and it cycles through silent setting, announcing names only and reading out the full text.
By default only the sender/caller name is enabled (for privacy reasons).


Note: this app is distributed as is, I don't have the time anymore to add new features. It's pretty stable though, so it does what you need.

Recent changes:
- announce correct name when text messages contain a name instead of a phone number (oerators etc)

User reviews of SMS Reader
Gratulálok a fejlesztőnek. Nekem ez az első olyan alkalmazás, amelyik mondja a hívó nevét. LG-GT540-es a telefonom. A hangerő állításra még nem jöttem rá. Köszi

Sadly it lacks the customization of leading messages (e.g. "incomming call from") hence it is useless with TTS in languages other than english.

The voice may not be very pleasing to the ear, but the quality of this app is great. Reads text messages, and / or caller ID, text sender's name. Options can be toggled from a widget one can place on one of their home screens.

Lovely little app this does just what i wanted ie it reads my sms as they come in. What's more it doesn't have ridiculous long winded agreements similar apps seem to insist on. Well done
