Good but could be great.. Good app but it has a bug when scrolling frequently (text overlaps). Also it would be better to control preferences and upload pdfs from the app, not the website. I would recommend it despite these things however.

Very useful but.... There is a word limit per article. I tried listening to articles from the Atlantic's blog, but it cut me off after 35 or 40 minutes. Some of those articles are long. Over all the reading is excellent. You can still tell it's a computer, but much more natural than other computer read text that I've heard. And the rest of the app seems to work quite well

Amazing app I wish they would market it more so more people SG. The technology for voice reading is par none. Great for having articles read to you while your driving. Even documents.
