Voice Dream et la voix des livres et donc la voix des rêves

Voice dream qui est une application de lecture de livre que je trouve tout simplement génial que j’ai découvert début septembre 2018 ! ! ! Juste dommage qu’il manque deux petites choses : en effet, contrairement à l’application Livres de l’iPhone il n’existe pas une fonction recherche de mots, et on ne peut malheureusement pas non plus ajouter de signer Vaucoux ! Merci de veiller à tenter d’apporter ces deux améliorations ? ? Merci pour l’édition de cette application et les services qu’elle me rendre ! ! Oeildelynx57

Efficience et plaisir

Cette application permet de s’instruire et de rendre certaines tâches quotidiennes beaucoup plus attrayantes. Je l’utilise chaque jour: Course, ménage, sport, transport et ai triplé mon nombre de lecture mensuelle. Voice dream permet d’écouter un grand nombre de format, elle est d’ailleurs la seule application à proposer ce genre de possibilité pour le moment. Outre le fait de pouvoir catégoriser et trier les ouvrages qu’elle contient un point reste essentiel à mes yeux: la possibilité de surligner certains passages et de les extraites ensuite. Seul bémol connu à ce jour: Surligner le texte est approximatif et fastidieux en PDF, beaucoup plus que pour le format ebook.
