*Why Voicepaper 2?
Hi, I had been updating the original Voicepaper and Lisgo until iOS6 era, and since iOS7 came out, I couldn't update it because of iOS7 bugs technical reasons. Since then, I couldn't update it and stopped updating it because of tech, voice engine contracts, and cost reasons.
Since then, I'd been paying the Voice engine fees and only doing user support, but a lot of people still keep downloading Voicepaper and Lisgo even though they are old iOS6 eran apps.
in 2017, I decided to develop a new text to speech app from a scratch using a different voice engine for Voicepaper and Lisgo users by combining Pocket, Evernote and Dropbox supports.
Finally, in Sep 2017, I could release Voicepaper 2 just before iOS11 release.
It supports 25 languages with male and female voices without additional purchases, and you can edit pronunciations too.
Speaking of voice engine, if I use enhanced voices, I personally like it better than the previous Voicepaper and Lisgo ones.
Because the previous Voicepaper and Lisgo had one-time purchase payment, please understand that you need to pay again to use Voicepaper 2 so that I can keep it developing in the future.

It allows only 15 minutes of reading time a day, then stops working. It then prompts you to upgrade to the paid version for unlimited use. Here's my problem with that: 15 minutes of use not enough time to decide if the app is worth the paid upgrade. It was also not sufficient time to get through one lengthy article. How about maybe doubling to up to 30 minutes a day or even better, switching to a month free before being required to upgrade? As for the reading quality, it's very robotic and was one prime concern.
Love Lisgo! Music?
Hello, I absolutely love the Lisgo app. When I stumbled on it not too long ago it immediately became my favorite app because I am constantly on the go and it helps me keep up with my pocket repository of articles I am trying to keep up with. Thank you so much for creating the app!
I am very interested in having the ability to listen to music while listening to the Lisgo app. Is this a possibility at all? For instance, when I do text-to-voice on iOS it conveniently lowers the volume of any music I have playing in the background until the content is finished speaking and then raises the volume of the music again. It seems like that might be a core iOS app dev. functionality that could be triggered somehow?
Again, thank you, SO MUCH, for this amazing app. It is my absolute favorite.
Still most used app on my phone!
I found this app shortly after it became available two years ago and have used it daily since -- more than any other app on my iPhone. It's simple and straightforward. I've tried a lot of other similar apps but only Lisgo does what I want it to.
Here's how I use it; maybe it'll help others:
I've set up Newsify in article list. I long press titles that are of interest and they are automatically sent to Pocket.
After refreshing content and starting the audio, I keep Lisgo in article list too, and swipe right to delete articles when I'm done with them.
If I want to save any articles for future reference I don't swipe them. At the end of the day, I open Pocket and send those remaining articles to Pinboard, tagging them on their way, and then deleting them.
I use Pushpin to access my Pinboard archives.
I seem to have lost the dark mode availability in Lisgo on my new iPhone 6... I hope that feature will be returned. Thanks.
