Ratings and Reviews
Not very functional
I bought this app so that I would be able to listen to my textbook while commuting everyday. The 'recording' function seems to only want to export the entire text, and there is NO customization functions besides the 4 English voices and speed of speech. I wouldn't recomend this to any college student instead, I would tell them you can use the software built into you Mac, and just import it to iTunes - essencially the same thing. I really wanted customization options - which there are none.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
