Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I was looking for. Nice to have my daily schedule read to me in the morning. Two suggestions: Enable me to set any time of day (down to the minute) because I’d like it to be 6:29 AM. Also, even at slowest setting the voice still speaks quite fast. Be sure to check out the options for this app in the iPhone under Settings.
Love the idea but poor execution
I frequently forget what day, month, yr etc it is due to the heavy medications I live on for my disability.
This is the only app I could find with that audible reminder.
But I also have over 10 google calendars by topic to help me prioritize and remember dr appts.
The Voice needs to have an adjustable speed. Waaaay too slow for most folks. It’s also automatically connecting to every calendar I have. It really needs an option to choose the calendar(s) it gets info from.
I’d love to try it again if it gets improved. Thanks for being one of the rare ones that focus on bringing disabled people the benefits of technology too.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
