Terible sounding robotic voice asking for refund
This is the best app in android, a must have for anyone that wants so save their pockets from a huge bible:D
I love the translation and it's nice to have it on my phone. However, the read aloud function doesn't work.
The app is useless and is not fit for pupose. No text to speech feature on this app even though it was so advertised. I need my money back.
Great bible reader. Just cannot get text to speech working
