Reviews From google play store

I love this app! These features are natively built in on the lg stylo phones, that's one of the many reasons why imma lg guy. But now temporarly, i'm using my obama phone, and needed this app. If your phone is across the room, know whose calling before you even get up. Assigning each person in your contacts a different ringtone can be time consuming and possibly confusing.


Clicking "review this app" in-app pops up a bunch of stars in a row. For you to rate the app, presumably. BUT! You are ONLY taken to Google Play Store (to submit your actual review) if you have clicked 4 or 5 stars. 1, 2, and 3 star ratings get ignored. To offset this I am submitting a 1-star review. Many apps do a variation of this dishonest rating boost / manipulation technique. Frankly, an illegal practice. I have rated them ALL 1 star. Edit: This is an excellent app otherwise. Reads aloud my


Good Software scope for improvement is there, some features I was enjoying with ECID, enhanced SMS and Caller ID is missing 1. Email Notification with custom text and repeat if required 2. Calendar Notification with customization for Event, Location, Subject etc 3. Whatsapp, Messenger, Duo, Hangout Notifications with customizations for content. Willing to Pay for the good features, please update and let us know if you are working on same, Thanks


Please sort out the issue of it switching to/from American accents instead of the phone's default "English UK" TTS language. Also, after 3 edits of this review and 2 emails, I've yet to hear from support. This is, however, an absolutely brilliant app when it is working.


This app works perfectly. I have set it in Spanish and it's the only app of its kind that uses a normal voice, not one like a dwarf as in other apps. I totally recommend it. Thanks s lot to the developers.


THE BEST TTS app of them all. The fun part is the customizing. It's a little tricky, but all you need to do is backspace and erase the example shown and then dictate or type in your own version of what you want the Voice to say before it announces the caller name or name of the app that is generating a new notification. My favorite feature is the ability to "nickname" any one or even all of your contacts. "Dr.Jones" becomes "Call coming from your doctor's office". Love this App!


Does NOT notify of incoming calls. Does NOT notify or announce sms or sms content. Only reads notifications. Tried to get support but no response. Wanted this to work! Would have paid for full version!!


Does work, be sure to choose Music as audio channel and that your audio isn't muted on newer phones.


I like this app it's straightforward and it reads just the messages I select without all the other mumbo Jumbo that seems to come with the other message reading apps only downside is sometimes when I have it connected to Bluetooth devices it doesn't seem to read normal text messages have to open the app to prompt it but it but reads out messenger WhatsApp and all the other messenger apps I have set just struggled a bit with normal phone text message but works most of the time happy with app


Great when it works presently fiddling with battery optimisation as Android keeps killing the app, yep Android has made it so most apps are removed even useful ones like this


Works well. Only think is I can't hear announcement when phonr is ringing in my Bluetooth earpiece. Is there a setting for that? Should it work? Hope to hear from developer.


Keyboard has many languages announcements are read only in English. This tool is really nice.


it's a nice apps. but will be more better if there will have announce delay settings on sms to allow notification tone before the announcement. Since it overlaps notification tone with announcement.


Normally fine then Problems with voice the voice when talking to me goes into American female and I have never chosen this I only want a British male accent talking to me. Why is this happening?


I seldom leave reviews and when so rarely give any more than 4 🌟 . With that said here's my 5 🌟 review Love it! Very useful! Can set it to read messages out loud which is very beneficial. You don't have to go grab your phone and read every message you get it'll read them out loud for you. Really nice not having to mess with checking messages you don't care about. Especially nice if you have a Bluetooth. Can set it to only work with Bluetooth/headphones on so it doesn't read messages outloud you don't want other people to hear. This is a must have application. I'd like a different theme though I'm not very fond of the yellow color however since this is something that you don't really open often it's not that big of a deal.


This app shouter is very nice but in old version but it does not works on new version pie and etc plz it upgrade to working on new version it didnt announce call ,messages or time.I will buy a new shouter pro and but it not working on same situation of old free app shouter plz change it or upgrade it..😭😭😭


it was awesome, until it started to mess with the rest of my phone's media sound. for example Instagram videos, WhatsApp voice notes, etc where always with volume off when i never turned it off in the first place.


This app is superb, it saves you a lot of time checking your phone manually when a notification comes in, to just hear it being read aloud. Furthermore, it supports any app that has notifications, so you can use it with every kind of messenger app, not just the built-in one, or none at all, as it can also be used for timed announcements, such as reminders. Aside from being a handy way to avoid having to unlock your phone's screen throughout the day to check notifications from friends, it just plain feels nice to hear incoming messages being read aloud sometimes. It can also be super-useful if you are in bed and a messenger notification goes off, to know whether or not it's something worth crawling out of bed to reply to, or just something that you can wait until morning to check.The app also includes an (optional) widget for your home screen, that when enabled, displays an on/off bar so that you can quickly disable the reading of notifications, in the event that you want to avoid annoying those around you in public. Prior to this most recent update, it became at one point temporarily unable to read SMS messages properly, but this issue was quickly resolved.


this app is truly awesome I love how you can customize it to announce what you want it to say top of the line I wish I could give this app more than five stars thank you so much for this app


my notifications are shouted messy, i set own text for the message reader, but it's overtaken by the app notification, so my own text doesn't work


I really like this app. The only thing I wish I could do is have it announce a priority list of favorites instead of all incoming calls and text. I used a similar feature in my old Note that's not built into my new Note 9. Other than that great app. I'm considering purchasing the pro version... 😊 😊 😊


I had the old version and now I have the newer version, either way I am totally in love with this app. Combined with Google assistant it is the perfect combination of call, messages and email management. I love driving along while Shouter reads me everything that is delivered to my phone. Great job guys!!!


Great with one fatal flaw: If you receive two text messages (from the same source?) at the same time, you only hear the last message. Need to queue or delay it so we can hear the (This is with one repeat enabled but probably doesn't matter.)


Great app BUT it says the wrong name on the second, third etc message. Gets it right first mrssage but not after that.


The app doesn't work except I wake it up from sleep by clicking on it. Once I am not working on shouter and shouter becomes idle for 5mins...any call or message that comes in, the app won't announce. What could be the problem and pls rectify this issue


I am using Realme u1. This is app is not working (incoming caller readout feature) in latest color os v6 android 9. please fix the issue.


Highly recommended. I have been using it (free version) now for over 3 years, and it has never disappointed me. low memory and battery consumption, though allowed to use background power to ensure its efficiency.


Totally erratic. Call name reader stopped working after few days.


Not working... Does not announce any call or sms. Please solve the bug I'll re rate it.


work great. only 2 thing wrong is that keep announcing random names each times text messages coming in. freez up phone.please fix.


I love it if I don't want to talk to the person when they call I know who the person is or who the text just came thanks I am enjoying it so much


The app is confusing the names of people sending messages. Only 1 out of 10 does it read the correct name of the sender of a SMS. Please correct on this


Great app and the only one that will still give notification through phone speaker when connected to BT in car (I don't get sms notifications in car). So far it's quirked every time and no errors.


I love this app. there are a few minor bugs left. I would love to have those fixed. I also would like to be able to get my hands on the PRO version. Please keep working on developing this app. It is great to hear what's going on on my phone without having to look.


Maybe it is good program if you do not use headset. Beacause with headset it anounces only in headset, not loud


This app is simply exellent. A long searched and espected accurate app. I recommend it for all.


Excellent app. Yet every 2 weeks stops announcing. I have to un install and reinstall again. The app is not optimized in my battery settings so i can not blame on software phone. Update : i just quit it because was not reading my whatsapp messages. Found a far better replacement...


excellent shouting notification app for me.. very helpfull.. 😇😉


There's no pause between the title of the app and the content! It sounds horrible. I only want to skip the app title speak but there's no option to do that.


he needs to have a pop-up that would notify you that somebody has called or sent a text and it would not go away until I released it somehow


Works great! But stopped working after a week. Started to work again! I love this app as it announced my Smartthings alerts while other app won't respond to the alerts


Good app and it will be better If more languages is supported


Does exactly what I needed to do. Perfect app for reading text through Bluetooth devices. Crystal clear hearing.Thank you. GREAT JOB!!!!!!


I love this app it is perfect and the best going to keep it always also gave it 5 stars i love it


Nice ! What they missed in the OS settings ! I like how fine tunable the app is !!


oops 😠 Don't download this rubbish app ,it doesn't work what it says it does unless you want to lose your time and space.it keeps saying this feature is not available on this device.c


like that you can customize a lot of settings from what notifications, when, volumn,sound. I would like to see if not read the text message out loud for all and make some set limited or private .


used this app for awhile now, very pleased with it. the only thing I find wrong is that it will announce the time at abrupt intervals.


Brilliantly built App but fails to announce after awhile.


Great app.It does what it says.Good job.I'm impressed it works properly.


does exactly what I needed! never crash, voice is clear, no pop up ads, very smooth.


Good app but has a few problems for me. Reading out contacts does not work + Reading out long urls is annoying.(a settings filter would be nice)


Looked like a good app what I was looking for but talked when it wanted to told me the time when it wanted to this morning 09.02 not 09.00 device is Samsung Note 9 good idea hence 3 ah just seen another review not working in Pie hence issues will gladly load and if works buy app.


Revised....thanks for fixing it. Whatever you did in this new release broke the app. it no longer works for me. it was working fine before. Motorola XT1687


After having just installed, everything is working perfect for me so far. Very happy with it. All the different ways to customize it is terrific.


Once worked out what's what seems to work great. Want to upgrade but worried it will no longer work. Works like no others have. 👍👍


Starting app installation work is good but after no work


This app works fine for me till Oreo, but its not working on Pie. And also not showing in 'Installed App' section in google play. I request app developer to kindly fix this issue.


Good feature, but it'll be better if it can keep running because it's always auto close after not opened for a while even though I've pinned it (Huawei pro 10 user here)


After the latest update, voice notification in screen off mode isn't working in PRO version.


Just started to use. Set up is easy and selection of options is extensive. Will update comments after 2 weeks of use.


Very helpful. You have to disable each app's notifications for it to work properly


Great. Can use some refining. Can't customise Time announcements. It says: "9 'O' Clock am". I want it to say " 9 am".


Trash, only works half the time and since the last update there is an annoying banner with no option to remove


Everything worked as it should I like the idea that it talks to me and remind me important times during the day


amazing app. it's make my phone a personal assistant, without any salary to pay. xclent- it's ads-free.


Not announcing incoming phone calls ....text only


App was working fine until last update. Now, it does not read factory installed txt app messages on Bluetooth with my Samsung. PLEASE FIX


I love that I don't always have to dig my phone out of my pocket to check a notification. The app is very useful.


this is also fentastic and cool i love it voice notification sound....


Awesome experience ....Your App become my best friend..Thanks a lot


Useless app only for battery deduction & hanging problems create this app & IN NOTIFICATION ONLY SPEAKING APP NAMES. I'm unistalling just now this app.


Awesome app. Reads all my notifications because I'm lazy and don't want to pick up my phone.


was great until the last 12/20 update which doesn't support battery notifications


Should have Auto mute option while watching videos or listening music Doesn't read out WhatsApp messages off notifications.


Works for SMS but not on phone calls.


After the last update suddenly it stopped announcing the caller name. Please fix. I am using Nokia 6.1 plus


The paid version of this app has disappeared from play.store ..wonder why ..I had purchased it ..shouter pro is gone .?


okay... this app is good... but what will it really don't read our chats & privacy things. reply me guys as possible...


Great and amazing, sometimes stop working or gives late notifications.


Love this app the best one out of all the others I have used I would recommend to use this app


works just as advertised, probably worth buying the pro for more settings.


This app gsve me a severe migrane and constant anxiety attacks. Please be careful. And use condoms akways


Using vivo y15 , it's not working properly, only time is telling me not other options working on my cellphone


Awesome even though misbehaves sometimes but its the best of its own kind.


Why it does not read the content of my emails? Before it did?


wish there could be different voices


Nice app..But sometimes could not announce the notification


Itt worked well after installing but after that it stopped reading messages. I will uninstall this useless app


The app is so sooo good no adds notification on point no Internet connection needed you have done well guys


Great app. Straight forward saves time.


That's a pretty cool app especially when you don't have time to look at your phone all the time


this fixed no audio nitifications out of phone speeker when connected to blutooth headset on Android pie


I'm new to this app so far it's working as advertised and I love all the features that is why I'm giving you five stars.


Bad doesn't begin to Express what I think about this app. Miss calls and no notifications...not 1! Trash.


Does not announce my reminders. Not doing this cost me. Not happy


nice app it tells if battery is low or full notification


since update shouter will not announce calls or message / content tried reinstall reboot etc


first time using the app so far so good but I like it I like the options I have thank you.


great app just wish you could change the notification time from ever 3 hr to ever hr.
