Great app. Fix a few kinks for 5 stars Highly recommend. Wish there was a setting where you can disable it from reading your texts out loud when you don't have earphones or a Bluetooth connected. it stops reading your text messages if you receive multiple texts back to back at one time and you'll have to read them yourself. It's a fantastic app and does its job well.

Looks like the developers have folded! Tried to send an email to the developers and it got bounced back. Plus, the listed website name shows that the website name is for sale. Bummer, since it was, IMHO, best of breed and really wanted to consider my request for improvements; see below. Now using Lollipop v5.0.1 on an LG G3; 1. Can't get to "preferences" as I could under older versions of Android and there's no "menu" option showing on the screen. Having the menu symbol show on the screen would be a great benefit. For now, can't turn off read names or anything else nor cannot change color preferences either. 2. Would like to have: for this app to only read out sms messages from my contact favorites. 2.a. Messages from most vendors, ISPs, or cell phone providers do not need to be "read" out., IMHO. 2.b. If that were desirable to "read" messages from a vendor, putting it on my favorites would resolve that issue.

It is a good system of saving time But the voice should be more clear although it is a good app install and enjoy it.

Jack Cleary

Reads EVERY message. I can't turn off. I like this app because it reads my sms messages very accurately. However, I don't like this app because I can't turn it off.

lenell timberlake

Good but needs improvement Better than bt reader. But when I type text it doesn't go through and it could be more attractive but hey it does read messages so for now I'm keeping it.

A Google User

Love it bur want a way, o turn it off and on easily Great but needs an on off button

Claudia Salas

Reads out my texts perfectly It's not fancy by any means but I don't mind at all because it does exactly what I need it to do and it does so for FREE. I haven't had any problems yet at all. It has read all my texts perfectly. It hasn't skipped any texts or mis-interpreted any. I'm very happy with it.

A Google User

Prageeth Cool application easy to use. User user friendly. Thanks for the uploader

Muxe Chauke

How can I remove it? I have tried to uninstalled it bt it still reelad. The boring things about it is just u can set it to silent or mote. So I to remove it for a while

mzteaser tease

Tracy It love it. I dont have to look at phone every time i get a text any more. No more textn while driving. It's against the law now.

Pablo Cruz

Pretty good I would rate it a five if the quick response pop up was more reliable or if you where able to disable the pop up but still benefit from sms reader. Good app with huge potential.

A Google User

Good app This is a good app for reading out loud incoming calls and sms. I do sugest some improvement though. If this app could repeat the incoming call message at least twice. Now it only rings once. Also noticed when charging the phone, the app would read out the incoming caller. Otherwise it's a superb app.

Murali Kannayaa

Nice Its sooooo nice application ....very useful while in driving. Good kep it up

Georgene Smith

Its okay It works fine to read out the text messages but it will not let me reply. It has the reply button there but it does not work.

Annie Nolan

Annie Nolan Great app buy can't figure out how to disable it from reading out messages as they are received (like the settings you have in the picture)

Lori Wheeler

Helpful Like how it reads out my messages, especially when I am driving or in the middle of doing something.

Tom Hundt

Replaces Messaging, not just reading Can read caller names and sms messages. Takes over the Messaging process for new texts, which sucks because your replies are not visible in messaging when you go back to a thread later. Unfortunately there's no way to disable this.

Deon Parker

Not bad, few options like wait time before reading out and the option to use only with headset would get this a 5

La'La Watson

Huawei Prism Good app, but I gave four stars because I don't like how it says, "Sms content" before it reads the text. Gets annoying after a while.

Barry Mann

Nice reader Works well. I'm in construction so with my Bluetooth headset I can hear notifications without having to grab my phone to check.

Doug Stansell

Works but not impressively Needs an off on button. You have to go into the preferences from the app itself just to get it to stop reading your texts. You would think that closing the app would work but it keeps restarting itself as texts come in. Also I would rather it pause my music when reading my texts like other apps do or at least make that an option...

A Google User

Green color very hard to read The sms reader voice sounds too robotic, and the light green is annoying, also it messes up the pictures so the avatars don't match the names.

Laura Coster

Amazing for what it does but... Can't turn it on/off :( reads texts when I don't want it to!

A Google User

Excellent for VI Put the app on for my son who is VI and unable to read his sms from his friends. We are surprised how well the app works as it is free to use, I can't recommend this app enough.

Malachi Miller

Only a few thing are missing Fabulous and useful app, but you need to be able to voice command it to read a message once received and then let you reply by telling it "reply" or something so you can send a message back so us mechanics and carpenters don't have to get put phones all nasty.

A Google User

Very good app though sometimes only reads half the sms but still i would buy it

Ash Pidurkar

Titanium s5 Its very good never mind but there is no male sound in any software

Michael Wilson

Great reader Allows me to hear them while driving. Just wish I could voice respond.

Craig Lindsay

Works well Just wish it had a simple disable switch while I am listening to music

A Google User

This app is very good and performs well but suggest there should be more improvement on it

A Google User

No Bluetooth = useless I just want something that'll read my incoming texts over Bluetooth, like my ancient Windows Mobile 6 phone could five years ago. This app reads text messages but insists on doing it over the phone speaker even when my Bluetooth earpiece is paired and connected. It's useless to me.

William Paul

Good one It is a good programme. You can set the speed and you don't have to open your SMS to read it every time. I am giving 4 * because of the ads

Marie Altobelli

Doesn't pay attention to settings. Still reads texts when phone is in silent mode. Terrible when you're in a meeting!

Billy Engleman

Works well, mostly I like it to read old messages while driving (if I forgot to turn on the one I use to read incoming). Taking off 2 stars because it doesn't read group messages in JB 4.2.


Good Not bad ...good useful to type text on image easy.

E. M. Hicks

Great! It does exactly what I need it to do, read aloud my texts.

tom mattaliano

Great program! I've used it extensively from the moment I downloaded it. It can auto-read text, just announce sender or be silent and wait for me. Very customizable and user-friendly (and loud!). Recommended!

A Google User

Samsung SII Very good, but sometimes does not finish the message.

Jim Cowden

Worked as expected I haven't tested this in the car with the Blue Tooth yet, but it comes across on speaker pretty well. It took a bit to get used to the different symbols for operating the app.

Jesse Wismann

Sooo The images show a settings menu, but there isn't one. Using a note 5. Sounds like crap, super basic and no way to access settings.

Ray Witczak

Decent interface but need some refinement Long text messages will not be read in full. A complete tutorial would be helpful seems confusing between the check and the response. Overall not bad

Todd Crispin

Tmc The intro to the message every time is incredibly annoying and there's no way to shut it off. When a message comes through and the little thing pops up there's no way to replay it unless you go back to the main app menu that it's just really stupid. Took me forever to figure out how to get to the Preferences menu because it's such an antique application other than that you can say it works.

Dave Oliver

Undeniably Does Not Work! I have a long message from someone. I select the long message, hoping it would give the option to READ IT. No frickin' way! This P.O.S*** is going to be un-installed. Look under READ MORE, #1.

Ephraim Rein

This app does not work properly at all and the worst yet.... .... You will not be able to uninstall it.... A large logo will pop up, preventing you to click the uninstal option... STAY AWAY!!!!!

Kenetha Dietrich

Good Just like some of the others i wish it didn't read my messages over the speaker.

Sammy Lee

with a Note 4, you can't bring up the preferences screen since Note 4's menu button is mapped to 'recent app's; it worked well with a Note 3 and older though. Edit: just found a way to get to menu by holding down the menu button; so I like this app because it allows you to choose to read any incoming messages; what I really like about this is that, you can go back and read a particular text. I haven't found this feature on any reader apps. so I'm changing my rating.

boris carlos

What am I doing wrong Has anyone heard the caller ID? I have never heard it, a tutorial would help, it could be the greatest app ever if you would make improvements based on the rating comment instead of doing nothing likes not responding back! I rite here this app is also placing the wrong contact photo with the wrong message received or sent it showing that Karen send a message and Lisa sent and vice versa you need to get on top of this very quickly or I'm going to have to delete this app and spread the word get back to me ple

boris carlos

Were is the settings , the speech rate is too quick for me ! It allrite could be more inter active or just do what it says it can do.

Arthur Lafayette

Great App Loving the app. I am on the road alot and when I am in my car my phone is linked to Bluetooth but it doesn't read the text messages. This app has been a Godsend. For those of you who are trying to get to the settings menu on Samsung devices, while in the app all you have to do is press and hold the back touch key at the bottom of your phone and that will bring up the preferences menu option.

A Google User

Contacts jumbled up.... This app does not sort my contacts properly. It says, "A message from xxxx." But, the message is from ME! Also, it does not take you to an entire thread or conversation without having to continuously tap the speaker to read each text. Also, each text is not divided into WHO is actually saying what. One name is used for all of the text of any given conversation and on some conversations, the WRONG contact's picture is there........uninstalled.

Otser Egroeg

It works great on Galaxy S4 Of course asking for certain features doesn't mean that the product is not good already. But if I could block certain numbers that would be perfect. I have had to uninstall the product several times because of certain numbers coming through that were a total embarrassment.

Renèe Bordon

Pretty decent app. Only set back is that the SMS reader reads your text and if you didn't respond to the text in the reader, then go back to you phone's text message to send the reply. .the message is not there. You can't read the message your responding to because it was in the reader. Please fix that.

Pat Finnigan

After disconnecting from my BT the messages are still being read out loud. If this could be disabled when I log off I would give this a higher rating!

A Google User

SMS Reader by adroit I've tried then all including the pro versions... This is the only one that works like it is supposed to. It reads to the blue tooth so I can get texts read to me without it being played aloud on the phone. It stays connected to the blue tooth!

Jason h

Effective but flawed. The actual reader part works perfectly. I would rate it higher if I could turn it on and off. I use it when I'm on my bike. I don't need it when I'm not riding and would like to be able to turn it off without turning the volume off or totally disabling the app. Second problem is if I use the app to respond to messages, the person I'm responding to does not receive the response. I have to close the app and go back to the regular messaging app.

Hannah Daisy

Too long to download I tried installing it half an hour ago and its still downloading its self!!! Even worse I can't stop it and its draining my battery!!! Can any1 give me some advice??PLEASE!!!

A Google User

Nice application Great but English is ok. But mes in other language's r messed up. Even it says caller names.

Sajid Khan

Reads even in silent mode The app does not consider the phone settings. It reads the messages even if your phone is on vibrate or silent mode.

Paul Pilant

Works great I have used this app daily for months during my long commute to and from work. It works well and is stable. The only thing I would like added is perhaps the ability to change the female voice. Other than that, I think the app is pretty good.

A Google User

Ron It reads text aloud well, but stutters when announcing caller sounds like Porky Pig! Please fix. All in all a useful app.

Bill diehl jr

Above average Reads messages consistently and clearly. A box pops up for me to write a reply but that doesn't work on my S5

A Google User

A J LOVE IT ! ! ! I love this app. It allows you to hear the message while it's being received, and later (if you've missed when it was originally receive

Jerry Lum

Slow down speed of reading Slow down the speed of reading. Now its on 6th gear. Bring it down to 4th gear. The message should be read calm and measured note panicky. Tq

A Google User

Installed to htc evo 3d. updated 28/01/2012 Installed to htc evo 3d. PROS: Does exactly as advertised...BUT! CONS: There is no way for message recipient to both receive a message and 'then' choose to listen to it or not. You can only configure the app to play the message or not 'before. (rather than after) you receive the message. So, you either get a message with no way to play it after it arrives, or you get the message played right away. Uninstalling


Working Now At first I couldn't get this app to work. Then I un installed Handcent SMS. App is working now. Need to go through settings and tweak it to my desires. Pretty insistent about getting one to rate it. ...

Karen Kolbu

Makes my life easier! Who needs tools that help them throughout the day? Me! And this app helps me. So many times I've missed important messages because of one reason or another, but this app helps me hear my messages when they come in so I don't have to have my phone in hand when I'm busy, driving or have my hands full. It works well and I like the voice.

Thomas Benda

It does what it is supposed to do but I don't want the reply field, then it doesn't show up with everything else. And I need to be able to SHUT IT OFF!

Acey Shepard

Great This is a great app. I wish you could talk back to it for a response to the texts. That's not a complaint about this app though. Because it works like the description said it would.

Dennis Laughery

SMS READER Runs good. Messages are read loud and clear, very handy while working and not having to look at your phone to read texts.

A Google User

Rag By far the best one available, as what I've seen and compared with others. But still needs some improvement in terms of UI and dependable performance..
