I use Babble Daily!! - When I first started using Babble it was for amusement purposes (ex. prank calling, or saving and sending voice messages to friends). The excitement grew further when I started using the copy, paste, and save feature for more appropriate uses. I am a college student and am very thankful to have Babble read my text books to me. I am able to copy text from my .pdf’s and save them into the voice memo’s, which are then reread to me. The voice memo’s open in iTunes and are able to be listened to almost anywhere (ex. while driving, at the gym, and while cleaning). There is also no exceeding limit (word count) for text amount that I have seen yet. My textbook individual chapters time elapse usually run around one hour and thirty minutes average. So you see, Babble is a lifesaver, and I am very thankful to have found it!!

Not too bad I guess. - I guess i didnt like it only because the voices didn't sound too realistic. They were all robotic-like so I didn't try to use them on friends and whatnot.

This app is Amazing - Wow, talk about awesome! I have not had this much fun in years. The voices are great. You type anything and pick the voice you want and push a button and it says what you typed. I use this to leave funny messeges on my freinds voice mails. Or send audio greetings to their emails. Seriously, you have to get this tool. it is so simple to use and provides endless hours and weeks and months and years of fun. A true JOY!!!! I Love It!!!

This represents a very small effort. - Everything works fine. But the lack of anything really justifies the price.

Fantastic Program - THis is a fantastic application. This has many more uses besides pranking people. I've used it to create text-to-speech skits. It could also be used for creating audio versions of text that could be played on a media player or something. The possibilities are endless. I hope this app will be updated at some point to ensurethat it keeps working as Apple updates Mac OS X. Keep up the great work!
