Version 1.2.1
Review by cello54

Great Application- Needs to have note taking capabilities - I use this application for almost all of my PDF reading. It works really well for PDFs that have been converted from a text program like word, but not as well from scans. I am a dyslexic undergraduate student doing a significant amount of scientific resarch and it really helps me get through scientific papers. The only thing that I would like to see them add is the ability to annotae the PDFs while it reads- ie if it had a sticky note function so you could insert notes, that would be excelent. I'm planning on using this for most of my reading needs next year in medical school as well.

Version 1.2.1
Review by in good company

The Worst $15 I've Ever Spent - I loved the idea of this app, but unfortunately it just doesn't work. It's suppose to highlight text while it's narrating. So that you can read along. I've never had the narration sync with the text. If you pause the app, the text selected will jump several pages ahead. Making it a nightmare to find your place. I hope that an update would be able to fix it's problems.

Review by chpaca

Remove this app from the store. - Does not work and couldn’t find any support. This app should be removed from the store, $15 is absurd for an app that doesn’t work.

Version 1.2.2
Review by BeevdOut

Long Term Member…disapointed with iOS complement - In the past VBooks worked with Ipad, IPhone, and MacOS once purchased. However, now to get past page 1 on a tablet or phone you have to buy a voice—that is already part of IOS??!! Its better to add the doc to a PDF and have the iPhone read it. The voices should be utilized that are “enhanced” with inflection - the list is out of date as is the engine itself. You can highlight almost ANY app on ANY PLATFORM and right click and have it read to you. This company is abusing a feature already included within MacOS/and iOS, and not only that, giving you less inflection, less options, an out of date voice list, and is no longer compatable across platform. The only way I can think of is that the app although it has the same name has different versions as I can “restore purchase” but have less or no use for it on the iOS Platform. Its dissapointing from an App I used daily.

Version 1.2.2
Review by Nickname10400

'Version 1.4 (5)’ is a disaster - I used the previous version of this software extensively. I drive a lot, and make productive use of the time by listening to documents. When this latest release came out, a large percentage of PDF’s I need to read were all of the sudden no longer readable in vBookz. The version available as an option to update to, from the app store recently is 'Version 1.4 (5)’ - now looking at this page that lists the latest version as ‘Version 1.2.2’ makes me wonder even more what’s going on with vBookz. I’m stuck with this ‘1.4 (5)’ and I wish I could revert back to a prior version, whether it be 1.2.2 or whatever actually works. There’s a major problem with the last update: I have several examples of PDF’s that I know for a fact were readable in the last version that now either won’t even open into this version, or if they do it doesn’t read them. I wish I had a backup of the prior version. Now I’m searching for a competitor.
