How to use this caller id name announcing app?
On launching this app, you will be presented with a screen that has various options wherein you can turn on the name announcing feature of incoming call or incoming text messages. Turning on either of these buttons will activate the caller name announcer app, and when you get an incoming call/incoming text message, the name of the caller/sender will be announced. The screen that opens up on launching this app looks like the following screenshot.
When you click on the Gear button on the top right of the screen, you will be able to see various settings regarding voice pitch, speed etc. which you can easily configure. When you click the gear button, the following screen will fire up.
In the above screen, you can easily configure the speed or pitch through a slider, stop announcer, etc. and this is all that this app has to offer. Pretty simple to understand, right!?
- Smooth, runs without lags.
- Simple interface, neat buttons that are hard to miss.
- Easy to understand Settings tab.
- Definitely not a resource hog!
- The user interface is a bit clumsy with everything in blue color, right from background being light blue, to the text being blue.
- Clumsy app icon.
This app definitely comes in handy if you want a personal assistant like voice announcing the name of the person who is calling you/messaging you. This comes in handy if you are in a crowded area, or your device is lying away from you.
