Echo now takes great advantage of iOS 8 and the new iPhone 6/Plus layout. This update also add minor user interface enhancements for iPad.
Echo never prompts you for a review because I don't want to interrupt you. I know that if you’re enjoying Echo, you will take a minute to leave a review. They’re greatly appreciated and the 5 stars are really helpful. Thank you in advance!

Are you the kind of person who has to review a lot of text entries every day, but needs to give their eyes a rest? Or maybe you have to work with a lot of text documents in different languages and you need a tool to ensure everything is right? Echo is the perfect app to do exactly that.
Echo is an incredible app to boost your productivity, but it's also a very efficient tool. You can create new entries with our powerful rich text editor (or copy/paste content from anywhere) and Echo will take care of the rest. It will detect the language, read it out loud to you and because Echo supports background audio, you can switch to another app or lock your device and still enjoy your text entry with complete audio control.
You can use Echo to check and quickly proofread your text. Maybe you have an important speech to give, but you want an audio feedback of what it may look like or maybe you want to learn a new language and you need to practice by listening and working your pronunciation. These are only a few examples of how Echo can be used.
