PDF-To-Speech (bugfixes)

On version 2.0.5
Base on very constructive user feed back, here are the bug fixes for this week.

* fixed stutter when reading the next page in the background.
* fixed having to pres play twice to get the program to stop when coming back to app.
* won't crash if swiping finger on sentence read seek bar. Instead the sentence seek will
be shown on the screen. when the user releases the seek button, the app will continue to
read at that point.
* The last page remembered is the last page read and sentence was too far behind current page and sentence. this is fixed to update the page and sentence more often.
* Was skipping last sentence in page if the sentence did not end with a period.
* took out unnecessary Internet access permission.
* the changes in speech speed and language settings are applied immediately.

PDF to Speech Update

PDF-to-Speech has been updated to run in the background like a media player. The update is considered beta while some bugs are iron out. The bugs however are no show-stoppers and will be fixed in future updates.

We suggested to the Android market to allow for beta version of programs to be posted on the market, so that we can release updates faster, and use the help of our users to find and fix bugs.

The next update will be mainly the bug fixing.

The big bug in the list for the next update is to enable the program to handle bigger PDFs.

Thanks for embracing the app, and providing so much feedback.
