The once Windows Phone confined app can now be used by the Android users in an efficient way. This update also brings fixes to downloaded voice files that will not be cleared if the phone's cache is wiped using a cleaner, as it promised. If you lost them during cleaning, you will have to re-download any non-English voices.
