The more U use it, the more U like it. Instead of building a whole new driving assistance app from scratch, it utilise the availability that Google and Android already provided, therefore compatibility to user and system is not an issue. Native language barrier is not an issue as well. Drivemode harmonise basic needs when driving (navigation, entertainment, messaging, and other) in one roof as the UI for you to be able to concentrate on driving, more, to set your mobile, less. The idea of overlaying apps is simpy smart!
Needs more function on the home screen, especially for music control. Having to swipe, hit two other options, and leave the app to pick music actually uses more steps than otherwise. The way Android Auto does it is much less distracting by putting controls right on the home screen so you can resume or skip ahead right away.
I have recently got a new phone. A Samsung S7, when a message comes in and auto reads and then asks me to "reply to message" I start saying my message and it will bleep again and as a result will only record a portion of my message. So I wait now until it bleeps twice but when I start talking it comes back with "sorry, didn't get that..." and asks me to try again... I have Uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted but it is still the same. Very frustrating because I can no longer reply to messages.
I absolutely love this app. But fix the volume setting. I am always having to turn up the volume because it seems to reset to a factory level after each text and call. Very annoying. Otherwise everything else is great!
Latest update keeps this app awake all day. Has used 17%-30% of my battery for the last several days. Please fix. Also Google now / Google assistant voice detection does not work when this app is open. This is frustrating.
I've tried MANY apps (like 20 or so) trying to find one that allows me to send texts and make calls safely while driving, and have been disappointed time and time again. THIS ONE DELIVERS. I barely have to look at my phone now. Very stable on my Note 5, nice big buttons, voice guidance is awesome, and since my dashboard lights don't work I love the speedometer! Gladly paid the $2.99 for the full version, although it pretty much did everything I wanted with the original free version. These guys know what they're doing and my search is over. Thank you!
