New to version 3.0 - Bluetooth Support for Hands Free Bluetooth Adapters!
Note Bluetooth is only supported on Android Versions Jelly Bean and above.
Hands-Free SMS has the following options:
1. Request Reply: If selected, the application will ask you if you would like to reply to each incoming SMS text message. If not selected, then you will not be prompted for a reply.
2. Hands Free Mode: When selected, Hands-Free SMS will automatically turn on your screen, bring the app to the foreground, and start reading your incoming SMS (or ask you if you want it read to you if the next option is selected). When you are done interacting with Hands-Free SMS, the screen will automatically turn off. This setting provides a completely hands free experience without the necessity of keeping the screen on all the time. It is great for saving battery life! When this option is not selected, a notification will be added to the notification bar which you can click on to hear the SMS.
3. Auto Read New SMS: If selected, Hands-Free SMS will automatically read all incoming SMS text messages to you without asking if you would like it read first. When not selected, you will be told who the incoming text message is from, and asked if you want it read to you.
4. Automatic Reply: When selected, Hands-Free SMS will automatically reply to all received SMS messages (only if the app is enabled) with a message of your choosing.
5. Auto Start on SMS: When selected, if the app is not running already, it will provide a notification you can click on to have new SMS messages read aloud.
6. Enable Bluetooth Mode: When selected, the app will connect to a hands free device (headset, car adapter) and perform all speaking and voice recognition functions through that. If no Bluetooth device is available, the app will use the phones speaker as always.
7. Auto Enable on Bluetooth Headset Connect: When selected, the app will automatically enable itself upon connecting to a Bluetooth headset (or hands-free car adapter). The app will disable when the Bluetooth headset is disconnected.
Required Permissions (and why):
1. RECEIVE_SMS/SEND_SMS: Needed so the app can read and send SMS messages.
2. READ_SMS/WRITE_SMS: These permissions allow the app to save outgoing SMS messages to you SMS mailbox just as the standard android SMS application does.
3. READ_CONTACTS: This permission allows the app to read your contacts so that when an SMS text message is received, it can tell you by name who the SMS is from.
4. RECORD_AUDIO: This permission is used by the speech recognizer functionality of the app.
5. WAKE_LOCK: This permission is required to allow the app to turn the screen on in hands free mode.
6. BLUETOOTH/MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS: Required for Bluetooth connectivity.
Note: If you would like to try Hands-Free SMS for free, look for our free version, Hands-Free SMS Lite. Note the free version has some limitations.
Hands Free Messaging Kitt not only looks cool for your passengers but it is designed so that you can keep your eyes 100% on the road whilst your driving. Kitt is your friendly hands free messaging app, Kitt will call you by your name, Kitt will inform you of new messages, Kitt will ask you if you want your new message read out to you, Kitt will ask you if you wish to reply by to your new message simply by talking back to Kitt.
Kitt does come with some Quick Settings that you can change to your liking.
Auto Read Messages - Means Kitt will read out your New Messages without asking for your permission to do so.
Auto Reply To Messages - Means Kitt will ask you to start speaking your reply straight after reading out your new message.
Screen Stay Awake - If this is ticked, your phone will not go to sleep (normally after 15-30 seconds the screen will dim) and will stay on. This option will drain the battery quicker if left on for substantial amounts of time. Handy if used with in car chargers.
Kitt will store an unlimited amount of new messages and will read them out to you one at a time unlike many other voice messaging apps which get confused if you have more than one new message. Along with this no other voice messaging app will ask you for your permission to read out your messages, they normally just read them out, which is not good if your the personal type.
If you have any problems, my email below is only used for customer feedback and is always read by myself. I will do my best to make sure any new features that have been suggested get implemented into the app.
This app uses Google Voice and Text To Speech which is normally preinstalled on all Android phones with Google apps.If you have any problems with this make sure they are installed. This app does not speak to you in the voice of Kitt, Kitt is used as a graphical gimmick and reference to the Voice of the app.
