Works Wonderfully! I was looking for an app that would force us to put our phones down while in the car, and this works great! It allows calls through if you are connected to a hands-free device (my Bluetooth in my car for me), and blocks all texts. Even better, is that the texting party gets a reply back stating you are driving and will reply soon. Still better is that I can customize this reply message. Just don't exceed the 160-charachter limit in your reply message. If you do, the app will shut down when a text is received and allow the text to come through and not reply to the texting party. Thanks!
Doesn't work anymore I loved this app and used it all the time without ever having a problem. I think my phone autoinstalled the latest update and now it won't launch when I tap the widget on my home screen. I tried activating the app through my apps menu and it will open, but it still won't activate like it's supposed to in order to block my calls and autorespond to texts. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but still having the same issue. Will improve my rating of this app once the issue is resolved.
KitKat users - try Sprint's version of this app, Sprint Drive First I have used this app for a long time and LOVED it. However now that my S4 Mini upgraded to KitKat it no longer works. :( I hope the issue is fixed quickly! I have looked and no other app compares to Safely Go! Update: Received a reply from customer service that there is not an update currently scheduled to fix the glitch with KitKat, but that Sprint's version will work with other carriers. I have tried it and LOVE it! It turns on by itself when it detects that you are driving. If you are a passenger, you can turn it off. Would like to see that in the update for Safely Go too. Thanks Safely!!!
how to enable app Okay I figured it out but seriously you need to better explain this in your tutorial! For those also thinking this does not work you have to open the app and click on the on the large car in the center of the screen that is what turns the app on. then a new screen will pop up with your 3 contacts, 3 apps and an emergancy call button! I wish it really was just a one click that when I when I click on the wiget it automatically start but nope open the app then click on the car!! Great app though I am excited to not have the distraction/tempation while driving. I installed app and I cannot figure out to use it on the road. I was excited to use it when I went ot get in my car. I clicked on Safely go only to brought to a home page that I could change setting and easily click out of to go to other apps. Tried changing to driving mode on my Samsung Galaxy S3 only be able to use all my usual apps and write texts still. Am I missing something? How do I enable app for driving? I would love to send the automatic messages and stop myself from the distraction of my smartphone.
So far love it I have a droid RAZR and it works great. I love that you can modify the outgoing message, but the best feature is that if someone sends you a Txt it does not send you the notification until you close out of the app. I think that is my biggest problem is constantly checking my phone to see if I got a Txt, now I won't be tempted. Thank you for a great app.
Doesn't work but looks nice... App is nonfunctional on my HTC ONE M8. Opened and configured the app, noticed it wasn't on while driving and read that it has to be manually activated (total turn off, by the way) so tried that and no dice. Hitting the button in the app just sends me to the home screen and the widget does nothing. Dev should consider adding GPS detection capability as an opt in for users (like myself) who would utilize the functionality.
