About this app

Driving Detective automagically detects when you are in a moving vehicle and toggles Do Not Disturb on, silencing alerts for the duration of the drive. Normal operation is restored after you exit the vehicle.

Using mobile devices while driving is extremely dangerous. Drivers have a responsibility towards themselves and towards the other traffic participants to not use their phones when they are driving.

Notifications grab the user's attention. Unfortunately, they also distract drivers. Silencing alerts while driving reduces the urge to interact with mobile devices.

Do Not Disturb is an Android feature which gives the user control over alerts, specifically which alerts are allowed to notify the user and when.

Driving Detective does not use any GPS data to detect driving. Detection is done completely on device. Detection stops either by walking a short distance away from the car, or remaining parked for more than 15 minutes.

The app does not interfere with car displays, users should be able to take calls without problems.

I have my settings in priority only and works like a charm. The only downside is the application can't tell the difference between being used in the car or keep in the pocket while I'm listening to music with my headphone. It would be better is the app can activate by itself only when the phone is connected to a specific Bluetooth device, that it'd be worth paying for it.

App is total garbage. Standing still and it thinks I am driving. Doesn't work. Doesn't come out of do not disturb after done driving. My previous review of the app disappeared. Tried to reach out to the app developer and no response. Not sure why this isn't built into android phones. Latest issue app determined I was driving when not and missed some phone calls. Would be great if the creator off the app would get back to you. App developer is non responsive. Would give zero stars if I could.

This app shouldn't need to exits - Google's notifications whilst in driving mode should be extremely limited by default - let alone the pop up PiP window! This can be disabled by press holding maps, going to info, and disabling pip. Well done for providing this feature - it has probably saved someone's life already.
