The bad first: Compass off by about 180 degrees (while other compass apps on my phone are working fine). Advertised auto SMS function does not exist. I would like to be able to freely choose the number of pages I use. Music player control keeps crashing. Now the good: Despite the above, this app does a SUPERB job at keeping the information and functions that I need while driving easily accessible with minimum distraction, while keeping everything that I don't want off my mind. Thank you!

I wasn't 100% sure on this app at first but found the Media mode using the phone in portrait orientation works really well for me. I use it in conjunction with Google voice commands and Spotify. I found that they responded quickly to my email when I asked questions. I would have rated as 5 stars but for the lack of Spotify integration. You are unable to load Spotify Playlists as one touch media buttons. Would be great to see in the near future. Great app, well worth the cost. Thanks

I've been running this app since forever. I still love how simplified it makes everything but now for some reason it's announcing speed limit changes and I can't get it to stop.. very annoying, I may have to look for another app.
