Great app! Two requests... This app deserves 5 stars, but I put 3 to hopefully get some developer feedback. I just paid for the license/unlocker. I have two requests: 1) Important: Please ensure that the screen does not turn off or lock during a call while the "keep screen on" setting is enabled. 2) Please enable all features of Car Home Ultra to function when the app is not in the foreground. For example, I do not get speed alarm alerts unless I am on the Dock home page. Great app! Will give 5 stars for feedback :)
Makes phone a great companion in my car Great app. Dev is very responsive and added a feature I requested. I use Tasker with the app, but the Dev keeps adding things that make it less necessary. It's nice to have big buttons that minimize my need to look away from the road when playing podcasts. I prefer the digital speedometer on the app over the analog one that comes with my car. The speed alert helps me to not speed as well.
It's ok but ... What happened to the night mode skin that was green color? It would be great if the home button would take me back to the app, but it takes me back to original home page, then have to touch app to get back. One step too many. The song is not displayed in media controller page when I use songza.
Excellent. Default 4 your Nanna. Possibly simply the best all round app I've encountered yet. For pure "DoesWhatitSays" -edness. Simple, stable, thorough, intuitive. I'm wondering why I don't just operate my fone from here all the time. In fact I would advocate it as a default phone os for the technologically feeble and your nanna.
I wish it would close, when phone removed from dock, like it used to! The latest update v4.08c, dated 6 March 2015,broke the auto shutdown of Car Home Ultra. Manual shutdown now necessary on Galaxy S4 with KitKat. Tech support came to conclusion that it was due to my ROM, but CHU shut down properly with this ROM before the latest update. The ROM didn't change. The app did!
Love this app! (but, Kit Kat problem?) Worth way more than 5 stars to me. Have been using it for quite some time and wouldn't drive without it, but I'm having a problem since I upgraded from a Droid Razr (Jellybean) to Droid Maxx (Kit Kat). Screen always stayed on before, but with new phone it doesn't override the display time out. Perhaps something to do with "active display"? When listening to Pandora, I'm no longer able to see or rate songs. Dev support is great, so hoping for a fix.
