Very good, could use improvement Overall I like this app a lot, the various functions it can do make it very useful while driving and you can really customize it a lot. The only problem I have is that the whether widget doesn't seem to work and for some reason the media controls no longer work while I play music. If these two things could be fixed I would give it five stars.
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.
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 :)
After getting the Unlock key.. Seems like a good app, so after I got the 3 day-until trail expires warning I bought the unlock key. Now I cannot set any of the shortcuts in the app. You tap one to set and you get the list of available shortcuts (the camera is no longer listed), when you tap on one of the apps listed... it just executes the app but does not set the shortcut in CarHome???? Gee, glad I paid $4 bucks for this... fail from 5 to 2 stars.
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.
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!
