This new mobile application reads text messages and emails aloud and automatically responds without users touching the mobile phone while driving. I used the free version on my 8900 and it worked like a charm.
DriveSafe.ly, a free mobile application that reads text messages (SMS) and emails aloud and automatically responds, has officially launched. After several months of beta testing, DriveSafe.ly is ready to launch a full version of its application, which will be universally available as a free download for consumers. This free, easy-to-use application was designed specifically to help combat the dangerous, often deadly trend of “texting while driving.” The full version will offer more robust features and functionality than the beta version such as a more diverse word bank, a variety of additional options and a whole new look.
DriveSafe.ly features one-touch activation, making it truly hands free and easy for drivers to turn on before driving. The free application reads up to 25-words per message, reads text message and email shorthand and features a text auto-responder. A premium version is also available for a one-time $13.95 charge for the life of your phone, or by subscription at $3.95 per month. “DriveSafe.ly Pro” features the choice of a female or male voice and a text and email auto-responder. The premium version also delivers 500-word maximum message reads and eliminates ad-supported messages. Premium users will only receive essential service messages.
Both versions are Bluetooth compatible and work with a growing number of mobile phones from all service providers.
