peejayw: Works fine on my Nexus 4. Auto-response while driving would be a great feature.


This app does that and more including reading out your messages and announcing who is sending the message.

mmlakeman: hi - works really well on my S3! Just out of interest what tools did you use to create the app?


I made it in VB for Android

Really fast and easy to use.

Unfortunately too buggy for me. Primarily, it doesn't understand my voice commands. Must be my England. Exactly the set of features I'm looking for though if I can find another that works. (Galaxy S2 JB)




Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005
ROM: Stock Telecom release 4.4.2

If you can't fix it with a Big Hammer, chances are you've got an electrical problem!

I havent tried talking to it (in fact I didnt know you could till now :). I use it to read messages when I am driving, and respond to the sender that I am driving and will contact them later.

Warning, when using it to listen to music via bluetooth at a BBQ gathering, it might pay to turn it off or else you might get the same thing happen where a mate text a pile of expletives and it read it out to the women and children who were in attendance :)
