Drive safely, use DriveSafe.ly by arvid
It happened already more than once to me that I was driving and I wanted to see what the text was about I just received but (un)fortunately it is illegal to operate a mobile device while driving so I had to wait until I could pull over at a gas station. Sometimes you just can’t wait until you come to a stand-still but it is not worth it risking an accident or a ticket to just read a text. I only noticed three glitches while using DriveSafe.ly. One of them being that the voice starts reading out the message, when the notification sound of a new message is still playing. This can cause that you miss out on important things. Second; doesn’t work perfect with all media-players. The voice reads out the message while a song was playing. And third but not less important; to use the Pro-version you have to either pay a monthly or an annual fee. I’d rather pay a fixed price for the app then having a subscription. For me the free app offers sufficient options to keep on using it, I guess that for the real road warrior you would want to have those additional features as well.
