    It works wonders, instead of playing with you phone. You can respond to texts by voice. The only down side is it will randomly start up if you connect you phone to something Bluetooth. But it gives you the immediate option to shut it down.

  2. guest-avatar

    it's smart and somehow an usefull app ,But it needs to support themming features. Overall sense of this app is just a kid's stuff , you know i means it's funny sound effects for menu and it's visual design. Its not the app everybody would use as default Driving-assist app, there are more great alternatives out there...

  3. guest-avatar

    So helpful. I use it to do everything hands-free. It does have a few hiccups with voice command, but most voice commands do. Thank you for creating this!

    If they could get the bugs out, I'd love it. When it's working, it provides some useful features that I really like. Sometimes it works perfectly, launching shortly after I start driving and stopping shortly after I park. But other times it launches randomly, as if it thinks I'm driving when I'm sitting on the couch or in bed hardly even moving. Makes no sense. That said, I'm still using it, as I haven't really found a better alternative. Hopefully the developers can work out the kinks.

    This is an ok app. It does work well. The only thing I don't like about it and neither do ppl I answer to when I answer with this app after a call or text, is that it sends a BIG AD PROMOTING ITSELF TO THEM. TAKES UP HALF THE TEXT MESSAGE. This is not kool. Other than that the app works pretty good. Not the best and I may look for another one that does not send this type of self promotion with it EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEND A MESSAGE BACK. Hopefully I'll find one soon.

  6. guest-avatar

    I used to use this app before on my previous phone, but that phone couldn't keep up, and the app had some issues back then. Looks like it's had a lot of improvement. I'm really impressed! This app makes handling calls, and texts, GPS, music, and more while driving MUCH safer! 5 stars!

  7. guest-avatar

    It took a little longer time to figure out the operation process but now it pretty good. What up with a might be charged for replying to a message????. Now you might lose me. Hope you understand.

  8. guest-avatar

    Been happily using this app till many months ago, when it started saying it was down while a full update was being carried out. It's been so long I thought the company had died. Just looking on website and play store suggests its not. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, but getting the same result. Any answers please?

  9. guest-avatar

    When your ready to work in the UK... Don't bother to update. Every time I update, I think "Yes, where up and working properly". Until then, don't dangle the carrot! I want fully working Drivemode. I love drivemode when it was working in the UK, so don't sully your name! ARGH. Sort it out. Much love. Update... Still the same 26/02/2020

  10. guest-avatar

    Looked at a number of car dashboard apps. None of them were much good. Even Android Auto was pretty useless over Bluetooth. Then I found this one. Does everything I need and it's basically free! Great work!

    Jennifer Graham


    So unfortunately this app now does not detect that I'm ever driving nor when I stop. I have to start it manually whenever I want to use it. For being advertised as a hands free application, it certainly doesn't meet that standard.

  12. guest-avatar

    No more SMS support? This used to work with texts but after last update now it's not working. Why did they remove this feature? Only reason used it.

  13. guest-avatar

    Another update. Uninstall and, reinstalled. Still doesn't work, still being "tuned up". Such a shame. I've given it months, time to give up.

  14. guest-avatar

    Great app and voice command is awesome compared to 3 other apps I use for driving. Would love to see a more user-friendly main page to use during driving.

  15. guest-avatar

    Works pretty well, but the auto off feature doesn't work. The app stays on well after leaving my car and disconnecting from Bluetooth.

  16. guest-avatar

    Very nice app but im having a hard time using tab, im using gesture and lots are using it and the tab is block it, using a bigger tab solve this problem but its too big, i suggest to make the tab float, im using p30pro with gesture navigation

  17. guest-avatar

    So far so good. Reasonably easy to manuver. Hoping for more voices to choose from and to get pandora in music choices.

  18. guest-avatar

    When I first got this app it was bulletproof. Now every 3rd or 4th reply of a text cannot be sent even after reciting what I said. Will get better review if it gets fixed. On a Note9...

    I love this app when I get in the car I just turn my Drivemode app on hands-free I can pay attention to the road if I needed to read my messages the Drivemode app read them back to me..thank you

  20. guest-avatar

    Works great, and everybody should use it, everyone are on there phone and trying to drive

  21. guest-avatar

    It's ok. The calling feature doesn't work & replying to messages most of the time it gets the response wrong

  22. guest-avatar

    When not sucking, is ok. Biggest problem is voice commands don't work

  23. guest-avatar

    Recent update, app starts thinks I'm driving when typing a text. Now more steps to close app.

  24. guest-avatar

    Great app. Easy to use and works brilliantly.

  25. guest-avatar

    It good for car but not good for motor. Should u show all widget in 1 screen to easy to access

  26. guest-avatar

    90% of the time i try to reply to a text it hears itself saying "Say your message" before i can say my message. Then when i say "Try again" because i obviously don't intebd to say "Say your message" it sends that as my message. Person i usually text finds it hilarious but it's frustrating to not be able to dictate my message. Google Assistant usually works better but i like the interface of Drivemode.

  27. guest-avatar

    I have a Moto Z3 running Android 9. This app only sees the contacts I have recently entered. Any contact restored from a backup, which would be the majority of my contacts, is invisible to this app. Support is sporadic and left me dangling without a solution so I am uninstalling and will try something else...even though I like DriveMode's interface very much.

    This app seems to be the best option of a whole field of terrible. Its function is inconsistent. Sometimes the voice to text is spot on. Most of the time I have to repeat and over articulate every message more than once. The new updates with automatic send without voice command has been a little embrassing when it gets the message wrong and sends it before I can get it to get a revision. I only use this app when I am driving. If I could find something better, I would switch immediately.

  29. guest-avatar

    Always great! Very convenient!

  30. guest-avatar

    Great app for driving with excellent message handling. This was until it was taken down for "tune up". This was months ago and even though the app was updated in November 2019, it still does not work. WHY?! Unfortunately although it is/was the best program of its type around, until it is sorted it is not worth all the disappointment.

  31. guest-avatar

    I have been using this app for over a year now. I strongly recommend this app for those that want a hands free experience. It's not just for while you are driving, although its amazing for that. I also use it while I'm in the kitchen. If I'm doing dishes or cooking I'll put the app on and keep working. I especially like that this app will temporarily pause the video I'm watching/listening to, informing me I got a message. Once I've responded my video starts right back up. Perfect.

  32. guest-avatar

    Works great, except the newest version on my new phone (May 2019) the clock only shows the time the app started. It worked once since then. Dec. 19, 2019 deleted that version and reinstalled the newest. The clock worked again for a couple days yet the main screen got messed up with the music app somehow. Disappointing. Changing music by a finger stroke still makes it worth keeping.

    I absolutely love this app. And so far the past 5 days, I have not had any ad interruption like most apps have lots of ads. I love the factthat it has navigation function, contact list, and Google talk all on one spot for easy access on your screen. I have mine set up to automatically connect to bluetooth to my 2015 Camaro. I gave it 5 stars cause of the accessibility and awesome function it provides. Thanks guys for making driving safer. 😉

  34. guest-avatar

    I love hearing and the ability to respond to my messages. I also love the fact if you didn't quite understand the message you can have drive mode repeat the message with name of sender all with no handed or eyes as you continue to focus on the road and your surroundings. Thank you for such a great job in development and delivery.

  35. guest-avatar

    Love this app! It dictates new messages to me while I'm driving, waits for my voice commands to reply, takes my voice message and reads it back to me too! Completely hands free 👍 I also love that you can customize it with tons of options, a super easy to navigate menu with voice feedback that features your favorite apps, contacts and destinations. The only thing I would add is an option to repeat incoming messages for times when I didn't catch it when it first played 😉

  36. guest-avatar

    My go to app for driving. One star off. Auto launch needs tweaking. App often doesn't launch till I've been driving for 5 to 10 mins. Maybe needs a sensitivity option to tune to the handset? NFC tag would be a good solution too. Cheers 😊

  37. guest-avatar

    Really helps me while I'm driving to stay focused on the road

    Disappointing. Touted as an alternative to Android Auto it is not as simple, nor as user friendly as Android Auto. Constantly having to tap here, swipe there, watch as the app launched Waze or Spotify and then have to constantly tap my back into the app if I wanted to use other functions. Just too complicated.

  39. guest-avatar

    Best driving app I've used by far.

  40. guest-avatar

    Working great so far. What are the addon/premium options?

  41. guest-avatar

    Used to love this app but it stopped working a few months ago with the message 'time for a tune-up' have uninstalled and reinstalled and still no joy. Sad because it used to be a useful app but now just doesn't work.

  42. guest-avatar

    I like it. But I have paid version and it crashes sometimes when dealing with voice to texts. It also only allows to reply to messenger, whats app etc messages and, not instigate a new voice to text message.

  43. guest-avatar

    Really terrific UI, easy to navigate around and works with voice quite well. Occasionally it does not recognize being in my car but I make sure I'm good to drive before I go.

  44. guest-avatar

    Love the app. Glad I purchased the full version. It has some limitations but it works hand in hand very well with my Echo Auto. I'm able to run both simultaneously. And what one wont do, the other does. Thanks again

  45. guest-avatar

    Great concept in theory but the app is clunky. When I talk it only listens half the time. Other times it randomly asks me questions as if I am trying to use one of the features when all I'm doing is simply driving.

  46. guest-avatar

    Michael Bethell


    At first I was optimistic but quickly learned if not plugged in it is a big battery draw. Had hoped it would open on its own when receiving a message rather than turning it on and off.

  47. guest-avatar

    Texting/Messaging is bugged. Everytime I send out a text using this app it sends a double message and it's really annoying to both the people I'm texting and myself.

  48. guest-avatar

    Far better than android auto, makes it easy to use your phone without taking your eyes off the road. Devs actually reply to feedback, which is a plus.

  49. guest-avatar

    Supposedly this app has just been updated. I installed it but all it says is time for a tune up. It doesn't work at all. Only options is more info or ok. Useless app

    The ease of use is unbeatable. And visually, it is very user friendly. By far my favorite driving app.. Great work team and thank you.

  51. guest-avatar

    Great app! Announces, reads and let's you respond to texts completely hands free. Turns on and off with the car Bluetooth. Love it.

  52. guest-avatar

    Edward Crabtree


    So totally confused. Last summer the developer took the app down for updates and yet I am still getting the "time for a tune up" message everytime I open the app.

  53. guest-avatar

    Stupid app wouldn't answer my phone & wouldn't let me answer either!! Uninstalled the useless thing!

  54. guest-avatar

    This app is a very top notch app. I love it use it all the time. Love how it auto starts when i get moving and all its hands free options.

  55. guest-avatar

    yes!!!! i will recommend it it is safe driving when you have an app so great that you don't have to bother with your cell phone it does the work for you

  56. guest-avatar

    This is my go-to app when I'm driving. Love the feature set and app integration. Just wish it were possible to support hands-free messaging now that RCS has been enabled by Google...

  57. guest-avatar

    Was working fine until a couple of months ago. Now it will not work at all, constant messages about time for a tune up so you can't use the app

    Was using for over a year but then keep going for updates and for past few months unable to use as the updates it's now been 6 months and still not able to use was a good app befor

    Does not send text messages. Its says it sent on my end but the messages are never recieved. Works good with spotify and making calls though.

    Have had this program Drivemode for 3 weeks , I especially like the hands free texting but over all I am very happy with this appt and would recommend to anyone that's ask.

  62. guest-avatar

    I would love it if it would auto pop up a way to send text msg replies by voice. Otherwise everything is fantastic for nearly 99.9 percent hands off ur phone driving.

    Haven't been able to use this app for ages, since about October. Says tune up but I can see updates have been implemented. I've tried to reinstall more than once... It's a shame because I like this app and there's not another like it... Is it certain phones?

    Extremely helpful app, launch by voice (yo DriveMode) always works great. Simple, clean UI.

  65. guest-avatar

    Good app but it keeps crashing. Coming on and off by ittself. I changed the settings nothing works

  66. guest-avatar

    Thus used to be great, after the latest update auto launch doesn't work

  67. guest-avatar

    Very helpful in my driving. I don't have to touch my phone while driving when texting and receiving call. Thanks a lot.

  68. guest-avatar

    Not easy to navigate

  69. guest-avatar

    Usually pretty good, system update problems. Won't connect with my Prius after last Android update

  70. guest-avatar

    Its a good app which is very helpful during driving.

  71. guest-avatar

    I love this app it really works when your driving and your hands are really free ❤😁

  73. guest-avatar

    This is a fantastic app for drivers Please hurry up with update missing it

  76. guest-avatar

    It's pretty good & it functions with small improvements.

  77. guest-avatar

    Of all the 'hands free' apps I've tried, this is the only one that does what I need.

    Ok, every version of this app after 7.5.11 just says "Time for a tune up" and shuts down. So that's almost a year now that they've been working on this and still nothing - after each update i have to uninstall the latest version and go back to the one that does work. I find it a bit telling that the tune up coincides with the introduction of GDPR in the EU. If that's the case, just say so and save your (potential) users a lot of frustration (and avoid getting reviews like this)

    It's UI is absolutely friendly and easy to navigate, use, and control. The biggest complaints I have is that it's notifications when you get a text can be super annoying, with the voice reply being extremely buggy, and the voice for drive mode is absolutely rubbish. It's already using Google's voice reply. why not use Googles Assistant to voice most of it?

    Why at launch it keeps on saying Time for a tune up? It started last September

    One of the best driving apps!

    Very useful. Makes driving safer.

    I have enjoyed using Drivemode for many months but all of a sudden it started acting up. It doesn't acknowledge my voice commands and it won't let me message some people that are in my contacts. It says "no contact found" and it's my daughter in law. It worked so good before the update. I have uninstalled it. I hope it gets better

  84. guest-avatar

    Took a bit for it to correctly tell when i was driving. Used to come on at random times. Then it worked well for a long time but lately it constantly turns itself off and on while I'm driving. Like every few seconds. I've tried updating, nothing changed. It's too distracting now.

  85. guest-avatar

    I like the simplicity of it while I'm driving

    You've killed it?! Finally replaced my crappy replacement phone and now the app is closed. Very disappointing.

    Works well so far. Used for two weeks now.

    Hello everyone, I have read on your website that due to some update related problems we cannot use the app til these problems won't be solved, and that the app won't be shown in the play store. Well I have just downloaded the app from the PS and still can't use it.. am I missing something or is this just a bug? I would love to use the app again, thanks :)

  89. guest-avatar

    I have turned OFF auto launch and this app keeps launching whenever it wants?!How the heck do you not reply to a message using voice? It only let's you respond. I don't want to respond to every text. Just got this as android auto is buggy. Needs to be able to send a text instead of only replying by voice. Also be nice to be able to send a message from the phone. Like if I have a passenger holding my phone while I drive, they should be able to use my phone with Drivemode running in the background

    While yes the app is very helpful and when it works it works amazingly, it also tends to mess up quite a bit more than I'd like for it to do... For instance, if i have it activated it will sometimes send a tiny portion of a conversation I'm having to random people in my Facebook messenger contact list (not my phone contacts my fb contacts) it'll activate when I'm sitting in my recliner at home, and when it's activated I can't place a messenger call at all... Please fix and I'll give you 5 stars!

    So far, so good. Was able to receive FB messages but can't send any unless I'm replying to one. Overall I'm really happy with the app since I can choose my navigation app, music, etc.

  92. guest-avatar

    I have a paid version. It's great in general. But it can't read Hangout Chats messages. Not Google Hangout, Hangout Chats. Google's retiring Hangout and moving on to Hangout Chats, which is used heavily at my work.

  93. guest-avatar

    I definitely like this app, have replaced my phone a few times over the last couple years and always made sure to install it. It does start up at weird times though, like sitting on my bed in my bedroom it tries to start up asking me if I'm driving. I haven't even connected to Bluetooth. Otherwise I recommend it

  94. guest-avatar

    Once you figure out the interface, it's great. Give it a week at least. My car handles messages horribly, so I turned them off and let Drivemode handle it. Also, I love that I can use any music player I want! The larger tab works best for me since my car cradle has side holders that otherwise get in the way. Great app!

    I seem to be unable to get Drivemode to complete a text to voice over my car's Bluetooth connection for incoming SMS text messages. The app recognizes when the car handsfree bluetooth starts and launches. DriveMode will also send an autoreply text (had to set it to recognize SMS notifications to make that work). However no matter what DriveMode bluetooth settings I try (e.g. bluetooth microphone, bluetooth delay, etc.) I cannot get it to read out loud over the car speaker for incoming texts. As a note I AM able to hear and reply to incoming calls over bluetooth via my default Samsung S8 phone app so I know that the vehicle Bluetooth works and is configured properly. Is it possible that the DriveMode app needs to be set to recognize older Bluetooth profiles to make the DriveMode text to voice function to work over the vehicle speakers? I have an older vehicle (2008). Per the manual it lists the required required profiles for the cellular phone as: ●HFP (Hands Free Profile) Ver. 1.0 ●OPP (Object Push Profile) Ver. 1.1 Given that does DriveMode have a Bluetooth mono-audio setting that I might try? Thanks.

    This app is a mess! The User Interface really needs some work. It's like someone took dissimilar apps for specific tasks (Google assistant, launcher, Facebook messenger, etc.) and then threw them together into bigger app. It needs a lot of work to make it look like a professional purpose built app.

  97. guest-avatar

    It just works! Simple and easy.

  98. guest-avatar

    This app is great at tracking your travels, but you can't turn off the quick access that takes up a small portion of your screen. It just stays in front of every app you use, at least I don't know how to turn it off except by closing the app.

  99. guest-avatar

    I liked this app until this week. May due to an update, but all of a sudden I'm getting ads every ten minutes, and other pop-ups when its running. Very distracting and unsafe.( Ads have to be manually closed.) Deleting this now.

    One of the best app for managing your car dashboard....
