  • Doesn’t work to me

  • Blah

  • Auto-reply no longer works

    By Norm
    Auto reply to sms no longer works on this app. Used to work great. Now it’s useless to me until that feature is fixed.
  • Used to be a great app

    By Ccdcline713
    I have had this app for several years and when it first came out I was like AWESOME. No more worries about distractions while I was driving and the auto text message worked great. All my friends and family would comment on the text they received and signed up afterwards. Now that feature does not work. I used to auto reply to EVERY call and text with a text message I customized. I could be awesome again but now it is one more app taking up space on my phone.
  • Great concept but is not compatible with iMessage

    By movie reviewer101
    Can’t wait till I can use this app with iMessage. It’s a great idea but it’s kind of pointless until the update is made.
  • Useless

    By LovinTheZombie
    I have to turn off IMessage while driving. When I do that no one with IMessage can send me messages, including my kids. Had calls that continued to come through and texts did not. I had my friend text me and it didn’t come though. Until this app is compatible with IMessage, it is useless for me and my family.
  • Text alerts quit working

    By ProfessorRaceFan
    When I first installed this app, it worked great. But for some reason the text alerts no longer work - which is why I liked the app in the first place! I've tried deleting and reinstalling several times, changing the settings, and any other adjustment I can think of but still can't get the automatic text reply to work. So, so long AT&T Drive Mode. Good idea gone wrong.
  • This does not work

    By Scooter439
    I have turned it on and driven with it multiple times. It does not block notifications or prevent me from using my phone.
  • Silences charging confirmation beep

    By Pangloss the Movie Critic
    Installed this app and turned it on looking forward to having it silence incoming text alerts while driving . I accepted the basic defaults. I noticed that whenever I would place the phone on it’s charging base there was no confirming beep. This was at home not on the road. Uninstalled the app immediately and the charging confirmation beep returned. This app needs a lot of work in my opinion.
  • GREAT APP!!! 🎉🎊🎊🎉

    By SistahSan
    I don’t know why so many people seem to be having problems with this app — it’s great and performs exactly as it claims. The app has been installed on my phone (i7), for nearly a year. It works exactly as it should and has never failed. The most ‘annoying’ aspect of the app is that it doesn’t automatically distinguish whether I’m in the driver’s seat or passenger seat. Fortunately, as soon as the app opens, it gives you a chance to say you’re a passenger — not driving. I have several family members, and friends, who also use the app. I often get a text response to let me know they’re driving and unable to respond. It’s simple, it’s clear and, most importantly, IT WORKS!!!
