    DriveSafe.ly In Open Beta



    DriveSafe.ly has created a very useful app for all us who live in a state (CA and NJ to name a couple), where
    texting while driving is now ilegal. This app speaks email messages to you and sends an auto-response that says that you
    are not available. Hopefully drivers will begin to use this app and not reply while on the road as a recent study by Car and
    Driver states that messaging while driving is more dangerous than being under the influence of alcohol or marijuana!

    For more info on this application and to download your copy, point your Blackberry browser here.

    downloaded to my storm this morning... initial results are it works well with text messages but not so much with emails (no responses sent nor did my emails get read out). Would like to see the next edition be able to respond to BBM's. Great concept can't wait to see where they go with it.

    Used it with my Tour this morning and pretty disappointing to say the least. The only thing that got read out loud were some cheesy ads reminding me that I was on the trial version. So out of 85 emails, none were read back to me. This app gets the big thumbs down.

    Thumbs up Drivesafe.ly BB Text to Speech

    This is a great app, it's an TTS (Text to Speech) for BB and Android mobile platforms. The voices are very well done and it reads back quickly. Currently in beta but if you sign up for the Beta and "Fan" them on Facebook, they'll send you a Purchase code to Premium for free within a couple days.

    I highly suggest this fo anyone who drives or flies.

    Ok, got upgraded to Premium, the added features make it even more worthwhile of an app. The issue (possible) is that I seem to be having some compatibility issues (likely due to being on OS .191) so going to drop back down to OS .142 and see how things work out.
