SafeDrive - which is available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones has been updated and the new features make the application more customizable which is always a bonus in my book.
If you missed our announcement post for SafeDrive - the application is the perfect tool to have in the car as it will read out your emails and text messages, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road. I've used SafeDrive for a while now, along with other similar apps on legacy devices and although they do a great job I did get a bit fed up with having to listen to the whole email if it wasn't anything interesting or urgent. This latest update fixes that little frustration of mine and you will see even more updates to the app in the future.
The new features include:
- Support more voices for short messages, including: Male/Female voice in US English and UK English, Spanish Female, French Female, German Female, Italian Female
- Option to choose which part of the email to be read. (i.e Entire message, Subject only, Sender Name only and Subject and Sender Name)
- Option to limit the number of words of the email body
- Bugs fixed
For just under three bucks SafeDrive could well prevent you from crashing your car. I'd say that price is a bargain.
