Hi!Way


Move over Siri... Hi!Way does what you really need, WHEN you need it most: safe voice-controlled messaging while driving.

Hi!Way is a sophisticated speech-to-text / text-to-speech app that lets you listen and reply to texts and emails while you're driving – totally handsfree.


WORKS WITH:
• Speakerphone; or
• Headphones (with mic); or
• Most media-supported Bluetooth* devices


FEATURES:

• Listen to incoming texts and emails while you’re driving
• Reply by voice and have the message returned as a text or email
• Say, “Ignore”, if you don’t want to hear the incoming message at that moment (it stays in the messaging application so you can see it later)
• Say, “Call”, if you’d prefer to ring back
• Option to check your voice reply message for transcription accuracy before Hi!Way sends it
• Auto mode (if you select this mode: Hi!Way automatically launches and runs when your driving speed exceeds 5mph, then automatically shuts off when motion is no longer detected. You never need to remember to turn Hi!Way On or Off!)


BENEFITS:

• 100% handsfree! No more distracted driving, no more traffic citations
• Utilizes industry-leading speech-to-text and text-to-speech technology to provide the best possible user experience and app performance
• Simple UI, with comprehensive Settings so you can fully customize your Hi!Way experience on the road or off

- Tested on Android 2.2+ (Froyo); 2.3+ (Gingerbread); and 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich).

- Major bug fixes.

*Punctuation can be added during dictation. For example: “How are you question mark” will give you the text: “How are you?”

No Bluetooth connection This app would get a higher rating if I didn't have to scream at my phone while I was driving because it won't let me control it with my Jawbone Era Bluetooth headset. Please fix this as it is pointless to have this app without using a Bluetooth to control it.

Not all it's cracked up to be! The app is "functional" but didn't respond to voice input well.

Almost perfect, needs to connect to Bluetooth mic Sleek, clean user interface which actually has a landscape mode unlike other SMS readers. (Don't they get it?) Only issue is that it doesn't seem to use the Bluetooth microphone; I have to shout voice commands when I'm in the car.

I love this program!! Finally a truly hands free Bluetooth SMS reader that not only works as advertised but is also absolutely amazing by letting me use voice commands to reply, call, ignore and more. The option to listen to your reply is brilliant. It's so easy to use and only requires minor option changes in your SMS program of choice (I use Go SMS Pro) to operate, unlike it's many competitor's. A must for true hands free SMS & Email voice op program. I'd like to initiate a SMS with it, I hope a next update will let me.
