RadioDrive


RadioDrive is the music app designed for motorcyclists and drivers. It reads out notifications relevant to you in between songs, such as new text messages, weather conditions and more. Now you can stay up-to-date without interrupting your ride or taking your eyes off the road.

Features

- Speaks selected notifications (using Text-to-Speech) in between songs so you can stay focussed on the road
- Reads out new text message info including sender name, time received, and full message
- Reads out local weather conditions including temperature, wind speed and direction
- Missed call notification including caller name and time received
- Current time and phone battery notifications
- Customize which announcements play and how often (all are enabled by default)
- Simple and elegant music player and library browser
- Organise your play queue with gestures - swipe away songs to remove, drag to rearrange
- Shuffle/Repeat
- Safety feature for the road: auto-pauses playback when battery level is low to conserve power for your phone
- No setup required. All your music queued when you first open the app - just hit play and you're off

For Android 4.0 (ICS) and higher.

Genius Exactly what I need for my bike touring. If you could add "distance to next turn" & "total distance remaining" from Google maps navigation, it would be better than perfect!

Great app Great app, but I'd love to see support to control music playback (play, pause, etc..) While wearing a headset with mic. Hard fumbling With your phone to pause or stop music while on the bike!

Absolutely mint. Works perfectly and easy to use. I've been using this on my 200k round trip commute, I wouldn't go without it now.
