Well worth the money This is the only dock that actually does read SMS and can reply without touching the screen. Only one I found which actually understand speech. Fairly accurate as well, certainly worth the price considering the $400 fine for using phone to send/read SMS in traffic unless hand free. Would be 5 star if had more verbal commands like volume control.

Great App, Great Support! I had an issue with the app not launching another app properly and the creator Warren, was able to track down and fix the issue. He is including the fix in the next release I also seemed to have an issue with running hangouts as the default SMS app and UCD picking up the text messages. I had a nice little correspondence with Warren and he instructed me to restart the phone and reinstall the app and try again. I then realized I had already reinstalled in the recent past. I gave it another quick test and voila it did indeed work. I recommend getting a smartphone dock for your car and using this app for when you are on the road. It's fantastic and so is the developer behind it! I hear that if/when google expands or creates the API for hangouts that integration with hangouts may make its way to UCD. Thanks for making a great app! Keep up the good work!
