Bill Doesn't work on my Samsung galaxy S6 PLEASE HELP!!!!!! Doesn't rotate icons even when enabling all triggers to initiate dock mode, all other functions seem ok.

Lock screen This app is very useful. It does what is supposed to do. The only thing I suggest is to disable the lock screen when car mode is enabled. It's very annoyng and unsafe to type the PIN, pattern or swipe the fingerprint while driving.

Jenny Saucerman

Doesn't work on the S6. The tiles are handy though.

Dave Rant

Great app Does exactly what phones need in the car

Ron Swift

Leader1 Using app for an entirely different purpose; as a series of icon pages. Works to perfection! Your latest updates and appearance and performance upgrades are superb! Thanks for an excellent app!

A Google User

Great Simple... Does what I want without the silly stuff.

Alex Krejcie

Does what I need perfectly I just needed a screen override when connected to BT and large icons. Works perfect! Simple and easy to set up.

Ephraim Bennett

This widget was great until they redesigned it. It's now counter intuitive and useless.

Donna Mackness

Great Simple functional no gimmicks or ads....paid for full to support developer and to get full use

Michael Schmidt

Purchased pro to help support the dev I want to see this widget continue with great support and features, so I'm putting my money where my mouth is.

Van So

Use it car mode

Harith Moin

Easy to configure. Makes using it in the car much safer!

Andrew Little

Great! Simple and works.

Joe Thomas

Awsome App. This is one of the best app I have ever used. Very useful while driving. UI is simple and neat. Auto start on detecting the blue tooth is a nice feature. Works well with bluetooth in my car. Auto open of the App works well. I would prefer, Car widget close the opened app when it exit form the car mode. Option to auto open of more than one app will be good to have. But all in all, an excellent app.

Will Shaw

Works well This app works nearly perfect. The only complaint I have is that the brightness setting doesn't seem to work. I put it on auto thinking it would brighten the screen during the day and dim the screen at night, but it seems to stay the same level of brightness.

Bob Landry

Super App Use it all the time

Jeffrey Meadows

Not user friendly Inductions are not clear, no matter what I try it doesn't work

Philip Smith

Simple and automagic Starts on Bluetooth devices connect. Could use speedo and weather at a glace.

JT Fazz

Disappointing. Get trial app first and make sure it works on your phone I couldn't get this app to work on my Galaxy S3. It hangs up when trying to find my paired Bluetooth devices (either currently paired or unpaired). Also it instructs me to clear the default car dock app. When it brings up the apparent conflicting app (which is the Android system app) it has no default to clear. The enable car mode setting is grayed out. I work in the wireless industry and am very tech savvy. I played around with this thing trying to figure it out and get it to work and it just won't. Should have tried to trial version and saved myself a couple of bucks.

Frank Herbert

Brilliant Best I've found and good settings for auto start etc.

Chris Kosseff

Don't waste your money Unable to get the pro version to work. The lite version simply tried to get you to purchase the pro version.

Steve Camilleri

The perfect solution. This is an ideal car dock replacement while still allowing full use of your regular phone features and home scren functions.

David Coffill

A bit difficult The app is good, but a bit difficult to set additional apps. I would also like to set VZ Navigator as default but it won't allow that app to be used.

Ti Yam

Not working after update It was working fine on my note 2 until new update last week. It no longer trigger in car mode unless I restart the phone.

Ramonito Copreros

LG Optimus 2x App disappears at reboot. Also only 1 page and 6 icons available for screen display

Jim Thomas

Does not work on my Verizon Samsung SCH-I535 (S3) I get "In car mode disabled. Enable it in widget settings in order to use shortcut" error. I have spent at least 1 hour futzing with this app and the setting on my device to get this to work to no avail. Any suggestions?

Laban Robokoff

Very Nice As a locksmith I have a roll similar to a delivery driver. The phone is hard to use while driving and this allows two things. easy access to your driving apps and wallpaper visibility. However adding a contact to the list will more often than not freeze up the phone. I would also like it to automaticly enable gps when in driving mode.

Michael Yao

Only the features you need Does what you need without any unnecessary features (I'm pretty sure most cars already have a speedometer). Automatic Bluetooth, wifi, and media volume control are pretty sweet. Using apex launcher to get it to go into landscape mode.

Nathan F

10 stars and more! This works brilliantly with widget windows and dock for Droid . I can open all apps and navigate with one thumb. If your fingers are labour intensive, this is the app for YOU.

S Bennett

Please add a landscape widget for 5 stars. Needs a second widget that is landscape. Just make it icon only. TY

Dave Gallop

Thanks This is what anyone and everyone who has Bluetooth in their car should use. Saves all the messing around with getting connected and all that 'distraction' when driving.

Dennis Seely

Wonder Widget Simple. Works. Flexible. I have four of the widgets on one screen of Galaxy Tab 10.1 Its Control Central Love it

Jerryq Kelley

LOVE IT I use it and its cool and just adds flavor to the phone

Jeff Todd

Applications? Why cant i add applications to shortcut tab dude? Keeps crashing...

Joe Rochinski

Upgrading to pro is a pain Upgrading to pro means you have to back up your settings, delete the free widget, install the pro widget, restore your settings, then uninstall the free widget. What a pain.

Nelson Sr Yu

Can't add anything using Note 2. This is actually getting worst. First I cannot resize or crop picture for icon. Now it cannot even add anything other than what was already existing prior to update.

Farid Ahmed

Missing auto text reply while driving... Will give more start if this feature would be implemented.

Dave Rant

Great app Does exactly what phones need in the car

spankyblu

What's the difference? It's nice but I don't see any difference between the pro and the versions

Kenny Best Jr.

Nice but needs some work, like the Pro version could be a lot more elaborate and equipped with more options than free version.

spankyblu

What's the difference? It's great, but it's a huge battery killer

Trevor Annis

I do like this App BUT... Why does the app remove itself and my shortcuts when you do an update. It is getting really annoying

Mike Agosta

Doesn't even load after last update The app/widget is now completely useless.

Michael Silva

Not working with Android 4.2.2 Not working after last update, please fix.

Harold Vlatard

Nice app...till yesterday when I upgrade the app. Now it doesn't starts. The widget freeze in "thinking mode" and then it stops. My phone is a S3 (i9300) with nova launcher. The app I use is Pro Version (yes I pay for it)

Almost perfect except.... You have to customize every single widget as there is no option for a template. Sometimes the change of aspect when rotating the screen doesn't work. I restarted my tablet all of the 10 widgets launcher panels I spent hours creating to launch music playlists were deleted and the backups I made of them don't work. Hours of wasted time.
