    Drivemode: Driving interface's review

    Published: 2015-09-18, by .

    Drivemode - Driving Interface works well when you're driving, doubling as both a turn-by-turn navigation app and a music player that will guide you to your destination

    • Lightweight
    • Runs great
    • Free to use
    • Limited music options
    • Can't search manually

    "A lightweight on-the-road music and navigation app"


    Using Google’s beautiful, minimalist material design a well as voice narration, Drivemode - Driving Interface lets you answer important phone calls, have incoming messages read to you, and listen to your favorite tunes on Google Music or Spotify while you’re behind the wheel, all without interrupting your GPS navigation. If you have Bluetooth in your car, you can turn on Drive Mode automatically. This app also recommends destinations from your text messages or your contacts, a useful feature which lets you get to your destination right away without having to take your eyes off the road.


    Drivemode is surprisingly lightweight, taking up few of your system’s resources. It also runs like a charm, with a simple yet elegant interface. It’s also completely free to try out.


    The music player option is surprisingly limited, and only supports few music players. You can’t search for a direction from Drivemode, instead being limited to addresses you already know or have in your text messages.

    Great and useful app but can still be improved. I can barely understand what the lady says when she reads the message for you.

    Drivemode is by far the best app I have found for this type of operation. It is easy to maneuver through and use. I'm excited to see what else Drivemode, Inc. comes up with.

    Uninstalled because it would auto launch when I was just walking. If I was just a passenger in a car, I would turn it off, and then it would still continue to auto launch even though I didn't want it. So I disabled auto launch. And then I still got annoying notifications to launch it while I was driving. It also had compatibility issues with the Bluetooth in my car. Nice enough interface. But way too annoying with autolaunch and and too confusing to use with the Bluetooth.

    Great app, like what they are trying to do. Would like to see a voice version.
