DriveSafe is a simple app that will speak out incoming SMS messages, this is particularly useful if you have a long commute and want to safely be informed of messages without touching the device (as you're a good law abiding driver).

Open the app, tap the button to enable, and tap again to disable.

When enabled, any incoming SMS messages will be spoken like :

"SMS received from 07777777777 message is : Hi, what time will you be home?"

App originally developed to "scratch my own itch", source code available on github:

Disclaimer : If you forget to disable the app when you're finished using it, I'm not held responsible! If you're in a business meeting and the app starts speaking a personal message from your partner then you should have tapped to disable (or set silent mode), you have been warned!
