    A convenient way to safely get things done while you drive

    • Unique idea
    • Well-designed user interface
    • Hands-free replying
    • Twitchy alerts
    • No zoom function
    • Missing the best parts

    "Freedom Through Hands Free"


    AutoMate looks to bring the form and functionality needed for your ride. Rather than have to use your hands, let AutoMate bring commonly used services to you, through the power of voice. With a number of voice-activated functions, your ride will be smooth and safe.


    It's a unique concept with plenty of potential. The user interface is designed well with easily navigable menus and clear options and buttons. Hands free replying is very useful for the chatty driver. It loads up quickly and seems to perform well.


    The camera alerts seem to be a little twitchy, going off when they shouldn't. The street names on the map should be a bit larger and easier to read. Add zoom to the map to fix this. Some of the best features are locked up in the premium version.

    I really love this app and I think it's really underrated. In my opinion it's better than both Drive mode and Google's Android auto when it comes to features. Only thing left is a better interface

    Haven't used it extensively, but seems to be way better than Android Auto which is too limited in its integration with other apps

    The user interface is someone complicated. Just seems like way to many options especially compared to Android auto. Over all I like it, but you need to spend alot of time to understand it.

    This app is superior to android auto in every way. I upgraded to premium after just a few minutes usage. I do have one request though, please can we have more control on the speed based volume level pleeeeeease? It's too quiet at low speeds, I'd really like to be able to set my OWN volume levels for different speeds, then the app would be perfect and you'll have my eternal gratitude ❤️

    Good Software with a couple of Bugs in Android O. 1) doesn't recognize the picture in picture Mode with Google maps so this map is on and the Pip Mode. 2) although anti sleep is active like the app told me to the screen alwasy goes Black.
