    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"

    THE VERDICT

    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.

    THE PROS

    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 CONS

    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.

    UI is a lot worse in the new version. Every button seems to have gotten even smaller in landscape mode, as well as that, swiping in the music tab now barely works. Takes at least 3 attempts to get the swipe right. Can't exactly use the buttons instead as I'd need a microscope for that!

    Buggy, didn't work correctly, had to go out of the app for everything then back into the app. Not very driver friendly.

    Very nice, complete, lots of good tools but very finiky, it messes up with the phone functions. Poor integration with Google assistant. Please fix in next updates. Thanks!
