If you can't get my app to work: before leaving negative reviews...

I respond quickly. We have solved many problems (usually with the Samsung software and not my app)
If you can't get your phone to wake to your voice w/o my app, neither Free nor Pro will fix it :(
S5 owners: enable car mode for voice wake up to work. Now switches from Drive Link too!
Try Free before buying Pro!
Your Galaxy Note 3 does always listening voice wake-up similar to the advertised "Okay, Google Now" Motorola Touchless Control on the Moto-X!
#1 You must say "Hi Galaxy" (while the screen is off)
#2 Crippled SVoice will try to service you :-(
No way to fix #1 on the Note3 (you can set your own wake-up command on the S5), but #2 can be solved with my little app: whenever S Voice would start, you are redirected to Google Voice Search

Option to hide notification icon
Offline announce mode: Instead of Google Voice Search, you can have the phone announce pre-selected information, when you wake it up by saying "Hi Galaxy". It's convenient when abroad, since without data connection neither S Voice nor Google Search could do anything. Select Offline announce mode in Settings, or have it auto enable while offline. Say "Hi Galaxy" (or "Time Galaxy") to hear info with the phone in the pocket.
It can announce: time, battery, or any notification using my other app Touchless Notifications.
Note: For S for Switch Voice Pro users the Trial reminders are disabled in Touchless Notifications Free, when it is started by S for Switch Voice offline mode. The free reminders are there when other functions are used http://goo.gl/bXVWFB
