This week we are thrilled to share that Google has featured Drivemode in the Google Play store. You can find us in their "New and Updated" category and we've even been spotted in the "Trending" category. Our newest update brings full support for Android Nougat (7.0) along with improvements to performance and battery usage. We are taking full advantage of the new features in Nougat to better manage favorite contacts, make outgoing calls, and receive SMS messages. We've also squashed some bugs and added some performance improvements on screens with transparency.
Many thanks to Google Play for featuring Drivemode![/caption]
Our drivers are also showing us some love in their reviews. Here are some recent comments from people driving with Drivemode.
"Had my first real test today with Drivemode. It was really something. I live out in the country and drive to Dallas to work. One way is almost 50 miles. Driving between 80 to 100 miles a day. Drivemode met every expectation that I could imagine. I listened thru the app my favorite pod cast, music and all the while had google maps going to alert me of major traffic jams and delays. I'm taking a trip out to Colorado in 3.5 weeks from now. Very excited to use this app in all its glory." - "It gets a bit of time to get used to it because of its different approach but after that it's the best car dock app you can find. Better than Android Auto itself." - "It's the greatest application I've ever had, I never even have to pick up my phone now as I use my Bluetooth for calls and messages." - "App does exactly what's its supposed to. Makes driving distraction free. Makes having Spotify and navigation open at the same time a dream!"
