<Insert apologetic comment about not writing for a long time here>
I’d like to announce the first android app produced and developed by CodeNoise. It’s called TextDrive. If you find yourself in situations where responding to SMS text messages is difficult or even impossible, this is the app for you. After you install it, you can select one of the built-in responses. Additionally in the full version, you can add your own response. Once you’ve done that, any time someone sends you an SMS message, TextDrive will automatically reply to them with the response. The app will also show a list of the messages that you have received so you can quickly glance at them and see if any are urgent. With a quick tap TextDrive will even read the message to you. This comes in handy if you happen to be driving and don’t want to take your eyes off the road. If you get a lot of texts, or want to unclutter the list, just long-tap any message and it will be removed from the list. Don’t worry, the message is still in your normal Message inbox.
ANother great feature available in the full-version is an auto-off timer. That way you can turn TextDrive on at the start of your commute, then have it automatically turn off after a specified amount of time. If the timer is enabled, you can even choose to include the time until your available in your auto-reply.
By the way, changes are coming to codenoise.com. Stay tuned!
