After a lot of time i somehow made it, Facebook messenger is working to read out to loud and reply using voice command without touch your phone, i need this be tested so is on beta in Play store all that are in Beta please let me know any issue , i improved reading SMS and you can change the text without touch the screen using "change" word ;) i spent several nights and is a nightmare lol, but i guess i will leave this atm and see how it works, hangout, whatsapp and telegram seems is working but only "read out to loud" reply is not working due security reasons and well they dont want us this :( well you can enable this feature in settings :)
And i really read all the suggestions but im the only one who codes in my free time , and well i will continue the improvements of this!! feel free to send me a virtual beer hahahaha oh well, im not sure what will be the next stage, check the improvements but i guess i will see what can i do with widgets .
Thanks to all that support the app and all that spent some time writing the bugs or new features!

Dear Zen, great CDD app, thanks for the effort, I bought the premium.

One request: could you please make your app be fully selectable as standard launcher, no matter if it is running or not?

Current setting causes issues to Tasker plugins - Secure Settings cannot set it as default home launcher.

Thanks a lot!

Any chance to have an option for more contrast in the daytime screen? I notice that the fonts are grey (option for black) & the tiles are off-white (option for pure white). While it's pleasing to the eye, with direct sun in my car it's hard to see. More contrast will make it easier to see. Thanks!

Dear Zen,
I really really like your CDD app. The user interface is almost perfekt, and I really love that fact that it has a very useful dialer included.

I'm using it on a Newsmy NR5261 Headunit (8" screen with 1024x600).

I have a few things and suggestions which I really hope may be implemented/fixed in future releases :-)

1) Would it be possible to use custom icons on apps? If you look at the attached pictures (zoom in), all icons are looks as if they are of very bad quality - I guess due to the larger screen, however the native "built-in" icons looks fine.

2) Maybe allowing 5-6 apps on each line could make the icons look better? Could this be an option?

3) In the dialer it would be great to have a thin line around each number. This would increase the easiness of which a phone number is entered while driving.

4) On mainscreen. Could you make a click on weather icon open a 2-3 day weather forecast for the specific area that is mentioned?

5) On mainscreen. Allow us to remove the "speed" box and maybe allow apps instead.

Thank you very much in advance and for listening to your users.
No matter what I still love the app, but the very low quality of the icons is a bit sad when everything else is so nice :-)

Sincerely,
Lars #drkoch

I find Car Dashdroid very useful, but I'm having difficulty making the read-out SMS/text function work. The auto-reply text is working great but I would like to hear the incoming text and not have to dismiss a dialog box. Does it rely on some other option elsewhere in the phone?
I'm using a Samsung Note 3 with Parrot MKI9100 in the car. For example should "hands free mode" be enabled at same time as Dashdroid (normally it is not in my case), or do I need to enable "Voice control" in Android settings (normally off for me)? Of course I have experimented with these before posting, and also I tried without connection to the car! Thanks.

Update: SMS TTS is now working as expected and I'm not exactly sure why because I changed a few things. It could be connected with un-installation of A2DP volume app (https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdfilter=a2dp&fdid=a2dp.Vol) which also has TTS function. Shame because I find that app useful.
It is working fine with hands free mode switched off, and I also have Android voice control off.

Please excuse what may seem like stupid questions, but I'm having no success in getting 'Car Dashdroid' to work for me!

1. I assume I just install the app on my mobile phone yes / no?
2. Mobile is running Android V5.1 Lollipop and is a MotoG 4G 1st GEN
3. Trying to link it with my Pumpkin Head Unit in car which is running Android V4.4.4 KitKat, but nothing appears on screen?!!??
4. Bluetooth is enabled on both and is working fine. Can use the mobile for making calls and play music through the Pumpkin.

I just don't get the 'Car Dashdroid' screen on the mobile mirrored on my Pumpkin unit!

Can anyone take list step by step instructions on how I need to set things up, please?

Or is it just a simple case of the Pumpkin unit's version of Android not being supported? Have looked at the 'Read More' section on Google Play for 'Car Dashdroid' but can't find anything stating which versions of Android are supported.

Thanks
Graham

P.S. Just suddenly had a thought, am I expecting this app to 'mirror' to another device, when it's not designed for that at all? ;-). It provides a simple interface (home screen) for use on your mobile and that's it?

It used to work just fine before you released the WhatsApp Facebook
integration Etc..
Any chance you have a link to the previous version?
I don't need those added apps anyway. Just working the way it was would be
great.

P.S. I donated! Thanks for your awesome work and app

Hello, everyone!

1. Report: when using "keep screen on" setting (to avoid screen off in other apps while Car Dashdroid is running) the capacitive buttons of my S5 mini stay lit all the time, probably it happens with other models as well...

2. Suggestion: when using buit-in maps and clicking on the icon to center the screen on my position (blue circle with a blue dot) don't change the zoom, only center the map. Please!

Stock ROM - Android 5.1.1

Regards!

Any chance you can integrate a Tasker "Action Plugin" for day/night mode on your next release? I'd like to be able to use Tasker (via Twighlight plugin) to have more options for when Dashdroid changes modes.
** βETA version, please report any problems and bugs **THIS IS A CONDITION...

Uso la app en una tablet de 10' y los iconos aparecen con baja calidad, supongo porque la app está diseñada solo para pantallas pequeñas.

se supone que deberían ser de alta resolucion, si te refieres a los iconos de otras apps, voy a checar si pueden mejorarse (lo agrego en mi bug list) mientras puedes usar icon packs y deberian verse bien
