    Cool Jarvis - Text 'n Drive Robot

    Hey guys,
    Just wanted to let you guys know of an incredible, light-weight text messaging app for when you're driving.
    https://market.android.com/details?i...demarco.jarvis

    Seriously a must have, save a life and spread the word.

    Thanks

    I just watched the video and I was so impressed I installed the Jarvis - Text 'n Drive Robot and tested it.

    It downloaded and installed easily. When I started, I was prompted to download and install the Android Speech Synthesis. The description on the market of Jarvis - Text 'n Drive Robot states that is uses Speech Synthesis.

    My first test was just sitting at my desk just to see if the 'concept' actually worked.

    I started the Jarvis App. Using "Google Voice", I sent the following brief text message to my phone, "Test message send to Jarvis from Google Voice." The message was received and I could clearly hear and understand the message. I sent the following reply "Return message from Jarvis to Google Voice." This was sent and received on my Google Voice account where it was transcribed and the return message was able to be read or heard.

    My second test was emulating a 'real world' use of Jarvis, driving with Navigation on my Droid 3.

    I went out to my car and started Jarvis, then I started Navigation and set a route. I started the car and turned on the radio. (I have to have my tunes, sports, or Old-Time Radio Classics).

    Using my laptop, I used "Google Voice", to send the following brief text message to my phone, "Test send from Jarvis from Honda Element while navigating." The message was received and I could clearly hear and understand the message. I sent the following reply "Return message from Jarvis to [my name] while driving." This was sent and received on my Google Voice account where it was transcribed and the return message was able to be read or heard.

    The two changes I would make to the program are:

    1. When started, Jarvis control the volume rocker switch control the media volume rather than the ringer volume. Once the message begins to play, volume rocker switch controls the media volume. I would like to set it when the app starts.
    2. That I can be the initiator of text messages with Jarvis, rather than just receiver/responder.

    This is a great app and helps to promote safety when driving. I also installed it on my wife's Droid 3 after completing the test. It is especially valuable in states where "hands-free" is the law!

    It worked so well, I am considering using it all the time, I like it better than 'keying' text message replies.

    Great Job!

    Bob

    First of all, thanks for the complete review, it's nice to follow step by step with you and make sure it worked as intended.
    1. I have actually updated the way the audio is played since this post, as a majority of people requested the speech volume be automatically set to whatever the ringer volume is at, for cases where one might forget to disable Jarvis before a meeting/school .
    2. I will be implementing this very soon, let me just say the Jarvis head will no longer be there just for looks, I will be using that as a button to initiate commands.

    Today, I actually had a chance to use Jarvis. On my Droid 3, I added Jarvis to the Car Dock so it is easily accessible when my Droid 3 is in the car dock.

    I was driving from my home to Baltimore, MD, a trip of about 150 miles. My real estate broker sent me a text message asking if a fellow agent could show the house in a few minutes. Jarvis read the message, and I sent a reply saying go ahead and show it and please sell it! She received my reply.

    Had I not had Jarvis, I may have missed the opportunity for my house to be shown to prospective buyers today.

    I so far think this is a great app, but would like to see an option to auto activate when the phone is placed in a car dock.

    Installed it on my original Droid, but nothing is happening. I am currently using Handcent SMS - could that be why? I turned on the notification for the stock messaging app to see if that would make a difference. Both applications did the notification, but nothing from Jarvis. I am running Gingerbread 2.3.5 (SS 5.5) if that makes a difference. Hope that I can get some advice -- this sounds like it could be a really great app!

    Edit: Ok, found that in Handcent settings, I needed to change the entry for "Default Messaging application" from "Disable" to "All(SMS & MMS)". I am guessing that this is like the information for the GoSMS application in the description. However, the voice app keeps force closing on me. But, that isn't the fault of the Jarvis application.

    Absolutely fantastic. This is hands-down one of the best apps for Android, period. It is now a must have app for me and every other Android user I know.

    Like REMilk, I sent myself a message using the Google Voice app. Jarvis immediately began to play back the message in half-robotic voice, then offered me the option to reply or ignore. I opted to reply, and my message was taken and transcribed fairly well (it mistook "I found" for 'iphone'). Yes, the ability to initiate a text message would be great, but at the moment it fulfills its purpose within the intended context quite well. The fact that you don't have to take your hands off of the wheel to receive and reply to a message makes this app worth 10 times the asking price.

    Hats off to the author, you sir/ma'am are great.

    This alone justified the time spent creating this app, good luck with the sale of your house!

    It’s on the way! Thanks for the suggestion.

    Great, I will add this to the description for other Handcent users, I appreciate your tenacity.

    Does the voice search app force close when used in applications outside of Jarvis?

    Spread the word and lets make the roads 10 times safer! Thanks for the kind remarks. (Sir, by the way )
