First, I bought the new Droid Commander One bluetooth headset w/ my new NEXUS: it's a great headset! BUT, "My Motospeak", the app needed to use all it's functions, is not ICS compatible! Very frustrated for 2 days trying to find an app that would read my texts while I'm driving, I put out a desperate cry for help and received a successful app recommendation from another member; its called: ENHANCED SMS & CALLER ID...AND IT WORKS! ... BUT, then I came into an odd issue where the audio in my headset, only for the SMS reading, was wicked low...which made no sense considering when I received a call I could hear the reported name of the caller loud and clear...volume control fluctuated oddly from one task to another ...I found this odd; but I've learned to not be too surprised by 'odd' things with new OS...it's all about 'trial & error' a lot of times, right? lol ... so with this remaining issue, in addition to one other that I was determined to find an app to fix: poor signal service in areas other phones have always had fantastic service, I wanted to share with you two VERY SUCCESSFUL APPS that I've found:
Volume control solution: all things from bluetooth headset volume to ringtone volume to media playing: AUDIO MANAGER PRO by Smart Android Apps LLC: cost a few dollars BUT SOOOOOO- WORTH IT!
Poor Signal solution: as I mentioned, my signal reception has been significantly less comparatively to my husbands Droid X & the Razr (when I had that be4 the NEXUS...for all of 2 weeks...loved the phone but couldn't resist the nexus once it was released...still not sure if I regret the change...hoping I won't in time:/) ... the app that works great AND is ICS compatible as well, is: FRESH NETWORK PRO by McStealth.
Now if only I can get the battery to live longer on a single charge, I will be a VERY VERY happy camper! This shall be my final mission to perfecting my NEXUS...although it may end in get the 'extended battery'...we shall see!
Hope this helps others out there!
