Just wondering here.. how many of you are actually going to use, or using, the text and email functionality?

I don't have the email functionality on my Android but with the text, I have found it works much faster and easier to just grab my phone, click on the text and read it instead of doing it through office. I thought the whole office turned out quite disappointing and more time consuming to use than just using my phone. As for safety issues, I don't think it's all that safe to do it through the idrive either lol.

lol it does read them but you're not going to like it.. it's like a computerized voice, as if you're listening to Stephen Hawking's wife lol and it will name everything like exclamation mark, colon, double colon, parenthesis, etc etc.

Note: Many PM me for links to the software needed to code. Please note that I do not have download links to this software. Your best bet is using the search function in the coding thread
