Samsung unveils driving-friendly Drive Link app

Samsung unveil Drive Link, your friendly driving companion application

| Apps News | Posted: Aug 28, 2012 10:26 am

Samsung have just unveiled the Drive Link app for their devices, with the premise behind the app that it is to provide a safe user interface and portal to the commonly used applications on your phone, whilst driving. Drive Link will make navigation, hands-free calling and music playback easier than ever.

Drive Link's navigation feature will make use of your phone's GPS and mapping features, where you'll be able to speak destinations into the app, or drag them out of messages. Hands-free calling and text-to-speech message reading are available in more than one language, too. If music is what you're interested in, the Music portal gives you access to all of the media that is stored on your smartphone.

 

Samsung also notes that a Drive Link-powered device can provide services directly, even featuring the ability to connect to your car's current infotainment system with the MirrorLink protocol. Drive Link debuts on the international version of Samsung's Galaxy S III, and will arrive on other Android 4.0-powered devices in the near future.
