Bluetooth activation is nice. However, please understand... I don't use my Bluetooth ONLY when I am driving. I use it in my office, in my home, etc. (you know.. when I CAN and WANT to look at my device if I so choose.) If you are saying that in order for the BT activation to operate properly, the app needs to run 24/7 in the background.. well add me to the list of those who deleted the app. I would say that I used DriveSafe.ly about 3 hours a week. To have the app using resources all day, every day in exchange for BT activation for 3 hours a week.. uh no thanks. Further, I should be able to decide IF I want to turn on the app when I connect my BT to my phone... the app shouldn't make that choice for me. ya?
I will re-install when you disable this component of the application.
Until then I will take a look at Vlingo which I am told is a similar app but also allows for voice to text transcription/send for emails/texts/opening apps/etc.
