Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 RokDock by Rokform [Review]


Monday 03rd of June 2013 / androidspin.com
Docking stations for our devices serve many purposes in life. Mainly they give you the chance to charge, transfer and prop up your device all in one neat little package. Most are inexpensive and made from plastic. Some offer the ability to connect to your TV for streaming content tot he big screen. Others are made for your vehicles for driving and being able to use your GPS and have easy access to voice controls and driving mode. While others, like the RockDock by RokForm, are made to look amazing and be fairly stationary on your desk.The RokDock is one heavy-duty accessory. Unlike the traditional plastic docks, this one is crafted out of just over 3 pounds of aircraft grade aluminum. The final product is a solid 3 pounds of weighted docking goodness.

Samsung Galaxy 3 - Driving Mode


Monday 02nd of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
My Driving Mode now announces the time of day in addition to a message or incoming call. This just happened and the only way to stop it seems to be to disable the driving mode. Is there anyway to get it back to announcing only messages and incoming calls? It was driving me crazy announcing the time of day everytime i my phone was accessed. Thanks Terry

"hands free" "driving mode" on Nexus 5 with Android 4.4 Kit Kat


Thursday 02nd of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I went through all the settings and could not find a way to configure the phone to speak the SMS, the caller id, etc....when I am driving.On my other phone, a samsung galaxy s3 from verizon with android 4.3, there is a "driving mode". I thought it was a true android capability, but could it be a samsung feature instead ?In any case how do I get the Nexus 5 with Android 4.4 to do the same ? And as a bonus question, can I get it to do it using an NFC tag... This is driving me crazy so please somebody answer me fast ! (I called Google and the least I can say is that their support people are absolutely clueless).
