While at the BlackBerry App World 2.0 event in NYC I ran into iSpeech, creators of DriveSafe.ly, who gave me a preview of their upcoming Caller ID Reader App. The new app, available as of today, reads the caller’s name or phone number of all incoming calls out loud so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road while driving. Some of the benefits include:
- Stay Connected
Multi-task without having to look at your phone each time it rings
- Do it Your Way
Select when and which calls to answer without looking at your phone
- Keep it Safe
Stop looking at your phone to see who’s calling while busy or driving
Caller ID Reader™ is Bluetooth compatible
Caller ID Reader is available as a free and premium version. The free version reads a caller’s names or number out loud but prompts you with an upgrade message every third use. Caller ID Reader Pro removes the upgrade message for $3.95 semi‐annually or $9.95 one time. To download the app go to calleridreader.com or search for it in the BlackBerry App World. More info in the press release after the jump.
