During the BlackBerry Developer Conference I had a chance to sit down and chat with the creators of DriveSafe.ly and talk about their application and what they had in-store, and I’m glad to say that the additions to the application like voice control are now available. The Application is free in BlackBerry App World but the Paid version is defiantly worth the download. The paid version will bring some premium features like automatic voice selection (i.e auto selects a male for female voice) but just give the free version ago and see if you want to upgrade, the link to app world is right here for you. Check out the full press release after the break.

Studies all over the world have shown that using your cell phone while driving is quite dangerous. Even looking at your caller ID can cause you to get into an accident. The team over at iSpeech have been providing a way for your BlackBerry to read out your text messages and emails while your driving your car through the phones speaker or your Bluetooth, and now they have announced the next step to a truly hands-free BlackBerry experience. Today BlackBerry users will be able to have their called ID spoken to them through their Bluetooth or the BlackBerry speaker with the new Caller ID Reader app from iSpeech. The application is available in BlackBerry App World or from their web site www.CallerIDReader.com. I personally have been using DriveSafe.ly application for some time now and find that the app works as indicated and has one of the best TTS (text to speech) quality and is almost guaranteed to be the best super app in BlackBerry App World, and i cant wait to try out Caller ID. So give the app a test drive (pun intended). iSpeech has given us five copies of their new application to give our readers, all you have to do it leave a comment and your entered also Check out the full press release after the break.
