Hi!Way is a sophisticated, user-aware, handsfree SMS & email app for Android. It is the only handsfree app that can automatically detect when you want your text messages and emails read to you or when to deliver them as normal.

We made the user experience as intuitive and flexible as possible, so Hi!Way can deliver messages via your wired headphones, or your media-supported Bluetooth device, or even via your Android’s speakerphone. You can choose to verify your transcribed voice reply before Hi!Way sends it, and to make sure you never loose track of the conversation, your replies are posted back into the native messaging application.

These user-centric features make Hi!Way the smartest Handsfree app on the market today.

Transcript

  • 1. …then reply by voice. 100% handsfree.
    Listen to your incoming texts and emails…
    A brief guide to setting up and using Hi!Way
  • 2. Before we start, an important note about audio output and Hi!Way…
    Make sure you have your media volume turned up!
    You can listen to your messages via:
    Headphones (we recommend earbud headphones with inline mic)
    Bluetooth® devices (they must support audio media profile)
    Your Android’s speakerphone
  • 3. Step 1: set up your email
    Go to Settings and add your credentials to enable your email account. Add as many email accounts as you want.
    Note: unfortunately we do not support Outlook Exchange – yet!
  • 4. Don’t want your emails read out?
    Go to Settings and check: ‘Play SMS Only’
  • 5. Step 2: power cycle for best results
    After setting your preferences we strongly recommend you:
    Power off your phone
    Power it back on
    Hi!Way is ready to go!
  • 6. Step 3: after power cycling, select the mode you prefer
    Tap the ‘Mode’ button on the Home screen to select:
    or
    Hi!Way works the same in both modes…
    …EXCEPT for launch and quit, which are quite different.
  • 7. Launch in Manual mode
    Same as all apps, tap the launcher icon on the phone’s Home screen.
    Hi!Way will read out all messages (whether you are driving or not).
    Hi!Way
  • 8. Quit in Manual mode
    Tap the Quit button on Hi!Way’s Home screen.
  • 9. Launch in Auto mode
    Auto mode is Hi!Way’s default Setting.
    Hi!Way will launch automatically when you start driving. You don’t need to tap a thing!
    Motion is detected using GPS.
  • 10. Quit in Auto mode
    Hi!Way does NOT completely quit* in Auto mode.
    Instead, it just exits to ‘sleep’ in the background.
    You can tell it’s ‘sleeping’ by the icon turning to black & white in the notification bar.
    *Switch to Manual mode if you want to control when Hi!Way fully quits.
  • 11. How does it know when to Exit?
    Hi!Way will stop reading out your messages when it detects you are stationary for longer than 5/10/15mins (see Settings).
    Alternatively, you can tap the Exit button on Hi!Way’s Home screen.
  • 12. How does it know when to Launch again?
    Hi!Way will automatically ‘wake up’ and re-launch the next time it detects you are driving.
    You don’t need to tap a thing!
  • 13. Step 4: Now that you’ve selected Auto or Manual mode…
    Do nothing!
    Hi!Way is running, which means you don’t have to do a thing…
    …except wait for an SMS or email to come in.
  • 14. What happens when a message comes in?
    Hi!Way prompts you with commands via audio AND on screen.
    In response, you can either: SAY what you want to do
    – OR –
    TAP the corresponding buttons.
    For example, say or or tap
    Ignore
    Listen
  • 15. Ignore
    If you say/tap:
    The message is NOT read out.
    However, messages can always be viewed in the SMS or email message thread, as per normal.
  • 16. Listen
    If you say/tap:
    The message is read out.
    After the message is read out, you are prompted with four options:
    Reply
    Call back
    Listen again
    Ignore message
  • 17. Again
    If you say/tap:
    The message is read out again.
  • 18. Call
    If you say/tap:
    The person that sent the SMS is automatically dialed.
    Note: call back only works in response to an SMS, not an email.
  • 19. Reply
    If you say/tap:
    You will hear a 3-2-1 countdown set of beeps…
    Then, after the 4th longer beep…
    You start saying your reply.
  • 20. When you are replying..
    Speak normally, and slightly louder if you’re in noisy surroundings.
    Note: the recording duration lasts up to 30 seconds (which is a lot longer than you think!)
  • 21. Then what?
    When Hi!Way detects a 3 second silence*, it assumes you have finished your reply.
    It immediately begins transcribing what you said into an SMS or email.
    *It doesn’t wait for the full 30 seconds – that would be really annoying!
  • 22. You can listen to the transcription before you send it
    ‘Verify Email/SMS reply’ is a default Setting.
    Hi!Way will immediately read back the transcription so you can decide if you are happy with it.
    After listening, you are prompted with four options:
    Repeat message
    Send
    New reply
    Cancel sending
    Your reply is:
    Sorry, I’m running late.
    I’ll meet you at the bar probably at8 o’clock.
  • 23. Repeat
    If you say/tap:
    Hi!Way reads out the reply again.
  • 24. New
    If you say/tap:
    The 3-2-1 countdown will begin and you can record your reply again.
    (You can do this as many times as you wish).
  • 25. Cancel
    If you say/tap:
    Hi!Way doesn’t send the reply.
    Note: your transcribed reply is deleted from the phone.
    Your reply is:
    Now running really late.
    I’ll meet you at the bar probably around 9 o’clock.
  • 26. Send
    If you say/tap:
    The reply is immediately sent.
    Your reply is:
    Sorry, I’m running late.
    I’ll meet you at the bar probably around 8 o’clock.
  • 27. Message sent!
    Hi!Way will confirm that your SMS or email has been sent.
    If there are more messages waiting for you, Hi!Way will automatically read out each one in the order that they came in.
  • 28. If you find the ‘Verify reply?’ feature annoying, you can disable it
    Go to Settings and check: ‘No, don’t check reply’
    This feature can be set independently for SMS and email.
  • 29. And finally… two top tips for conserving battery while using Hi!Way
    INCREASE the number in the ‘Email check interval’ Setting so Hi!Way checks less frequently for incoming emails.
    Alternatively, plug your phone into the car charger while you’re driving.
