Motospeak on a Galaxy S4?

2014-01-06, 18:15 PM


How can I override the S Voice preloaded app on an S4 so I can use Motospeak?

What RayChicago said is true, you have to disable S-Voice.  BUT, know that My Motospeak (MMS) is no longer supported by Motorola (it is now a "Sunset" app).  There are a number of us for which MMS no longer works (after an Android? update in mid December 2013).  What I'm saying is, don't be surprised if your MMS app doesn't work, even AFTER disabling S-Voice.



There are a couple of threads on this forum that I and others have been watching... 1) in the HOPE that Motorola will reconsider and resume/continue the MMS app, or 2) we can find an alternative app.



I too hope that Motorola fixes/updates the MMS app (at least) one last time.  AND MAYBE, since they sold soooo many BT devices with MMS as a major selling point/benefit, and the number of "us" that use it and are now without, MAYBE they'll reconsider it being a "Sunset" app and reconsider supporting it???  <big sigh>



JUST IN CASE, here's a list of alternative apps that I've put together:



Assistant (SPEAKTOIT)



SKYVI



JEANNIE



ROBIN (the SIRI challenger)



AIVC



Talking SMS & Caller



SIRI for Android (ANDY)



Speak Drive Text



Jarvis Texting Robot



Indigo



Text By Voice



HFT (Hands Free Texting)  <is $.99>



TEXT'N DRIVE



Handsfree



Choice Dialer Plus



Eva Intern



Sonalight Text



Dragon Mobile Assistant



I've not tried them all... nor am I going to make a recommendation as everyone has their own specific needs/uses.  For example, with MY phone (Galaxy S3) and Motorola HX550 Bluetooth, Dragon doesn't see to want to end the application after making a call.  That requires me to physically get out the phone and manually close the app/screen in order to make the next call. 



That kind of defeats the "hands-free" aspect for me.  But 1) that might not be important to others, and/or 2) maybe it doesn't do that with OTHER phone BT combinations.



I'm going to post this list on the "other" link too... and hopefully, we can all add other handsfree app options to one thread or the other - or both.

YEA!!!!!  The My Motospeak app is working again!!  (Galaxy S3/HX550)



I was JUST ABOUT to pull the trigger on a BlueAnt Q3 to get the MMS app functionality.  Saved me $75!



NOW, if Motorola would just EXPAND the MMS app to include their newer models (Whisper, Boom, Sliver 2, etc.) - because I'm due - I'd be a Motorola customer for a L-O-N-G time!
