iOperating mobile phones while driving is prohibited by law both in Sri Lanka and many other countries. Nearly 85 million smartphone users globally are faced with the difficulty of responding to calls that come in while t at the wheel. DriveMODE is an Android based offline mobile application to help pick up calls while driving. DriveMODE functions solely through voice commands: You simply have to say "Yes" or "No" to answer or reject any incoming call while in loudspeaker mode. Since DriveMODE also announces who is calling, the driver does not have to look at the phone screen. He can keep his eyes on the road, hands on the wheel, obeying the law and staying safe at all times.
