InDrive is now on sale. We are lowering the price of the InDrive Unlocker to just $0.99. Moreover, 20 randomly selected people who place an order over the next few weeks will receive the Pro version of SpeedView as a gift. Winners will be notified by email, and their names will be posted here.
This update includes a new speedometer layout that we call Hybrid. It’s an updated version of the initial speedo layout that features an analog-like dial with big speed numbers in the center. We are keeping the Legacy layout in case you would still want to use it.
Note: To clarify the situation with the Free version, we would like to stress that it’s not “canceled”, as some reviews seem to say. It’s fully functional, and you can use it for as long as you like. However, we decided to focus on the Pro version in the future. Here are the advantages that the paid version has over SpeedView Free:
The absence of ads
Street address bar with some additional info
Premium support – you will get an answer within a day
Note: If you are experiencing the issue with the app randomly closing without any errors, try disabling integration with Poweramp in the app settings. This is a confirmed problem in Poweramp that unfortunately affects InDrive when integration is enabled. It should be fixed in the next Poweramp update.
Note for Android 4.2.x users: Unfortunately, it appears that Google has removed dock home support in Android 4.2. Pressing the Home button will now return you to the launcher screen instead of InDrive or other car home app of choice. If you would like this feature back, please vote for this issue.
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Android application that may appeal to everyone who uses their phone while driving.
InDrive is a unique application that combines superior car home functionality with an advanced trip computer and deep Poweramp integration. The app makes it very easy to launch your favorite applications, directly dial numbers, view your trip information and control music playback*. It will auto launch when placed in a compatible car dock. If you don’t have a physical car dock, InDrive provides an option to force the phone into car mode, in which it will override the Home button.
* The music screen is designed to work in conjunction with Poweramp. Without Poweramp installed, you will only be able to do very basic controls such as switching to the next song in the default Android music player. Support for other media players is not guaranteed.
Please download the app from Google Play and tell us what you think. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Trackback function will guide you along a previously recorded track with compass pointing to a nearest point. A new track can be recorded at the same time. Tap on the track info tip to start/stop trackback, change direction or set a nearest point.
Turn on Trackback and timer to watch your previous position correlated with the current time on track (multiple green circles). This way you can challenge yourself when going the same track as before.
The site can work a bit slowly when it aggregates a page for the first time due to it accessing quite a few APIs. To address this problem, we have cached 1000 most popular artists according to Last.fm and all of their albums.
If you like the site, you can help a lot by spreading the word about it through Facebook, Twitter or your own blog. We also appreciate any thoughts and opinions you may have, so feel free to post them on the site’s Feedback page. Thanks!
This is a major update that improves almost every aspect of the application, from the functionality to the design. It has been in development for quite a while, and we are very excited to finally be able to release it. Please see the detailed list of changes below.
What’s new in 3.0:
Updated interface design
Support for extra high-density screens
New customizable speedo graphics
User-selectable indicator views
Smooth compass and speedo animation
Automatic GPX export option
New algorithm for GPS filtering
Service now runs in the foreground
Auto switch to GPS heading option
Better organized settings screen
Support for 1280×720 resolution
Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) compatibility
Many other tweaks under the hood
Note: This version (3.0.x) is pretty much a beta release. There are lots of things to improve and this list is growing as we listen to what you guys are saying in the comments section and in your emails. However, there is one frequent concern about this version that we want to address. We are NOT going to trash the previous default speedo layout. It will exist as a third option in its unchanged form for some time, and then will be replaced by a slightly revised skin to match the new look of the app. Stay tuned, and thanks for your feedback.
Droid NAS allows you to share folders over Wi-Fi network, making your Android device visible as Bonjour computer in Finder on your Mac. Turn your phone or tablet into wireless flash drive with a single tap!

Mac OS X.
Android: apps like ES File Explorer, Solid Explorer, GTVBox Video Player.
Windows is NOT supported because it can’t connect to SMB servers via a non-standard port.
Update: to reactivate the new drag’n'drop confirmation dialog in this beta version, set parameter ConfirmDrag to 1 in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Code Sector\TeraCopy with Registry Editor.
A rather useful tip from Andy Malcolm, you might want to test it, even if you have another AV:
Just a quick note to recommend that you suggest to your customers that they list teracopy.exe as an exclusion in Avira Antivirus on-access scanner. The reason being that I noticed full CPU usage when using your product with Avira and it was the Avira process wasting cycles, when I excluded your program from avira on access, your program, which had been somewhat unstable, started copying files 8 to 10 times faster than it had been before, my CPU usage dropped off to a more reasonable level and it seems to have resolved stability issues.
Version 2.27 was updated the server with a new installer – now you can easily install a portable version as well. Just point the installer to your flash drive and select ‘Portable version’. Start menu shortcuts will not be installed and no changes to registry will be made. This also means no drag-and-drop integration.
• Added: ‘Remove other’ to remove non-selected files from the list [Pro].
• Added: Better handling multiple copy processes.
• Added: Multiple retries to delete source files and folders after moving.
• Added: Tray notification when adding files to the existing process.
• Fixed: Problem with some non-Latin filenames.
• Fixed: Copied files now have a correct creation time.
• Added: WaitBeforeMinimize option to ini file.
Note: Due to certain technical reasons all versions of SpeedView higher than 2.6 will not work with Android 1.5 (Cupcake). You of course will be able to use your current version, but you will not receive further updates. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Note: We are aware of issues with the Motorola Xoom and working on tablet support at the moment. Also, several highly requested features, such as an ability to quickly switch speed limits and disable/enable screen auto-rotation, will be added in the next version.
SpeedView was reviewed by Kate Russell on BBC Click’s Webscape.
We are also pleased to announce that the free version of SpeedView now has over 1,000,000 downloads, and SpeedView Pro holds the first place among the paid apps in the Transportation category (Maverick being close behind). We would like to thank everybody for their continued support and valuable feedback, and most of all for the cool ideas and suggestions that you guys email us or post on the Market. This is a really awesome experience.
Also, we would like to confirm that the new version of SpeedView is currently in the works and will be released shortly. We apologize for the rather long delay between the updates.
