Once Text’nDrive Pro grabs a new email from your inbox, it reads the first 450 words of the message to you. You’re then prompted to either say “Reply to the message” or tap once on the screen to set up a reply recording. To end the recording, you either tap on the screen again, or you can just stop talking. You’re then prompted to send the message. If you say “Send it now” or tap on the screen, the message is sent.
If you don’t want to reply to your emails but would like to listen to them, there’s a free version of the app called Text’nDrive Lite.
