Good so far 5/5
By Lisa Dauzat
Saw others having hard braking issues so far I haven't , but haven't been long distances yet either so still testing it out.
Battery sucker 2/5
Because of the location feature, this app drains my phone battery, takes up most of my phone memory storage, and interferes with data usage for all of my phone's other apps. I also don't like that the location is always on. If this app could detect location only while using the app, or while my phone is synced to my vehicle, that would be great. Allstate doesn't need to know where I sleep or when... The trip records are also not always accurate and the hard braking is completely inaccurate. There was a time when I had a near collision with another vehicle because they stopped at the end of a freeway on-ramp instead of getting up to speed and merging properly, and there was no record of any hard or extreme braking. Yet, that same day, I slowly came to a stop at a traffic light and got dinged for hard braking. The discount for using this app is nice, and I like that it helps me be accountable for safe driving, but the data issues and the inaccuracy of the mapping makes me want to uninstall it.
I love the app. It seems reasonable.
Great app 5/5

Hard braking and auto start 3/5
By Josh Roozlin
The app works ok and gives you all your info in a pretty simple set up. What I don't like is the way it auto starts. There's been times where I'm riding with other people and forget to put it in standby and then later forget to take it out of standby. I miss the plug in device that only monitors your vehicle when it is on. Also the hard braking gave me issues. There were about 3 times or so that I got a hard braking warning when I know I wasn't and on a few of em I looked at my map and it showed a zig zag path where I hard brakes like I stopped, put my car in reverse, then drove back forward. I had an extreme braking also which I have no idea when that could have happened because I was extremely careful when I started using this. Oh well I guess.
Great app and rewards but.. 4/5
As title says. Breaking is too sensitive as many have mentioned. Otherwise the app is good and provides a good way to earn rewards and discounts
My thoughts... 5/5
This is a really cool and informative app. I would however, adjust the braking hard feature. It is pretty inaccurate and seems too sensitive.
Otherwise, it's fun to keep track of trips, routes taken and times.
Nice app so far.only had it a couple of weeks but I like to check it out.
By Raymond Wetzel
I love the app but the hard breaking is very sensitive you charged me with hard breaking at the end of my driveway, because I had to stop for another vehicle that was coming down the road. You should change that.
Very good app - instructive. 5/5
Learn with feedback from your own driving.
I have so much fun earning the points!
It's ok 3/5
Hard breaking definitely needs work! Especially when having to stop at traffic lights. Normal breaking as usual but sometimes you decelerate a little more than normal...sorry, not going through the light to appease an app.
Pretty good 4/5
I really like the app, but like most people, I agree the hard breaking is too sensitive. The only time I 'hard brake' is when other cars stop suddenly in front of me.
Muy buena app
Hard break & speed 5/5
Something needs to be done. Jersey snow wasn't the best I have hard breaking. One over 80 mph. Can I get a real break for both. It is just so hard when you have drivers infront using the cell phones. I love the app.
Makes NO Sense! 1/5
My daily trips show 0 hard braking and 0 extreme braking, every single one of them 0 and 0! My monthly report shows 5 hard braking and 1 extreme braking??? What?? 0 + 0 = 0 Allstate! What is up with this??
Hard Breaking 4/5
I agree that this app is pretty great, though there is room for improvement in the hard breaking data collection. There are times where I've had to slow down because of other drivers or because I was coming to a stop light that just turned red, but it was never really what I would call "hard breaking". It's too sensitive in my opinion. Other than that, it's fun because you get rewarded by doing what you normally do.
Hard braking 4/5
One more review to add to the pile of reviews calling out the hard braking sensitivity for being a bit too high. I turned on the audible alerts for both hard braking and speeds above 80mph. Of the five times I've been called out for hard braking since I started using the app, every single one has elicited a "come on REALLY?" It's unfortunate that the accelerometer the app depends on to sense "hard braking" cannot account for context.
Amazing points rewards 5/5
By Do Francis
Looove this app!!!
Love it 5/5
Easy. Good rewards!
Great App 5/5
Great App! 5/5
I love drivewise. It's fun to track my hard breaking and speeding and see where I can improve. I like how I can delete my trips if I'm not driving.
Money Back 5/5
Will receive $ back every 6 months no matter how bad you drive
Easy Peasy 4/5
Easy to use and helps keep me aware of my driving habits.
Pretty cool 4/5
By Juice Moma
I only took one off because when you drive through certain areas (residential) you may have to break hard for children or objects
It works 4/5
Its like vzw rewards. Sweepstakes and discounts really.
Love this app! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! Keeps me in touch w/ my insurance company.
Pls fix bugs 3/5
As an Allstate agent I think it's a good app idea and offers a good discount but you guys seriously need to fix the bugs. So many times it either doesn't record trips or it completely logs you out and then you lose trips again that way. It happens not only to me but also to my husband and to other Allstate customers.
Adjust the breaks 5/5
By Denver Cat
Great for the most part, but the hard breaking could use an adjustment given that I have had close calls because of other drivers and had to brake to avoid a collision showing my safe driving, but penalized in doing so. Maybe adjust to an average of hard braking throughout the trip rather than one chance only. Also driving a five speed, I save on my breaks by going to neutral yet my speed dropped so I got dinged for hard braking.
Great App 5/5
Other than the " Hard Breaking " it does a good job! Just too sensitive when do you have to break.
Pretty good 4/5
Good way to become more aware of your driving habits and take a little off your premium. I have to agree with the other comments that what is considered "hard braking " is ridiculously over-sensitive. If I lived in an urban area, that issue would likely have been a much bigger problem
Keeps you in check 5/5
Trying hard to get those savings...
Works well 5/5
The data collected is pretty accurate. Not too many complaints
Hard braking 5/5
It's a good thing to have, the "Drive wise". It makes you realize things when you don't realize it yourself. I agree with the other reviews about the hard braking being sensitive. Sometimes you have to hit your brake if someone pulls out in front of you to avoid hitting them.
Safety awareness does not have to be dull 5/5
This is a good app to evaluate your driving habits.
Love it 5/5
I really love this app. The money it saves me as a single mom is so helpful to me and my children.
Frustrating data collection 1/5
By Michael E in delaware
The app works well, I have one glaring frustration. The data collected when I designate myself as a passenger is used in my driving results. Despite deleting the trip my results are affected by uber drivers and airport vans. Very dissatisfied.
I love this app!
Hard braking 5/5
A good app to keep your driving good habits in check. However Hard Braking should not be viewed as a negative since sometimes you have to brake hard so you don't run a red light or avoid a stupid driver. In addition to taking into consideration of where you live and the traffic in your area should be considered.
Great App 5/5
Great app!!!! 5/5
It works great. Love getting the discount as well.
Great app 4/5
Very satisfied! I just think the hard breaking is a bit too sensitive.
Pretty good app 5/5
This app is pretty good, just takes a little getting used to. But it does help improve your driving.
Good Concept but Needs LOTS of WORK 1/5
Good concept but only captures half of trips even if you are going above the 20mph speed necessary to start the tracking and for an extended period of time.
My advice would be to go back to the device that plugs directly into the vehicle.
Good App 4/5
Love the rewards. Wish it wasn't so sensitive on the hard braking. I have a hybrid. braking recharges the hybrid battery via kinetic energy
Let Me Test It ! 1/5
By Upendra Dahal
Want to test before giving five stars!
This app makes driving awareness fun! 5/5
By Bonnie from Colorado
Great way to increase your driving awareness (hard braking or speeds > 80 mph). Rewards and sweepstakes make it fun, too! All in all, it's a great use of technology!
Battery hog, ridiculous that doesn't have Only While Using for 1/5
Location services in the Drive wise app should have option for being on only While Using the App. Right now it is either Never or Always. This means you need to switch to Never between trips and even then there is significant battery drain. This design decision was poorly thought out for its impact on users. Please fix asap in new release. I'm uninstalling for now. Have sent email via Contact form but no response.
