Seems to be hogging battery in iOS 11 3/5
The app is consistently in the top three apps consuming battery resources. There should be better battery management. For instance, if I'm connected to wifi and not my car's Bluetooth, go into sleep mode.
Perhaps follow Apple's guidance on turning on driving mode. This would help if you're a passenger or if you happen to take public transit (like a bus). Of course, you can give people the option of using it all the time if they happen to drive rental cars a lot and want to track their movement.
Love it ! 5/5
Keeps me mindful of my driving and love the rewards.

Drive Wise 5/5
I know it's like big brother is watching me and sometimes I'm conscious of my driving activities and sometimes I just forget; however, I'm entertaining the experience and most of all I'm loving the rewards.
Reasonably accurate and "well-behaved" 3/5
First the good:
1. Low battery usage.
2. Can be setup to not use cellular data.
3. Gives at least 2% back on insurance cost.
4. Accurate on speed alerts almost all the time.
1. Does not accurately detect hard braking. About half of my events are real. The other half are VERY slow braking that it somehow thinks are hard. Placing the phone near a window helps, but does not eliminate the problem.
2. The high speed alert at 80 mph cannot be changed even though some roads are 80 mph and higher.
1. All the "bad" things mentioned above.
2. "Safe hours" cannot be avoided in most cases, greatly limiting rewards. I can't claim this as "bad" since it may be statistically demonstrated that the "safe" hours result in fewer claims, thus safer.
3. Can't determine the maximum possible reward given for no "bad" events, excluding times driven which often cannot be controlled.

Rewards are worth it 5/5
Received my first reward check last month & it was awesome. Insurance that practically pays for itself!
Uses so much data!!! 3/5
This app is helpful and has increased my awareness of my driving habits. It uses so much data though! I check it sometimes after my drive to work, and it uses anywhere from 8-30 MB of data for the 12 mile trip, although today it used 60!! Please fix this, because if it keeps using this much data it won't be worth keeping.
Takes for ever to sign on and... 2/5
... no option for staying logged in. Once in, which only happened successfully once, it ain't too shabby.
Good, but a little misleading 3/5
I like using the reward points which have been great. I have been using the app for 3 years and have only received one payout. It will give the date of next payout but the date will roll around then nothing. It just rolls over to next payout date. I am a very safe driver and would like to see some improvements.
Love it!!! 5/5
Would recommend for new drivers! Especially teens. Great way to encourage safe driving!

Drive wise app 4/5
I like the app, the chance to lower my premiums for doing what I would be doing every day! Nice bonus! However the hard braking seems a little over sensitive. Without that I would have given five stars. But definitely appreciate the opportunity to earn rewards!
Very good app! Keeps you conscious of your driving habits, however I'm not so sure the hard braking portion of the app is accurate.
Safe Driver 5/5
Although I don't know how this app can tell about my driving from my phone, I do like the fact that they can tell that I don't fly nor do I ride bumpers thereby slam on my brakes. I like the fact that my being careful is finally going to payoff. This is really easy to setup and use.

Love it! 5/5
It's a good way to keep up with your driving
Hasn't worked 1/5
Since I've downloaded this app, it hasn't worked. I've reached out twice and no response.
Nice to earn money while driving 4/5
Great way to earn money towards your bill!
Only issue I have is that it seems to assume "hard breaking" when there wasn't... happens at least 1-3 times a week... THAT IS ANNOYING! Even my son who is 18 said- there's no way that was hard breaking mom!!!
Not sure how to change that so often I just say I wasn't the driver to try and not let it get to my points.
Otherwise- good app
Love this app

Nace for me driving

Love the App! 5/5
By Queen Agape
It makes an individual accountable for their driving habits! Personally, I'm enjoying the concept of being rewarded for good driving skills.
I just think this is a wonderful app, I wished my daughter wasn't in Virginia and was here to where I could make sure not I needs an app to help me drive that much safer but she would also benefit.
She's 18 and already knows it all
Time slots for risk category not right 3/5
I am a first time user to this app and looked at my first trip that I took at 8am and back at 9am on a weekday, today, July 7, 2017.
I notice the 3.1 miles I drove recorded at a moderate risk that is defined as Weekdays 12pm, that's noon, to 11pm. By the app categories, this trip should have counted as a Low Risk. Weekdays 4am to 12pm. What am I missing?
I looked at my settings and there's no indication I'm supposed to set a time zone. It has my location and assume correct time zone. What's the deal?
Drivewise Review by a Pessimistic Account Holder 5/5
I was very concerned about using Drivewise, due to my lead foot. This was going to be basically seeing everything I do, when driving a vehicle. I didn't want my insurance company to know or they may drop me.
I've been using Drivewise for about 4 months now. I'm receiving points constantly, even though my driving is faster than others. If you go over 80 MPH, then the app will tell you this. Many times I don't realize how fast I'm going, so it's a good reminder, and with wanting my points to help pay my final bill, at the end of the policy, I know I need a lot of points, so this helps slow me down.
I'm not so pessimistic about using the Drivewise app any longer. It's not as bad as you would think; and I'm earning tons of points.
Works well 5/5
I drive safely anyway. It's nice to get a reward for it!
Nice trip map, but drains battery 3/5
Helps me recall trips taken. Hard braking a bit sensitive also hit 75 for awhile and it thinks you're going over 80. Also iPhone says this app is my battery hog.
Love it 5/5
Awesome app!! 5/5
The offers could probably be a little more useful, but the concept is dope! Can't wait to take advantage of the rewards I'm earning.
Not bad overall 4/5
The app has potential to save you money, however, there have been a few instances that it records hard breaking when it hasn't occurred. This alone is an annoyance when the point of the app is to accurately reflect your driving to save you money. Other than that, the app is easy to use with little issues that I have noticed.
Awesome rewards, buggy interface. 4/5
This app is great but not user friendly. Very slow response when navigating different links.
Good but could be better 3/5
When I'm in the United States this works really well, but when I'm out of the country and using fast public transportation this does not bode well for my Allstate percentage cash back. There needs to be a way to not have to delete the app altogether but be able to manage oversee is public transportation situation easier than deleting the app while you're out of the country and reloading it when you return. I understand that you can delete individual driving situations, but this becomes a real pain when you're out of the country and don't always have Wi-Fi/internet/data. I had 17% cashback until last summer when I was out of the country for a month, deleted the app, and then returned for now 11% for the last year. Kind of a bummer. :(
Cool app saves me money.
Excellent Service and Benefits 5/5
I love how this insurance awards customers for following all safety rules and regulations. Also, accident forgiveness is a good way to show a customers that you care in their time of needs.
Great way to earn and save
By Liz the 2nd
It is a great app. If there were instructions on how to get a better percentage back, it would be better. If there is I need to find it.
Good app 4/5

It keeps you safe. I'm sure there could always be improvement. But over all I like it

Drive safe and be rewarded. Awesome!
Drive Wise 5/5
By Ms. Dee Tee
Drive Wise is an awesome app. It serves as a great reminder. The name speaks for itself. It reminds me daily to drive wise, be more cautious as well as riding with a cautious driver. I love Drive Wise!
By eLiTe xB3A5T
Drivewise is useful in tracking my driving while earning rewards. The braking is too sensitive, I am usually trying to avoid the other drivers when pulling out in front of me or quick lane changes. I don't think I should be punished for others bad driving. Speed is not usually a problem for me but had a recent trip and the toll was 85 mph, I only went 80 but it kept tagging me!
