    Hi,
    I recently downloaded a speaking email and message notifier- for car use.
    I didn't like the voice, so removed it from my phone. The app was Dragon Mobile Assistant. All reference to the app has gone from phone, EXCEPT it still speaks the notifications and emails. There is also a ticker tape notifier running at bottom of screen. I do not want to reset phone, it took me weeks to get it as I want, but need to get shot of the app remnants.
    There is a Yahoo motif on the ticker tape bit at bottom of screen, but no Yahoo stuff found on phone.
    Can anyone help, please?
    Thanks,
    Greg

    The ticker; settings = lock screen= information ticker

    Driving mode toggle at top of screen. If not there , then download driving mode widget and turn it off with that

    Hi,
    Thanks for the info.
    Ticker tape has now gone. :) Not sure about widget thing---no driving mode at top of screen. This S3 is on o2 with Jellybean 4.1.2.
    Regards,
    Greg

    They only removed driving mode from the settings menu, it's still there. This link is to the widget for the s2 and s3 to turn it on and off.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arnab.drivingmode

    Some how it may have been enabled it can't hurt to check.

    Llama supports the widget natively, so you can create a llama event with it as well. The widget icon is pathetic, so you may want to make your own shortcuts to turn it on and off.
