Description of modes:
A. AUTO mode - reading is started when text message arrives.
B. SHAKE mode - when message arrives, you can shake your phone to hear the message. Detection of shake runs for 1 minute (you can set 10 sec to 5min). This is for the reason of battery-saving. Note, that on some phones, if message arrives and screen is OFF, first you have to simply click the power button before you shake.
* If you get undesired shake-detections or shakes are hard to detect, please adjust sensitivity in Settings > Shake sensitivity.
Can be used in both auto and shake mode. If enabled, you can repeat the last reading by shake. Shake detection will run since last reading until timeout is over (the same as in shake mode).
