TXT SHIELD™ - Responds So You Don't Have To View Larger Image
Up until now there have been a few apps and cell phone programs that allowed for the monitoring and prevention of texting while driving, but we have yet to see one as creative and helpful as TXT SHIELD™.
TXT SHIELD™ is a revolutionary app that prevents users from texting once the car reaches a certain speed (the speed can be selected by an administrator or parent, the activation ranges from 10 – 40 mph), and also sends auto text responses to let people know you are driving and will respond as soon as you get to a safe location.
The app is fully customizable, so anyone can set it up and either select from pre-drafted autoresponse messages, or craft their own custom messages. The app also alerts administrators if it is shut off or if a user overrides the settings (helpful for a parent/teen setup), but it does come with password protection to prevent being shut off without administrator approval.
While this particular app is currently only available through the Google Play Store for the Android OS, we are hopeful that other carriers will pick up on the usefulness of this app and make it standard on all cell phones in the future.
We know the temptation to use your cell phone while you’re driving is real, but we urge you to consider the consequences. There are over 3000 people who are killed each year because drivers are distracted on the roads. We ask you to take a minute to read over the statistics and how distracted driving impacts our nation. Make it a priority to download an app like this one, or find another way to hold yourself accountable to not texting and driving.
