With nearly every American having a smartphone, there is no excuse not to have an application that is based around safety—especially when it is safety behind the wheel. The following are five of the best apps to improve safety on the road:
Drive First is an application that detects when the user is driving. Calls and text messages are then automatically responded to by letting callers and texters know that the driver is behind the wheel and is unable to take their call or respond at the moment.
This application offers a range of personal driving assistance features. These include collision warnings, and even a video recording feature that acts as a black-box in the event of a collision.
The purpose of this application is to reduce driver distraction by making more features on one’s phone hands-free. Car manufactures, such as Jaguar and Land Rover, are incorporating it into their Apple iOS 8 infotainment platform.
After the driver of the car reaches 15 mph, the app silences messages (if set up to automatically turn on after a certain speed). The application also offers a list of up to five contacts that the driver can call hands-free, and parents of a young driver are able to be notified if the app is turned off.
iBolt Dock’n Drive
This app promotes hands-free usage of their cell phone by pairing their phone to their car dock, and making the dock look like the phone’s home screen. There are large buttons so the driver can easily make calls and perform other safe tasks.
