Mobile Apps

There are several apps for mobile phones that can help to keep you from calling and texting while driving. The image below lists a few different apps and their features. Choose the App that works for you.

  • DriveMode. AT&T customers using an Android or Blackberry device can download this app. It automatically sends preset replies to incoming texts to let people know that you’re driving.
  • DriveSafe.ly. This app also runs on Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Apple devices. It reads your incoming texts and emails and automatically responds to them. (Note: This app does not respond to regular SMS or MMS text messages on Apple devices. It only responds to Google Voice SMS messages.)
  • Text-STAR. Available for Google users, this app senses motion and disables texting when you are traveling more than 10 miles per hour and can respond with preset text messages.
