Perfect App! Brilliant little app. Great GUI and very user friendly. I’m running ProtextMe on a Samsung Galaxy and this is the first text and e-mail mute and auto replying app that works perfectly with my phone. The app is totally hands-free, doesn’t need any maintenance and I don’t have to remember to turn it on when I start driving, the genius thing is that it identifies automatically when I start driving and turns on! I think I will buy the full version with the auto stop feature, so that it will turn on and off fully automatically and hands-free. Highly recommend.
There’s no two ways about it, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the United States. Per mile driven, teen drivers aged 16 to 19 are three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to die in a crash. Teens are more likely to underestimate risk, teens are more likely to speed, and to compound matters, teens are less likely to wear seatbelts. So, what can a parent do to help ensure the safety of their teen driver on the road? This app helps to keep your teen driving safely can help. Education, reducing distractions, and keeping an eye on their activities has also proven remarkably effective—which is exactly what this app helps you do.
