By now I know you have heard of the ItCanWait Campaign, since all of the major carriers – Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint – jumped on board last month. Have you still been texting and driving? If so, tsk tsk on you! If you are one of those people who find it hard to stop yourself, AT&T has an app that can help with that! DriveMode!
To help people who cannot resist the temptation to “text and drive” AT&T launched Drive Mode app that can beset-up to automatically send a customizable reply to incoming messages when the vehicle starts moving 25 mph. Then when the car has been under 25mph for over 5 minutes DriveMode switches itself off. No sweat for you right! Even if you are a passenger, which I frequently am because Jesus knows I hate driving :-D, it’s simple. Just click the green steering wheel and choose to turn it off. Piece of cake, if I must say so myself.
You can see how the app looks here on my HTC One.
At the present time, DriveMode is only available for AT&T customer, but that does not mean you cannot switch over to the AT&T LTE freaky fast service! LOL I’m just saying! I personally think it works well because it’s doesn’t require me to do anything except all the people who I want to be on the “whitelist” then it’s done! Anything that shaved off time and limits my thought process is a WIN in my books!
If you have AT&T check your apps, it should already be installed. Otherwise, just stop texing and driving. Jesus said IT CAN WAIT!!!
