    Just saw on the news that vzw has a app that when installed on an android phone will not allow a text message to be sent or received while moving over 10mph. It is called textecution, 40 dollars, I call BS on that. I bet a dev could make one for for way less. Just thought I'd let everyone know it was out there. Texting and driving is a big issue.

    I think it's ridiculous that they would put such a hefty price tag on an app that could potentially save lives.

    Texting and driving is a big issue, but making an app and profiting off it is a horrid idea. The best thing to do, and what I plan to do (if I ever have kids), is to sit them down, tell them that it it terrible. Just enlighten them about how dangerous it is.

    Plus, if they can root a droid on their own, they can get rid of an app...

    Partents beating the hell out of their kids for texting while driving would be cheaper.

    no texts while flooring a golf cart?

    If someone is texting and driving they are at least doing 20mph.. then again my dad does that.

    The program would screw up in stop and go traffic situations

    That app should come pre-installed on all phones imo. People shouldn't be texting while driving.

    I agree people should text while drive. What happens when you are riding though...

    Yep it is in the market at 39.95. I am a bit of a noob, but that is by far the most expensive app I have seen! What could it be? A GPS signal and some kind of a do not open camand? (I am no developer, don't know the proper term to call it) They are on the web at Textecution - Premium Mobile Device Safety Application
