A parent who was concerned with his own addiction to distracted driving created this application. This addiction not only included texting, but also emailing, Facebook, the Internet, checking sports scores, playing games and any and every application on his phone. Lacking the self control and discipline to be safe, he wanted to give his young children (ages 13 and 11) the ability to control and monitor his use of the features on his phone that were so dangerous. He also realized, that not only could this application help himself and his family, but it could help parents with teen drivers, husbands and wives that wanted to help each other be safe while driving themselves with their children, and everyone else that has trouble fighting this life-threatening temptation.
This patented app was designed with only one thing in mind - protect our teenage drivers. It later evolved into a tool to not only help keep teenage drivers focused on the road, but to keep all drivers from being distracted.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We have worked hard to minimize this. Should you notice excessive reduction in battery life, or have any problems please report them to us on our contact page.
DriveSafe Mode is a tool to help monitor driver mobile device usage.

I'm a driver's Ed instructor and was testing this app in case I could recommend it to clients. It was overly complicated to set up. And even after seeking help from a techie friend and a teenager I could never get it to prevent anything happening with my phone while I was in the car.
I hope to find an app that is set up for an individual to put on without parental controls and with zero complication. I don't have much contact with the parents of my students. However Some of my students would determine to use it for themselves if it was set up to allow for that self-determination and to be mostly hassle free.
My dad put this on my phone, and it really helps prevent me from using it while driving. When he got an alert that I was using my phone while driving, he took my phone away for two weeks. I just got it back, and now I'll never do it again.
Let's face it. Kids don't always listen to their parents. It's great to know that I can make sure my kids are safe and not distracted while driving, as inexperienced operators. Setup was not difficult and notifications keep me on top of the situation when I can't always be there.
