There is no hiding the fact that I love my iPhone! I'm constantly searching for apps that can earn me rewards. Just a few weeks ago, I was asked to review the SAFECELLapp, which is available on iTunes and AppBrain for $11.99 (annually).
SAFECELLapp is the most advanced mobile application for iPhone and Android OS on the market to address the growing problem of distracted driving. SAFECELLapp is also the only mobile application that offers a solution to the problem of distracted driving while rewarding safe drivers with cash rewards at their favorite retailers.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that in 2009, 5,474 people were killed in U.S. roadways and an estimated additional 448,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes as a result of distracted driving.
More shocking facts:
- Drivers who use hand-held devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves. (Source: Insurance Institute for Highway Safety)
- Using a cell phone use while driving, whether it’s hand-held or hands-free, delays a driver's reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent.
Over the holidays my family and I did some traveling, which gave me the perfect opportunity to test-out the SAFECELLapp! I found this app to be fairly simple to use. Just run SAFECELLapp while driving and the app automatically tracks your position plus warns you of local no-text and no-cell rules.
For each (safe) one mile you travel, you receive one point. Of course, using this app won't make you rich, but over time you can earn enough points to redeem for cash rewards!The only downside I ran across was the fact that this app drains your battery! So if you are making a long trip, then don't forget to bring your phone charger!
SAFECELLapp provides the perfect solution to the growing problem of distracted driving. It’s automatic. It pays you back. And it just might save your life! For more information, visit http://www.safecellapp.com.
