Great news for parents of teenagers! A new application disables cell phones while driving.
Jonathan Young, president of Textecution, developed a user-friendly phone application that can disable the cell phone whenever a car is moving. It took two months to develop the software which links the device to the vehicles GPS functions. When the vehicles moves more than 10 mph, all texting is disabled. Once the vehicle stops, it is available again.
Parents are given the authority to enable and disable the software as they see fit, for example, if the teen is a passenger in the car, Mom and Dad would probably be willing to allow them to text while moving.
Textecution is an application for phones utilizing the Android Platform.
Textecution believes the application will be on the phones of most teenagers in three years.
