One of the things that scares me the most about cell phones is texting while driving. It is so dangerous and can lead to accidents in just seconds. At the beginning of the year, a young girl was driving down our street while texting and hit my husband’s truck, totaling it. So when I heard about Textecution, I wanted to share it with you.
Once you install Textecution on a phone, it sits quietly in the background and allows you to use your phone as you normally would. ButÃ‚Â it can detect when your phone is going over 10 mph. Once the app recognizes that the phone is traveling faster than that, it disables the phone’s texting feature so text messages cannot be sent or received.
Once the phone slows down (traveling at a speed slower than 10mph) the texting feature seamlessly becomes available for use, and text messages may be sent or received.
There is a way you can override the feature (like if my husband is driving and I’m in the car with him).Ã‚Â All you have to do is “allow” the app to be overridden. The only person that can do this is the app administrator (the person who installed it on the phone).
And if you use this app on your teen’s phone, they can’t get rid of it. If he or she tries to delete the app off their phone, Textecution sends a text to the parent and then sends a free download back to your teen’s phone!
What do you think? Would you put Textecution on your phone? I think everybody should!
