No Text While Driving, Daniel Finnegan


“No Text While Driving" is an application that allows the end user to open the app when he or she gets in the his or her car, and the app will automatically respond to any text message that is sent to the user's phone, with another text message, reading, “Hey, I’m driving right now, so I can’t text, but give a call on my hands free instead. Thanks.”

This app will be helpful to those users who live in states like California, where texting while driving is illegal. Users can simply flip on the app when they get in the car, and not have to worry about missing connections, breaking the law, or putting themselves or others in danger.
