- Sprint's Drive First
It will also direct all calls straight to voicemail for the duration of your trip. But don’t worry: Your GPS apps will still work. Visit the app's website to download this life-saving software.
This app will read text messages and emails out loud. The best part? You can respond using the text-to-speech function.
The app will set you back around $80 per year. However, bear in mind that car accidents cost Texas taxpayers more than $4 billion annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Head here to download this app for Blackberry, iPhone, or Android.
Here’s your quick fix: This no-nonsense app disables text messages as soon as you hit a speed over 10 miles per hour. There goes the temptation to swipe through your phone. Get the app here.
How does Cellcontrol work? The software integrates with Bluetooth technology built into your car. That means it's not relying on GPS info to tell it when to jump into action, giving you an immediate lock down on all that distracting tech. Get it here.
Next time you hit the road, block the distractions with these top apps. However, if you have been the victim of a car crash caused by a distracted driver in Austin, you deserve compensation.
