DriveSafe.ly app stops potential texting while driving and distracted driving incidents
DriveSafe.ly, a free mobile application aiming to stop distracted driving, has now been used by over one million people. The application is reading millions of text messages (SMS) aloud to drivers around the world - keeping their eyes on the road.

DriveSafe.ly was nominated for the 2009 Mashable Open Web Award for Best Mobile App, reads text messages and emails in real‐time without any action from the user.

The latest version features a ‘Speed Activated’ feature which turns the app on automatically when driving and off when exiting the vehicle, making it truly hands‐free and easy for drivers.

“DriveSafe.ly is taking off because people want to stay connected while they drive, and do it in a safe way” says Heath Ahrens, CEO of iSpeech and creator of DriveSafe.ly. “I recommend that everyone install DriveSafe.ly, not because I work for the company behind it, but because I actually use it and it stops texting while driving.”

The application can also automatically respond without users touching their mobile phone. Developed by iSpeech.org founder, Heath Ahrens, DriveSafe.ly utilizes iSpeech.org text to speech software as a service (SaaS) in hopes of eliminating the danger created by the growing number of drivers who text while they drive.

Users can download the application directly to their BlackBerry or Android smartphones.
