Texting while driving is dangerous. But if you're waiting for that all important message to come through, you dont want to pull over every time your phone goes off. Thats where drivesafe.ly claims to help.

Simply turn on the app and it wil read aloud text messages and e mails.

Theres no need to touch the phone while driving and no complicated set up either.

It can send instructions to hands free kits and set up automatic replies.

It also understands texting shorthand!

This app gave me a virus last time I downloaded on my Blackberry :(. It shut the phone off & texted all the people in my contact list with a link to the drivesafe.ly download page

I don't think so, I know what I did - my phone froze for over half an hour and shut itself off. When it eventually came back on loads of people textd me asking what I sent them - I didn't give it ANY form of permission to do that!The app quickly got deleted then my phone worked fine.

Seems to be a common problem, however the solution would appear to be "switch off the auto reply function."

Vlingo on Android is free and a super app that is similar

Says "coming soon for iphone" on the website ?

it forwards your sms or email to their server then converts to audio then sends back to you to be played. I have not seen what they do with your sms or email after that. but i do not want them to have access to all my email and SMS
