The statistics are staggering – Drivers who use hand-held devices are 4 times more likely to get into crashes and worse still, texting while driving makes you 23 times more likely to crash.

The Drive Agent app was built to reduce driver distraction on the road and eliminate the need to fiddle with your phone while driving.  It silences your phone, auto-responds to messages and calls, and launches specific driving-related apps.

The app activates seamlessly when you get in your car, so you don’t have to worry about turning it on and off.  Once configured, this app will keep running in the background.

Initial setup is simple and it’s able to detect when a user is in the car using a number of different triggers.

Activity detection- the app knows when the user is in a vehicle using motion sensors in the device

Bluetooth– when the app detects a pre-configured bluetooth device it can activate

Widget– this can be placed on the home screen for easy access

NFC– a tag can be used to trigger the app to turn on and off

Drive Agent has 4.5/5 Stars and is available to download for free in the Google Play Store.
