Get Paid To Stop Texting And Driving!
Oct 29th, 2010
A NEW SMARTPHONE APP PAYS YOU TO STOP TEXTING AND DRIVING
I love the idea for this smartphone app, because it's finally figured out the best way to keep people from texting and driving. Trying to scare people with statistics hasn't stopped them . . . so maybe PAYING THEM will.
--The app is called SAFECELLapp. Right now it's available for the iPhone and Android phones, with a BlackBerry version on the way. And, yes, it pays you to stop texting and driving.
--Safecell uses your phone's GPS to figure out when you're traveling more than five miles per hour. You get one point for every mile you drive without sending a text or making or receiving a call on the phone.
--For every 500 points, you get a $5 gift card, which you can use at hundreds of different stores that have partnered up with Safecell, including Amazon, Sony, Marriott, Canon, Apple, and more.
--You can get up to $250 in gift cards every year.
--The app has a $12-a-year subscription fee. AOL
