Texting while driving is steadily becoming one of the most common causes of fatal accidents in the United States. The problem continues to grow as texting further grows into the largest medium for communication.
There is a new app now created by Joseph Riano called Free Safe Text, which can be a great tool in addition to freetext.com, to keep texting convient for those on the go.
The creator says texting is now used more than ever and if you don’t respond to a text in a responsive manner, usually within five to ten minutes, people will assume the text’s receiver is ignoring them and does not wish to communicate.
This program acts like a voicemail to text messages, but can also be used when a person doesn’t want to be distracted.
Users select a default message to be sent automatically when a text received. Common choices include: “I will respond ASAP,” “I’m driving,” “I’m in a meeting,” etc.
While the app is in use, the phone will no longer notify the owner when a message is received in order to prevent distractions from happening.
While the app is a great idea, the safest and most cost effective way to not text and drive is to send a free text with freetext.com. This can be done through a mobile device or on a computer and is not a distraction like normal texting.
Those looking to keep their texting costs down should consider using freetext.com out of the sea of free texting sites available on the web. This site allows users to send a free text message without the fear of battling tons of harmful popup ads or malicious software.
