Txt Blocker: Business Offers Will Power Service, Limiting Cell Phone Use
Cell phone bans while driving are being rolled out around the world, with varying penalties for those who still choose to talk or text and drive. While the distractions that cell phones can cause are obvious, there are some who just can't resist answering a ring or responding to a text even when they're on the road. Since some drivers lack willpower, there's a business that's decided to take advantage!
Txt Blocker offers a service that is actually quite cool. Using GPS technology in the phone, it's actually possible to set blocks upon receipt of phone or text messages during times when it's just not convenient or safe to talk, eliminating the imminent temptation. By entering an address, it's possible to limit use of cell phone when in locations like work or school; or setting time constraints during periods when users are typically behind the wheel.
Txt Blocker is a new service that allows individuals to manage their accounts online to set cell phone use control settings. At an affordable start-up and monthly rate, it's an innovative idea, but considering its main audience happens to be parents of teenage children, it's a business with a service that might be seen as an invasion of privacy by some.
