There are quite a few apps out there that attempt to make driving with a BlackBerry on hand a little less distracting. The latest to hit the scene is Otter which dubs itself as a “Text and Drive app solution.” The app offers drivers a few selectable options to cut down on distractions while driving including:
- One Touch Text Response
- Auto-reply w/ timer
- Editable/grouped responses
- Parental Control(GPS based)
- GPS Mode: Silences incoming text & call ring tone alerts
The Otter app requires OS 4.5 and up and is available now for $3.99 in App World. I am not a huge fan of the fact that it makes texting while driving a little easier with fast pre-canned responses but I guess it is better than people typing while driving. Let us know if you pick up the app and how it compares to the other driving apps out there.
