I know that there is no text or email worthy of taking my eyes off the road while driving, especially now that I’m carrying precious cargo in the back seat. But the urge is strong, oh so strong, to see what message has just popped up, and I’m such a good driver, there’s hardly any traffic, I’ll just grab my phone and take a quick peak, only for a second. . .
DriveSafe.ly reads your phone’s texts and emails out loud
and you don’t have to take your hands off the wheel once. You can even
preset your own auto text response like Am driving, call l8r.
It’s currently available only for Blackberry and Android phones, but expect iPhone and Windows Mobile versions soon. [ed note: We're still waiting!]
I think it’s perfect for new moms who are busy nursing or find
themselves trapped on the couch with a sleeping baby in their arms.
Because no matter how much I wanted to see who was emailing me, there is
no way I’d have budged an inch to pick up the phone once I finally got
the baby down. -Christina
