Make Your Cell a Safecell

Posted by at 8:38 pm on September 28, 2010

SAFECELLapp has launched, designed to be the most advanced iPhone application on the market to address the growing problem of distracted driving. SAFECELLapp is a mobile application that provides a solution to keep you safe and legal by warning you of local no-text and no-cell rules, alerts drivers entering known school zones, and pays safe drivers back with cash rewards at their favorite retailers.

SAFECELLapp will automatically disable the phone, email, and messaging functions on 98 percent of smart phones when the driver exceeds 5 m.p.h. A BlackBerry version is also in the works. SAFECELLapp is the only application that will push current laws in place for users’ locations by using GPS technology and a proprietary database of federal, state, county, and city cell phone usage laws. SAFECELLapp features Continuous Visual Advisory capability, a function that issues real-time alerts to drivers entering locations with local restrictions on text or cell phone usage.

“Mobile devices have changed every aspect of how we live and interact with others. But too many of us find it impossible to ignore our phones when we are behind the wheel,” says Scott Taylor, SAFECELLapp co-founder and chief information officer. “Despite the increased awareness of the problem, people are not changing their driving behavior. This application takes the decision making out of the equation, allowing people to decide to drive safely at the beginning of their trip, rather than wrestling with the urge to answer the phone or check their texts once they’re already on the road,” says Taylor.


Unique to distracted driving applications, SAFECELLapp offers cash-equivalent rewards for safe driving behavior. The application activates when the device is traveling at speeds in excess of 5 m.p.h. Using proprietary, web-based tracking and logging mechanisms, SAFECELLapp records trip details including the driver’s phone, email and text usage. These reports, which can be accessed by users, parents, or companies to monitor driving behavior, become the basis for a first-of-its-kind gaming feature that awards points for safe driving that are redeemable for cash rewards at major retailers. Users will accrue 1 point for every 1 mile driven while adhering to all applicable wireless laws in their location(s).

Failure to comply with local laws will cost users reward points, giving individuals, families, and employees yet another motivation to play it safe while behind the wheel. The rewards program includes more than 2,000 different products that users can redeem their SAFECELLapp driving rewards points for including Ecerts, Gift Cards, Charitable Donations, and Merchandise. Retail partners include Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and many more.

With an extensive list of standard features, each version of the application was designed to assist individuals, families, and corporations in correcting the dangerous behavior that has made distracted driving a national epidemic.
