Detext - Stop your teen from texting while driving.

Detext - Stop your teen from texting while driving.

While catching up on the news this morning, I came across a new Android app, detext.  Many applications for smartphones have an entertainment or productivity element to them.  This one is all about safety.  The creators say that it "uses GPS  to monitor for speed. When the phone is in motion, detext automatically restricts text messages, phone calls, and other apps that may distract the driver."

This life saving app works on Android 2.2 and higher devices.  Parents cannot only stop texting-while-driving, they can also monitor their teen's speed.  My big question is, what happens if your teen is a passenger in the vehicle?  Detext has that covered too.  If your teen is a passenger and they receive a text, all they have to do is solve a simple puzzle to respond.  Remember you can customize these options and it's all free.

HE is the reason for the season, and HE comes to malls too

This video was shared with me.  It starts off as a regular Christmas flash mod but ends with a nice touch.  Our Holy Father has spoken about new evangelism, well this reached people where they were, and the memory will last longer than any sermon.
