Just introduced Tuesday at the CES was ZoomSafer. This application might be the perfect solution to the problem of texting while driving because it automatically disables the SMS and email functions of a cellphone while a vehicle is is motion. With ZoomSafer on a phone, the app uses the car's telematics, Bluetooth system or the phone's GPS to see if there is motion. If ZoomSafer detects that the vehicke is on the move, the software disables emailing and texting and handles inbound and outbound communications based on previous choices you made. For example, you can choose whether or not to make or receive hands-free phone calls. You can also choose an auto-reply function, which sends a message to those texting you that you are on the road and are unable to answer. Once ZoomSafer detects that the vehicle has stopped, the phone returns to normal functionality.
The product is available now for all North American BlackBerry devices running BlackBerry OS 4.2.1 or higher. The cost is $25 a year or $2.99 a month. A 7 day free trial is available.
