The carrier announced the availability of the DriveSmart Plus app, which is the creation of Location Labs, that can be download on T-Mobile devices like the LG Optimus T; with more being supported down the road. Essentially, DriveSmart Plus is a subscription-based, opt-in service that will monitor when you're driving and place your smartphone into “Driving Mode.” Naturally, it'll disable specific functions like texting and calling while you're in motion in the car – which undoubtedly will keep you more focused on the road.
However, users can manually override “Driving Mode” in the event of an emergency or if you're simply a passenger in car. Furthermore, parents can monitor these override activities via text messages, email, or through the use of a web interface.
