T-Mobile's Drive Smart app for Android limits your phone's functions while driving
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.
