Up front, I’m going to say I never text while I drive because typing correctly and driving well are mutually exclusive – you can only do one at a time. That said, this app is cool, and it’s even cooler that it’s from Samsung (who has been super cool lately – check out our unboxing and hands on for the Intercept and Captivate, and a Vibrant unboxing is coming soon.)
It’s called Road SMS, and it’s pretty self explanatory. The camera turns on, and much like when you’re in camera mode, it displays what the back of the phone is facing, but overlays the message layout. Very, very neat. It’s intended to be used for while you’re walking, not driving.
The app is available now for Samsung Galaxy S owners. Go, download, enjoy – but don’t use it to text while driving.
