ZoomSafer Prevents Texting While Driving for BlackBerry and Android Smartphone Users

ZoomSafer Prevents Texting While Driving for BlackBerry and Android Smartphone Users

LAS VEGAS, NV­ ZoomSafer announced today at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show that its innovative safe driving software is now available for Android phones, the fastest growing smart phone platform in the world.

³Governments throughout the world continue to pass new laws to combat distracted driving, but drivers still endanger themselves, their passengers, and their employers by texting, emailing and talking without using hands-free services,² said ZoomSafer CEO Matt Howard. ³Android-based smartphones are surging in popularity and we are excited to offer our patented software to Android users seeking to prevent distracted driving.²

ZoomSafer® client software installed on smartphones automatically launches when you begin to drive and automatically turns off when you are finished driving. ZoomSafer¹s patented on-device software can be configured to trigger using in-vehicle telematics or Bluetooth systems, as well as phone-based GPS services. Once triggered, the ZoomSafer software disables emailing and texting and manages other inbound and outbound communications based on client-controlled and administered policies. Popular policy options include the ability to make and receive hands-free phone calls and an auto-reply function, which sends messages to let others know that the user is driving.

Those interested in participating in the beta should click on the ³Android Beta² link on the ZoomSafer website.

ZoomSafer software is also currently available on BlackBerry devices. For more information or to participate in the Android beta, please visit ZoomSafer at CES in the Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall, Booth #2334 or at
