With texting while driving becoming a big reason for so many car accidents, injuries, and deaths all over the world, people everywhere are looking for ways to deter drivers from engaging in this possibly dangerous activity. The developers of Text No More have come up with a genius way to keep people from texting while driving: give them free stuff!

Text No More is an app available on all smartphone platforms that will hold incoming texts while it is active; sending a response stating that the person is driving and cannot reply. After the app is turned off or the time limit is over, the user will receive a coupon for every text that was blocked. Users can also gain points towards bigger prizes like iPhones and laptops.

 

Being able to get in on the big prizes requires paying $2.99 USD for the full version of Text No More, but the free version gives access to the coupons and smaller items. Text No More donates 25 cents of every full app purchase to organizations that benefit the families that have lost a family member to texting and driving.

 

"It is such a simple thing, but it really could save lives." Text No More creator Rodney Stearns said. "As a father it terrifies me to think how preventable some of these deaths could have been." Pick up the app at http://www.textnomore.com.
