Personal Feedback and Parenting mode added to Sprint Drive First app

By Amy Johnsonbaugh

I’ve already written about why I love the Sprint Drive First application.

If you haven’t already, make sure to download our new and improved Sprint Drive First application which is FREE in Google Play. Also share with your friends and family the important benefits this app offers.

In addition to some of the great features users have come to know and love, the new Sprint Drive First app has an improved user experience and several new features, making it even easier to focus on what matters most – safe driving.

Sprint Drive First locks your Android smartphone when the phone’s GPS detects motion above 10 miles per hour. It directs incoming calls to voice mail and silences distracting alerts. A customizable auto-response can be sent to all text messages, which are held until the driver comes to a stop.

New features include: Personal feedback: Tracks how many miles you’ve driven using the app; Parenting Mode: to ensure loved ones drive safe, it can lock or enable certain apps and put a parental lock on the app so it cannot be uninstalled.
