End Distracted Driving With #JustOneTap @GetOneTap

Are you ready to take action and end distracted driving?

#JustOneTap app

A few weeks ago , I shared the launch of OneTap from the folks at AppColony. It’s a new breakthrough app created to put an end to distracted driving.

Currently only available for Android phones, the OneTap app (proudly supported by The Co-Operators Group) is your personal driving assistant on the go. AppColony is so passionate about this topic that the app is being offered as a free download for all Canadians.

OneTap is a revolutionary, free Android app, with iOS and French versions in development, which intelligently manages calls, texts and alerts so you can drive free from distractions, while relieving the anxiety associated with disconnecting for the duration of a trip of any length.

Check out this video overview to get a sense of how OneTap works and can help solve the distracted driving issue:

I reached out to a few friends who have downloaded the app to get their feedback. One of my good friends Donnette happens to be a real estate agent and she’s always on the go. She downloaded the OneTap app the same day of my post. She’s since had time to evaluate it and had this to say:

“I would highly recommend the app! It keeps the calls and texts out of sight and out of mind because it automatically comes on when you start driving and disables all alerts that would normally distract you. It sends an automatic message back to the person so that they know you are driving and you will get back to them when you stop. Good idea for drivers to minimize temptation of quickly texting while driving. As a realtor, it’s an app that would take getting used to because for my business because I get texts for pages from my office or house showing requests.”

As with any new app, it’s important to allow time to see how it can be integrated into your personal routine etc. I’m looking forward to the iOS release so I can try it out for myself!

For more detailed information, please visit getonetap.com or follow OneTap on Twitter.

    Love the idea of this App! I’m so surprised by the amount of people that I still see using their phone while driving.

    It is quite surprising how much of a difference it has been since the new legislation for leaving the phone alone while driving. I use to look at it all the time, and now I do not even consider it.

    I don’t use my phone when driving ever. So this isn’t for me, but I know some people who could use it.

    It does sound like a great app, as long as people use it right. I am going to download it and check it out.
