13 of 15

Since texting and driving can be a temptation for drivers of all ages, not just teens, Text’nDrive (free for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android) is an option that could be used for emergency messaging. The app allows you to listen to incoming text messages and send outgoing texts without touching your phone. (Note: Before downloading this app, check your state’s current laws on texting while driving. Some states, such as California, Arkansas, Alaska, and several others, have enacted full bans on any type of texting while driving, even if the texting is voice activated.)
