App. idea for iPhone developers (for other location aware phones as well)
Now that iPhone is going to have GPS built in, here is an application idea any of you iPhone app developers out there.
The idea is simple, whenever the phone-holder is driving, this app would automatically answer calls with a pre-recorded message (that can go like, “Hi.., I am driving right now, please leave a message and I will get back to you when I stop”) and record callers message with in the phone hard-disk (instead of directing the caller to cell phone company’s voice mail service) and play when the phone-holder choose to.
You can find out if the phone-holder is driving by monitoring how fast the GPS co-ords are moving (beyond a reasonable threshold of 10mph implies they are driving, of course the person could be in a moving car / train as a passenger, in that case, they will let the app know by tapping a few keys / options)
I think, this would prevent a lot of people from actually taking calls while driving, reduce some concentration laps. Of course, its wholenother story that people may drive less, thanks to fuel prices 😉
What do you think?
