Road SMS: So you can Text while Walking

We all know texting while driving or walking could easily get you into accidents. With smartphones nowadays that use touchscreens, you will need more attention to the phone and less on the road ahead. But wait, there’s an app for that too — Road SMS.

Saw this Android app from the Samsung App Store that came pre-installed in the Galaxy S i9000.

The app uses the built-in camera to project an image of what’s in front of you and put it as a background on the screen while you are texting. That way, you’d be able to see what’s coming up even if you’re just focused on your phone typing away a text message.

I’m not sure if people would really use Road SMS regularly but I think it might come in handy someday.

    Tried Road SMS on the road, driving 40kph on a national hi-way (province) DANGEROUS! i held it at the top of my steering wheel para parang HUD, you can see the incoming cars and the one in front of you but the image is deceiving, you may think its far but the truth is its like hairline na lang ang distance, its better to park na lang and text, then drive like hell to catch-up for the lost time than be sorry. altho its good for bragging that your fone has that feature. kumbaga yabang points lang na nakaka inis, but i still use it tho, walking & txting sa loob ng mall.

    magandang application to kung mamboboso ka.. kunwaring nagtetext ka pero iba ginagawa…… useless application…

    kung mag drive ka ganun din (mabuti kung voice command ang texting) mas maganda pa yung bluetooth o wireless headset for voice call

    kung maglalakad kanaman alangang magtext ka na ang cellphone ay nasa bandang dibdib 0 ulo mo.. eh di prone naman to sa snatcher at holdaper..

    magandang pangalan ng application na to ay: PEEPING SMS

    Hi Yuga : that app you mention is nowhere to be found in the Samsung App Store. Can you link your source in your story? Are you sure you weren’t hoaxed by someone ?
