Galaxy S has the ultimate phone App EVER!!!

No more bumping into cars and other foreign objects while texting!!!



Quote:
We haven't actually seen it for ourselves, but we're hearing the Samsung Galaxy S can download an interesting little app. Called Road SMS, the basic idea is that the phone's camera constantly runs to let you see through the screen, while a virtual keyboard allows your fingers to safely text whomever you want. Needless to say, it's a very bad idea for number of reasons -- not least of which the fact that thumbs will always obscure the screen -- but we'll leave discussion of the pros and cons for the comments below. To be frank, we don't think folks will use this app seriously. We're just hoping someone will develop an augmented reality joke version that, ever so often, generates ghostly images of high speed oncoming traffic. And remember kids, don't text and drive.

Re: Galaxy S has the ultimate phone App EVER!!!

Doesn't the iPhone have a similar app that was developed about a year ago? I'm not trying to hate, just curious. It is a pretty cool feature, though I remember the app was getting dogged on the iPhone as many users stated it was useless and pointless as they don't hold their phones 3 inches from their face... So far this thread is receiving a completely opposite type of response.

Did you factor in the average IQ of an Android user to an iPhone user lol...jk

if what you say is true, remember iphone has a smaller screen and at the time had a worse camera....so it makes a difference...

I thought the praise here was sarcastic? Obviously it is stupid to text while you are driving.
