Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
AppSolutions Inc. today announced that its new life-saving, location-based application, DESIGNATED DRIVER(TM), for the iPhone and iPod Touch, is now available on Apple's AppStore.
This unique iPhone app is one of the first such applications to allow a user to reach out to family, friends or a cab to request a ride when a designated driver becomes necessary. With a single push of a button on the iPhone screen you can send a text message to five or more of your friends simultaneously to request a ride.
Designated Driver takes advantage of the iPhone's built-in navigation capabilities to provide your current location with pinpoint accuracy. Friends will know exactly where to locate someone to bring them safely back home. The app includes the ability nationwide to text to a designated list of friends or even contact a local taxi company for a ride if necessary.
AppSolutions, Inc. partner Jason Ellis, commented, "We're very excited to introduce this socially responsible iPhone app to the market and we believe it has the potential to save lives and help individuals stay away from operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated."
Oliver Nam, another partner, stated, "We've designed this application with simplicity in mind so that anyone who is impaired can quickly request help from their friends without a lot of effort."
"iPhone and iPod Touch users have a simple yet powerful tool at their disposal to help themselves or a friend whenever and wherever needed. It's like having an insurance policy on your iPhone to help you avoid the tragic consequences of a DUI," commented Glenn Neely, partner in the development of the Designated Driver application.
Designated Driver's features include:
- Clear "push button" navigation screen resembling a stop light minimizes user confusion when they need help the most
- Simple configuration screen allows text message contacts to be pre-programmed
- Capability to text message five or more contacts simultaneously
- Convenient Taxi button contacts local cab company as another option if friends are not available
