“Charging smartphone users lots of money to lock down their property and then throwing in recurring fees is a formula that ultimately annoys customers and gets them to debate civil liberties instead of public safety”, said OTTER Co-Founder, Jon Lam. “We have noticed an increase in employees buying second smartphones when their company’s cell phone is locked down. This individual is still texting while driving and so we have missed our opportunity to create a sustainably safer driver”, adds Jon Lam.
HOW OTTER WORKS:
OTTER’s patent pending concept, first developed in late 2009, made it the first app of its kind that integrates a texting auto reply and GPS functionality to produce a tool that allows users to manage their texts while they are at home, in the office or, most importantly, on the highway. OTTER includes a GPS based Parental Control feature for the highest risk drivers - teens. Parents can enter a session specific pass code on teen’s phones to make sure that GPS Mode is on when the user is driving. OTTER presents itself as a texting management system for any situation. Its easy to schedule "texting blackout periods" so you can focus on the task at hand, like an important meeting or a movie, without feeling disconnected from your personal network. In short, OTTER is offered as a tool to the texting culture instead of an invasive texting "lock down" system.
