The OTTER (One Touch Text Response) app that previously sold for $3.99 will now be available indefinitely for Android smartphones as a free download. “Carriers, phone makers and all other entities that help facilitate texting and driving will eventually move to include our innovations in the smartphone box. We just want that day to be today,” says OTTER Co-Owner, Troy Niehaus. Every year in the United States, Text and Drive takes 5,500 lives on the highway and causes hundreds of thousands of non-fatal accidents. A recent CDC report shows nearly 60% of teens are actively texting and driving. A driver using the OTTER software to reply to their texts while driving is 23 times more likely not to be involved in an accident.
HOW OTTER WORKS:
The OTTER software, first developed in late 2009, was the first app of its kind that integrated 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 also includes a GPS based Parental Control feature for the highest risk drivers - teens. OTTER presents itself as a texting management system for any situation. It’s easy to schedule "texting blackout periods" so you can do one thing well, like focus in an important meeting or a movie, without feeling disconnected from your personal network.
