by: Jess Goodwin

Widespread campaigns from the government, other apps to stop texting and driving, and national safety organizations are contributing to growing levels of awareness about distracted driving.

Can TextNinja become the best app to stop texting and driving?

So what is the best app to stop texting and driving? The jury is still out. Watch as we compete on Bootstrapping in America’s XL competition for a $25,000 investment into our company. We’re competing against 9 other startups for a chance to win an investment from the TastyTrade network. We qualified for the competition, and now we get a two minute pitch, plus a Q&A Analysis session with Kristi Ross and Tom Sosnoff, both who admit that they need TextNinja!

TextNinja competes on TastyTrade and tries to convince them that they are the best app to stop texting and driving.

The Journey of a Long Road

Although the seatbelt was first invented in the mid 19th century, it wasn’t until the 1950’s that a lap belt became commonplace in automobiles, and it was even later when the shoulder strap was added. Finally in 1970, the world’s first seat belt law was put into place (in Australia).

Unfortunately it seems that the problem of distracted driving is taking a similarly long time to solve.

Over time, though, awareness is growing, and solutions like TextNinja are getting closer and closer to a widespread adoption that can change the social trends associated with texting and driving.
