Apps for Texting and Driving – A Quick Comparison

More Clearly: Distracted Driving Awareness

TextNinja is very happy to be part of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, helping to raise distracted driving awareness! It is in honor to take part of something so historically large in size and importance in the automobile innovation scene.

A Kickstarter Campaign for Awareness

In November, 2015, we launched a Kickstarter campaign. The goal was to share our solution on how to stop texting and driving with as many people as possible. Why? Because this is an issue that’s going to take more than money, more than a few backers, and more than gimmicks to solve. This campaign was our first step towards solving distracted driving.

How to stop texting and driving? This Kickstarter campaign tries to answer the question.
