Really? AT&T and all the other large corporations run on Windows. They focus on getting their programs working first then they work on the others. Apple hopes to be the leader on their network but they essentially make 1 phone and have a very small share overall of the wireless market. Complain to AT&T.

att has absolutley nothing to do with the apps or the ios on the iphone - that is 100 percent apple, no one else. they do not allow direct acces to the device and if you want it, then google jail break or hacking the iphone for a way to do it. Apple does not even allow developers to access the base kernal level and drivers on the phone with the SDK that they offer

Might want to relook at your comment about all the other largoe corporations runs on windows - may have been trwu 10 years ago, but things are changing.

AT&T wrote the app for android devices and soon the WP8. I don't recall an iOS announcement. However there are several text and drive apps available. Even the core built "do not disturb".

Can't find Anything.…and a GPS activated drive mode should be standard on all phones with a manual over-ride feature. It's a no brainier for no brainers!

Do we really need an app for this come on people use some common sense when behind the wheel of an automobile.

As for Apple not having a particular app not all are submitted to Apple and when they do they still have to meet their approval which has kept the phone safe unlike the competition where a nasty can slip in.

I do agree before the iPhone the best I could get for productivity was a Blackberry.

I remembet the Apple ,TRS80 and the Comodore 64 available for consummer use but not an IBM in the stores must have missed that one.

Apple did not invent the mouse but they were the first to use one in a consummer computer.

They are also the one who made the Trackpad better and more useable.

they have the perfect "no brainer" resolution where I live - if the leos see you texting and driving it is a stoppable offense whth a hefty ticket cost, using a cell device without a hands free while driving is also a stoppable offense. The insurance companies are now pulling phone records in the case of a accident to see if any texting was going on in the case of a accident investigation. The best solution, aka "no Brainer" solution is to take personal responsibilty and not text when you drive.

Your iPhone has a built in drive mode. Next time you get in the car, look at the top of your phone. See that button up there? Press and hold it for three seconds. You'll then see a red slider at the top of the screen. Slide it to the right and drive mode is engaged.

 

All it takes is a little common sense. When you're driving, leave the phone alone or turn it off. No text message is important enough to take your attention away from what you should be doing (driving).

Read through the thread --

 

I am sure that ATT has submitted the app to Apple -- but that is not how Apple works -- they need to approve the app before it can be listed for sale in the App Store, even if that comes from ATT or Verizon or whomever.  That process can take from days to months depending on the program.

 

In this case, ANY attempt to use Apple's system, which this app would require to access their texting system, is not permitted by Apple....

 

I'm sure ATT will figure out a way to do this, but for now, its not available.
