Drive Alive Lite

Drive Alive Lite


Get rewards for not texting while driving! Drive Alive is an app that monitors your application usage while it is running to give you credit for being a safe driver. This is the Lite version of Drive Alive and contains advertisements that appear after a trip has been completed.


Directions:
1. Before driving, open Drive Alive and log in.
2. To make sure you receive credit for all your time spent driving, wait for the app to get a GPS connection.
3. Drive!
4. After coming to a complete stop, press the End Trip button.

After that, the application will verify that you are stopped and send the trip data.


Features:
• If you receive credit for a trip you will become eligible for rewards. (Cash, discounts, and more!)
• Receive some rewards instantly! No building up points! Just one trip could mean money in your PayPal account.
• Easy to use: Simply run the app, drive safely, press End Trip, and profit!
• Drive Alive will NEVER block you from using any of your phone's features.


The following will cause loss of trip credit:
• Driving while the application is ending.
• Answering the phone.
• Opening other applications. (This includes texting!)
• Pressing the 'Home' button while the GPS is connecting or after a trip has started.
• Locking the screen.
• Pressing the 'Home' button or locking the screen after pressing 'Stop Trip' but before letting the app finish sending trip data.
• NOTE: It's possible that some alarms/pop-up notifications will cause a loss of trip credit. You may want to disable these prior to starting a trip if you have trouble.


The following will NOT cause loss of trip credit:
• Receiving a call/text, but not responding.
• Letting the phone screen turn off by going idle. (The screen will not lock automatically while a trip is active.)
• Touching the screen without closing the app or opening a new one.

Remember, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Only worked for one trip This app is a great idea, and I hope one becomes available that works properly. Every time I tried to use it I got a notice saying I couldn't start a trip within 2 minutes of ending another (it had been hours). I tried every day for a week on my way to and from work. Tried forcing stop on the app and it still didn't work. Unfortunately I uninstalled, but I would give it another try if bugs are fixed!

Good app This app is a great idea to prevent distracted driving. Haven't had any issues with the app since the last update and I've made $3 for something I would be doing anyways. Make anyone you know that texts or uses their phone get this app! Even if it only stops one distracted driver it's a great idea.

Great App to Prevent Distracted Driving This app really helps me focus on the road since under my companies personnel policy rules cell phone use is prohibited while driving. A huge bonus is the incentive for cash deposited into your PayPal account. Make sure you try everything to correct issues before blaming it on bugs bc my BlackBerry data cord that I used to charge my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone interfered when I went to shut the car off it cancelled it out to my homescreen. Customer service is great just email your issues before posting bad app!

Really creative way to keep drivers off of their phones I really love the idea behind this app. It's a great way to incentivize not using your phone while driving. You can still listen to music through your phone if it's playing in the background which is perfect for me. I've never had an issues with the functionality of the app. The only problem I had was a user error on my part and the creator resolved it for me through e-mail. Definitely try this app out. It's a great way to stay safe on the road and you can earn rewards :)
