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.

Never get rewards The app may stop me from touching my phone in HOPES of rewards, but I never get any (I do get credit for trips but never get any prizes.) Do I just have bad luck or does it actually give any out?

Has potential I love the idea, but I already have 2 doubts: nowadays almost every app has popups and remembering to manually deactivate ALL of them before a trip can be hard and it's also a lot of work. There should be a shortcut in the app to block popups and I guess it would require accessibility or device manager authorization. Second problem: what if I have to use the navigator? Instead of blocking all apps there should be a feature to allow at least Google maps or waze and detect when you exit the app.

Errors out after every drive Doesn't let me go back into the app at all after one drive because of the "two minute" error despite it being a day since I last used the app. Very disappointed.
