"Drivers Ed" remains Android 2.2-compatible in this maintenance release!
DriversEd was designed to help me track my daughter's driving time while she has her learner's permit.
Using "Drivers Ed", I can easily enter her information, and then immediately begin tracking her progress as she is driving.
I just click on her name (Susanna), then click "Start Session". The display counts down the hours and minutes as she drives. When we get home, I click "End Session" and her time is stored in the built-in database.
When the timer reaches 00:00, she is ready for her license!
This app is useful not only for parents teaching their children to drive, but also for any "Drivers Ed" instructor trying to keep track of multiple drivers simultaneously.
As a bonus, the program also tracks the Nighttime driving hours she is accumulating. In our state, she needs 15 hours of night driving (out of the total). The total number of hours needed and the total number of nighttime hours are parameters that are settable in the program.
DriversEd even includes a reporting capability. At any time, I can bring up the Driving Report card and then email it to my daughter right from my phone.
DriversEd can handle any number of student drivers simultaneously!
Another quality app brought to you by PC Lifesavers!
