Texting and driving may not be illegal in all 50 states yet, but it is a dangerous activity -- especially on touchscreen phones that require more attention to hit the correct key. While you can solve the problem with self control, it doesn't always work. A new app called SafeCell makes it easier to stop texting and talking while driving by offering a cash-equivalent rewards at many retailers.

SafeCell also takes the guesswork out of complying with calling and texting laws that can vary by state, county and city by pushing current cell phone use laws to your phone using GPS and a proprietary database of all the cell phone use and texting laws. This means in addition to earning rewards you can avoid getting a ticket for a local law you didn't know about.
