Rode Dog Wins Big Bucks for Preteen Owner
Eleven year-old Victoria Walker has designed an app that literally barks if someone uses a smartphone in his/her car and will not stop until the phone is put down. When an entire group adopts "Rode Dog", a tattletale can warn a friend if he/she suspects there is some unsafe texting going on.
With assistance from software designer David Grau, the app earned a $20,000 award for its owner from AT&T's "It Can Wait" contest that rewards developers that try to help solve the text while driving problem. Look for its launch later this year when it becomes available for iOS, Android and Windows phones.
