is there a way to have auto reply text while driving?

Views: 803 Replies: 14
I have scoured the internet for over an hour now, as well as the Apple app store, to no avail. Seriously, it's a sad day that we're in 2012 that there isn't an auto reply app or a feature the comes standard on the iphone that will automatically reply when a text message is received while driving. ***!!! please correct me if im wrong. (and i really hope i am).

Every single app that was mentioned on the internet is not available in the app store. nor was there any setting to have auto-reply setup. my state just outlawed texting while driving. wonderful. so tell me why the iphone, supposedly the best phone money can buy, does not have an app for safety purposes???!!! i'm floored by this!!!! IF I'M DRIVING, I WANT A SETTING OR APP TO TURN ON THAT WILL REPLY TO ANY TEXT MESSAGES I RECEIVE WITH A TEXT MESSAGE BACK TELLING THE PERSON I'M DRIVING/BUSY/WHATEVER

this has me considering an Android next time i re-up my phone........

There is no feature for that on the iphone, you can send a suggestion to Apple here

Closest thing would be Siri.

There is an app for iphone called "Descreet Text". It may work for you.

Sorry, that's "Discreet Text".

If you have AT&T there is an app called AT&T DriveMode that you can use.

****Sorry, didn't realize that it wasn't for iPhones. I'm an idiot.

I have also been looking for an app to do this, but have not found one to do the job.

Not helpful, but I think it's a sad day in 2012 that ANYONE needs to be told not to text while driving. The laws are too long coming. Even reading a text while driving is dangerous. Common sense.

If u read my original post, which is what CliveStevens had responded to, u'd realize its not about texting while driving. it's about the complete opposite.

I, myself have been searching forever for a good app that can do this. Unfortunately..SIRI is the closest thing as ED3K had mentioned. Although the time needed to get siri going and to send a might as well call them on your handsfree and tell them you cant text...

I looked into that "Discreet" text app you mentioned. Unfortunately, it's still not what I'm looking for because even tho ur responsing with a pretyped messaged, you still have to physically use ur phone to respond. :-( And I have the 4s so I do not have Siri on my phone.
