An app developed by a Florida woman has been credited with helping her keep her car safe during a carjacking.
Marta Molloy, 27, says she has to get out of the car every time she uses her phone to check her email, make a call, or check Facebook.
She says she can’t do all that while driving because the car is too far away.
She had to buy an app called Mobile Emotion Control to be able to safely access her phone while driving, but she doesn’t like the way it works.
Mollot is the founder of Mobile Emotional Control, a smartphone application that helps people stay in control while driving.
It’s a little bit like a GPS tracker in your hand, she said.
You have to be there to use it and it’s not always in your best interest to use the device at the same time.
I think that there’s something wrong with the way that technology is used.
It’s not the most secure.
I have to use my phone as a tool.
I can’t drive in a car without the app on my phone.
I need to be out of there as fast as I can, and then the car’s going to drive itself into a ditch.
Molloy says the app helps her keep an eye on her phone so she can take quick and accurate pictures of herself while driving and take them with her.
She also has a dashboard camera that she can use while she’s driving so she doesn�t have to worry about her phone going missing.
Molls family says she’s grateful to have an app that helps keep her safe, and that she is just doing what is right for her.
They are working with the app company, Marta Mobile, to develop a second version that will include features like facial recognition and emergency alerts.
