Everyone knows texting and driving is dangerous, yet when a text message comes in, it's difficult not to respond. AT&T DriveMode is a free* app that silences incoming text message alerts so you can stay focused while driving. The AT&T DriveMode iOS App for iPhone uses the In-App Messaging API to send auto replies on behalf of the driver indicating the driver is on the road and unavailable to text. The AT&T Webhooks Notifications API provides push notifications for the AT&T DriveMode iOS App.
