Android app lets you walk and text safely

By
Ever come to grief walking down the street while reading or composing a text message on your phone? This Android app could be your salvation.

Israeli company, LiveSMS, has developed an Android app that superimposes the text window on the view seen by the phone's main camera, so you can simultaneously see what's ahead of you and what's in your text message.

The app offers full control of the transparency level and claims an additional "exclusive feature" - it allows you to cancel a text message after it's being sent.

It is available at no cost on a 14 day trial from Google Play (formerly the Android Market). The full version costs $2.56.

LiveSMS was "developed by three talented Israelis entrepreneurs who also launched the successful UndoSMS application about a year ago."

However in our experience SMS deliver can be almost instantaneous, so we have no understanding how effective this app would be, and the web site offers no clue.
