Driving Detective switches 'Do Not Disturb' on when you're in a moving vehicle
Driving Detective
Get it For: Free for Android

You probably already know just how dangerous it is to check your phone while driving. But you can’t help it, right? When the phone pings, there’s a sort of deep-rooted compulsion that drives you (no pun intended) to glance at the screen.

Many phones also have a silent or do not disturb mode but you have to remember to manually switch it on each time you get into the car. With this app, you just toggle it on and it takes care of the rest.

If you are afraid of missing a very important call, you can set exceptions. Some of the exceptions include contacts only, selected contacts and from repeat callers. It’s simple, free, ad-free and does the job well.

Some Android phones and all iOS devices have this feature built in, so look for that and enable it. On iOS, go to Settings > Do Not Disturb and scroll to find Do Not Disturb While Driving.
