State Farm Driver Feedback App is Just Asking to be Abused

We actually think this app will do more harm than good, but hey, State Farm is an insurance company so they clearly took calculated risks prior to releasing this. Their Driver Feedback app utilizes the iPhone’s GPS and accelerometer to calculate your driving, from acceleration to braking to cornering. It then calculates your score based on your driving which you can then compare to other trips and share your scores with other drivers.

While most people will want to try to get a high score with this app, we’re pretty sure there will be a portion of people who might go do some hard driving to see just how awful they can score. But hey, if any of you are interested in knowing just how awesome (or how awful) your normal driving skills are…there’s an app for that.

Check out a video of the app after the break.

    This seriously says “how well … your driving skills are”….. My services as a copy editor can be obtained for next-to-nothing. Seriously…. This is rediculous. In this instance “well” is talking about “are”. Well is an adverb describing, in this case, the way in which someone is “are-ing”. Who hires these barely literate people? A cursory proof-reading would have caught this.

    Hey Tom,
    In my experience, if you want to get a job, it’s probably best not to insult the staff and editor of the publication you’re trying to sell your services to. I mean, come on, that’s just “rediculous.”
