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.
