State Farm Insurance released a free iPhone app that serves as a mobile driving coach. Its primary audience are teenagers learning to drive and their parents.
The app measures acceleration, braking, and cornering. A score is provided for each driving behavior. GPS locations are stored as well. Comparison’s can be made between different trips (same driver) or different drivers.
State Farm says:
1. State Farm does not collect the trip information.
2. The data recorded by this app will not impact your insurance rates.
