Jason Foundation: A Friend Asks®

Developed by the suicide prevention group Jason Foundation, this app helps users recognize the warning signs of suicide, including depression, “unusual interest in death and dying” or “loss of interest in things or activities they used to enjoy doing.” In addition to identifying warning signs, the app also provides easy access to resources such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Cost: Free. 




AT&T DriveMode®

Distracted driving, especially due to texting, is rapidly becoming one of the most significant causes of driving accidents. In fact, the National Safety Council says it factors in to 26 percent of accidents. With AT&T’s DriveMode app, incoming text message alerts can be silenced, so drivers won’t be tempted to look at or respond to incoming messages. AT&T postpaid customers can have an auto-reply sent that lets text senders know the driver is behind the wheel. One feature we really like for teen drivers – if the app is off, parents will be alerted. The app, which turns on at speeds greater than 15 mph, also lets music and navigation be easily accessed with one touch. Cost: Free.
