Can the Dash app train you to be a better driver? One year road test! | Pocketnow

We use apps to track a lot of social behaviors. Fitness for example, is one area which has become significantly “game-ified”. Can we use a similar process to train people to become better drivers? The developers behind have created an ecosystem around vehicle tracking, maintenance, and driver behavior which aims to save you money and make you a safer driver. After using it for a year, has it helped? Here’s our long term road test of the Dash app!

Telling even more Services (Google, Dash) where I have been? Sharing my locations with yet another party? Thanks, but no thanks! You Americans really don’t know how to spell privacy. A little hint: the most secure data is the one that has never been generated!
