Smartphones are everywhere nowadays, and they come with useful apps that cater to virtually every conceivable function.

Driving is no exception, and there are apps that help to make driving a better experience, whether for safety or convenience.

Here are some useful apps for the Blackberry for drivers.

1. DriveSafe.ly – Free / Text'nDrive – Free

Drivesafe.ly and Text’nDrive are two ingenious applications that eliminate the temptation of reading your emails or SMS while driving; both the applications will read aloud your emails and SMS in real time while you focus on driving.
The best feature about the apps is that it enables you to reply by voice. Take note that the voice response is only valid for the PRO version of the two apps, which retails at SGD$27.25.
The only difference between these two apps is the interface, so it boils down to a matter of your preference.
