So this should work with anything that is movable. Gonna try this thing out in my desk chair.

I think the best way to get the worst score would be to just shake your phone violently for a few minutes.

Lol... I see less-safe scores becoming quite popular...
"dude, I hopped in my m5 and got a perfect zero on a 6 minute trip!!!"
"Wow! How many pedestrians??"

Does anyone else spot the major design flaw with this program. Since when do the g-forces that a car is subjected to have anything to do with how safe the driver is?
Everything in my car has to be strapped down or else it will not voluntarily remain in my car. I go through tires every 10K miles. (yes I enjoy driving) Been driving just over 35 years now. How many objects have I hit? Zero. How many objects have tried to hit me? More than I care to count. How many aforementioned objects have actually succeeded in hitting me? Zero.
My driving style would probably scare more than a few of you (esp on the track) but I'll put my driving safety up against anyone else at any time. People that have never driven a car on the edge of control have no idea what to do when that line is crossed. They sit at the wheel with a dazed expression on their face as the world spins sickeningly around them NEVER MAKING ANY EFFORT to regain control. They aren't stupid. They just have never had the opportunity to learn what to do.
This app is worthless. If you want to be safe, just relax and drive. Don't "get in the car". Think instead in terms of "putting the car on." It should feel like it is part of you. Always assume the other drivers have their heads up their rear ends. Know what's around you at all times and always have more than one "alternate route" planned just in case someone in the group of cars around you does something mindnumbingly moronic.
And for those times when you do go beyond your comfort zone and "scare" yourself, don't just brush it off. REMEMBER IT. Identify what you learned, what worked and what didn't.
Don't drive wimpy, underpowered cars. The accelerator can also get you away from a crash IF the car can actually accelerate.
Lastly, make sure your car is in good working order. You shouldn't have to deal with equipment failures at the same time that you are fending off someone's immanent attempt at merging their car with yours.

Oh cool an app that can tell you about spikes in the accelerometer... So pointless.

I like how the community gets off the subject fast because of the grammer. Modmyi can write about unlock for iPhone 4 but make mistakes on purpose with grammer, people would still be talking about grammer rather than issues they have if any. Seems these days everyone is so concerned about grammer that they actually forget why they opened the news link in the first place.
