Flo Rates How Well You Drive, Helps You Improve [Android]

How confident are you in your driving skills? Good driving can be summed up as avoiding traffic tickets, staying out of accidents, and following traffic rules but really if you didn’t do all that you’d get arrested or have your license revoked. At the very least you’d pay a fine. So if you’re really just following rules are you a good driver? Use Flo on your Android device to find out. It is a very interesting app that scores how you drive. You’re penalized for things such as hard breaking, hard acceleration, sharp turns. When you accelerate smoothly, take a smooth corner, or brake easy, the app gives you points. Your drive is divided into 1KM segments and you get rated for each segment. At the end of the segment, you can see how well you did. Flo lets you record several trips and then compare your driving over the week...

Install flow and launch it before you get into your vehicle. Launch the app, (sign in  if you want to or skip the step) and tap the little driving wheel button to start your first trip. You can pause the trip any time so if you need to make a stop for something you won’t have to restart your trip. Trips can be paused and resumed from the notification area and from the app.

Start driving and the app will let you know what you’re doing well and what you’re doing poorly. It shows you the distance you’ve travelled, and how long you’ve been driving.

Once you’ve arrived at your destination, tap the flag button to mark the trip complete and you will get the following summary of that trip. Tap Overview to see how you’ve done over the week. The app uses GPS to track your location and will tell you where you started and ended a trip as well as the total distance you traveled.

By default, the app measures distance in kilometers but you can change it to a different unit from the app’s settings which you can access from the navigation drawer. You can set the app to automatically record trips when it detects you’re in a moving vehicle and you can enable night mode to view the app screen easily at night. The app lets you check back on previous trip from the All Trips tab in the navigation drawer.

Try it and find out how well you drive.

  8. A home based agent is a person that works from home (usually in a home office) collecting from or providing a customer with pertinent information. In this article, I am
    not going to start telling you the numerous benefits
    of working from home. Some of them are true, but the way they
    are perceived by people is wrong.

    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices

    Cheers!

  16. Consequently, not all the New Jersey septic system owners have their container pumped
    as often as they should. Instead of, or in addition to, a solid wood paneled door you can install a screen door and enjoy a bug-free view of your yard (provided you've placed it right for privacy).
    It seems to have been a hard battle to overcome the uneasiness of consumers concerning using recycled paper in toilet tissue.
