typenwalkContinue walking and texting with ease complete with new fearless attitude thanks to “Type-n-Walk”. Anyone with a phone that has sent even one text message while on the move knows the dangers that present themselves when engaged in a riveting text based conversation whilst on the move. Thanks to the ingenious heads behind Type-n-Walk, worries of near death experiences can now be a thing of the past.

The concept and operation of the app is easy. Whenever you want to send a text, email, Facebook message, etc., fire up TnW and type away. (Basically, any app that is compatible with copy/paste will work with Type-n-Walk.) The app will use the camera feed from your iPhone’s camera (sorry no iPod Touch support) and display it onscreen while also overlaying the screen with the text you type. It doesn’t seem like much, but in practice it works and works well. The only thing that would improve this app is if you could specify and actually send out, receive, and read messages within the app itself. That however is a problem that only Apple can fix.

Some individuals may see this app and become incensed, claiming how the technologically epic minds of this generation are becoming robots. Well, you know what? I actually like robots. So there! Although, now that you can watch where you’re going and text, you excuse for how you walked into that wall, struck that old lady, or got hit by that car can no longer be blamed on the mere fact that “you didn’t see it/them”.

Overall, $0.99 is more than reasonable for an app that is as useful as TnW wouldn’t you say? In passing, I’ll leave off with a few words of wisdom: Take a few seconds to actually put the phone down while crossing the street. Common sense folks, common sense.
