    Has anyone else seen this:
    The Samsung Galaxy S Goes See-Through

    Another app I'd love to have, to rub in the face of my iphone friends!

    I've searched the XDA site & there are only port requests so far . . .

    Be careful rubbing it in their faces since they already have it :) Still a neat concept, but I think I would get a headache using it.

    I wasn't aware that the iphone had an app like this

    Who said anything about texting & driving? Sure it's called "Road SMS" which IS suggestive.
    I mean I can see how an irresponsible dim-witted person might think, "hey, now I can hold my phone above the dash, text & still drive . . ."
    Yes, that thought process would be asinine, but there is absolutely nothing asinine about wanting to show off the app or use it while walking around & avoiding obstacles.

    The NAME of the App says "Texting and Driving"!

    I'm not saying it isn't a cool app but to call it ROAD SMS I'm sure will give a lot of people the idea of using it while driving.

    Thanks for the link, but this one has several recent reviews stating that there is a camera orientation issue (including an incredible user).
    I couldn't find anything else similar using combinations of the following words: Type, Walk, Augmented, text, Car, drive, Camera, etc

    I don't text and drive. I have a hard enough time not spilling my beer.

    I remember reading about a guy who used the iPhone app while driving. He still got into several accidents because, hey, you're still not paying enough attention to the road.
