    Hi.
    On my iphone i had the 'Glass of Water' app, but i cant find it or anything similar on the Android Market.
    I'm a driving instructor and used the app loads during lessons to help my pupils to drive smoothly.
    The app mimics a full glass of water and would spill 'water' if the car was driven in a hard manner.
    Has anyone found anythig similar?

    The point to the app is to encourage smooth driving.
    Visually water falls out of a glass as you drive along. Keeps a log of your driving style, so promoting good driving.
    Has nothing to do with drinking water.....

    Shouldn't student drivers be looking at the road?

    In principle that could work well. Even keeping eyes on the road!
    Problem is: Bubble level apps are too precise, too sensitive for this application. No margin for error at all.

    He's training drivers! Not pilots! :D

    I wonder if one of the seismograph apps out there would do the trick? Students could be graded on the Richter scale. :D

    I'd guess those apps would be too sensitive, though.

    There is plenty of room for a bit of humor in a thread with a query such as the OP's. :D

    But let's keep things respectful toward all fellow members, please, so that we can leave the thread open. ;)

    I see "Car driving app: Smooth Drive" and "Drismo - Driving Skill Monitor" in the Market - not sure how well they would meet the OP's needs, but from their descriptions, they seem worth checking out. Try a Market search for "driving" - I might have missed some.

    Thanks for the suggestions, and have tried them both before posting. They are a bit rubbish really, Smooth Drive just gives you 100% score even if you drive rubbish.
    Drismo is similar to Smooth Driving and doesn't cut it.
    'Glass of Water' would record how well you did and pupils could 'compete' to drive as smoothly as me over the same roads. Pupils couldn't see the screen it was tilted away from them.
    The iphone had loads of apps to promote eco-driving, android market appears to have none.
