Have you heard about Drivetime? Maybe a friend mentioned it to you, but it sounded too good to be true. Drivetime is the first game ever that you can play while you drive! It’s great news for people who commute long hours to work every day.
If you’re concerned about safety, don’t worry. The safety of drivers and passengers was the developer’s number one priority when making this app. You can play the game and control the app using your voice. It won’t affect your driving, and the time will go by faster.
What Is Drivetime?
Do you remember playing quiz and word games with your siblings during long rides when you were kids? These games were not only entertaining, but they helped you improve your general knowledge and critical thinking. Your parents were also able to participate even though they were driving.
Trivia games aren’t distracting because research shows that we use different parts of the brain for driving and for answering the questions. With that in mind, Drivetime developers have decided to create the first game for drivers.
Drivetime is a hands-free app that allows full voice control. You’ll feel as if you were driving with a good friend who was asking you interesting questions. However, Drivetime is not pure entertainment, as it’s your daily dose of general knowledge as well.
The average American spends more than one hour a day commuting. So, this app aims at people who are tired of the same songs and shows on the radio. It offers a perfect combination of entertainment and intellectual stimulation.
How to Play?
Drivetime is a very intuitive app, and you’ll soon learn how to use it. You’ll have to touch your phone only once – when you want to enter the game and tap Play. You should do that when you get in the car, and before you start driving. From that point on, you can control everything with your voice.
One Drivetime session lasts around 30 minutes. The quiz consists of three parts (three different topics), and each has seven questions. Topics can include everything from history, geography, movies, etc.
With every question, you’ll get three answers. All you have to do is listen to answers and then say A, B, or C. The app will then tell you whether you got the right or wrong answer.
The questions are usually about general knowledge or current events. You may get asked things such as: Who won the Academy Award for Best Actor last month? The answers typically consist of one or two words, and you just have to say them out loud.
One other game that many drivers love is True or False. You’ll hear a statement, such as “Chicago is the capital of Illinois,” and you have to say whether that is true or false. Tricky questions involving USA capitals are quite popular, and they can help you activate your knowledge from school.
Compete with Other Drivers
The app’s developers also thought about drivers with a competitive spirit. You can challenge your friends who are commuting at the same time as you. You can ask them to join and see who has better general knowledge.
You can also compete with fellow drivers from all across the state. Anyone who is currently using the app can participate.
The daily 30-minute trivia game is free, and all you have to do is sign in and create your profile. However, if you’d like to access unlimited premium games, you have several subscription options at your disposal. The monthly fee is currently $7.99. Of course, if you decide to pay for the entire year, you’ll get a discount, and you’ll have to pay only $49.99.
The developers of Drivetime noted that many drivers feel lonely and isolated while commuting and traveling alone. Many people don’t have time for fun after work because they have to drive long hours home. This app is fun, and many users stated that they feel much better after a couple of days of using it.
Drivers don’t feel as if they’ve wasted their time. Instead, they feel proud of themselves for doing something good for their brain and learning new things. Once when you start working full time, there’s not enough time to study and explore. Drivetime might be your chance!
Uber drivers often use the app in between the rides. The time that they would previously spend listening to news they’ve already heard, they’re now using in a better and more productive way.
Of course, you can use this app whenever you want. It has a specially designed Passenger mode, and you can play even if you are on a bus or metro.
Safety + Fun
Drivetime is a unique app that takes care of its users while it also entertains them. Its safety standards are very high, and you can use it without worries. It’s a perfect combination of fun and educational elements, and it’s probably one of the best things you can do while you’re driving.
