MADISON, NJ - Rider Revenge, the technology platform to reduce distracted driving, has announced the launch of their app’s prototype on Apple’s App Store. The launch comes on the heels of successfully closing the Company’s first round of crowd-funding.
‘’The launch of our prototype on the Apple Store is a significant development milestone for
our company,’’ said Peter Gallagher, Founder & CEO of Rider Revenge. ‘’During the last
two months, we have gained tremendous momentum. We closed our round of funding on
Kiva Zip with nearly 200 lenders. Then we finished development of our beta prototype of
the app. User feedback is helping us to shape and progress the app toward a full
commercial product later this year.’’
The app is built on the company’s geo-specific, time-dependent mapping technology,
called Crowd Spotting. The software collects the input from a high-volume number of
individual users, and then aggregates the output to identify trends and generate actionable
responses. For example, Rider Revenge, the free smartphone app for iPhones and iPads,
enables vehicle passengers and pedestrians to anonymously report when they see a
driver texting or otherwise distracted behind the wheel. Parents, fleet managers and local
communities will all benefit from knowing where and when these dangerous driving
behaviors are taking place. In addition, the Company is developing a proprietary User
Interlock System to discourage drivers from using the app.
‘’Distracted driving is an especially serious risk to young drivers,’’ Gallagher said.
