State Farm Insurance Company will release an Android widget aimed at combating the problem of distracted driving on Monday, Aug. 23. The “On the Move” widget allows Android smartphone users to compose and preload customized messages that can be sent as automated responses to incoming text messages.

With the service, instead of reading and responding to text messages while driving or otherwise occupied, smartphone users can activate the service and let the widget respond for them. The service is free to anyone with an Android smartphone as part of State Farm’s updated Pocket Agent for Android application.
