We all know texting while driving is a really bad idea - and in many states it's illegal.

According to Bob Cleaves, "The statistics are pretty amazing. They say every five minutes, someone gets hurt or killed due to texting while driving."

Cleaves developed a new app called "Monkey Message" that allows you to text hands-free.

The app is different from Siri and other phones because it will read your text, transcribe your reply, confirm and send the message - all by your voice.

It also works in 20 different languages, including Spanish, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.

The app is 99 cents to download. Cleaves said, "I really think it will prevent a lot of accidents from happening." 

One note - the app is currently only available for Android devices.
