Walking Text App Lets You Walk While Texting

We can all admit to texting when we really should be paying attention to the world around us. Usually it doesn’t result in anything bad, but there is always that danger of walking into a wall or stepping on a Lego piece. There is now an app that helps out those wanting to text while walking.

The app is called Walking Text, and it was posted to the forums by XDA Forum Member nstrn. Walking Text is a very unique application, as it offers something you don’t see every day. It works by activating the camera, and overlaying this on the screen. It then allows you to send SMS messages while the camera is on via a transparent keyboard.

What’s the point, one may ask? Simply consult the image to see it. Users can keep an eye on their feet and where they’re stepping, without having to pause to send a text. Of course, most texters either point straight down or straight forward, so there is still a chance of walking into a wall or stepping on a Lego piece.
