From the “I can’t part with my phone even for an instant” department comes an app that promises to let you keep your eyes on your iPhone at all times, even while you’re walking around in public.
AppScout reports that Type While Walking allows you to compose SMS messages, e-mails, and other documents while on the move, and the app uses your iPhone’s camera to create a live background on your iPhone’s screen so you see what’s in front of you while you type.
The app makes your iPhone work like a heads-up display, with white text on top of the view through your camera’s lens.
This way you can keep walking, type your e-mail or text message, and still see the car that’s headed towards you before you step out onto the street.
