[prMac.com] Boise, Idaho - AppKnack, LLC today is pleased to announce that its newly updated green driving application, EcoDriverEd (TM), for the iPhone and iPod touch, is now available on Apple's App Store. This unique iPhone app is one of the first such applications to allow a user to learn how to drive more economically without resorting to dangerous driving tactics.
Part of a recent trend in driving is to make slight adjustments to driving behavior that result in fuel conservation and dramatic cost savings. Not everyone can go out and buy a hybrid vehicle immediately, but they can do their part by learning to drive green with their existing car. EcoDriverEd helps you learn techniques of acceleration, deceleration, smoothness, and speed with audible feedback.
AppKnack founder Dan Axtman, commented "We're very excited to introduce this updated version of EcoDriverEd to the worldwide driving community. EcoDriverEd allows you to quickly learn how your driving habits are impacting your use of gasoline. EcoDriverEd gives you immediate report cards at the end of each drive so you can track your progress. Even moderate EcoDriving can reduce fuel consumption by 15%, saving a typical driver $200 per year and reducing CO2 emissions by 1200 pounds. The EcoDriverEd app pays for itself within a few trips to the store!"
iPhone and iPod touch users now have a simple yet powerful driving tool at their disposal to help learn new driving habits. Within a few days any driver can learn new and safe driving techniques that will have both a personal and environmental impact.

* No installation or expensive additional equipment required
