The Cobra JoyRide is a simple mobile accessory that is essentially a charger but with a few cool features up its sleeve. That’s because when you connect it to your Android phone, your smartphone will recognize the JoyRide and it will automatically download the JoyRide application from Google Play onto the device. But once the app is installed, the app lets users configure what they want their phone to do when plugged into the car charger. For instance, the JoyRide app can automatically launch any app on your phone such as music applications.

You can also set the Cobra JoyRide to automatically reply to text messages and phone calls while driving, hence minimizing the risk of accidents on the road. Moreover, it has a physical button which is used to control the phone. Users can set the button on the car charger to cycle through a list of apps, send messages to friends, or even call them. You can assign up to four different commands to the single tap, double tap, triple tap, and tap and hold commands. The Cobra JoyRide was recently launched at the CTIA 2012 this week. You can get this cool device together with those amazing features for $40.
