I am so well endowed I am afraid this app will mistake my personal porn shot on my phone as illegal professional porn.

Perhaps you need to upgrade to a tablet.

What if your dog doesn't speak Thai?

I would take my chances with a conventional licence still being intact after an accident, phone could be damaged.

This sounds interesting, a driving licence on your phone that tracks your every movement.

If that avoids reporting to immigration every time I leave the island, I am all in favor.

Good idea, they could forget about the TM30 nonsense.

I can see what's going to happen here, police check your license after accident, take the phone to the station to take picture or something and you have to go to the station next day or so to collect your phone. Oh, we sorry sir your phone go missing or or or.

i will stick to carrying my plastice one.

No need for the sarky remarks, I was asking a perfectly valid question.
So you download the app onto your phone if you can. Then do you, the licence holder input the required data, or does the DLT (Hairy Cornflake ! ) send the info, via the internet, to your app. 
Then if the police need to see your digital licence, must you go on-line again, or is it stored in your phone.
 

You scan the QR code on the rear of the licence. If you don’t have a QR code then you can’t use the app.

Yes, I imagine being able to show your license after an accident would be useful. 

If you are unconscious how will they know it is on your phone and how will they unlock it?

I hope the plastic version will still be issued. The Thai driving licence can be used to drive abroad.

 A good idea in some ways technology replacing the need for having things mailed out etc.  Question is, can this country manage the system and all the data?

What really is being gained?  

Anyone aware of similar systems in use in other countries.

Thailand needs to look at it's priorities.
