Motorola Intros Safety App for Moto E Called Moto Alert
Motorola recently made a new application available to its smartphones called Moto Alert. The idea behind Moto Alert is to allow users to quickly send alerts to people to provide basic "I'm OK" messages. For example, the app can be set to send periodic notifications with the user's location data so people know where the user is and can act if necessary. The app supports distinct locations, such as home, work, and school, and can be set to automatically fire off messages to loved ones when the user departs or arrive at those locations. The recipient does not need to have Moto Alert installed in order to receive the notifications. Motorola envisions the app as a useful (and free) tool for parents to keep tabs on their children or their elders. Moto Alert is exclusively available to the Moto E at launch, but will eventually be made available to the Moto X and Moto G.
