Last Message: the answer to dying phones
One of the problems with being so dependent on electronics – in order to communicate with others and run your business – is that you almost have to be near a source of electricity all the time. Otherwise, your phone will die at the most inconvenient moment, which could be in the middle of a business call or while you’re replying to an important, time-sensitive email. And if you’re on the go, it could be hours before you can have a chance to recharge your phone and finish your conversation. If you have an Android, there is an app for that.
Last Message is a free download and runs in the background, but it’s also easy to access, navigate, and update. It will monitor your battery life and send a Tweet, Facebook message, text, or email to your chosen contacts. This message is completely customizable, but it will notify them that your phone has lost power and you’ll get back to them soon. You can also choose at what percentage of battery life the message is sent and to whom. It’s simple and convenient.
Last Message helpful in a pinch
While you may not need to use this every day, as you’re probably always close to a computer or a wall plug, it can come in handy when you’re traveling or at conferences. It seems that the Last Message app will be sent to those you specify when you set up the app. However, that doesn’t mean the person you were talking to when your phone died will be notified, unless they are on the list, too, of course. So, this app is just notify those you speak with and interact with most, the ones that will be worried or agitated if you don’t respond to them or take their calls.
Last Message is great to keep your assistant, business partner, or your spouse in the loop when you need it the most. Consider it a just-in-case app, but it’s one that can save those you’re closest with a lot of uncertainty if you’re usually attached to your phone.
