One of the most underrated features of the Moto X, and the new DROID line on Verizon in general, is the Motorola Assist app that it comes bundled with. Essentially a slimmed-down version of Motorola’s Smart Actions, it allows your phone to react to you when you are driving, sleeping or in a meeting. The only downside is that Smart Actions is exclusive to Moto devices. Agent is an app that can do that and more, plus it is available for all Android devices.
Setting actions to happen based on contextual events is nothing new. Ask any of the Tasker app faithful how they have their phones set up to do perform set tasks without touching a single button, and they will tell you its the greatest app ever. The problem is, Tasker isn’t very user friendly, requiring users to navigate and operate through complicated settings menus. Agent is the opposite. Just turn an agent on, click a few operations that you want the app to fulfill, and Agent does the rest. Shutting Bluetooth off when the battery is low, silencing your phone for meetings or sleeping hours, and auto-responding when you are driving are just a few things Agent can do.
Agent is $1.99 in Google Play, but after using it the price is well worth it. The app offers a lot of functionality and makes it seamless to use at the same time. Hit the link below and get that phone working for you.
