Motorola launches battery-saving app
Dubai, February 1, 2012
Motorola Mobility has created a new app for its Razr smartphone, which lets users create automated tasks and improve battery performance by up to 30 per cent.
Users can either take direct control by configuring the Smart Actions app to set specific rules and/or wait for prompts based on recurring behaviors.
For example, the Low Battery Saver action will pay attention to how much charge your battery has and change settings to conserve what’s left. At 40 per cent power, it can dim the display and at 30 per cent it can slow down data usage. The user picks the points and the changes.
Smart Actions can also make changes based on where the use is located. These location-based actions are associated with Wi-Fi connections and will only be performed when those networks are detected. Arriving at one’s office could, for example, prompt putting one’s ringer on silent.
“Smart Actions is constantly evolving and adapting to the lives of our customers, automating tasks that would normally require fiddly and repeated manual intervention, and freeing up time that can be better spent enjoying the smartphone experience and going about day-to-day routines. With SmartActions, you can set it and forget it,” said Raed Hafez, managing director for Motorola Mobility, Middle East and Africa. – TradeArabia News Service
