With the launch of Moto E, Motorola also announced the Motorola Alert app, which came as a pre-embedded app on the device. The app now appears as available on the Google Play Store for other smartphones, but few users have been able to download the app so far.
In Brazil, Motorola Alert came pre-shipped on Moto E and allows users to share their location with any of their contacts. Which is very useful for when you're expecting someone or to let you know when you've arrived somewhere.
Simple use just activate the phone alert and it will start sending periodic notifications with your location to the people you have chosen. In addition, you can also use the app to define locations such as home, work, or school, so if you have a need to enter your location, the app automatically notifies the people you choose when you leave or arrive at a location.
Motorola Alert is not an application I'd use a lot, but it's nice to know that if you're in a risky situation, you can count on the software.
The funny thing about this is that Motorola Alert already appears as available for free download from the Play Store, but no users have yet confirmed that it was able to download the app. It seems to be compatible with any Android smartphone, whether manufactured by Motorola or not. Thus, it is still exclusive to the newest owners of Moto E.
