When smartphone’s battery dies and your significant other is attempting to reach you, it can be taken you’re ignoring them.

This common situation is what inspired an app developer to create a useful process for providing status updates to those important folks in your life.

The app, which is called Status, is unlike other methods because it does a lot of the work for you automatically.

Using the motion sensors in your phone along with calendar information, it can automatically update others that you're driving, are still at work, sitting at home, in a meeting, currently unreachable and most importantly lets them know when your battery is low.

Parents of teenagers may find this app very useful so they'll know not to try contacting a child if they’re driving, for example.

Knowing someone’s status before trying to reach out to them can save both of you lots of anxiety.
