Trivandrum: Livares Technologies, a start-up company based in Technopark has launched an Android app called ‘PhoneAway’ that enables users to access their mobile phones remotely. By using the application, users can access contents in their phone from another mobile phone or PC.
The application can be downloaded for free from Google Play. After installing the application in the user’s Smartphone, user has to register an alternative mobile phone number in the app – which could be used to get details from the original phone. Apart from this, an appropriate communication channel (SMS, Email, or both) should also be selected so as to facilitate communication.
Once installed, PhoneAway will be running in the background, on the original Smartphone. Users can start controlling the phone remotely, by giving a specified number of missed-calls (one or more as defined by the user) or by sending a specific SMS command to the phone, complete with a user-defined passcode for authentication. This will ‘activate’ the app and internet connectivity will be switched on (using WiFi or GPRS/3G) automatically, (if required), so as to facilitate communication.
One of its key features is that users can fetch the phone’s call log remotely to their email address or by text message to alternate mobile phone. Additionally, users can also search and find contacts stored in the phone. Users even have the facility to locate misplaced phones in silent mode by employing the ‘remote-ringer’ capability whereby users can make the phone ring, even if it is in silent mode. Another major feature of the app is its ability to pin-point the phone’s location using the phone’s GPS, and send it to the user, to help users locate the mobile phone if it is lost.
“The PhoneAway app will definitely act as a good friend to the user while they are on the move. The utility app offers a simple yet feature rich experience for users to access their phones remotely. Thus PhoneAway keeps you in touch with your phone even if it’s not in your hands. We are passionate about innovating something. For us innovation means finding gaps and customer issues in the current market then addressing those issues,” said Jaseel Abdul Rafeek, Chief Innovation Officer, Livares.
