State Farm might be an insurance company that like any other preys on the misfortunes of everyday people to make a huge profit, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have your safety as an interest. Take the inclusion of a new “On the Move” widget in the latest version of their Pocket Agent app for example. While they aren’t to first to devise an app or widget that will auto-respond to texts in various situations, it certainly does a pretty good job. Of course the aim is to get you to leave your phone alone while in transit, allowing a pre-set message to answer for you, but you could get some other uses out of it too, say when you are in the movies or at a meeting.
