Motorola Modality Services Updates

This week, another Motorola app got updated, this time it’s the Motorola Modality Services app. Basically what this app does is it helps your phone determine where your phone is. Whether it’s in your hand, pocket, on a table or in a car. So in theory, it should help with Motorola Assist. The update is available now on Google Play. Obviously it’s only available for the Moto X, DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx and DROID Mini.

This week’s Southwest Airlines app got a pretty big update. The update includes mobile boarding passes for 24 airports, as well as some tweaks to the app. But obviously the mobile boarding passes are what we all care about. Being able to just whip out your phone to show your boarding pass is just plain awesome and can save so much time as well.
