Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - You're running late and you're meeting someone. You're in the middle of a conversation. You're in the middle of nowhere… And your phone dies.

You can instantly let your friends and family know you'll be out of contact - because there's an app for that.

If you're one of the many who've become dependent on a smart phone, you've no doubt had those moments of panic: Your battery is about to die and you'll be out of touch with the world. And it always happens at the most inconvenient time.

The Last Message App can help.

The free android app sends one final text, email, Facebook message or tweet before you lose power.

The way the app works: You set it up with and what friends and family you want notified and how to notify them when your phone goes kaput, so they'll know you'll be out of contact.

You decide what battery level constitutes low, and when your phone hits that percentage, the app sends your customized message; taking just a little of the stress out of being incommunicado.

You can set up last message to have it automatically turn on certain days and times.
