Motorola's Touchless Control app just got an upgrade that'll make perpetually busy people happy. Now, the app can read notifications out loud when you ask "what's up?," which sounds especially useful for hectic morning commutes. If you're feeling extra dull and unfriendly, though, you can always tell it to "read notifications" instead. The new feature's fully available in English, Italian and Spanish, but it might be available in other languages in the future. Other than adding touchless access to notifications, the upgrade also enhances the app's ability to detect when you're done issuing commands.

If you just bought a Motorola phone, you may also want to check out the company's Migrate app, which just got the capability to make more customized content transfers. As a bonus, it now automatically imports SIM contacts to a Google account of your choice, though these new features will only work if you're moving from another Android device. Unfortunately, both apps are still only compatible with the Moto X, Droid Ultra, Mini and Maxx (Migrate's list includes Moto G, though), so everyone outside that exclusive circle will have to look for alternatives.
