Set Alarms, Create To-Do lists based on your Location. Top Rated Location Based Reminder Application
** Talking alarms that speak your reminders ** Integrated To-Do List ** Send SMS when you reach a location ** Unique power optimized algorithm ** Multiple locations per reminder **
LocationMinder allows you to set reminder alarms that trigger based on a location. It goes far beyond the capability of many location based reminder applications with unique features such as talking alarms and fine control over reminder alerts. LocationMinder also uses an advanced monitoring technique that reduces power consumption, improves accuracy, and enables very small reminder alert distances.
"LocationMinder is the best location based reminder application available. It is the only one I have tested that does not use up my battery life." - L. Thomas, App Review
"It's saved me gallons and gallons of gas. No more 'honey I forgot to stop by publix on the way home'. This app is why I have an iPhone." - M. Clark
* Multiple reminder actions can be added to each location. You can create a checklist of items to do when you arrive at the designated location.
* Multiple locations per reminder. For example, you can have a reminder to buy something from a store and include all the nearby store locations.
* Integrated text-to-speech that translates your reminder text into speech. When you reach the location, you will hear your reminder spoken to you!
* Automatically send an SMS text message when you reach or leave a reminder location. Use this to automatically send a message to someone important that you are near their location or have left. (Google Voice required)
* Alert distances down to 500ft.
* Custom Alert Tones, repeating alarms, "Don't alert before this date", "Don't alert before this time / after this time"
* Alarm on Entering or Exiting a Location
* Snooze and Skip Reminder Alarms
* Master On/Off monitoring switch to easily turn off monitoring when not needed
* Reminders are delivered regardless if the application is active or running in the background.
* Integrated address and business location search. For example, you can search for "Starbucks" to find the location to set for the reminder.
* Maintains a history of old reminders that can be easily reactivated for future use. You can also easily create new from previous locations. This allows you to have multiple reminders for the same location, each with it's own unique settings.
* Simple and clean interface that is intuitive to use.
With LocationMinder, you can quickly and easily set reminders. With its combination of push notifications and advanced location monitoring technology, you can set the reminder and then forget about it. When you arrive at the area in the future, the reminder will be delivered even if your busy playing the latest game on your iPhone.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 3.2
New feature: Multiple locations per reminder
Love this app! Reliable and works in background.
I just purchased, reviewed, and deleted a couple apps meant to tell give you a pop-up reminder when you arrive at a given location. The first one crashed each time I tried to add a location from my contacts. The second one never notified me when I was within the specified range of the location I programmed into it. This app, however, works both when opens and when closed, reliably sending sound and vibration notification and even sends a notification to my Pebble Smartwatch. I also like how it uses natural-sounding speech to say, "You have arrived at 'home.' Remember to 'mail letter.'" (Items in single quotes are whatever you named them). Hope this review helps.
Do you ever get to busy and forget?
This is a real handy tool. As a service electrician I get emails, call, and texts from my customers with repairs to do. With this app I can make a location and put these tasks to the location and check them off as I get to them. You can also put in multiple places which I use for when I need parts from the wholesale houses. I even added one for my local grocery stores and check off items as I drop them in the cart. Very customizable.
Poor execution, lack of features
I needed an app to send reminder when I'm near a location on certain days.. How do you do that.. Not with this app.. It was not clear in the description if I could do that.. Seems like an obvious thing to have..be able to set days when I need the reminder.. Say I'm on the way home I need to be reminded just today to pick something up.. I wish this app could do that..
