It was just a month ago when I had lunch with an android user who showed me a great app where he could set reminders based on location. I searched for a similar app within app store, but I couldn’t find anyone good enough.
While I was looking i came across an article that were describing the same feature, in a native iphone app. Bingo!
So, what is this feature all about? For instance, you can set a reminder when you enter a store, and the have your shopping list right in front of you when you enter. Launch a specific reminder when your phone is connected to your car, call home when you leave work and so on. It may sound like a small thing, but actually it helps me a lot every day.
So how do you use it?
Start “Reminders”, (“Påminnelser” is the Swedish word for that)
Click on the + sign, and write your reminder – in this case “Pick up dry cleaning”
Then, click on the small (i) sign
In the third row you will find “Remind me on a specific location” (Påminn mig på en plats). Toggle that button, and “location” will appear. Click it.
Now you’ll find a number of suggestions on where you want to be reminded. You can choose to be reminded when you enter, or when you’re leaving.
I hope you find it as useful as I do! A great feature, not so well-known in iOS.
