Geo Bookmark (Dashclock)

Geo Bookmark (Dashclock)


Geo Bookmark is a homescreen widget and a dashclock extension that allows you to quickly record your current whereabouts for later review with a single button press. Some use cases include:


Use case: You are driving down the road, something catches your attention, but you cannot pull over to
investigate and you cannot savely text yourself a reminder.

Use case: You work "door to door" (e.g. pizza delivery, bike courier) and want to log your route.

Use case: You are on vacation and you want to mark a tourist attraction, a restaurant or a meeting point
for returning to later.


Bookmarks are placed on the homescreen. In order to view a bookmark, you need to have a suitable maps application installed as well (e.g. Google Maps or OSMAnd~). Please note that in order to conserve battery life, Geo Bookmark will only try to get a location when you request it. GPS will be tried first. If no fix can be determined within 40 seconds, the system will be asked if there is a "last known position". On a recently booted device, it may be nescessary to initialize the location service with a more patient location tracking app.

Bookmarks are color coded. A blue symbol indicates a GPS derived location. A red symbol indicates that the "last known position" was used and the bookmark should be double checked.


NOTE: By design, the user interface is kept minimal. There is (and will be) no support for (re-)naming bookmarks. If that functionality is needed, the suggested solution is to use homescreen folders which can be labeled. On Android 4.x, creating a folder as as easy as dragging two icons on top of each other. "Photo Bookmark" is an ideal companion app for creating the second icon.

Recent changes:
- When used as a dashclock extension: don't show up as "ProxyActivity" in the recent tasks list.
- Replaced the bookmark icon.
- More instructive notification in case the system is unintialized.
