Location Alarm

Location Alarm


Afraid to miss some destinations? Set an alarm to remind you!

Ever missed your stop on public transport, because you were enjoying your music or books?

Ever forgot something to do along the way to somewhere?

Let this location alarm help you!

Set some destinations, and this alarm will remind you when you approach them. You can set notification in status bar, vibrate your phone, and choose an alarm sound you like, or even let voice remind you. Then, take the road!

Other Settings:
1) Satellite view of the map.
2) Traffic information on the map.
3) Center the map with your current location.
4) Show alarm range in map.
5) Notification in status bar.
6) Pop-up text of alarm
7) Vibration of the alarm.
8) Sound of the alarm.
9) Sound volume
10) Alarm repeat frequency
11) Voice of the alarm. (Refer to Google for supported TTS languages.)
12) Choice of different alarm sounds. (Only in Pro version)
13) Distance to destination to trigger the alarm.(Separate for each alarm in Pro version.)
14) Days to enable or disable the alarm.
15) Power option
16) Alarm list export and import. (Only in Pro version)

Note: Higher accuracy means higher performance, but shorter battery lasting time.

Pro version is ad free.

* Network location doesn't update in some devices sometimes. Two workarounds are possible: 1) reboot device. 2) manually stop the Google Services Framework, clear data and cache and reboot, which allows the device to use network location services again. We'll try to find other nicer solutions to fix the problem.

Recent changes:
Alarm range extended to 25 KM.
Text between alarm title and comment can be configured.

Get App This is a great app. The interface and function were very well designed. It's obvious that a lot of thought went into it. As a developer, my only suggestion would be, with regard to battery use, is to calculate distance, alarm radius, and minimum travel time to destination. Rounding down, for unknowns, the app could sleep for the duration since arrival at destination would be impossible. Of course, this wouldn't be applicable when actively viewing the map. Regardless, great app. Congrats!

Couldn't get it to work As far as I can tell, you can search for a location on a map, and you can create an alarm for your present location, but you can't create an alarm for a location you search for. So I'm on the train now, and the only alarms I can set are for the spots where the train has just been. The alarms ring as soon as I create them. What's the point? (Reply to Silvertech below:) I found the long-press trick after writing my review. Tapping on markers from search does nothing.

Didn't work on balanced power Glad I didn't trust it enough to go without a test run. Tried it with balanced power settings, thinking it would save some battery... Didn't work. Simple as that. Fix it or get rid of options that don't work and I would consider more stars.

Really works well! I was skeptical that the app was going to work but to my joy it does! Even with the GPS turned off it still works. And what is even better is the interface is easy to use. If you know how to use Google maps then you can use this. It's also nice to be able find a location on the map and long press to add and do a text search for the location - both work well. A great app and well worth 5 stars.
