Proximity Alert

Proximity Alert


Location based alarm system for your device.

Here's what you can do with this app:
- Remind yourself to wake up when you get near your destination while taking public transportation
- Call a phone-based remote garage opener as you drive up to your house.
- Warn yourself about known traffic cameras and likely speed traps.
- Download today's agenda as you approach work.
- Warn yourself when you have wandered within a kilometer of your crazy ex-spouse's house.
- Send text messages to your friends when you arrive.

Usage Hints:
- GPS location reduces your battery life. When the phone is asleep, it will check for location every 4 minutes to conserve battery.
- Long press on the map to place or move an alarm.
- Use the Geocode Address button to try to find GPS coordinates for your alarm.

What each permission is for:
Internet - Map data
Fine Location - Triggering alarms.
Vibrate - Vibrates the phone.
Boot - Loads alerts on boot.
Phone State - Lowers the alarm volume if you are in the middle of a phone call.
Disable Keyguard & Wake Lock - For making the alarm show up when triggered but the phone is asleep/locked.
Call Phone - Call a phone number.
Write External Storage - Downloaded files will be written to your download directory on your external storage.

Works flawlessly. Use it to wake up when my train gets to the station. And no ads or spam! I'd give the guy $ for it if I could.

Worthless Galaxy S4. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't. I set an alarm about a mile away, the alarm would sound as soon as I enabled it. Another alarm sounded as I plugged the phone into the charger at night, over a mile away, after being set for hours, and having been much closer earlier than now, when it went off. The alarm sometimes goes off miles after I pass a point.

Just what I'm looking for! But, it's not working after i left to other app. It should be always working in the background. A widget for on/off feature would be much useful. Almost perfect ๐Ÿ‘

Not available on all devices! I am quite pleased with this on my phone. However, I discovered that this is not available on my tablet, Samsung Galaxy S. If it is supported as well, I will change to 5 stars.

Could be better Would have been more useful if it can speak a custom notification using TTS.
