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.

Close Needs a more intuitive interface with a more simplified way of imputing and locking in locations manually

Great app. When I first tried the app it didn't seem to work. However it is now working great. I use the app to log the days I'm working at set locations. I could never seem to remember to log my time at each location. Now as I approach a set location I get an alert and a text message. I reply to the text message with information I need to log. I have another app that dumps text messages to a csv file that I import into excel. Now I have dates times and notes/information I need. Great app.

Probably needs expensive data to function Good app but intermittent response to alarms. Reason being that Gps checks for locations every 4 minutes which is a very long time period and in a moving vehicle 4 minute intervals almost always allows a gps fix to be missed. This program needs to be fine tuned. Basically useless.

Perhaps I'm missing somethign I have maps and alarm tab, but can't seem to add an alarm no matter what I do. There is NO menu option to add

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.
