Do you often get so busy that you forget to do certain jobs and tasks? If this is the case you should download Apple’s great Reminders app for creating prompts and to-do lists. What is even more useful about this app is that you can add location-based reminders that go off when you are near a certain place. For example, if you keep forgetting to buy stamps, your iPhone can remind you the next time you are within 500m of the post office.
If you are using iOS7 you can set these reminders up by going to the app and adding a new reminder or selecting an existing reminder that you would like to add a location to. Click “i” to edit the reminder and then click on the toggle bar next to “Remind me at a location” so it turns green. You can then click “Location” and enter in the address details. You can even set the radius of the alert and choose whether you want to receive the reminder when you arrive or leave the location. Don’t forget to press “Done” to save your changes.
If you are using iOS6 or earlier, when you are editing or adding a reminder you should swipe the toggle switch next to “At a Location” so it’s set to “On”. You can use your current location or set a different address under the “At a Location” option.
There are so many uses for this fantastic app from shopping lists that pop up when you get near a store to chore lists that pop up at home. Whatever you use it for, it should help you become much more productive in your day.
