Apps for July 5, 2012

Location Alarm1

Location Alarm will alert you whenever you are near a place you have told the app to remind you about either to go to the place or even get off at a bus stop. You can find a place that is nearby by using the interactive map or by searching which isn’t that reliable since it couldn’t find from a test search. Just set the place you want a reminder notification, and the app will do the rest. You can see all of your registered alarms in a complete list where it displays the alarm’s name and distance from your current location. You can set an alarm accuracy which will let you know your nearby registered location. You can set battery saving on which will not use up your device’s battery for checking your current location yet it does decrease in the apps accuracy in finding your location.
