Location Alert is a cutting-edge application that reminds you to perform tasks based upon your current location, rather than time. Often there are tasks to which you cannot specify a certain time, however, would like to be reminded when in a certain vicinity.

For instance, you don’t know when exactly you will leave work this evening, but whenever you do, and are crossing the grocery store on your way home, you want to be reminded to pick up milk. Location Alert to the rescue!

- Don't know what time you'll be crossing the science department, but need to remember to drop off that assignment whenever you do?

- Don't know what time you'll reach office but must remember to hand in that check to accounting?

- Need a reminder to pick up the DVD you left at Sam's house whenever you're in the vicinity next time?

- Want a reminder to pick up medicines when crossing the chemist today?

Maximize your day's efficiency by completing tasks in a timely manner and with the least amount of traveling.

Unlike any other location alarm applications, Location Alert uses the smartest algorithms to ensure the most efficient use of your device's battery while providing maximum accuracy. Any application that is in constant contact with GPS satellites (such as Maps or Navigation software) will drain your battery rapidly. Location Alert, however, allows one to use its capabilities as much as desired while barely affecting the device's battery power at all. Rather than contacting satellites every second, the application uses genius mathematical formulae (distance, speed, time) and historical data to gauge your location along with GPS, hence only using GPS when in close proximity to provide you the accuracy that is essential. The technology is undoubtedly the best in class.

Location Alert boasts some really cool additional features and the best part is that it's absolutely free with no limit on functionality. The Geo-Snooze feature allows you to snooze a Location Alarm (Geo-Alarm) until the radius, previously set to trigger an alarm, is exited and re-entered.

A Deadline Alarm feature is another one sure to boost efficiency. In the event that you set a location alarm and fear you may not cross the set location within the next few days but must complete the task by the following Friday by 6:15pm under any circumstances, you can set a deadline alarm for this time. Thereafter, if you do not cross the set location by that time, an alarm reminding you to perform this task will trigger either way!

Often one crosses certain geographic locations, streets, areas, etc., on a daily basis. However, even though one of these streets may be a regular on your location reminder list, you may only need to be reminded to do something here on certain days of the week. For example, you may cross the dry-cleaner's every single day, however, you would only like to be alerted to pick-up or drop-off items on Tuesday's and Friday's. Location Alert has you covered!

So say goodbye to your traditional organizer and start enjoying the power of a smarter technology that gets things done - on the go!

    The map lookup does not work. Put in address and hit the magnifying glass icon and either nothing happens or the wrong location is displayed on the map. Deleting this app now..

    Even though I left it running in the background, it didn't give me alerts unless I opened its window when I was at the location, which defeats the purpose.

    Alarm didn't go off until I remembered on my own, and I opened the app. Then the alarm went off 3 times in a row, even though I dismissed it. Junk.
