    Excellent App. Would love to see categories and enabling reminder on time basis.

    I want its alarms to over ride my Bluetooth music though so I don't miss an alert.

    Works very well for me. I work in rotating shift and i fall asleep in bus on my way home, especially after night shift. I have missed my stop quite a few times before installing this app. But now it wakes me up before i reach my stop. Although it works without GPS, but for more reliability, turn ON the GPS when setting the alarm.

    nowadays, does not alert until you manually reopen app at destination.
    was perfect a time ago

    But the UI could use some modernisation. App is efficient and small plus works on most phones. Great way to remind yourself not to forget something when heading/leaving somewhere.
