Remindify is an all new smartphone app that uses user location to manage and trigger reminders. In this way it aims to change how reminders are perceived and used.
Reminders are used every day to help people remember to perform a task at future time or an appropriate place. Common methods for reminding are carefully set alarms, sticky-notes, to-do lists and electronic calendars. Unfortunately, these existing methods often lack the ability to trigger reminders at an appropriate place.
Scenario 1 : A grocery list reminder is more helpful while passing the supermarket en route home from work rather than after getting home.
Scenario 2 : You want to get reminded of visiting a health center whenever you leave your home or office.
With the capability of using location to trigger reminders scenarios are infinite. It is a valuable piece of context that can improve the way people use reminders.
A user can choose to set a reminder or a bookmark at any point on the map. A reminder defines a reminder radius. Remindify uses user GPS information to track position and triggers a notification whenever user enters the reminder radius..
If you are tired and fed up of missing out on important tasks, use a more sophisticated Location Based approach to set reminders.
