LocationAlarm: GPS Arrival Alert

LocationAlarm: GPS Arrival Alert



The best ever alarm has arrived! "Location Alarm" is so useful it's almost like a life partner! The app uses the iPhone's GPS to let you know when you have arrived near to your destination, and plays an alarm to let you know.

From now on, there'll be no more "I was too absorbed in my game and I missed my stop!" or "I dozed off and missed my stop!"

It is perfectly compatible with iOS multitasking, so even if you're in sleep or lock mode, the alarm can be used reliably.

As the alarm is perfectly compatible with the iPhone's silent mode, there's no need to be worried about bothering people around you - your phone will produce a vibrating alarm instead.

If you're using earphones (including Bluetooth) the alarm will not interfere with the iPod's play.

So you can doze off while listening to your favourite songs!

Set the location freely, using either "Map" by drag-and-dropping a pin, or with the search function by entering in the place name.

Naturally, you can set the message that comes up when you arrive to whatever text you like, so you can even use the alarm as a To-Do List!

This app is very easy to use. As soon as you launch it, you'll be able to use it intuitively. We've aimed for the ease-of-use of a native iOS application.

The last convenient feature is that, while using our app in the background, you can automatically adjust GPS accuracy depending on the distance, so you can reduce activity in order to minimize battery drain.

We're working on improvements every day so that you will enjoy using Location Alarm more and more in the future.

It works well!

The English in the description of this app is poorly written, but it is no reflection on its functionality. I have been using it for a few weeks on my train commute and it works really well. In the background, with music playing, or while playing game apps. However, there are a few minor quirks.
First, I need to set the distance to maximum (1 km) in order to have the alarm go of in time for my stop. I believe this is because, in order to save on power consumption, the gps "pings" periodically to see if you are within the set radius of your destination. If I set it any less than that, it will often go off when I sitting at the station, not giving me enough time to get off the train. But a 1 km setting is sufficient and will go off as we're approaching the station.
Second, it took a few runs to get it to work as described. I nearly gave up on it after the first try when the alarm didn't go off until I opened the app... There's some sort of burn in but it is working wonderfully since about the second or third try. No more missed stops while playing!

Pretty good and simple app

I really like this one, it's kinda simple and quite good app, the things that I would like to have is longer radius, I ride in an Express Transit and it's quite fast and next thing you know it enter my set radius (set the longest 1 km) and it alarm and I'm still half awake and I'm already at my stop, would be nice to have 2 and 3 km radius :). And one more, would be nice to bump the alarm to 9 or maybe even 12. Also, not really important but other location arrival alert app had email or SMS notification, would be nice to get that one too.
