- Send text messages as you reach to a specific location
- Connect a voice call when you are in a specific area*
- Create voice and text reminders to be triggered when you are in a particular place.
Why? Well, imagine this. You are leaving the office for a party but there is a twist. You forgot that you were supposed to call wife so that she can get ready by the time you reach home to pick her up. Now you can picture the situation. Can’t you? How great it would be if someone could send a message or connect a call automatically when you leave the office so that she knows about your schedule!
Let us consider another scenario. You need to pick something up from downtown which doesn’t require you to go immediately but it will be nice if someone could remind you when you were nearby. Sounds familiar?
Here we are with Location Alerts!
It is a simple yet handy tool which will simplify your life with alerts, reminders and activities which are automatically triggered based on your current location.
You can schedule a phone call or text message or a simple reminder (voice or text) and a location where you want this to trigger on. Next time when you reach in certain radius to that location, it will automatically pop a reminder or send message on your behalf. To make it all the more flexible, Location Alerts lets you set up the recurrence for individual days of week rather than limiting you to traditional daily or weekly kind of arrangement. Create activities with an easy and intuitive interface, set recurrence and that’s pretty much it.
There are endless examples and use cases where it will come handy and we don’t really need to tell you all of them. You schedule a text to be sent when you leave office so that your wife can prepare the dinner accordingly. You need to pick your wife from subway station after job so when she is one stop to the station, you will get a message. It goes one and on.
Location Alerts has a beautiful interface without compromising the simplicity we love our iPhones for. Please refer to detailed feature list to find out how Location Alerts can simplify your life.
Automate the recurring events and tasks right on your mobile phone. Schedule a Phone Call, Text Message or reminder for a date/time/location and simply get rid of organizers and diaries.
Think of it as your very own “private secretary
As you can understand from the name itself, it’s a handy little utility which lets you automate various tasks and activities like sending a text message, connect a call or reminders along with location based triggers. The idea is to simplify your life. Few simple steps and you will never hear “why can’t you call me before you leave the office”.
Not really… You can set up reminders with calendar and organizers but Location Alerts goes one step further and actually automates the task. Calendar won’t remind you when you are in the location where it has to be done. It will not send a message on your behalf, whereas Location Alerts will. See?
When we say, we want to simplify your life. We really mean it. It is awesomely simple to schedule an activity and you won’t believe how fast and easy it is. Just click on new tab, select the alert type and few additional settings and that’s it. We are done. Optionally you can set up recurring events by setting up frequency.
All scheduled activities are available right on your Home Tab. You can also edit or delete an event from there.
Yes, simple tap on the orange on/off LED on home screen where it shows all your scheduled events and you can turn it on/off from there.
It depends on the uses. For text message, that is actually desired but in any case, when creating an activity you can choose if you want to trigger it automatically or want the app to ask you first.
Future Scheduler works on Apple iOS and Google Android (RIM Blackberry coming soon) and is available in respective market places. Please follow the links in home section to get it now.
Yeah, but Big Apple is to blame for that. Unfortunately they do not allow third party apps to automatically send a message or email unless user confirms it. That is part of their security set up and we have to follow that. On Android, that’s not the case though.
Why should there be a limit when we don’t have that in default apps. So Nope… No limit as such.
We will love to hear from you. Please send your feedback via contact us and we will get back to you with in one business day.
