Location-Based Reminders from GeoTask

Maybe you want to be reminded to grab a coffee when you get to the office or make sure to check into the library when you’re on campus. The usefulness and practicality of being notified by your Android device based on where you are is brilliant in concept and idea, and this is exactly what GeoTask presents.

Developed by XDA Forum Member PariDevelopers, GeoTask allows users to set specific locations and a radius of up to 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) to trigger preset notifications. Creating new notifications is relatively straightforward. Selecting the ‘new task’ option in the app brings up a new screen where users can input the name of the notification and a description of the reminder. An expiration date for the reminder can also be set.  The app then uses either your device’s GPS to locate and display the nearby surroundings with Google Maps , also allowing users to search for particular locations. Once you’ve entered the set vicinity or location, the app will then trigger a tone and notification in the slide-down notification area.

GeoTask can be extremely useful in so many different scenarios and occasions, which is why GeoTask may find itself to be an invaluable app for many. Available for free in the Play store in English, Italian, French, and Spanish, make sure to visit the original thread for more details.
