Description

Proximo allows your iPhone to alert you with a notification based on your location (text + optional recorded audio).

SAMPLE USE CASES:

- Reminder to buy light bulbs the next time that you visit the hardware store.

- Travelling in an unfamiliar city and want to know when you are approaching your bus stop.

- Want to quickly capture where you have parked your car.

- Want to close your eyes on the train, but not miss your destination.

FEATURES:

- Minimises battery usage (see below).

- Text (multi-line) and/or recorded audio notifications. Record a snippet of audio for your notification, so that Proximo can literally announce "Don't forget to buy light bulbs" as you drive near the store (recording is painless and done from within Proximo).

- Locations are sorted based on how far they are from your current position.

- For each of your locations, as your position changes, Proximo continuously shows the current distance and estimated time to get there (if you are moving).

- Continuously shows your current speed (if you are moving) and GPS coordinates (including GPS accuracy).

- Uses Google's address parsing and lookup, so getting a pin on the map is easy (eg. Try "1 infinite loop, Cupertino", or "The White House").

- Draggable pins (so you can put a pin right on top of that bus stop).

- Proximo can be configured to use metric(meters) or imperial(feet) units of measurement.

- Each location can have its own radius of sensitivity (default is to alert you when within 100m of the location).

MINIMISES BATTERY USAGE:

- When running in the background, Proximo will save battery and only request the GPS hardware for continuous updates when you are relatively close to one of your locations (approx 4km / 2.5mi).

- Proximo will also request continuous location updates whenever it is visible (ie. not in the background) - so that the GUI is up to date.

- If you are not relatively close to one of your locations (and Proximo is running in the background), location updates are generally only received as the iPhone changes cell towers, greatly reducing battery usage.

NOTES:

- Proximo is not recommended for iPhone 3G(and prior) devices as those models don't support multitasking.

- Some of the GPS coordinates in the screenshots have been altered to protect the innocent.

- Apple requests that all applications using Location Background Mode be published with the following notice: "Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life."
