Location-based reminders with Geominder 04 Aug 2005

When we think reminders, we usually think times. Remind me at 6pm. Remind me on Monday. Don’t forget to remind me tomorrow! These are usually good enough, but what about location-based reminders? What about getting a reminder on your cell phone to “Buy orange juice” when you pass the market or “Call Bill” right when you get to your office?
An interesting new app for Symbian Series 60 phones called Geominder does just that. And it doesn’t require GPS, it uses cell tower IDs to determine where you are. Very clever and very useful. Great idea and well executed.
