Location reminders are new in iOS 5 but there are better around

in Utilities (E)

[prMac.com] Lund, Sweden - ocoomo today is please to announce the updated Place Clock 2.1.0, for iOS devices. One of the new features in iOS 5 are reminders that has the option to remind you when you arrive at or depart from a specified location. These work fine but the choice of locations are limited and there are no way to configure or fine tune the reminders. Apps with location/place based reminders are however nothing new in the app store and one of the best is Place Clock, an app developed by a company called ocoomo.

Place Clock is designed as an improved version iPhone's clock app that allow you to create place and time based alarms side by side. The app has recently been updated to version 2.0 and new to this version are stopwatches and timers that also can be associated to a location. This allows you to for example set up a stopwatch on your work or gym and see how much time you spend there day for day as long as the stopwatch is running.

Another nice feature is that you can set location rules on time alarms so that the they will only sound if you are at or not at a place of your choice. You can for example use this to set different wake up times in the morning based on if you sleep at your own home or at say your girlfriends home. In the same way you can set time rules on location alarms. For example you can set an alarm to get a reminder when you get close to a certain shop but only if it's a week day during opening hours.

Place Clock has a well organised user interface that really looks and feels like a plus-version standard clock app.
