[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Snowman today is pleased to announce the release of Checkmark 1.0.1, a reminder application for iPhone that lets users set location-based and time-based reminders in seconds. Checkmark is available in the App Store today for just 99 cents for a limited time only. The app has received much acclaim after only one day of availability in the App Store:
* "Checkmark is both a more advanced version of Reminders, while also somehow managing to be easier to use." - TechCrunch
* "Checkmark is a brilliant to-do app." - Lifehacker
* "Checkmark is what Reminders should have been." - The Next Web
* "It's so simple." - Gizmodo
Checkmark is the fastest way to remind yourself of all the things you have to do in your busy life, such as:
* Do laundry when you get home
* Pick up milk next time you're at the grocery store
* Never miss your bus stop if you fall asleep
* Call your wife when you leave work
* Remember to pick up a cake at 3 pm tomorrow
* Make a haircut appointment on Tuesday at 10 am
As Cult of Mac mentioned, "Checkmark is the reminders app Apple should have made.", Checkmark goes above and beyond Apple's Reminders application by adding these powerful features:
Checkmark's timer feature lets you delay a location-based reminder so that it goes off when you're ready (e.g. 15 minutes after arriving home).
Checkmark shows you a list of everything you have to do, grouped by location and displayed in order of distance from your current location. When you have some idle time you can see what's around you and get things done.
Choose a Geo-fence Radius for Each Location:
When you add a new location to Checkmark you can choose a specific radius distance for each location. For example, this lets you select a small radius for places in the city that might be nearby each other (for example the grocery store and the bank that's across the street).
You can set a larger radius for places like a shopping mall so that reminders go off no matter which part of the mall you're in - or for places that you'd like a reminder for when you're further away, like an upcoming bus stop.
Add Locations from Map:
Add location-based reminders for places that aren't in your contact list or your current location by searching a map to find them.
Create Reminders in Only 3 Steps:
Create location-based reminders in only 3-steps, compared to 11 in Apple's Reminders app. Create time-based reminders in only 3-steps, compared to 8 in Apple's Reminders app.
* iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 3/4G iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 3.4 MB
Pricing and Availability:
For a limited time only, Checkmark 1.0.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
