I wonder if you have any plan to add 'location based alarm' feature in future release..

Actually I'm quite happy with just the current version, and if you can add the location feature, it would be even better!

That feature is under development. But, it got sidelined for a little while due to getting the synchronization issues workedou out. Once I'm sure things are stable again I'll get back to work on it.

Any news on this yet? It's really the one feature that I'm waiting for in order to be able to purchase this seemingly otherwise excellent software!

 

Oh, and are the sync issues solved now? Of course I'd need a sync that works too...

Is the development of this software as dead as this forum?

So, there's no one at all following these forums then I take it...?

Sorry about the delay in my response. I've been without a working computer for the past few weeks. The CPU died on my computer so I've had to build a new machine as fast as possible.

 

I'm back up and running now and have a few updates planned.

 

The location-based reminders are currently being beta tested. The problem that I'm finding is that it just sucks the battery dry because when I set a location-based reminder using Android's proximity alerts it turns the GPS on and won't turn it back off until I remove the alert. Obviously this isn't something that I want to have happen.

 

So, for the upcoming update I have created a new "Nearby" view which will use the GPS/location system tied together with contexts to determine if there are any tasks that you can complete where you're at.

I'm using KitKat with Google now and haven't noticed any battery issues with Google now's location alerts. Have there been any recent changes in the android OS that could make location based reminders a closer reality?

Thanks so much for your dedication to this app. I periodically look around at other time management apps but have yet to find one I like better!

Thanks. It's going to get even better shortly. I've been "away" from the forum (unintentionally) because I've been working on version 3, which will bring the app up to a more modern layout. Plus, I've been working on many of the features that I've been long promising. And, it will be a free upgrade for all users.
