MapAlarm will help you whenever it comes to remembering places, sharing them & getting things done at certain locations.

PLEASE NOTE that for best results WIFI should be enabled. You needn't be connected to a wifi, of course - just leave the switch on.

MapAlarm will remind you even if your iPhone/iPad is idle or if you’re currently using a different app. Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.

DON'T WORRY about battery life! GPS is turned OFF by default. The arrow icon on top of your screen does not indicate that GPS is turned on but only location services in general. While in background MapAlarm uses battery-friendly wifi / cell tower positioning.
