Apple’s ‘Reminders’ app comes preloaded with iOS 6. This app includes a lot of useful features, including the ability to be reminded of tasks when you arrive at a location. For example, let’s say you have a gift card to your favorite retail location or coffee shop but each time you go there you forget to use the gift card. You could create a reminder so that when you arrive at the location, you’ll get a notification that you need to use the gift card. Here’s how to create a location-based reminder:
In the ‘Enter an Address…’ field, we’ll input the desired address. In this case, I want to be reminded to use the gift card at the Best Buy located at 5181 S State St. in Murray, Utah. When I finish entering the address, I’ll tap the ‘Details’ arrow on the top of the screen and I’ll be taken back to the Reminders Details screen.
