newGEO Alert

 

Description

newGEO Alert will ONLY work on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS running iOS 4 (multi-tasking).

newGEO Alert is a new GPS location service driven by a new software product named “newGEO Location Engine”.

This location engine will accurately alert you (normally) within meters when you are near a point of interest and at the same time not significantly run down the battery on the iPhone. Under normal use you should be able to run the program in the background at all times 24 / 7. Actual results may vary.

Typical GPS systems will completely drain the battery in about 3 hours, newGEO Alert will not.

newGEO Alert will automatically remind you of places of interest / reminders as you near the location or when you exit the location. You can set up stores, gas stations, grocery stores, cleaners, church, school or anything that may be of interest to you.

Watch the map in real-time as you travel toward your saved locations. It is a real GPS map.

You can be reminded with:

- with a visual prompt either entering or exiting a location

- with a the iPhone vibrate

- with a selected sound of over 50 sounds

- with your own recorded messages (only in the foreground)

The reminders can occur even if the phone is off (not powered off)

“newGEO Location Engine”

An enormous amount of research and development time has been devoted to the creation of the “newGEO Location Engine”. The development and QA (Quality Assurance) team are proud to present this new product.

It will save battery life when it is not needed.

The newGEO Engine is self modifying in order to modify its behavior depending you how you travel and understand your travel habits. The engine knows how long you are stationary and adjusts the program’s settings like-wise.

If you are many miles / kilometers from your saved locations, the newGEO Location Engine will enter a “save battery” mode until you get closer to your reminder / alert locations.

REMINDERS:

The system will automatically remind you when you get close to a location both when you enter a location and when you exit a location.

FEATURES:

* newGEO Location Engine will automatically find your locations with a reduction of normal GPS battery usage

* newGEO Location Engine will move into “save battery” mode if you are many miles / kilometers from your saved locations.

* Real-time GPS map will guide you to a saved location

* Runs in the background and can alert you even if the iPhone is turned off (not powered down)

* Easy to use with a simple user interface

* You can switch to “GPS only” mode for continuous mapping

* Distance can be reported in either meters or yards

* Three modes to add locations / reminders:

- iPhone Contacts / Address Book

- Drop a pin at a desired map location – it will look for the address

* Over 50 sounds – select one for a special location. (fun)

* Record your own messages and play them back when you are near a location (foreground only)

* iPhone vibrate when nearing a location

* Maps can be viewed with the standard, satellite, or hybrid maps

* When the iPhone is charging, newGEO Alert runs in continuous update mode (“GPS only” mode)

* Ability to turn each location off when not needed (example: I already picked up the dry cleaning)

Not Usable

:
I have iPhone 3Gs with iOS version 4.2.1. I put this on and, to test it, entered the location of our Costco where we were planning to go the next day. I left the app on in the background, which should be possible if it's to be of use. When I pulled my phone out next the battery was exhausted. Not being sure how full it had been, I just charged it up.

This morning I put my phone in my pocket, Location services on and this app on in the background. When we got to Costco no alarm had sounded. I brought the app to the front and then the alarm came on and it said we were 11 yards away - about right. I left the app on in the ackground, no other app on at all that accesses Location services, made sure wi-fi was off and put it in my pocket. Tonight, about 12 hours after it was unplugged, the battery was exhausted again.

My conclusion is that two of the things vital to its functioning don't work. First it doesn't give the alarm when you reach the set distance when it's only on in the background. Second rather than conserving the battery it uses it up quite fast.

It's supposed to serve a purpose I need served but it's unusable so I'm disappointed and upset.

4/5 stars

works well - lots of potential!

a great concept that can go a long way. radius selection is a great tool for places you don't go to very often. looking forward to a new release.
