Localscope v3 Integrates with the iOS Reminders System

"Localscope v3 Integrates with the iOS Reminders System"

Every so often, we discover new location information through friend recommendations, newspaper articles or Localscope. These, we quickly add to our favorite GTD apps or to-do lists. Jotting down reminders is easy, but the problem is; we forget to look at the reminder list when we need it the most!

Localscope promises to help you better remember things you want to do at or around locations. Version 3 introduces integration with the iPhone’s reminders system enabling users to set location based reminders at any location discovered with Localscope. Users can choose to be alerted by push notifications on arrival at, or departure from the location and even categorize the reminders into lists, all this from within Localscope.

Beyond adding reminders, Localscope aggregates all location based reminders from the reminders app and presents them as search and discovery sources in Localscope. This lets users visualize reminders as location points using the 3 unique views of Localscope and take further actions on the reminders like navigating to the points using any of the integrated navigation apps.

Localscope could be used to create a trip itinerary by searching for diverse points of interest across social networks and search engines and adding reminders to them. This itinerary can then be viewed in a nearest to farthest distance sorted list or plotted on a map in Localscope for easy destination selection or navigation routing during the travel.

Localscope v3 has been completely re-engineered around the new iOS6 to take advantage of its new features like native sharing integration and native Facebook authentication, and flaunts an updated user interface to better match the new iOS 6 design. With v3, Localscope now integrates with the new Apple Maps app by letting users open points of interest found in Localscope into the Maps app for turn by turn directions or visual exploration using the awesome new 3D flyover view.

Localscope v3 introduces a new view for connected car receiver HUDs, simply plug-in your iPhone to the car receiver and the points of interest will be laid out on a map on the screen, enabling the driver to easily see places closeby. This feature is supported for other secondary displays and even works with the AppleTV over Airplay.

I hope you enjoy using this version and as usual, we are keen on hearing your feedback about Localscope.

The new and updated version of Localscope is now globally available on the Apple AppStore.
