Went on a business trip but haven’t stopped by to say hello to Auntie Jane who lives 5 minutes away from the business meeting? Running late for family dinner (once again) but completely oblivious to your other half’s favorite chocolate store right in front of you? Forgot to buy milk? All those troublesome situations can be avoided with the location based reminders. Who ever came up with the location reminder deserves a medal!


Taskio's Location based reminders will simply notify you (Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad) when you are nearby the given location. As with all of Taskio features it's very easy to use so let's have a closer look how its done...   

In our case we want to create a reminder for certain shop with luxury chocolate treats - what a better way to keep your better half happy then completely "spontaneous" little presents from their favorite shop?!

We start with creating a new task - after choosing from the basic screen  All tasks tap the blue Plus button on the bottom of the screen and type the new task "Chocolate for my Honey"... 

...tap Reminder to choose specific day or time for this task - in our case we don't set a specific date - as we want to be notified whenever we are nearby the wished location we choose the option Someday...
...Reminder set we continue to set location for our task tapping the Location on the screen. A familiar image will be displayed with our current position on the map and the  search address option in upper row of the screen...

At this point it is up to you how you'll proceed to choose your wished location as Taskio offers several options how to set up the location reminder:

  •     Select your current location - simply tap on the displayed text with your current address
  •     Select saved (favorite) location.
  •     Pick a location from map - tapping on the map to get a full screen display and simply pinpointing the right address on the map
  •     Search for an address

 ... in our case we'll go with the last option as we don't remember the exact address only the name of the shop "Hotel Chocolat" in Bromley. We'll start with typing  „Hotel Chocolat Bromley“ (your options are displayed – the more info you type the more will be location narrowed down )... 

... now we'll tap on the right address and the location will be displayed on the map... 

...if you are satisfied with it – tap Done and location of your task has been set...

Note:  In this Step you can also save the location to your Favorites with a familiar Star symbol. Tap on the Star symbol, write a short description for the location and the next time you'll need to create a task with the location based reminder, the basic screen will not only display your current location but also all your saved favorite locations - you'll just choose the right one and you are done. 

Location already set we can further add some tags or subtasks - it's all up to us with how much detail we'll create the task. For our present task we further choose Personal and VIP tags...

...and satisfied with all details we'll save our task with Done... All set!


Now all that's left to do is buying some chocolate goodies when the reminder pops up and impress your dearest with your attention... Even if Taskio doesn't have a magic formula to make all your daily lives perfect  it can certainly help you to at least keep yourself out of unnecessary troubles...
