1. user-selectable geo-fences. I don't need to be reminded to do something if I'm walking into the door, if I'm walking in somewhere, odds are, I've already remembered.. I need to be reminded to do something as I'm about to walk or drive by a location. Let me set the geo-fence circle as large or small as I need. Better yet, let me select a stretch of road for something I need to be reminded about. Remind me to buy vitamins when driving west, remind me to buy cat food when driving east.
2. Let users select locations on a f'in MAP. I shouldn't need to have every office supply store, grocery store, pet store, etc in my contacts..
3. Multiple locations for a reminder. If I need to "buy milk" let me set a reminder so that my phone will remind me whenever I'm a mile away from anywhere I can buy some milk! Let me set all Publix stores, or all Winn-Dixie stores, or all grocery/convenience stores within 10mi of my home or office.
4. If I'm an hour drive away from the nearest reminder location, power down the gps for 15-30 minutes, save some battery life.
Was really hoping 5.1 would add at least some of these.. Guess we'll have to wait until iOS 6???
I would like to see larger/better proximity to the reminders app: I tried to put my local Target into my contacts so that I could use it as a geofence to remind me to get things when I come back. But even though I was in the store, the GPS linked to the street address, which was one particular mall entrance. When I come in other entrances and go to Target, no location reminders went off. I'd like to be able to set 'nearby' as a trigger.
