As smartphones have become part and parcel of our lives to the extent that they almost have engaged us, it should be made sure that we effectively navigate the perilous minefield known as life. From ensuring that we don’t miss any necessary birthdays, occasions or dinner dates, mobile phones nowadays can also provide you reminders when you approach a certain place. There are known as ‘location-based reminders’ and they need you switching your device’s GPS on. The most celebrated app which does location-based reminders is, obviously, Apple’s Siri.
