iOS/Android: Todoist, one of our favourite to-do list apps, took the wraps off location-based reminders today. Now you can create to-dos that trigger reminders when you enter or leave a specific area. Remembering pick up milk when you pass the supermarket has never been easier.
The service has been a while coming, and while we showed you a hacked-together method in the past, this one works with your device's GPS, and works in both iOS and Android (iOS available today, Android before the end of the week). To use it, just create your tasks as normal, add them to your list, and then set a location in Apple Maps (iOS) or Google Maps (Android and iOS). You can manage those locations or create to-dos with locations associated with them on any platform, even on the desktop or in Todoist's Gmail or Outlook plugins. Then, when you pick up your phone, you'll get your reminders right there.
There is a catch: Location-based notifications are a Todoist Premium feature, so you'll need to sign up for a $US29 per year premium account to make use of them. To be fair, Premium comes with other features too, which you can see on its pricing page here. If you're interested in trying it out, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Premium to see how it all works. Hit the link below to learn more.
