It appears as if iPhone users will soon have another reminder app coming available. The app is called Checkmark and as of now is noted as coming soon. And before anyone hears about yet-another-reminder style app and tunes out, this one does appear to have at least one trick — it will offer location based reminders. In fact, the tagline for the app reads as follows;
“Reminders — when and where you want them.”
While we have yet to play with the app ourselves, Dave Caolo over at TUAW has apparently spent some time playing. Caolo notes that the “once things are set up, a reminder can be created with three taps.” Going on to mention how “that beats Reminders and is a heck of a lot faster than Siri’s hit-or-miss dictation translation.” Sounds pretty good, after all, the less work and time to enter — the more likely you will be to use.
Some of the speed for entry apparently comes from the ability to create buttons for frequently used locations. The app also (in addition to location), offers the reminders to be triggered based on times. That all being said, we still have a bit to learn about Checkmark, but if nothing else, the little bit that Caolo has offered up does make us want to check it out once it comes available in the App Store. In the meantime, make sure to follow that TUAW link below and also watch the video.
