GPSNotifier 1.0 for iPhone 4 Is Available for Download

jeTap, Inc. has introduced GPSNotifier 1.0 for iPhone 4, their app that sounds an alarm and displays a text message when the user arrives at a chosen location. Relying on Apple’s new Region Monitoring, an always-on cell tower positioning system, the app and alarm are automatically activated when the device enters any specified alarm zone. Its features include: 64 user-definable alarm locations; proximity sensitivity control; and location entry using the address book, map, or current location. Because it does not make use of standard, satellite-based GPS data, the app does not make any additional power demands on the battery.

GPSNotifier 1.0 for iPhone 4, their app that sounds an alarm and displays a text message when the user arrives at a chosen location. Relying on Apple new Region Monitoring, an always-on cell tower positioning system, the app and alarm are automatically activated when the device enters any specified alarm zone. Its features include: 64 user-definable alarm locations; proximity sensitivity control; and location entry using the address book, map, or current location.

With iPhone 4 Apple introduced a new, supplementary positioning system based on a complex algorithm performing continuous positional triangulations between cell phone towers. In metropolitan areas with many such towers, measurements can be highly accurate. And because the iPhone is constantly in “Receive” mode, searching for cell towers, these location coordinates are purchased with practically no cost to the battery. This continuous, background, global positioning system is called Region Monitoring by Apple, and it is the technology that makes GPSNotifer possible.

The app’s convenient GUI allows the user to set an audible alarm and text message by entering an exact location, such as a street address, from the address book. Alternatively, the user may go to a map and tap to create a pushpin location, or set the current location. Upon being set, a blue tinted circle indicates the range or proximity of the alarm. In areas with many cell towers a sensitivity setting of “1 mile” or less is appropriate, but in more sparsely populated areas users are encouraged to experiment with settings of “2 miles” or more.
