Zeal Alert app review: location-based task reminders



If you often venture out to run errands only to remember upon your return that there’s something you forgot to do in the area, then Zeal Alert is an app that you might want to consider downloading.

The best iPhone apps for task management

What we have here is essentially a iPhone task manager, but there’s a lot more to it than that, because it doesn’t just remind you of errands at a particular time, but rather it sends you reminders when you are in a previously-assigned location.

Let’s take a look at how this app works.

Map-Based Input

Zeal Alert can be downloaded for free from the Lifestyle section of the App Store, and it can be downloaded completely free of charge. It will download in a matter of moments due to its compact 2.4 MB package, and you can start setting up reminders right away.

The best method to go about doing that is to open up the map view and then selecting the location at which your task needs to be completed. Users can specify the radius within which they must reach from the specified location ranging from one to ten kilometers.

All the tasks you have lined up can be viewed on the map.

Alerts & Auto-Messaging

Once you’ve set up reminders, all you have to do is go about your day! GPS integration in this app will zero in on your location at all times, prompting you with alerts when you reach in the vicinity of your destination.

You can also assign a deadline for each task to receive prompts ten minutes prior in case you fail to arrive at your destination. If you don’t get there in time, a pre-set message determined by you can be sent to anybody via SMS or email.

Final Words

Zeal Alert is a great app that can not only help you get all your work done when you head out of the house, but it can also keep you safe. For instance, you can set it up to remind you to call your parents when you arrive at a destination, but if you don’t reach there, it will automatically send an email or SMS from your iPhone or iPad, prompting them of your delay or potential danger.

This is a free app and there is no reason one shouldn’t get it and use it all the time, be it to pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy or to get down at the right station.
