How to Set Location Based Reminders in iOS Devices

Have you ever gone to the store and then forgot what you went there for?   What about thinking, I really need to remember to do this when I get home?!!!!  iOS has location based reminders that can help you with this!!!!

Go into your Reminders App in your iOS device.


When you open it up you may or may not have reminders in here.  I put grocery shopping lists, work lists and things I need to remember here.  Create a new list by clicking on the plus + sign.


I’m going to create a new list called:  Get Milk.


Add an item to your list, get milk.  Then click on the Icon icon.


Then push the on button at “Remind me at a location”


Then select the location you want to remember this at, you can type in the name of a store, or an address.  Then select when you want it to remind you, “When I arrive, or when I Leave”


After you have chosen your location and when you want it to remind you, select Done.

Then it will remind you when you arrive or leave a location!   Pretty cool huh?
