Android, Best Android Application

Not too long ago, Google Now and Google Keep both acquired the ability to set location-based reminders. This is a great feature, as a reminder can only ever be as useful as its predefined triggers. One major issue with the two aforementioned apps, however, is their requirement for relatively new versions of Android (4.0 or greater). Since a sizeable chunk of the Android pie (32%) is made up of Android 2.x users, there has to be a more inclusive solution.

Thankfully for users running older versions of Android, XDA Forum Member safet.me created Location Reminder. As you would expect from an app promising location-based reminders, Location Reminder allows you to set predefined locations to trigger notifications. Unlike other solutions, however, Location Reminder allows for much more granular control of trigger parameters such as radius and transition. Furthermore, different actions can be set to take place upon reaching the destination such as sounding an alarm or sending a text or email message to a predefined address. These two features make Location Reminder potentially useful to any, rather than just those stuck on older versions of Android.
