Depending on how far you wish to travel, it is best to drop multiple pins along the way.Sometimes, shortcuts along side roads will appear which can save you time.
Setting Reminder Zones
One of the handiest features of any smartphone is a simple ‘to do’ list. While these aretried and true tools people have long used, you can take your ‘to do’ list to a whole newlevel of very cool and practical functionality by incorporating mapping features usingtheir geolocation technology which is built right into them.Let’s say you need to pick up some eggs on the way home, along with a few items fromtwo other locations. By using reminder apps which have geolocation ‘smarts’ built intothem, you can have these apps warn you when you approach a store or location whereyou are supposed to stop and do something, or also prompt you after you drive past thearea to help insure that you won’t forget. These apps are entirely programmable thisway, you can set them up to work whichever way you are most comfortable handling todo tasks.The point in doing this is that by using geolocation technology, you won’t have toremember anything, when you are either in the relevant area or leaving it, the app willdo all the work and keep you informed via its reminders.
Another handy feature with mapping apps is their ability to identify things you find to beof interest. Let’s say you want to find out where all the shopping malls are, or certainkinds of restaurants. By using these kinds of ‘find x’ mobile apps, you can instantlyidentify places of interest to visit in your surrounding area.Quite often, apps which list local business and other types of venues, often include their contact information. A word to the wise: if you intend to go see a movie or stop at acertain popular restaurant where seating is limited, it behooves you to call them first onthe phone to make sure there’s room available or that your reservation will be made inyour name. It is not enough to just go blindly head out to some place which shows up onthese apps, if the place is overbooked you might end up traveling there in vain.
What if my ‘favorite place’ is not shown?
If your favorite places are not automagically shown in your app, you can trydownloading competing software which might provide more details or do a better job islisting venues, or you can (in worst case) mark your favorite spots manually.
