    Hi,

    first let me say thenks to all the developers who make patches. The patches make the pre worth keeping and make webos customizable to what I like. I currently have 60+ patches installed

    so I got this idea, what if there was a way to make a patch/app that could work as a notification based on your GPS location and you could set a reminder based on that place.

    I got this idea using mode switcher trigger by GPS Location. What if you could save GPS locations: home, work, church, moms house etc. And be able to set up the app to next time I'm at church remember to drop off this or that, or next time I'm at moms house remind me to now the grass for her.

    if there is already something out there that can do this, please let me know. If not, would someone make a patch for it?

    thanks

    use mode switcher to open the app when you enter the area that you desire the reminder from -- not as customizable as geostrings (awsome app ) but free

    Along those lines I'd love a patch/app that would notify me when near address of (certain) people in my contacts. Had an app on my WinMo phone that did this. Kinda fun.

    GeoStrings allows you to assign contacts as locations in geostring tasks.
