In this study, a location based reminder application RemindMe, enhanced with various location tagging options using social networking APIs is proposed. Main purpose of this application is to allow users to create reminders based on the location besides time and to notify users with those reminders automatically. In terms of ease of use, a hybrid structure consisting of various components is formed for location tagging. First of all, the user tags the locations using the applications such as Google Maps or Foursquare or via the embedded sensors of the Android device. Then, he creates reminders for the tagged locations and when he gets close to this location, the system notifies the user. Our application is separated from similar applications with its enhanced location tagging feature. Moreover, by consisting of various services, it is open to innovations on the way to become a social reminder application. The usability test results indicate that RemindMe is an effective location based reminder application.
