Alarm On Place is a free GPS alarm app for iPhone to sound alarm at a specific location. Using this app, you will be able to set alarms based on specific locations such that when you enter the locations, this app will sound an alarm automatically. Actually, what happens is when you set an alarm by selecting a location on the map, this app will start monitoring your GPS location. After that, when you enter the selected location, it will send a notification, start vibrating the iPhone, and play a sound loudly. The best part is that it can sound the alarm even if your iPhone is on silent mode.
Setting GPS alarms for specific locations using this app is very simple, as all you gotta do is drop a pin on the map, choose the radius of the alarm location, and select a sound. To make this app work properly, make sure to keep your GPS turned on. Unlike the typical alarm apps for iPhone, the purpose of this app is not to wake you up from sleeping, and instead it can alert you when you reach any specific location.
How to Sound Alarm on iPhone when you Enter a Specific Location:
To get started, simply install and open up “Alarm On Place” app on your iPhone. After that, you will see 4 tabs at the bottom named, Map, Alarms, Notifications, and Settings. On the “Map” tab, you will see a typical world map with your current location and other options to change map style, navigate, etc.
Now, to set an alarm for a specific location, all you need to do is long-tap on the desired location on the map. This will drop a pin on the location and make it the target location to sound the alarm. You can also enter various details of the alarm like alarm title, the radius of the location (200 Mts to 10 KMs), alarm sound, and enable/disable snooze.
After you’re done with setting the alarm, you can go ahead and close or minimize the app. Now, when you enter inside the selected radius of the location, it will automatically sound an alarm loudly, send a notification, and vibrate your phone. When you unlock your iPhone, you will also see a popup notification with the option to snooze the alarm.
As I have mentioned above, the best and unique thing about this app is that it will sound the alarm even if your iPhone is on silent mode. You can go to the app settings to change the distance unit, enable overlay for inactive alarms, and enable auto-disable alarm once triggered.
Alarm On Place is a very interesting and useful GPS alarm app for iPhone. Personally, I like this app as it is quite unique from typical alarm apps and alerts you when you enter a location. With the help of a notification, vibration, and sound, it makes sure that you’re notified properly. Go ahead and try this app for free.
