NearMinder is a geolocation app that helps you find nearby points of interest, events, places, and meetups. It can also give you custom alerts when you are near a certain place, helping you to always remember to use that rewards card or pick up milk when you're near a grocery store.
Create your own NearMinder. With NearMinder, you can set custom alerts to show up when you arrive at a location. For example, you could configure NearMinder to remind you to use your RewardsZone card whenever you arrive at Best Buy. You could also set a NearMinder to buy milk any time you are at a grocery store.
Events listings made easy. NearMinder integrates with many different events databases, so you can quickly and easily find out what's happening around you. Get a list of concerts and other events, and tap on them for more information. You can even get a link to the ticketing site for the event.
Find points of interest. You don't have to worry about missing out on an exciting place to visit, since NearMinder can display a list and map of the points of interest around you. Drawing information from Wikipedia and other sources, the app gives you a map to the point of interest along with a description. You can tap through to sources like Wikipedia for even more information.
Find Meetups. NearMinder also integrates with Meetup, a source for finding great groups of like-minded people to socialize and network with. Browse through the list of Meetups, and get more information on them by tapping their listings. Each one also shows up on the map, so you can easily find your way.
What is it about?
With NearMinder, you'll never miss out on great events, activities and important places around you. The app helps you find interesting nearby places to go, things to do and see, along with events to attend, providing detailed directions for getting there. You can also set “contextual reminders” to appear whenever visiting a named place, like a particular store or restaurant, or even when visiting a place that you specify by category only (e.g., grocery, pharmacy, etc.). NearMinder also enables you to share items of interest with friends via text, email, or other installed social media connections, as well as to copy any items of interest to your Notepad for quick reference later.
For those who...
- Love exploring the world around them
- Want to find new things to do and see
Not for those who...
- Never leave the house
- Don't want reminders when they're near particular locations
Why we love it
NearMinder has a great set of integrations, from Yelp to concert ticketing sites to Wikipedia. It even integrates with Meetup, allowing you to find just about anything that might be happening around you. If you don't know where a point of interest, place, meetup, or concert is happening, you can just tap on the pin on the map to get directions directly from the Maps app. The custom NearMinder feature is especially handy.
