    Hi all
    I just published my first app for bb10, and I'd like to know what do you think about it.
    It's available FREE on the BlackBerry World: GeoAlarm - BlackBerry World

    It's basically a simple GPS Alarm. You set the destination and the distance threshold and the alarm will ring when you'll approach the target area. This is useful for example if you want to take a nap on the train (the alarm will wake you up at the right time), or if you want to know when you're approaching your destination.

    I developed this app in my spare time, and I hope you'll enjoy using it.
    Please let me know what are your thought about it!

    Good luck with the app. Interesting concept. Thanks for making it available for free for bb10 users. Not that I use a subway much anymore but I suspect that the gps will not grab satellite info underground.

    Yeah, I think it won't work underground, I'm sorry

    By the way I plan to upgrade it soon, in order to add active frame and fix some little issues.
    Thank you for your interest!

    I actually only had the chance to test it once yet. It worked fine but I couldn't check if it vibrated or anything. I unlocked the screen immediately when I arrived at the location cuz I was curious, so it could be that I cancelled the vibration/sound before it appeared. It did however show me a message that I arrived.
    Are there any vibration/sound notifications? I could not find any settings to turn them on/off or alter them. If not, it would be a nice improvement.

    Great job, I especially like the simplicity of the app. That's something my apps are always lacking
    Just out of curiosity, what are your plans for the active frame?

    In the current release it will behave accordingly to the global notifications settings. That's probably not the perfect solution, so I think in the next release I'll make sure to make it always at least vibrate.

    The active frame is definitely a planned feature too. Atm I'm very busy since university exams are approaching and I work part-time too. I'll get back to bb10 development asap!
