For the best and most accurate monitoring results, Wi-Fi and location services should always be enabled for Geofency.
Continued use of GPS in the background can significantly reduce battery life. Geofency was designed to use GPS very sparingly and never in the background. The app relies mostly on cell tower + Wi-Fi locations. This has been carefully chosen to get the best battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Significant locations requires work-around
Monitored locations still works, but after upgrading to a new iPhone the app refuses to update the significant locations. Re-installing didn't help either. May be an IOS 13 thing? And yes, the setting 'significant places' is on.
Update: did receive 2 responses from the developer - 2nd response fixed the issue:
1) Go to iOS Settings > Geofency > Location and change the setting from "Always" to "Never". In the view, go back one level for the setting to take effect, and then switch back to "Always“.
2) Go to iOS Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Significant Locations. Deactivate and activate the switch there and then restart the device once.
Started working after that for me!
MUCH better than expected
I have been using this for 12 weeks to track my arrival and departure from work and I have not experienced a single inaccuracy. Being able to view day, week and months separately is excellent. An unexpected convenience is merging “events” together. In this example the “events” are my time at a location. Let’s say your phone dies while logging time at a location. Well, you can merge the two “events” together (before phone died and after phone turned back on) with a simple click. Suggestions for improvement include modification of the week start day (my company uses Saturday) and to a lesser extent the week numbers (my company week #1 occurs in February). Overall I am quite impressed with this app.
This app delivers as described! Crisp & clean. Well planned and executed. Below are additional thoughts to consider.
Goal: use app + iBeacons to measure the time I spend in each of 10 rooms (10ft x 12ft) & at 1 nursing station (in hallway) at my office. After researching, this app is best.
Problem: for reliable iBeacon signal (low enough error) across the distance of the room, the necessary power setting is high enough to produce a signal that can be regularly detected outside of the appropriate room and cause a false Clock-in event 😥.
Suggestions: (1) any existing work-arounds or suggestions anyone might have would be appreciated; (2) allow a user set signal strength threshold to define a true-positive clock-in event and exclude false events (signals less than this threshold are disregarded);(3) filter out the signals with higher frequency of errors (similar to #2, but a little diff); (4) allow user defined “ONLY 1 CLOCK-IN LOCATION AT A TIME” and only a better signal would cause a clock-out + clock-in event.
Thanks, and hope some of those changes can be made to help use the app to the best of its abilities.
