PLEASE NOTE that for best results WIFI should be enabled. You needn't be connected to a wifi, of course - just leave the switch on.
MapAlarm will remind you even if your iPhone/iPad is idle or if you’re currently using a different app. Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
DON'T WORRY about battery life! GPS is turned OFF by default. The arrow icon on top of your screen does not indicate that GPS is turned on but only location services in general. While in background MapAlarm uses battery-friendly wifi / cell tower positioning.

A nice way to remember and recall your favorite locations.
I've tested a dozen apps of this type, and this is the only one I've found that both works reliably in the background and doesn't drain my battery. (iPhone 3GS, iOS 4.2.1, app setting power mode "when locked or in background", alarm distance: 500m. I charge every night, but only at night.)
When I loaded the app, I gave it location services permission, but it still loaded a map of Berlin. I try using the crosshair button, but it does not show my current location. I can search for a location nearby and see that it has a pin at my current location, however, it still will not snap to my location when I hit the crosshairs, which is what I would expect. It also will not let me set an alarm for my current location, which would be useful. If these issues were fixed, I'd be willing to pay for this application.
