Set Location-based Reminders for Yourself

Geo Notepad is a Chrome application that offers a different take on reminders and notes. While most note-taking and reminder services are based on time stamps, Geo Notepad is based on location. When you write notes, you can assign them to locations. Then when you return to that location Geo Notepad will show you a list of your notes from that place. For example, I could create a list of notes that are tied to my house and a list tied to school. Then when I get to school in the morning Geo Notepad will open the list of school-based notes for me.

Applications for Education
Geo Notepad could be a good way for students to set reminders for themselves. They can create lists during the day that will pop-up when they turn on their computers or tablets at home.
