Using a map location in a Reminder
Authored by: Demani on Apr 23, '12 09:00:20AM

I've done similar things, but really this highlights how halfbaked the Reminders app is in practice. Needing to have contacts created is pretty crazy, and "Right here/within 50 feet of right here" type option would be way more useful for a lot of things (i.e. that tailor you stop at to get your pants adjusted before you go to a wedding, or a watch repair shop-places you use infrequently). Or to make it more useful when traveling.

Hopefully someone is developing a Reminders+ app.

All that being said-the map option can be useful if you aren't somewhere immediately addressable (eg a trailhead ("put on sunscreen"), an amusement park ride ("pick up roller coaster photo"), or a park ("check with kids about the using bathroom").
