There’s a new geo-location based service that I just found out about called Neer. I’m already using BrightKite, Foursquare and Gowalla, so not sure if I need this one but it does something that’s kind of nice. I can setup the application to work silently in the background and let an “inner-circle” of people know where I’m at without having to update anything on my phone manually.
For example, Neer can let my wife know that I’ve left the office and I’m heading home. Or, let her know when I’m at home, or a list of other places I setup as being those included in notifications to that circle.
One thing I wish is that new apps would stop getting developed on their own location based solutions, but instead integrate with the other location services I’m already using.
My other search involves a location based reminder service. I don’t need to be reminded to do something at 5pm on Thursday, I need to remember to pick-up that sleeping bag I let my brother borrow the next time I’m near his house on the north side. If you can find me a service that does that reliably, you’ve got a winner.
