Evaluating Location Based Reminders

Kevin A. Li, Timothy Sohn and William G. Griswold
May 18, 2005

Although location-based reminder applications have been widely prototyped, there are few results regarding their impact on people: how are they used, do they change peoples' behavior, and what features most influence usefulness. Cell phones provide a compelling platform for the delivery of location-based reminders within a user's everyday natural context. We present requirements for location-based reminders resulting from a qualitative study performed at a university campus, and how these results are influencing ongoing design of a more comprehensive location-based reminder system.
