    Is there an app that will let me set an alarm to sound at a specific time, but only if I'm in a certain place? For example, I want an alarm to go off at 9:00 if I'm at home.
    TYIA!

    I know it can do reminders for certain situations, but not sure how powerful the feature is.

    Places it knows should work:
    Remind me when i get Home, work, ect

    Not sure about the only if I'm home/work/ect

    I think this is what you're looking for. But you need to understand how it works in the first place.

    In my experience, you can set a Google Now reminder for either a place it a time, not both. Please let me know if you have success with both.

    Yeah i tried mixing commands on Now in different combinations and it just uses the first command and everything you type/say after that it thinks is the reminder message. Maybe itl get smarter in future :)

    onx is a research project at Microsoft. It lets you control your phone using Javascript remotely. You see the example on the website, you'll find the code quite easy to write. I've used it for couple months. For example, if you're in a certain range from a certain building, you can also set an alarm. It's quite interesting to try :)
