    I installed Spotty and a few others to check them out. Spotty told me yesterday an hour and a half after I got home that I was home (not at all helpful), and when I went past the grocery store, it never reminded me to pick up chocolate chips (so I missed out on cookies when I got home last night).

    Doh! :p I just checked my battery usage, and found that Spoty Lite used 36%. I thought this app was supposed to use the available mobile/cellular network connection instead of the GPS when available so as to save battery life.

    I really want to have an app that can give me reminders based on geographical locations. Is there an app that can do that and not cause such a horrible battery drain?
