We received some questions:
- No Credit Card information is sent to us,everything is handled by Google Checkout which is as secure as Paypal or any other Internet payment system!
- The battery usage of our application is minimal, what might use more power is the GPS chip, which is used by the App by default. You can disable within the App's Settings. If you leave your WiFi chip on, and have Data Plan this will be enough to locate you.

The features at a glance:
- Add Spots either by double taping on the map, searching for an address, or using your current position and add reminders, change profiles or block calls for this position
- You could either choose to use GPS or Coarse (Cell Tower or Wifi) positioning, with both being set up by you. You can choose time intervals and distance for each location update and your battery will thank you for that.
- Send SMS to someone when you are at the current spot or when you leave it.
- Enable start, end time, days of week and if you want to fire the events when you enter or leave a current location.Locale
- Choose the radius for each Spot its category and color flag.
- Notifications include normal Android notifications and a custom alert dialog.
- Block all calls at your office for instance, or choose to allow from your address book, block restricted numbers, white and blacklists and delete the traces from the call history log.
- Sleeping in the bus or train and missing the station?No problem, set an alarm and add a Spot and a radius and you will be notified right on time before you have to take off!
[New in the latest version 1.4]
- We introduce the custom locations. Add Spots based on current WiFi connected or WiFi/Cell Towers in Range. Please read the FAQ section for best practices.
- You can now drag and drop the pushpin for a more precise way to add a Spot
- You are now presented with the ability to enter a Battery level, below which the App will not use the GPS chip. Once you charge your phone the GPS positioning will fire again and you will not have to worry about missing Spots.
- You can also disable the GPS for a time range of the day . A good example is if you're at the office and would like to disable GPS if you're not using Spoty for that proximity. You can enter 9-17 and the app will stop using GPS and save your battery and will fire once again when you leave the office. Another good example is during the night, but it is up to you to decide what is best for your needs.
- You can add GPS timeout - Spoty will look for a GPS fix for a certain amount of time and stop if no fix is found - saves battery. After a period of time Spoty will try again and look for location.
- You can also decide what distance interval the app should be using for positioning.
- The app automatically knows if you're staying at the same place for too long and disables the GPS chip and enables it if you leave your location
