Do you ever text and drive when you approach your destination? Do your friends ever wait since you forgot to send them a text once you got home? Do you wish there was an easier way to get location-based reminders?

Our encounters with these problems inspired us to make Textloc, an Android app that sends custom text messages to your contacts once you're reached a location of your choice. This app reduces distracted driving because drivers can lock in their alerts before they're on the road. Avoiding accidents or driving tickets means more money saved for you! This app reminds our friends and family that we got home safe, even if we've forgotten.

It's designed to be simple to use and available for a wide audience. It draws on several Android APIs and libraries to let the user customize their texts flexibly. We hope to continue development to enhance its location-based features and expand into a productivity app. This key feature would help make our lives easier, hopefully it would help you too!
