Location notifications needing to launch app
  • Sometimes when I arrive at a trigger location, I have to launch the app to get the notifications.  Has anyone seen this before?

  • Yes, 
    IOS 5.1.1 and IOS 5.0.1 . Sometimes, notification will appear when app is foreground sometimes background will works. Very inconsistent. Not sure how to resolve this either. 

  • We've seen this in some of our testing as well. In certain cases, the iPhone OS doesn't deliver background location events until the device is woken up. It could be a number of factors that cause this, including how close you are to cell towers and wifi hotspots, whether your wifi is turned on, and the size of the geofences.
  • What can be done to improve the reliability and accuracy of the notification? for example i'd set a notification for a point and i visited the point twice today - once in the morning and once in the evening. I only received the notification when i went there in the evening.

    Setting is 'realtime' and radius is 100m. Had wifi enabled also to improve accuracy in both occassions.

Howdy, Stranger!
