THE LONG SCHPEEL...
Neer is the must-have, mobile phone location-based service designed with today’s modern family in mind. Neer offers trusted and automatic location sharing to answer those simple , everyday family questions: “Have you left work yet?” “Did the kids get picked up?” “Did you stop at the grocery store on your way home?” Neer saves you time by automatically providing answers in a secure, intuitive, and fun-to-use app.
Neer is even more awesome now that you can set a magic reminder. Have you ever forgotten what you were supposed to pick up at the grocery store? Set a "To Do" at a place and your phone will buzz when you get there. Never forget those chicken fingers again!
You define your own locations - “Home”, “Office”, “Aiden’s School”, “Grocery Store” - and Neer automatically updates when you enter or leave. Neer is the ultimate organizer and communications tool for today’s busy families.
Neer is not a novelty app designed to broadcast your location to vast social networks. Neer uses location to communicate only to those who need to be in the know. Neer uses all the features of your smartphone to dynamically sense your location, eliminating the phone calls or text messages needed to synchronize the day.
With Neer, now you know.
Developed by Qualcomm Services Labs, you can trust your most confidential information and most important communications to this Fortune 500 company and pioneer of wireless technologies.
Q: I see a purple arrow in the status bar even when I don't have Neer open, does that mean GPS is being used constantly?
A: No. The purple arrow indicates that Neer is registered for iPhone background location services. Neer checks location when needed, first using the cell tower network and Wifi. GPS is only used as a fallback. In addition, Neer learns your schedule and adjust itself to check less when not needed. Qualcomm has a long history in wireless and Neer is designed to minimize battery usage as much as possible.
Q: What can I expect in terms of battery life?
A: Continued use of applications running in the background can decrease battery life. Under normal phone usage, our target is for each user to achieve at least one full day of battery life while running Neer and doing all the other things you normally do on your phone. We have done a significant number of optimizations to improve battery life, and commit to making further improvements.
