Twist: Location Alert Tool for iPhone
Have you ever been stuck on the road without any way to let you colleagues or family know when you will arrive at your destination? Maybe you want to keep your family members or loved ones from worrying as you commute. Twist for iPhone is a handy application that lets you inform your friends, family, or colleagues when you arrive.
The idea here is very simple: Twist lets you alert others where you are and when they can expect to see you. Whether you are driving, walking or taking the bus should not matter as Twist can estimate your arrival time. The app uses maps, SMS, and GPS capability on your iPhone to get its job done. The user interface is fairly decent too.
Twist for iPhone is not perfect but when it works, it can be quite helpful for iPhone users. The idea certainly has potential though. You do want to be careful how long you use this app as continued use of GPS can decrease your iPhone’s battery life. The app is available for free at this time.
