This was last updated 2 years ago; as we’re all aware, an app suggestion is very different than creating an app which is solid, bug free, ready for consumers, and approved by the App Store. Suggestions have meaning if the app can be realistically created within the allotted time and resources.
One suggestion is a basic GPS app, which when launched shows a Map with two buttons:
- “Save” my current position
- “Navigate” to the last saved position
This is a basic single view map app. the two buttons are placed on the map view. Pressing Save places a marker on the map. When pressed, the current position is saved in local persistent storage.
Pressing the Restore button will read the last saved persistent location, then display the map marker and Apple Maps navigation instructions to return to the previously saved location.
The location is saved persistently, as iOS can kill an app at any time.
This app can be used for numerous purposes, remembering a parked car, or other. Granted some of these features are built into iOS11, though these do not work much of the time with certain bluetooth car setups. This app always works, assuming a network connection.
