Placed is an app quick launcher for use with Bluetooth LE Beacons. Launch apps tied to specific locations with a single swipe directly from your lock screen.
• A timer app in your kitchen
• The remote app when you sit down next to your Apple TV
• A routing app when you are standing next to your wardrobe
Add your own apps using launch URLs or choose from one of the presets like Remote, Safari, Maps, Reminders, Waymate, Wunderlist, Omnifocus, Fantastical. The app notifications will show up on your lock screen when you are closer than 1m to your set up location.
Of course, to use Placed you need one or more Bluetooth LE Beacons. You also need to know their identifiers (UUID, Major ID, Minor ID).
Take a look at the video below to better understand how it works. iBeacons currently cost around $100 for a 3-pack. You can purchase them from Roximity, Estimote, and others.
You can purchase Placed from the App Store for $2.99.
