The third patent application I was a part of is now public in the USPTO search.
Systems and Methods for Sharing Context Among Standalone Applications
The goal is to provide a system where system-wide contexts can be set and apps can set notifications based on that contextual information.

A subscribed maps app could proactively provide a notification with the distance to the address.
