I really like the reminders feature in iOS 5, especially the geo-tripping reminders that will alert you when you are at, or leave, specific locations.

I was disappointed, however, that you could not have 'shared reminders list'. For instance a shopping list that my wife and I could both use and contribute to that would alert us whenever we are at the grocery store.

Is there any method or workaround to accomplish this? OR is there an application that does this geo-tripping + the ability to share across multiple users?

Actually, you can share a reminders list, as long as the person you want to share with has their own iCloud account. You can share one of your reminders lists either from iCloud.com or from the Reminders app in Mountain Lion.

Either way, the process is the same: Hover over the name of a list for a second, and a small icon will appear. Click on it, then type in the name or e-mail address of the person you want to share the list with.

As noted by @crazyj, iCloud.com has since removed this ability. It is expected to return natively on the mac with OS X 10.8.2 and on iOS devices with iOS 6. –  pdd Sep 17 '12 at 22:26
    
@pdd If this is in iOS 6, can someone step-by-step it? I can't seem to find it... –  Aaron Oct 2 '12 at 17:16
    
@Aaron, looks like they did not add the ability in the released iOS 6. –  pdd Oct 2 '12 at 18:18

Looks as though according to @Crazyj's answer which was edited recently that this is back in the icloud.com - you need to hover over the list, apparently just as you did before, and a sharing icon will pop up. –  Aaron Oct 16 '12 at 15:31

Since Brant Bobby posted his answer (which was great) the iCloud.com site has changed and you can no longer create shared Reminders lists, but this is expected to return in OS X 10.8.2 & iOS 6.

It looks like as of 2012-10-15 the ability to share Reminders has been added back to the iCloud web app.

It won't let me. –  crazyj Sep 17 '12 at 22:13
    
Thanks for the heads-up. I'll be sure to update my answer once 10.8.2 drops and I have the chance to try it out. –  Brant Bobby Sep 17 '12 at 23:10
