Re: set alarm event to launch an app.

No. We don't expect anything new like that until 10.2 at the earliest.

We should be able to learn more information about this at BlackBerry Live (specifically the developer part of the conference) in two weeks.

Re: set alarm event to launch an app.

No.

 

However I could think of one very hacky way of doing it with a headless app so you could look at that...

If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. :smileyhappy:

Re: set alarm event to launch an app.

Just wanted to add that a timer based trigger is a top priority in the next batch of triggers we are building.

Re: set alarm event to launch an app.

Any update on time triggers? 10.2 is here, 10.2.1 is soon to be released, so it's time for time based triggers :smileywink:
