I am working on a custom alarm app which will alert the user time to time. However I cannot find a way to schedule the app running and ringing alarm. Recently, I have come across some ported android apps which have similar functionality and they do the job. At the alarm time, those apps turns on automatically and ring alarm. Does that mean we, cascades programmers, have less access to the system than android app developers? How come ported android apps can run at scheduled time and cascades apps can't? Or is there any way to do that in cascade as well?
Solved! Go to Solution.

There is a rather nice clock app preinstalled if I remember correctly. I am also eagerly awaiting the headless apps.

I was just about to create a thread about this very same thing. I was trying to build in some "alarm"-like functionality into my cascades app only to realize I have no idea how to do it.
I found a few Android apps that can do this but I figured the API was mapped for Android apps but the feature was never implemented into the cascades API.
I suppose "headless apps" might solve the problem, but the description doesn't make mention of any day or time triggers. So is this really where we are at right now? Android apps with more functionality than native ones?
