Is there a way to setup a timed event that a BB10 Cascades app can respond to? For example, if I want my app to start checking Geolocation information at some specified time.
Any suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks for your quick reply. I just looked at QTimer and it seems like it only goes off after some interval. What I'm looking for is more like something tha would go off at a specific datetime, which could be recurring. Is there a way to achieve this with QTimer, or would you recommend something else?

Oh, and in response to your question, although it'd be nice for it to occur while the app isn't running, I'm not sure if that's going to be possible right now, but I'd definitely like this to occur while the app is running.

Ok thanks, I think I understand how this could work with a QTimer. I was hoping there'd be some "cleaner" way do it maybe, that would make it easier to have it occur weekly, or on certain days of a week, although I can imagine that could all be done by calculating all the right timer intervals.
You said there are other appropaches possible? Are they much harder? Could it be done by responding to a calendar event, for example? That sounds like it'd be easier if it's possible.
