notifications when app not running

edited September 2014 in Questions Posts: 20

Does anyone have any code snippets or suggestions for setting up notifications to be fired on the iDevice if my app has been put into the background?
I'm building a timer that need to alert the user to events at a specific time, even if the device has closed the app, or another app has taken focus.



  • @Famous I believe that this feature has not been added to Codea yet.

    what you're looking for are local notifications. I made a feature request while back, but you might be better off making an add on for them

  • Thanks guys.
    What do you mean by "add on". Is that native IOS code that the lua code can call?

    @Famous, yes an add on is native Obj-C that you can call from lua

  • Ok, native objective c code. Can I run that from the codea ide or does that have to be done within Xcode with an exported codea project ( please please please say it can be done within the codea ide)

  • Sorry, but this has to be done from Xcode with an exported project.

    Search for the Codea build machine, it's as close as you can get to not using xcode to do things like this.
