I want to make an app that alerts its user every hour or so with a notification and vibration/sound. Is this possible to do on C2?

Thanks,
Dan

It depends on the platform. Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 handles these differently and it's quite strict too as it needs to run on the background and use the battery.

You can check this for more info: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 2(v=vs.105).aspx

The notifications in the WP8 would be a toast notification or a Live Tile update. The sound and vibration would not work.
For toast notifications you need to search for Push notifications.


Sadly as you can see this is not a cross platform feature; for the WP8 you will need to modify the exported solution quite heavily to make this function only with the notification.
