[solved] How do I make my app send notification on phone ?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Oct 22, 2014 2:57 pm

Hi,
I'm not a native so my english may not be perfect ;p

So ... i am a student on neuroscience and i have to make an android (and apple if is it possible) app that remind people to take a deep breathe every hour. To do that i need my app to send a notification or even better to launch itself every 60 minutes (on regular day), then show a picture and send a feedback to a server.

I can easily handle the image part and the send small data part.

To be more specific : i need to know (factually) how send notification even when the app is close or even better i need to do a clock alarm like app.

I've seen that some (relatively) expensive pluggin already exist with phone gap... i am ready to buy one if it can help me, but with no complete tutorial it will be pointless.

This one seems interesting but i don't understand that much how it work :
viewtopic.php?f=153&t=115490&p=829833&hilit=manual+phonegap+push#p829833

Thank you for any constructive help !

have you tried @cranberrygame phone gap plugins?

viewtopic.php?t=109586

I haven't personally tried it but i heard it works.

(personally speaking, i think many people should have a look at the page before posting a question as @cranberrygame seems to be solving half the problems :) )

@midward

If you want to make a clock-alarm-like app, then you can use local notication plugin. (Phonegap LocalNotification)

I guess you need not push notification but local notification plugin.
(PhoneGap Manual PushPlugin is push notification plugin.)

I will write some commentary as i discover the plugin(s)

So i've get the full package from viewtopic.php?t=109586
Indeed the plugins were delivered in really less than 24h and generally it feel like cranberry is a nice man.

I received a link to the personnal page of the seller and my first tought was "many many things in here".

For now i have the folder contening the pluggin, a small tutorial (too small for me, much more than elsewhere). so to use my notification pluggin i have to respect few step, i come back from university in 2-3 hours. More feedback will be send at this moment.

Allright : it is way more easier than i tought. This was not a tutorial but a cool text that tell us everything that is implemented.

So i have copy past the plug in the pluggin folder of c2 and it work as fine that i hope.

now i just hope for little improvement like choosing what sound is played and maybe little vibration to be sense in the subject pocket. But it work fine !

Best deal i've made this month (so far).
