Continuous local notification or Alarm

#1

Hi. I’m developing an app where I will need to display an alarm at a given time. It could also work as a local notification that rings until the user dismisses it or some time has passed (more time than the default).
I haven’t been able to figure out how to do it.

Is it even possible with Expo? I found react-native-alarm but I would have to detach and even so, it doesnt seem to work on iOS.

Do you guys have any suggestion?

Hey @alego,

This would most likely have to be implemented using background task functionality which isn’t part of the Expo SDK yet, so I’m thinking you’ll inevitably have to eject if you find a reliable third party library to handle it (or create your own native module).

Cheers,

Adam
