Is possible to create a local reminder with expo?

Hi we are trying to create a kind of “medicine reminder app” with expo but we found that expo doesn’t have background processes support.

Is possible to create a reminder where we can schedule and send a notification to the user (like a cron) even when the app is closed or in the background?

Thanks!

Hey @gvinfomed,

We do offer the BackgroundFetch and TaskManager modules that may be of use to you.
https://docs.expo.io/versions/v38.0.0/sdk/background-fetch/
https://docs.expo.io/versions/v38.0.0/sdk/task-manager/

Cheers,
Adam

Thanks

is possible to use task manager/background fetch even if the app is closed by the user?

Cheers!
