How to execute the functions when app is killed in Ionic1


#1

I want to make an alarm app without using local or remote push notifications.How to achieve this , currently I am trying it using interval.


#2

You can’t. If the app is not running, there is no way for it to run any code. You can only trigger it from the outside via push notifications.


#3

Thanks for the reply , so is it impossible to make a alarm app using Ionic ?


#4

It is pretty much impossible to do what you asked for at all without special proviledges for your app - like the official alarm apps. You can look into background mode and processes, services, but that will be quite painful with Ionic/Cordova.

You need to be thinking in terms of notifications.

I believe (though never done it) you can have the device send notifications to itself, or a remote service pushing the notification.

Think Google Calendar for example.

I’m an Ionic 3 guy so can’t offer much advice other than - look at this plugin…
