    Feature request - additional alarms

    The app knows when our departure time is, when our show time is, and we’ve told it when our van time is. It seems to me that it’s a short step to the one more alarm we need, which is when to wake up. It would be cool if we could set a default delta number of minutes, so that the alarm always goes off 60 minutes or 90 minutes or whatever prior to van time.

    Feature request - additional alarms

    Wait, isn’t that what the Alert Prior field is for?

    You could use it for that. I use it as a 30 minute heads up prior to van time. But maybe I’m weird — I set multiple alarms on multiple devices. I have some alarms set to wake me up, and others that mark various points along the countdown to van time.

    If you are on Android, check out MacroDroid. I have a button that I created on my notification bar, that, when pressed, will start a timer. So when my alarm goes off, I tap that button and 30 minutes later my phone announces "It's x:xx AM/PM, you have 30 minutes remaining sir." It then does this again 10 minutes prior to van time. All of this is customizable of course. I uploaded my macro template - you can find it in the MacroDroid templates by searching for "X minutes remaining". (I've tried to get the timer to run when the alarm actually goes off so that I don't have to manually press a button but I haven't figured that out yet.) Oh, and I created another button that will cancel the macro if desired.

    Alas, I’m an Apple boy. Sounds cool, though!
