I had my own personal reminder apps for years. This reminder apps is greatly improving my schedule in workings and personal. I use the apps to remind me when to pay rent, when is the meeting held, and so on, day to day.
This is a simple reminder apps simply managing a list of tasks. I can configure a task name, start end time (hhmm format, such as 1000), a reminder text, then enter enabled field as 1 (To enable 1, To disable 0). Then I would configure the system check for the reminder every 10 min. If the current time drop between the start end time, it will simply remind me by sending an Apple APN Notification or Google GCM Notification.
I did built an outbounds call features last year using Freeswitch Outbounds SIP. But it is not user friendly as, I have to open the SIP Phone all the time in order to receive the outbounds call. I wonder why Apple do not have SIP built in into system core, like Samsung Phone.
Since this morning I just figure out to make outbounds calls to landline or cellphone from Freeswitch, therefore I would like to enhance my personal reminder apps with outbounds call feature.
When the time arrive, it will try contact me and announce the reminder text I configure that task.
It is not feasible to call me every 10 min, so I made it to have the task to only call me one time and it will going to sleep after that.
When creating the task, if enter “enabled” as 1, it will perform usual action, notify me via Apple APN. If enter as 2, it will make outbounds call service. After made calls, update back to 0 to disable the task.
