The thread was opened to ask how to perform a task on an Asha 501 device every 6 hours, using a background process. The problem, as it was soon realized, is that background processes are not supported for 3rd party apps on Nokia Asha, and that push notifications (which can restart the app periodically) require user acknowledgement.
His solution uses alarms to open the app periodically. While not the perfect solution, this may be useful option in some scenarios.
We selected this question because we thought that it demonstrates that, while sometimes the platform has a limitation, the experience of the community members enables them to find alternative solutions and help others. And that’s what this community is all about. Helping sharing solutions, ideas or just possible alternatives to a specific problem.
