I am trying to figure out the best way for me to add scheduler like functionality (not a calendar) to an app. I am looking for a cron tab like functionality. what I need is for my app to behave as if it 'taps' to the phone's clock and, for example, send an alert to the user every hour.
my app also uses phonegap so I guess I can send notifications through it but whats the proper way to implement the scheduler part?
I dont mind going native (phonegap) or sencha for this task.
all suggestions are welcomed!
