After playing with GCM (now FCM in Firebase) and reading the Jasonette post about APN on github, I realized we also really need local notifications with schedule (alarm), think of a calendar reminder (not writing to your calendar though).
It works offline, is initiated by the app, not a server, hence not limitations or service_not_available.
Ethan, is it possible?
I can help on the Android side if needed.
Are there others interested in this neat feature?
