[DONE]Longer than 7 day intervals for repeating alarms

From Matt on 2016/05/25 13:44:46 +0000

I have 4 day on/4 day off work schedule, and so I need an alarm app that will allow me to set alarms that repeat every eight days.

I currently use Gentle Alarm which seems to be the only app that has this feature. However, the app is very ugly and hasn’t been updated in over a year. The developer appears to be incommunicado and I am concerned that the alarms won’t work properly in Android N.

I’ve been looking around at different alarm apps, and Sleep as Android seems to be the best one around, but it’s just missing this one feature that I’m desperate for. Is there any way this can be introduced?

Non-weekly repeat schedule would make this app for me. I have also struggled to find anything that meets my shift pattern alarm needs on both Android and iOS.

As it turns out I actually have the same work schedule as Matt above but a simple 'repeat every X days' would work for most none 7 day weeks.

E.g. I need to wake up at 0700 on day 1, 2, 4 and 5 - I could therefore set up a separate alarm for each day and then set to repeat every 8 days. (I've just seen Matt has already commented with the same 4 alarm setup).

Shameless bumping this!

I work on shifts that begin on different times of day every day, but the cycle repeats every 10 days. Being able to create a set of alarms that each repeat every 10 days, like I can on Google Calendar, would satisfy my needs so I don’t have to remember to turn alarms on / off or adjust alarm times for the next day.

Hi, it is a bit older topic, but just in case someone still follows this feature request - the new BETA will have the option to repeat every 2-30 days in the non-weekly mode.
