Did you know that the notifications in the Beeminder Android app work even if you’re in airplane mode? (Downside: if you dispatch the beemergency elsewhere the reminders will keep coming on Beedroid until the app has connectivity again to find out that the goal isn’t actually in the red.) In the iOS app the notifications are initiated by Beeminder’s server so if you’re offline you won’t get them.
Possible sad news: Beedroid needs some maintenance to keep working well on newer phones and Android is making it harder to deliver notifications like our zeno alerts reliably. It might be a lot of work to work around that, so…
How bad would it be if Beedroid’s notifications only happened if you were online?
- Totally fine since I’m rarely offline and wouldn’t count on offline notifications anyway
- The robustness is cool and it would be a shame to lose that but realistically not a huge deal
- I would shed real tears
- I would pay for a more expensive premium plan for that feature
