I would like my Smartphone to play certain sound tracks at certain hours each day (quite similar to military-style buggle calls for waking up, assembly, lunchtime and so on). But I want the device to play the sound without asking me to confirm that I have heard it. No "Dismiss" / "Snooze" / "OK" buttom. Simply the sound at the scheduled time played once and nothing more.

Which application would do it? - Preferably a GNU program. Or any other kind of free software without advertising (it seems an odd petition, but we Linux users are used to that).

Tasker would be a nice solution - it's not free, but it's very handy in a lot of other scenarios too.

  • Thanks, +1. Sorry I forgot to add that is should be a free app.

  • Follow up to the tasker tag-wiki then, which also names a few free alternatives. But though I know that "we Linux users" (pledging guilty ;) are used to "free software": I've bought Tasker after trying its free version for 3 days. It's worth every cent, and I've never regretted that decision (but would have regretted deciding otherwise). You don't know the powers of the dar... oops, of that app – I bet it can even make a coffee :)
