I have recently joined this VERY useful community. This is my first post here.
Well, lets get to my point:
I want to make an application in Android, that will sound an alarm based on the location provided by the GPS.
Example, consider I am travelling from a place 'A' to 'B' by say a train, and the place A and B being far, there are chances of one falling asleep on the journey.
So what I want is an alarm, that will ring when I am at 'x' kms. from the destination. ( The value 'x' will vary, and will be specified by the user )
i.e. in short, given the destination, i need an alarm that will ring when a person reaches at the specified distance of 'x' kms. from his destination.
What I have thought for this is:
We need to check if the location of the person is within the "circle" formed by considering the destination as center and radius of the given value 'x' kms.
Another point is that, since travel is by a vehicle, a timer would be needed to do the checking periodically.
So this is what I am trying to make. And I really need much help for it because, I am very new to Android
I do not have any experince with developing applications for it.
I have only tried out around 3-4 examples. ( Includes Hello World, A simple UI for Login n Password, etc)
So, I would be really grateful if someone helps me out here.
I want to get more experience with development on Android, so that I would be able to create more useful applications on it.
