    Welcome to the forums, Rescue9! I think this app idea sounds fun and although there have been a few offers to develop it, it doesn't look like that has happened yet. I think it is free game for you to experiment with. Have fun with it!

    I've not had any luck getting the programme mentioned but a friend of mine has just made a couple and I'm just going to make a few WAVs and give him them with a few instructions. I'll let you know how it goes. Could be a big time money spinner this

    Project Started

    I've created a project, though currently it's just a 'shell', and uploaded it to Github. I'll likely refine the way things are laid out when I have a bit more time as work today has been hectic. All here are encouranged to participate if you want. I'm still learning git, like everything else, so it might take me a while to get comfortable with pull requests and such. I do intend on ysing a 'git flow' style of development, and will save the master branch for Release versions only. you can find more informaion here: A successful Git branching model ยป nvie.com & Why aren't you using git-flow? - Jeff Kreeftmeijer

    The project is here : https://github.com/Rescue9/Lonely-Android

    Thanks for the wonderful idea... it's a good second project for me to work on. Bear in mind... while it might take some a day to bang out something like this, don't expect me to work very fast. As mentioned..... this is my second 'production quality' app.

    Still waiting on some support for this. I've setup the base classes and started implementation on the timer method, but am having trouble with the repeating function right now. It fires..... but its very random. I need to get it firing on a regular basis so I can program in the randomness. I know.... sounds wierd , but its necessary for he setup I'm designing.

    Feel free to get the Git and submit a pull request! Hint hint.

    Well.... setInexactRepeating wasn't inexact enough. I had to rewrite the randomization method. Problem now though is that I have to manually set the service to fire at those random intervals each time. Because of this... I have to find out some way to 'catch' the event so I can reset the random number each time without having to implement a wake lock.

    I need to put this project on hold a couple of months or so. I've a big project that I need to devote 100% of free time to. I'll keep an eye on the github though for pull requests.

    Still have not forgotten this. Everytime I need something fro Github I'm reminded of this project. I'm hoping by the end of November that I can come back and start on this again. Likely going ot have to rewrite it from scratch though as some of the information I've learned over the past few months has given me more insight into a possible solution.

    I love it that the idea has got a few people going. Quite surprised really but still very hopeful someone can make it happen. It has to happen eventually. I lost my phone since starting this thread but I've got a replacement now (no thanks to insurance) and I'm back wishing my phone would sigh every now and then. Keep it up and I'll keep believing in a brighter, more emotive world for me and my phone

    hi guys I found this thread a few weeks ago when I was googling around for ideas to use as my first Android app. I completed my take on it this week and have uploaded the app to Google Play:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=bullant.co.uk.app01.grumblebot01

    The app is called Grumblebot and will randomly play a sigh within the duration you set. So if someone wants to give it a go, let me know what you think :D

    Wow, that is really cool, coolmint! This idea has been kicking around for a while. I think I'm going to try it out. I hope the OP notices this. I think he will be thrilled that sometime gave it a go.
