    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.

    ah right, I set the build platform to the latest version (Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ), so I hope that wasn't too restrictive?

    It may be. My phones are still ICS and will be for a little while I'm sure. Not too many phones have jellybean yet...even though it seems jellybean apps should work on ICS.

    Great news lad you're a hero. Unfortunately I'm on an s2 and I believe we're waiting till November for the update. Still fantastic work. Does it have the option to add your own sounds. So much potential with this app I can't wait to try it. Might see if any pals are on jelly.

    I wonder if it would work on ICS. Is there anyone you know who has ICS that you can ask them to try it to see if it works? I'm thinking if going into the play store and changing my device to a jellybean phone to see if it will work.

    So glad you noticed this. I think it is a funny idea and would love to try it out in the midst of my co-workers when no one is paying attention and then wondering where its coming from.

    That would be a pretty snazzy app! I would get it.
