Aion Siege Alarm

Aion Siege Alarm is an Android application that runs in the background of you Android mobile phone and sends you notifications before a siege.
It also has an activity that lets you chose which forts to monitor.
At the moment it has only been tested on a HTC Desire phone.

How to use it

  • The menu key brings up a menu where 'Settings' is the only option today. Other options are in the planning stage.
  • Long press on a fortress sets a notification trigger for that fortress.
  • Notification triggers are indicated with a red drop shadow.
  • When a fortress is vulnerable, or about to be, the background color turns dark red.
  • Every time the main view gets focus a refresh is done. That means like opening and closing the menu, going to home screen and back. There is no need to change server to get a refresh.
  • The data feed will only be used once every hour. All other refresh will be done using a local database.
  • The data feed will be read a short random time after every full hour, in order to avoid connection spikes.
