    I am a night worker, and every morning at 7:30am when leaving work, I phone my daughter to make sure she is awake. So she will be on-time for school. The problem is, sometimes if it is busy in work, I am late leaving.

    So, I need an app that will allow me to record a message, and then automatically call my daughter and play the message to her, at a specific time.

    Just Like a Wake-Up Call in a hotel.

    Not trying to be sarcastic.
    Why would an alarm not work?

    I was thinking that myself. On my HTC EVO the alarm doesn't stop ringing until either I shut it off or the battery goes dead.

    On my old phone it shut off after 60 seconds so the first time I heard it go off, I figured blah, it will stop. About 5 minutes later I was throwing things across the room at my phone. I may have been hung over too, cough. :D

    That said you can set the alarm to the "ring tone" so if you CALLING wakes her up, the phone ringing non-stop should too.

    ye, I know that in theory one of the several alarm clocks that she own should be adequate.
    but, as she is a pubescent teen, the only reliable way I have of waking her up on time is calling her, and letting it ring until she wakes and answers the phone.

    plus, I thought it might be a cool app.

    ok, when my brother was in high school, he used to ditch class once in awhile. When he did, the school computer would call the house and it would keep calling until someone answered. He would always call me to see if I caught the phone call.

    However, if our answering machine caught the call, it would catch most of the message.

    So I'm with DesireMe on this one. After a few rings, voice mail would just grab the call. How would you guarantee your daughter answered the call? I like the idea though.

    Years ago, when everyone had pagers, I wrote program that would call a persons pager endlessly at various intervals. I used it to harass my friends. So an app for this should be doable.

    well really good points, but i do think there is a way where you can check whether a person received the call or went into voicemail. I think that would be the critical part of this application.
