Anyone fancy writing a potentially simple app?

I've got one really really really annoying thing with my Touch Dual (maybe Windows Mobile in general) and it's doing my head in.

Whenever the phone is in standby, it doesn't alert me to a low, or critical battery. So the first thing you know is when you go to use it and take it out of standby, then it beeps at you. Or evne worse, when you go to use it and it's actually flat.

Is there someone out there that can write an app that checks the battery state every couple of mins and if it's low bring the phone out of standby and alert you.
It doesn't even have to conform to the sound profiles, just anything so I know the battery is low.

There must be a way for apps to run in standby, as the phone wakes up when it receives a call or message.

Hopefully someone can help as this is a major flaw in the design. I went to use the phone last night and found out the battery was flat, with no notification. Luckily there was no calls or texts missed. Not good when you're in a support job role.

Cheers

Hi Griff,

I think that it can be done. PM me or contact on MSN.
