A proposed lifecycle solution from bug #1502628:

I would like to be able to send a notification to the user after a set amount of time. Additionally, I would like the user to be able to respond to the notification with a couple of buttons (e.g. Yes/No or similar).

This could also be used by the clock app for the timer functionality.

Currently, this is only possible with the push notification service. But, as a developer, I do not want to implement the complex push notification service or have to run a server for this simple use case, and as a user, I do not want to depend on network connectivity for this functionality.

This could be solved with some kind of interface to anacron that can schedule a notification to appear at a specified time.
