Alarm Clock Pro adds Background Alarms

iHandySoft has released an update to its popular Alarm Clock Pro app adding the ability for users of multitasking-capable iOS 4 devices to receive alarms from the app in the background. Alarm Clock Pro 1.1 provides support for local notifications allowing users to receive sound notifications even when the app is not actively running. The update also fixes a bug where the date picker may not display correct AM/PM status when editing alarms on iOS 4 devices. Alarm Clock Pro continues to support all of the features from prior versions, including an on-screen digital clock, flashlight feature, sleep timer, snooze mode, vibrate mode and multiple clock themes. Users can choose from one of seven built-in alarm sounds or choose a song or playlist to use as an alarm. Alarm Clock Pro is available from the App Store for $1 and is a free update for current users. A free version is also available that provides only built-in alarm sounds, limited themes and does not include flashlight mode or background alarm support.

I want to create alarm,

Once

- (void)scheduleAlarmForDate:(NSDate*)theDate
{
UIApplication* app = [UIApplication sharedApplication];

NSArray*  oldNotifications = [app scheduledLocalNotifications];

// Clear out the old notification before scheduling a new one.

if ([oldNotifications count] > 0)

  [app cancelAllLocalNotifications];

  // Create a new notification.

  UILocalNotification* alarm = [[[UILocalNotification alloc] init] autorelease];

  if (alarm)
  {
  alarm.fireDate = theDate;
  alarm.timeZone = [NSTimeZone defaultTimeZone];
  alarm.repeatInterval = 0;
  alarm.soundName = @“alarmsound.caf”;
  alarm.alertBody = @“Time to wake up!”;
  [app scheduleLocalNotification:alarm];
  }
}
Date set alarm is activated at the time.

However, sound is specified in the sound does not play only once.

I would like to play with it infinite.

Is there a way,?
