Background Proof, Termination Proof Timer, Reboot Proof Timer.
ZGCountDownTimer is powered by
NSTimer to work as a full CountDown Timer.
The best thing about ZGCountDownTimer is that it work acrross Background App, Background Termination and even Device Rebbot.
If you want it to work across Background App, Background Termination and even Device Rebbot. You need to call these two method:
// To get a timer. + (ZGCountDownTimer *)countDownTimerWithIdentifier:(NSString *)identifier; // Start using the timer. - (void)setupCountDownForTheFirstTime:(void (^)(ZGCountDownTimer *timer))firstBlock restoreFromBackUp:(void (^)(ZGCountDownTimer *timer))restoreFromBackup;
else it would be just a regular stopWatch the only work across Background App.
Control the CountDown timer is as easy as it say:
- (BOOL)startCountDown; - (BOOL)pauseCountDown; - (void)resetCountDown;
Also, there is two help method to help you get the awesome
NSString with or without customize
+ (NSString *)getDateStringForTimeInterval:(NSTimeInterval )timeInterval; + (NSString *)getDateStringForTimeInterval:(NSTimeInterval )timeInterval withDateFormatter:(NSNumberFormatter *)dateFormatter;
For more detail please see the damo app, or read the docs in the .h file.
