Continuous alarm for Prowl alerts on iPhone app?

I'm using the Prowl API email address to send an alert to the iPhone app (using iPhone 3GS). Rather than only making a single sound, I would like my phone to continuously buzz or sound so I don't miss the alarm. Is this possibly in any shape or form?

Thanks, Chirag

It is not currently possible, but it seems to have become a pretty common request. I'll see if I can get it into the API for the next version.

I am another user that would like to see the same functionality for our clients who use Prowl.

I think this would be a great option to have.

In addition, would it be possible to add an option to ignore the Silent Mode setting (switch on side of device) when the notification priority is "Emergency"? If I have my iPhone on silent mode, I'd still like to be alerted to emergency notifications.

Big +1 on the vibrate override. Would like emergency messages to ignore both the vibrate and the DND iPhone settings if it is possible - does Apple allow developers to do that?
