Re: Can headless application starts Air application ?

I'm not sure this post belongs to Air Devemopment forum...

 

Let me explain what I wanted to do :

I have an Air application that run on Android, iOS and BB10. I try to find a way to launch this application at phone startup.

I don't think it's possible with AIr, is it ?

 

So I tried to develop a native headless app that would start at phone startup and that will launch my Air application with no luck.

 

Do you guys think is it possible ?

You can use push to start an app. So you native app would call your server that would send a push to the same device for your app to open. The headless app can only run for about 20 seconds, so this might be good. If you make it generic, so the user can pick which apps they want started, it might get wider use.

Hi jtegen, thanks for your reply.

 

Yeah this could definitely be a solution, can you tell me more about a server sending a push to a device ?

I've not done it, but the I've seen the API being pretty simple. I would check out the Push API and post questions to that forum.
