Starting an App on device startup for BB10

Hi, 

 

I was creating an application for BB10. 

 

The application needs to start when the device starts up and (preferrably) stay in background. 

 

I found this http://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/rim_background_element_1265316_11.html  but there does not seem to be anything similar to this for BB10. Is there any such functionality that is exposed for BB10 ? or is there any work around for this. 

 

Thanks in advance,

Prashanth

I don't believe there is any way to have your app startup automatically like a service.  The user must run it.

This is true although they said in Amsterdam that they're looking at adding this facility in the future

 

Sadly right now you're out of luck

Check the native roadmap regularly, it won't happen in WebWorks until "Headless apps" has been delivered:
