You have to make sure you check it, save the config, and register (if you hadn't already).

It should work...

Ah, sorry, I know where the confusion is.  We implement a best practice.  The new push comes in, we launch our app to the background, process the push, and then exit.  That's why you don't see the app still open.

There's currently no way to bring an app to the foreground in Cascades I don't believe.  But, you could ask on the Cascades forum.  

 

You could argue that, in general, it's functionality you might not want in an OS.  You don't want a whole bunch of apps coming to the foreground at one time.  It makes for an unpleasant user experience for a user.  As a user, you want to control which apps are in the foreground.  That's why we launch the app to the background (and have it show up in the running apps grid).  The user can then bring it to the foreground if they'd like to.
