Continue to run the app in thumbnail mode



I have noticed that my app is suspended when it is in thumbnail.


I received the asleep signal... but it seems that app isn't scheduled.


My app downloads/uploads files ; so the transfer is interrupted Smiley Sad


How can I process ?

Re: Continue to run the app in thumbnail mode

In the short term, I believe you can just specify the <permission>run_when_background</permission> in your bar-descriptor file and you won't get halted when thumbnailed.

Longer term, there's supposed to be a download manager service of some kind, which apps may be required to use, but I don't think we've got any details about that yet.
