APP working while minimised... possible!?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

@Ashley

Hello,
Is it possible to add feature where we could chose that our app works in background on mobile platforms while minimised?
I would like to implement some geolocation features and notifications acording to them, and some notifications according to certain date & time that user selects like a reminder.

Thank you!!! :D

I am trying to use: Location Updates While Your App Is in the Background
https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/LocationAwarenessPG/CoreLocation/CoreLocation.html

Anyone know is this possible?

You probably need to use cordova and add "background service plugin":

The overall design process is not fundamental. Besides, I didn't try it before. Just want to share the info with you.

It works good under iOS, but Apple will reject the app using this plugin if you are trying to publish it to App Store. For iOS currently there is no beautiful solution for apps to run general purpose code constantly in background. You'll need a specific excuse to do that like audio streaming, GPS tracking...
