Description

The apps that run on a device are one of the biggest factors that determine its battery life. With this in mind, we designed the Windows app lifecycle for maximum battery life. But that doesn’t mean the app model precludes background activities. This talk explains the background scenarios supported in Windows and shows you how to write background tasks. It also covers best practices for authoring background tasks so that the connected standby lifetime of the device doesn’t suffer.
