    SJ: Multitask!

     

    MNT: for real? or just transparent app restart?  hmmm... it seems multitask is implemented via 7 pre-defined services that "background apps" can subscribe to

     

    #1 Background audio service (Pandora)

    #2 Background VOIP service (Skype)

    #3 Background GPS service (Tom Tom)

    #4 Push notifications (not thru Apple servers)

    #5 Local notifications

    #6 Task completion (uploading a file to Flickr)

    #7 Fast app switching
