ios4 multitasking

ios4 multitasking

Is there any plans to allow the app to be suspended when another app is opened in ios4? It seems to simply drop any open sessions as soon as another application is opened.

RE: ios4 multitasking

dmaunder, this is planned for a future release and we are looking into it. Note that when we add suspend support the RDP/VNC connections will eventually get disconnected and you will be back to the home screen since iOS4 does not allow us to maintain a TCP connection to the server while we are suspended.

Ok, but could you offer the option to automatically reconnect when the program is unsuspended?

This is a good suggestion. We'll definitely consider it for a future release.

RE: ios4 multitasking

I do not understand, because my telnet application does not loose the connection with the server when I switch from one app to the other. Is there a technical issue with rdp?

RE: ios4 multitasking

The problem is that the TCP connection times out after a while, but this would not happen if you switch back after a short time.

RE: ios4 multitasking

I was never able to keep the rdp session open even by switching quickly between my telnet app for example and your app. I always go back to the home screen (with the landscape/portrait issue mentioned in another thread) and the session is dropped. I'm not sure therefore that it is only a timeout issue.

RE: ios4 multitasking

You are correct, we will enable multi-tasking on a future release so that you can quickly switch between applications. I was just pointing out that even when that is enabled, the connections will drop if you switch away from PocketCloud for too long.

Do you have an ETA for multitasking? I can't wait, it would make a lot of sense.

Yes, this would be a HUGE improvement to an already terrific app.
