iPhone's Development Limitations Could Hurt It In the Long Run

mysticwhiskey Re:No background tasks? (452 comments)

From what I can tell, there's no background task restriction in the OS X on the iPhone. It's just that 3rd-party apps created with the official SDK can't run in the background. Apps created with the unofficial development toolchain that are run on jailbroken iPhones/iPod Touches can run in the background though - like your Apollo AIM client.
