Exclamation Without JailBreaking, Can Apps run in background?

Is there any way, without JB, that you can have apps run in the backround, more similar to android.

Also, going between the note 2 and iphone 5. I love the screen and multitasking on the note 2 but like the simplicity of ip5.

Any suggestions?

What are you wanting to achieve?

Apps like Spotify and Pandora play music in the background.

Dropbox uploads in the background.

Lots of apps do tasks like this in the background, some YouTube apps play audio in the background.

iOS already can run apps in the background. Be more specific on what your asking.

No, you won't be able to truely run an app in the background as if its running in the foreground. Only Apple's sanctioned background tasks are allowed, such as playing audio, finishing up a download or upload, location pinging etc
