I know backgrounding apps (whether or not to closing them, etc) has been discussed, but what I'm wondering is if there is any way to keep an app running in the background, even after other apps that have been opened "push" it into automatically closing. One of my apps, LocationMinder, uses GPS to alert you when you're near a certain pre-marked place on the map. It has to be running (either in the foreground or background) for it to work. I have had several occasions where I haven't opened the app in a few days, and other apps that I have opened in the meantime have caused the memory to fill up to the point that the app gets closed by the iOS. When this happens, I no longer get alerts from this app. Is there any way to force an app to not close, aside from simply trying to remember to open it once or twice a day to keep it in the most recently used apps? Is this an iOS issue or an app issue?
