    I tried to use it with the built-in youtube app, but it stops workng although if you re-open, it will be paused at the point where you pressed the home button. Do you guys know what apps work with the background app?

    Does your phone crash if you have many apps in the background?

    The backgrounder app sucks in my opinion. I couldn't run more than one app at a god damn time anyway because you get the stupid memory low error, in which case backgrounder stops working. The sole reason I jailbroke my phone was to run BeejiveIM in the background with backgrounder. It worked, but as soon as I launched say, the MySpace app, I'd go back to Beejive and it would boot up again and not resume from where I left off.

    um no. this is a memory limitation of the vastly underpowered iphone. no app can fix this. best you're going to get is backgrounder.

    Geez come on!! U always have the opinion to run only one app usong thr backgrounder! I always have the im+ running on the backround while listening to music OR surfing the web. NO u can't have em all open of course. But it works really great if u force quit the apps that ate not needed to run in the background
