So backgrounding for Instapaper/Bylilne/IM apps isn’t possible on iOS 4 then

12Jun10

Engadget are reporting that developers can submit apps that run in the background for iOS 4 now.  They seem to be confirming that IM/IRC type background apps still aren’t possible though.  Sadly, among the list of non-backgroundable (not really a word) are Instapaper and by extension Byline article and RSS reader apps as I suspected.

Developers are already complaining that they need more backgrounding capabilities, hopefully Apple are looking at it.
