Multitasking in iOS 4 more info (required read) June 16, 2010

This is the first time I read this, and it is very interesting

But, there’s more. A slightly tenuous one Apple notes is “push notifications”. I don’t class this as multitasking; it is push notifications – completely separate. Remember, a year ago, Apple were saying which was a blatant lie that push notifications were instead of multitasking, so they can’t be the same thing. Local notifications are, and that’s the next service. This allows push-notification-like alerts that do not need a server running, thus no internet connection is needed either. Therefore, alarms and timers can background making a noise/alert when the time ends, TVGuide.co.uk can alert you of your next episode of Glee extremely easily. Heck, even We Rule could make a noise when your crops are done. This is a multi-purpose service; it doesn’t have one set function unlike the first three, and has many applications.
