Adobe AIR lacks the background activity like the native apps have.
7:02:32 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 30, 2013
Please give this the love it deserves...
2:37:01 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 26, 2013
If this doesn't get added, PRONTO, it will be yet another example of Adobe doing their level best to hinder developers who have been loyal to their platform.
2:15:21 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 26, 2013
A serious blocker for selecting AIR as a technology for mobile projects.
10:27:36 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 23, 2013
This is clearly a needed feature. On Android especially it would be great if you could process some minor things in the background.
4:31:57 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 23, 2013
This is a required feature, please fix
4:30:32 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 23, 2013
I have an application built with Starling that requires a timer to run on background. It would be much help if this will be fixed otherwise I might have to drop Starling which will be very hard since my app is targets multiplatform.
4:08:15 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 23, 2013
This issue is critically important to several projects I am working on.
7:38:07 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 21, 2013
Behavior should be consistent.
12:11:31 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 20, 2013
This bug is seriously important. Please please please fix this ASAP.
3:01:27 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 14, 2013
This is such a shame. Please fix this bug.
1:11:38 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 14, 2013
Fix this now, it's very urgent...
2:20:38 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 12, 2013
Please fix this annoying bug.
1:47:33 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 10, 2013
It's a pretty horrible bug. Please sort it out.
11:25:28 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 8, 2013
Nobody will certainly like that an app stops working properly in background. It's urgent to fix this issue.
11:17:04 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 8, 2013
I am unable to play the next song when my app is in minimize(Deactivate) mode.
I request to Adobe Please fix this issue ASAP as this is an important issue for all background tasks.
11:04:15 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 8, 2013
Adobe is always a Market Grabber. But Due to Limitation of "no Background Task in minimize" a lot of Application are pending.
So I request Adobe to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
11:09:55 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 8, 2013
I don't need this feature in our current project, but it looks that it could be useful, when so many people request that.
12:58:54 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 6, 2013
This is a requirement and should work for AIR being considered a decent platform to develop on. Needs higher priority
5:58:57 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 6, 2013
This is a very important problem, most mobile AIR apps use render mode direct with Starling/Feathers nowadays, and background task completion is essential on mobile. Users expect photo uploads etc. to complete even if they get a call or switch to other apps.
4:48:19 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 6, 2013
Dear Adobe. Please look into this issue. I am stuck with an audio app - not able to change the song in the background.
1:27:40 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 25, 2013
I need background tasks while using stage3D for my app.
11:12:58 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 17, 2013
We would very much like this feature. We need to close our server connections when deactivated, but we get suspended before the operation completes. We are using Starling.
10:36:30 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 11, 2013
Why on hearth has this bug been deferred?
7:39:44 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 1, 2013
This is the reason why most developers will give up using AIR. Please, help us Adobe.
6:17:49 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 26, 2013
background mode dosnt work with renderMode=direct :(
last flex sdk 4.9.1 and air 3.7
Why status is closed ?
3:06:11 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 6, 2013
This is the what will make air for Mobile a solution
6:02:20 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 5, 2013
Need Stage3D and background processing
RICHARD BROOKES TEE
4:15:32 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 4, 2013
I'm wanting to make a void app and believe without this I wont be able to have it run in the background alerting the servers that its available to take calls. So please add.
4:20:35 AM GMT+00:00 May 31, 2013
+1 I need so much this feature
8:07:58 AM GMT+00:00 May 29, 2013
Yes, still persists with 3.7.1860
8:43:25 AM GMT+00:00 May 23, 2013
We need gpu mode for performance, but we also are crippled by not being able to get some background execution done on suspend. This makes the app appear very amateurish - not what I would think Adobe would like for air4ios apps...
7:26:33 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 15, 2013
weird not to have it from the very beginning
Arthy the crab
2:18:54 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 15, 2013
Scandalous... my app was refused because of that
10:01:45 PM GMT+00:00 Apr 13, 2013
This is an extremely necessary thing.
9:04:13 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 9, 2013
The inability to support background tasks while taking advantage of gpu/direct rendering is a significant problem for AIR app developers.
7:01:27 PM GMT+00:00 Apr 5, 2013
would be so useful to allow background tasks in direct mode. starling apps require it
6:27:19 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 27, 2013
background tasks AND gpu/direct rendering are BOTH very important features. So if I need background functionality I must drop cool and efficient rendering? come on, it doesn't make any sense...
10:25:18 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 22, 2013
Add background tasks when using renderMode=direct or gpu
3:37:53 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 8, 2013
Background tasks are essential
11:16:15 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 4, 2013
Important feature, fix it, please!
4:40:20 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 27, 2013
without this feature, it simply impossible to make a graphic application that can also run in background. This is essential.
10:05:24 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 22, 2013
ouch. why would this not work?
4:35:31 PM GMT+00:00 Feb 19, 2013
Then how are we supposed to use this if we are using direct mode? Should we stop using direct mode for this?
11:53:10 PM GMT+00:00 Feb 12, 2013
This is bad, all native language can run background process, what the heck air can't do that. and why all native can do that? cmon adobe, we need this feature
2:43:33 PM GMT+00:00 Feb 8, 2013
ADOBE! This has to be a big, bad joke! Please add this as a top priority "feature". I can't even imagine in my wildest dream how you can downplay this as not so important.
3:18:27 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 8, 2013
This is really a must have feature developing rich mobile apps these days.
8:03:23 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 7, 2013
It's clear that if chosing direct and using a framework like starling is the way to go, we need background tasks to work with that mode.
2:30:02 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 7, 2013
ca serais tres utile, niveau performance.
9:15:15 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 6, 2013
Would love to see it. +1
3:16:31 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 6, 2013
Seems like a fairly useful thing for an app to be able to do, given that every other native app has this ability.
And why does Adobe INSIST on closing these tickets with "AsDesigned" as the reason, drives me NUTS!!!
10:01:41 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 5, 2013
its mandatory since user take advantage of this.
6:27:11 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 5, 2013
This ability should power up our Air apps, and make them more competitive to native ones.
6:24:21 AM GMT+00:00 Feb 5, 2013
This should priority because the mojority of apps/games use direct mode
10:36:53 AM GMT+00:00 Jan 18, 2013
Using Starling we can finally produce mobile apps with good performance, but Background tasks like GPS events are crucial. Please, do something about this

6:50:38 PM GMT+00:00 Jan 14, 2013
Using starling to develop a good enough app. So background processing on direct mode is a must have feature for us.
5:42:45 PM GMT+00:00 Jan 9, 2013
Unfortunately, CPU mode is too slow to work on mobile. We need a GPU accelerating for value product and background behavior also. Please consider to add this feature at latest Flash version.
3:46:45 AM GMT+00:00 Dec 28, 2012
must have for performant applications
2:23:39 PM GMT+00:00 Dec 27, 2012
This is a must have and must be added at the latest when the support for renderMode GPU will be completely discontinued
7:21:45 AM GMT+00:00 Dec 26, 2012
If you force us to use direct render mode to get the camera to display correctly, then it is also necessary to be able to put the application in the background. With AIR 3.3, my application works as desired, but as of AIR 3.4, the application will die in the background without releasing its use of the location API.
4:37:34 AM GMT+00:00 Dec 3, 2012
We cannot release our app without the support of background processing as the app needs to automatically logout (as a security requirement by our customer) after a specified time after being sent to the background.
9:14:18 AM GMT+00:00 Nov 30, 2012
I totally agree with Flo131313. AIR for mobile is looking increasingly nonviable.
10:40:52 AM GMT+00:00 Nov 26, 2012
+1 it would be very useful to have.
9:48:55 PM GMT+00:00 Nov 25, 2012
Have begun designing apps that need to be able to run in background. Stumbled across this missing ability just recently and will now have to scrap all the work. Please make this a priority.
6:25:21 AM GMT+00:00 Nov 13, 2012
The only reason why we cannot use Adobe AIR for our applications.
7:41:25 PM GMT+00:00 Nov 12, 2012
Please please please. Need this enhancement.
4:34:12 AM GMT+00:00 Nov 4, 2012
Any demmand for mobile apps requires background tasking, and on the same hand Adobe encourages to use stage3D, so please, make background networking, rpocesses, possible in renderMode = direct, otherwise flash platform for mobile i useless for my clients
12:54:56 PM GMT+00:00 Oct 29, 2012
Adobe AIR is unless to make a app that work in background on IOS.
11:39:21 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 24, 2012
Disabling this feature in Direct mode makes it much less useful.
3:09:33 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 23, 2012
Just do it!
Just do it!
Just do it!
