R – NSTimer iPhone Question


I have seen a similar answer for my question but I would just make it clear. My Application needs sends an event to be fired even when the application is not active. I think it cant be done using a NSTimer. My question is that do I need to run the timer in some other runloop other than the main run loop to deliver the runloop, so that it will get delivered even when the application is inactive.

Best Solution

If you mean when the application is closed, you can't. iPhone applications terminate and there are no background threads left open when the user returns to the main page.
