    wow, this is a pretty awesome utility. With Beejive, I get a vibrate + ringer when the app is closed. If this doesn't affect my battery too much, it's definetly a must have until apple pushes the next firmware

    Wow, this is the best thing to show up on Cydia for a while now. Great work! Thanks!

    Paired with Palringo and working perfectly. I knew I didn't have to get beejive for $15.99 and glad I didn't. What a waste that would have been!

    I just thanked you (on your first post) even though I have not DL it yet. But let me ask you: if you want to stop an app running in the background, what do you have to do?
    Go back into the app and hold the home button again, that will disable it.

    I never thought this would be possible to make App Store apps still run in the background. Wow! This is fantastic. I hope it's safe and works well.

    what types of messenger services are you all using. All of the sudden palringo isn;t working for me. Maybe it never did and I am a classic case of wishful thinking lol

    not even one thanks. come on fellas, just tap it.
    Did you make this app? Without your post, I would have found it myself when I made my Cydia rounds. If you did make this app, Thanks. If not, you don't really deserve a pat on the back.

    Installed it and it works exactly as you'd expect. Palringo runs well in the background for MSN.

    Someone posted it to Digg... Digg - Run iPhone apps in the background!

    I just downloaded it. How is the battery usage if you leave an app like aim running in the background?

    there should be an option when u press the home button to enable or disable, because after you press the home button the first time to have it run in the background and later go back into the app to answer an IM then press home again it will automatically disable and close!!!

    Looks like you definitely have to disable Intelliscreen to get this working. Hopefully they fix this.

    are you on edge (not 3G or wifi) with your IM client? zThis might be why

    Just tested on wifi and 3G with beejive running in the background and I could receive calls without any trouble.

    Could someone else test edge for me?

    Yeah, doesn't Edge not work with data and calls at the same time? So if you have constant data, calls may go right to voicemail.

    Also, for those using Intelliscreen, If your using the newest version (beta) with the performance booster, I noticed that by turning that off that backgrounder works. Should work as a temp solution at least.
