Is there any information about running an app in the background? I following your gps lesson and was wondering if it is possible to have the app run in the background. Then when you reach a particular proximity an alert will post on the top bar, like facebook, I believe it is possible through traditional android SDK. Can this be produced with processing? Thanks

Hi David, take a look at the Android life cycle to understand how an apps is paused in the background http://developer.android.com/training/basics/activity-lifecycle/index.html The book touches on the life cycle in relation to Processing. Best, Daniel
