    Does icenium support any background services for iOS? For instance, Bluetooth, audio, location based services (to name a few) 

    Is there a list that states what support exists and if not, when this functionality may be coming. 
    Specifically interested in location and Bluetooth capability.  (I've tested these out and seen that the app enters a suspended state so unless I'm wrong, these are not supported)

    Hello Jason,

    The APIs for bluetooth support are not exposed in Cordova and as far as we're aware, there isn't an officially-supported Cordova plug-in that provides access to the Bluetooth radios on iOS devices.
    Audio and geolocation are both supported and you can check the respective samples we provide:

    We're currently working on support for pluginstall-compatible Cordova plug-ins, so if there is a Bluetooth plug-in available till then, you would be able to utilize it.

    You can see a list of what is supported in the Cordova API Reference.

    All the best,

    Hi Steve

    Thanks again. I've been through the samples but I guess my question is aimed more towards these services running in a app suspended state. For instance, If my app goes to the background by hitting the home key, the geo location data stops being sent to my app. There are ways to subscribe to this via native code and I'm wondering if there is a supported way through the icenium framework.

    Hello Jason,

    There is an option in the Info.plist where you can specify and declare that your app needs to receive location change notifications in the background. We currently do not expose this setting, but it would be included in our May release (comming up on 8th of May), so stay tuned.
