    Default Selectively Suspended Apps?

    I was just thinking; wouldn't it be nice if in BB10 there were some sort of Play/Pause or tick/untick box on the active frames which allowed to control whether specific apps act as Showcase or Default mode?

    Maybe this could be one for 10.1?

    What do you think?

    That part is left to to the developer of the app. for example if you have a calculator app you do not need it to run when it is minimized, but if you have an file storage app you would want it to run in the background.

    If i have a music app, i might want the option either letting it run in the background or pausing the music when minimized. So yeah it would be nice to see RIM do more with the Active Frames.

    Qaxl, it looks like in BB10, the idea is that it's up to the developer to provide you with that option.

    I think relatively few apps would actually benefit from having the option to do that, so putting a control for it right in the main UI wouldn't be a good idea.
