    Headless apps won't work the way you think they will.

    CB has some good articles explaining this.

    Apps will only run for 20 seconds in the background, waiting to be triggered by a certain event.

    10.2.1 is meant to bring long-running headless apps.

    Let's hope so. I also bought apps that I am not using until they can run headless.

    I'm looking for a translation app so I can finally figure out what "coming soon" means. Anyone got a headless app that can translate berry-speak on the fly. No, not a headless ceo, we already have that!

    They will implement multiple types of headless app triggers they said that would eliminate the need for long running headless apps.

    This is where leaks can be an issue . 10.2 has not dropped officially yet. Yet we have app demands for 10.2 apps and now 10.2.1?????

    No app will officially run for 10.2 till 10.2 drops. Not leakes. 10.2.1.... let's wait for 10.2

    10.2 isn't here and true Headless isn't here.

    Technically, they are still 'coming' but both are ready and complete - available to developers and working beautifully.

    Both would be here today (i.e. In your hands) if you could wake up your carrier .

    Agreed OP, I feel like I wasted $4.99 on BeBuzz Pro not not mention a host of others. I sometimes wonder........nevermind, I will keep that comment to myself. I'm not a happy camper concerning this, and I'm tired of "coming soon", as it was said earlier in this thread, exactly what does that mean or better yet what does it mean to BLACKBERRY

    No way man. I *need* 6 battery level indicators on my screen.

    *edit: ok I can only see four at a time, but I can scroll down to the next row! Seriously devs, if you're reading this... can you give the active frame something besides the battery %? Or a choice? I dunno... I'm just rambling.

    Actually, headless apps are there now, though the implementation probably won't work for a lot of the stuff we're talking about here.

    BB has deliberately kept limits on the number of events that can launch headless apps, and the duration they can run. Why? Because there's a concern that if too many apps are running in the background, that it could degrade performance.

    Add to that, developers have to submit to an evaluation process which takes more time and effort than many of them are willing to go to at the moment.

    Like everything else, it's going to take a little more time...

    They should have had this stuff in order prior to the release of the z10. At one point I felt the Op's pain.

    FWIW:

    Flip Shush has been approved for "Long Running" headless and works the same way as legacy BlackBerry OS background apps. It autostarts when the phone boots up and stays running forever (longer than 20 seconds!) unless you kill it with App Manager.

    I can also verify that it works just fine with 10.2.0.xxx (I'm running 10.2.0.1767 on Z10)

    Here's a link to the Flip Shush thread post with more of an explanation: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...ml#post9363261

    @BlackBerryDev: Sending out approval emails for Long Running Headless Apps and Hub Integration. At least 50 sent today with more coming.

    They're not giving them away easily but they are being given away once the proper triggers are used. More headless apps triggers will be coming too to prevent long running headless apps.

    10.2 has headless apps.

    Now it is up to developers to use the tools that Blackberry provided.
