    I got that mobile app from the appstore and from my understanding apple does not allow apps to run in the background on the ipod touch/iphone running 2.x.x firmware. Now I was just wondering was this also true for 1.x.x firmware, I can't remember if agile messenger would update on the springboard when a message came in. Just curious so if someone could answer this and ease my curiosity that would be great. Thank you in advance.

    That's another reason NOT to have 2.0. 1.1.X FTW!

    Thanks, just a little bit of research and wanted to make sure I was right. Kinda sucks that apple would take out the ability to run apps in the background. That is pretty important to those messenger apps. Oh how I miss agile messenger and fring! Both great chat apps in my mind. There are perks to 2.x.x firmware but I do miss much from the 1.1.x firmware

    insomnia doesnt let apps run in the background, it only disables wifi being switched off when the screen is off. it basicly lets you still ssh into your ipod with the screen off theoretically saving battery life...

    atm it is IMPOSSIBLE to run apps in the background. apple stopped this from working and then decided to use push notifications instead although these done work for instant messenging apps atm...
