Is there any way at all to have a mobile app simply resume rather than restart?

Jonathan,

This works in V8/V9. I don't make a copy.

1) In the app bundle look in the folder ==>"Tools/Runtime/iOS" set all the
folders to read/write.
2) Edit the setting.plist in each of the folders and change
UIApplicationExitsOnSuspend key value to "False" (or like I do...delete the
key all together)

Apple has never complained. But... Ticking the "Background Audio" option
sets UIBackgroundModes key to "audio". You will get rejected if you app does
not play background audio.

It looks like the plist hack is not available in version 8. 

Choosing background audio works - but that means I need to have a plausible
reason for having background audio or Apple reviewers might ding the app.

What a pain - why not just allow it to work the way other apps work?
