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

1) Go to the Applications folder
2) Right click on the LC app you are using and select "Show Package
Contents"
3) Navigate to the "Tools/Runtime/iOS" folder
4) Right click on all the device/simulator folders one at a time and select
"Get Info"
5) At the bottom click on the "Read only" to the right of your account name
and select "Read & Write"
6) Repeat 5 for all device/simulator folders
7) In each of the device/simulator folders edit the setting.plist file.
8) To edit... right click the setting.plist file and select "Open With" and
then "Other..." and select "TextEdit.app".
9) You will get a warning that the file is locked. Choose the Unlock option.

10) Either change UIApplicationExitsOnSuspend key value to "False" or like I
do delete the key all together(2 lines)
11) repeat 8-10 for setting.plist in each of the device/simulator folders.
12) Fire up LC and make an iOS app.

I don't actually know how to do any of the steps for this - would be easy on
a pc. Researching it now.
