I think until the threading changes in LC5.5.2 this would have been fairly experimental. Mainly if there was some script blocking operation going on when the app was suspended then iOS might have been unhappy. Now that those operations are on a separate thread it shouldn't be such a problem. Still if your app is in a wait without messages it won't get notified of the suspension until after the wait ends. There's also a time limit on execution unless you start a background task which at the moment you would need an external for.
