Description Ralph Jourdan Barro 2014-01-17 16:23:33 UTC
Hello Xamarin,

I am trying to save a data that comes with silent push notification payload.
It works when the app is running but not when the app is closed.
My code looks like this:

public override void DidReceiveRemoteNotification (UIApplication application, NSDictionary userInfo, Action<UIBackgroundFetchResult> completionHandler)
  completionHandler (UIBackgroundFetchResult.NewData);

Is it really possible to save a data (to db like SQLite) from the push notification payload even when the app is closed(swiped to exit)?
This is a critical requirement to my project.
Hope you can help me.

If your app is closed (swiped to exit), iOS7 will not run any code from your app, so it is not possible to do anything at all: http://stackoverflow.com/a/19202487/183422
