Description Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2011-08-25 09:20:58 UTC
The documentation claims that the OS watchdog will kill the app in 5 seconds.   

Measured on an iPhoen 4 with iOS 4.3, this value is 17 seconds.

/// You have 5 seconds to return from this method, or iOS will terminate your application.

I fixed the templates, but the documentation and screenshots will have the wrong value.
Comment 2 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2013-02-11 22:23:01 UTC
Closing, the value seems to change across environments.
