Background mode?

Chant Jul 18, 2014 07:04AM CEST

How do I get my app to have background mode? If I changed my category to entertainment and music, would Apple allow my app the background mode? Also is there a feature that not only shows how to get to a location, but allows a route option that gives directions as you are moving?

If changing the category would work for me to be allowed background mode, I am aware I must resubmit the app which is extra in cost. I understand and that will not be a problem, I just need to know the process to do so.

Thank you

Unfortunately, it's not because of the category of your app, it's about its content and its description. If you are not creating an app dedicated to music, for a nightclub, for a DJ or for a radio station for instance, you will not be allowed by Apple to use the background mode.
