lifetimeMonitor is important - but not really supported perfectly right now

And is perfect possible on all these targets?

Not sure what this issue means. @slodge could you explain this one, or close it.

This is about the interface IMvxLifetime - https://github.com/MvvmCross/MvvmCross/blob/3.5/Cirrious/Cirrious.MvvmCross/Platform/IMvxLifetime.cs

This interface (or its replacement) could be really useful to developers wanting to track (cross-platform) whether an app is foreground/background/hibernating/reinflating/whatever...

To do this properly would require someone first really clearly understanding that whatever across all the platforms... is it even possible to unify the different lifetimes across Droid and Windows?

So I think it's linked to #143 - it would be lovely to have some good samples/guidance/code on:

  • handling tombstoning
  • consuming local and remote push notifications (in the different tombstoning states)
  • implementing background tasks (and long running tasks)
