How to create long running background tasks ?


  • Hi!

    Is Win8.1 and WP8.1 have some way(maybe some C++ code) to create long running(10 mins - 1 hour) background tasks ? I want to create audio converter that will convert local audio or audio from network to format/codec chosen by the user. Of course I can create foreground only app and it will run as long as I need, but it is really very bad experience for the user. It will be much nicer if in foreground part user will select audio files and setting and background part will perform the actual conversion, while user can do what it want.
