Minimize a Windows Store app and continuing making its background task works


  • I am developing a Windows Store App for this tablet: Panasonic FZ-G1 using Windows 8.1 and VS 2013 for Windows.

    My app, basically tracks GPS coordinates and sends it to our server, after logging in, it should work minimized (in background).

    I started this development, deploying the app on the same PC where I developed and I used a background task which  run within 15' and worked properly.

    Now, I just received the Panasonic device but I noticed these:

    1) background task is not running even if the app is in foreground

    2) I cannot minimize my app, I read it here:

    Please what could be the solution for me? Shall I use WPF as framework?

    I apologize if this is not the right section for this question, please indicate me what is the right one.
