Location Based Background tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Windows8 talk on Location api  http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/BUILD/BUILD2011/PLAT-781T  referred to have location based tasks run in background.

    But I havent really come accross how I can do this. The background triggers for Win8 do not have anything related to location listed.

    Can someone tell me how this can be done? Also, is it possible to have a toast message displayed when the app is not running? Something like location based reminders?
