Simblee for Mobile Android disconnects when app is in background.
« on: September 29, 2016, 05:11:29 PM »
The Simblee for mobile app disconnects from a running Simblee application if the app is moved to the background. This does not happen in IOS.
This is a particularly bad issue as you need to have the Simblee connected during an OTA firmware update but you need to leave the app to run nRF toolbox for example.

Please help.

Hello lsnyman,

The Simblee for Mobile Android application cannot currently maintain a connection when focus is lost from the app. During an OTA update, the Simblee for Mobile app will be disconnected anyways, as advertising stops, then continues as DfuTarg. In OTA, even if the app could maintain the connection when focus is lost, OTA would break that connection.

I hope this explains the reasoning behind the app disconnection.

Thanks,

Nelson
