    Auto start, run in backround etc.

    Hello
    I have a few questions about 3rd party applications on N900/Maemo 5:
    1) Can 3rd party application auto start when phone boots?
    2) Can 3rd party applications run in the background? Would be cool if an app. could run in the background listening for call events.

    I can see that it can be done on Qt for Symbian: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...Qt_for_Symbian

    Thanks.

    Maemo 5 is very special embedded version, but still Linux. You can do whatever you want. In case "call events" means telephony events, Qt mobility will provide possibilities to interact with telephony functionality.

    Thanks divanov, I will look into it.

    My background is S40 (at Nokia), J2ME, BlackBerry and iPhone development, and switching to Maemo/Qt is quite different. Maemo has more a Linux feel while the other platforms have a 'mobile device' feel, hard to describe. I am curious to see what developing for Maemo will bring.
