Windows Phone Mango brings new multitasking capability for third party application developpers, in the form of fast application switching and background agents. In this course, we explore the new execution model that enables fast app switching, and we examine how to leverage this model in our applications. We also seek to understand what background agents are, how they work and how to use them, be it for scheduling simple popup reminders and alarms, or for running custom code in the background at regular time intervals. We also take a deep dive into the new background audio and background file transfer capabilities Mango brings to the table.
