I have developed an iPhone app. When I have installed it in the device, it worked fine, ie it showed, the logo screen, the title screen and goes to game screen and now I have exited pressing the home button. The problems starts when I relaunch the app, it straightly goes to the game screen, by skipping the splash screens.

While I was working on it the app crashed and when I launched again it showed the logo screen and title screen. But when I relaunched it, the splash screens where skipped.

Could you tell me the possible errors that might have occurred?


It's not an error, it's iOS4 multitasking.

Your app keeps running in the background as long as there are resources available.

    \$\begingroup\$ It's a setting in Info.plist in the XCode project for the application. It's called UIApplicationExitsOnSuspend. If you set it to YES the application will exit when it gets suspended. Here's a link to the Information Property List Key Reference that talks about it. developer.apple.com/iphone/library/documentation/General/… \$\endgroup\$ – Fosco Aug 17 '10 at 15:15

    \$\begingroup\$ As a user, I would very much like to be able to pop out for a quick SMS and get right back into the game. Enabling this setting will seriously annoy me. \$\endgroup\$ – drxzcl Aug 17 '10 at 15:26
