I fail to see how FULL multi tasking makes it superior in any way?

So, if you want an app that hides in the background running while you do something else. Like a GPS tracker? Or something that is monitoring location? Or a time of some kind? One that will pop into life on a given event?

Take my EveryTrail app for example. Brilliant app but once you start it, and you go off on your journey, it has to be the only thing running. I can't reply a text, or check email etc because I would have to shut down everytrail (or in V4 suspend it).

Or if I wanted to write an app that would monitor my connection - and sound a warning if I was in a no-signal area (might be useful if I was expecting an important call), this app would have to be running exclusively on an iPhone. On ANY other smartphone it can be running out of sight all the time.
