Notifications and background running.

Hi all,

Suggested feature inbound;

Would it be an option to allow the app to run in the background while FPL is filed and being adhered to as longer flights mean leaving the app for a very short (risky!) amount of time.

Along with this, having a chance to tell IF to notify users at set way points (I.e so we know when to begin descent/adjust any parameters). For example, “Notify me 5 minutes before waypoint KIOTE” sending a notification to me while the app runs in the background? It would make long haul flights much more feasible for a lot of us I think.

May have my head in the clouds on this one but worth a shot.
