[aprssig] APRSPad in the app store

I don't believe the iPad can Multi-Task, so just one application at a time
as I understand it.

If I'm reading an e-book on the iPad, does aprspad continue to 
function?  Will it deliver APRS messages in real-time over top of 
whatever app I'm actively using?  Will (I realize it doesn't transmit 
yet) it keep beaconing my position and keeping other station's positions 
current when I'm not actively looking at it?
