UWP apps, like the Windows Phone 7 and 8 platforms before them can have Background Tasks, while a background task for the Morse Coder app might not be enormously useful at this stage, let’s take a look at how to create one. In a further post we will look at updating the Live Tile from our Background Task.
By the end of this post we’ll have a Background Task running on a schedule. It won’t do anything, but we will have set up the permission in the manifest, created the project, and our task class and registered it with the application. We will then be ready to implement the task.
