I have a unique need. I am using iPads to control my home. There are five of them mounted in the walls of the major rooms of the house. They area all iPad 1 running IOS 5.0.1. I need a way to do the following:
Have a small app that is running in the background and can be invoked by a URL schema from another app that is running in the foreground. Multitasking is on. The special app when invoked will be given as URL parameters the name (URL schema) to return to and a desired state for the iPad backlight. The app is to turn the backlight on or off, and return to the caller. I am assuming that if the backlight is off, screen touches still work.
I will JB the iPads if need be.
I am willing to pay a reasonable amount for the development of such an app. my name is Barry.
