Basic Example:

An app will start up each time it is placed in the foreground and shut down each time it is placed in the background. This Boolean property sets whether or not the app shuts down (exits) when it goes into the background. The default setting is true; i.e., the app shuts down when it goes into the background. Change the setting to false to make your app run persistently.

Basic Example:

If your app is initialized for the first time, is set to the iconFile from the app.json file. If setting the iconFile, the {MODEL}.iconFile naming convention should be used for whichever iconFile you are setting.
