Native wearable app with GUI running in background - NOT web app


I am new to Tizen app development. I'm currently developing an app (native in C) which is supposed to collect data from server via curl, let's say, every 5 minute. The app is supposed to display that collected data on the screen when turned on.


Is it possible to develop an app in C with GUI, which when minimalized (or put in the background) will be still "reading" data from the internet every 5 minute? The only solution I found os to develop a hybrid app (Web-app with service app) but I try to avoid using web app at every cost. Is it possible to create one native app which can do both - displaying data via GUI and running in background? Or is it possible to develop two connected native apps in C (one as a service and one as a GUI)?


Thank you in advance, Adrian.

you can package native UI app and native service app into one TPK. (of cause using one manifest file)

good luck.

1. You can create long running GUI app -

2. You can create and deploy in on .tpk file - service and gui app written in C/C++
