And it's really not necessary now that iOS has pseudo multitasking.

I'm curious why bluefire has this conflict while other apps don't.
I don't actually know the nitty gritty details (I'm basically a UX guy) - but our devs do. I assume it has something to do with the C++ libraries that make up the guts of the app. Most iOS apps that support either PDF or EPUB leverage built-in native iOS features/API's. In order to support Adobe's DRM, our app has to do all of the PDF rendering and EPUB rendering itself - from scratch essentially (e.g. the EPUB renderer in Bluefire Reader essentially is a custom-purpose web browser for eBooks - with full CSS support, etc). It is *many*, *many* thousands of lines of code. Far more complexity than 99.9% of apps including games.
