Open Source iOS Library For Easily Scheduling Background Fetches

One of the multitasking features introduced with iOS 7 was background fetches, and I mentioned a few tutorials on utilizing the iOS 7 multitasking features including background fetches here.

Here’s an open source library from the LinkedIn engineering team providing a very easy way to scheduling background fetches called Selene.

Selene  automatically determines which background fetches to execute based on the priority, average response time, and elapsed time since last execution, with a 30 second timeout for tasks.  This way only the most important tasks are executed preserving performance, bandwidth, and battery.

You can find Selene on Github here.

You can read more about Selene on the LinkedIn engineering blog.

A great library for performing background fetches.
