Answer
Hello,

This would be a question better asked in the Operating Systems or Software development forums. I couldn't find a mobile technology one, but if you can that may be a good spot to ask, as well.

This was asked under the general networking forum, which doesn't deal with operating systems (layer 7) on any device. It deals more with layers 1-3 of the OSI model.
