NativeApplication.nativeApplication.exit(); problem in iOS app

Have this function called to exit an iOS app:


function ExitApp(event:MouseEvent):void {


          trace('NativeApplication Exit');




The function is triggered as the listenIO() does its thing and the trace() triggers, but no exit(). Closing the iOS app by the hardware menu button exits but when re-entering the app, it is stll where it was left and I don't have a function to return to a preset state.

Help to exit the app appreciated, thank you.

    the exit() method is not supported by iOS.

    One way to get around exit() not working on iOS might be to set the following property in your iPhone section of your app XML:









    That would force your application to exit on suspend (aka the user pressing the hardware button)

    Try setting NativeApplication.nativeApplication.autoExit = true or false to set it during runtime


    Might need to set NativeApplication.nativeApplication.executeInBackground as well - never tried to do this at runtime
