As of version 1.0.12, Impel can now run as a robust service so that your tasks always run successfully. Unfortunately, to be a service Google requires us to place an icon into the notification area so that you know the app is running.

Some users may find this undesirable, so we provide the option of running Impel under the less robust methods as of the 1.0.13 release. The downside of this is that Android can force Impel to close at any time and your tasks may not run. This is especially true on devices that are already running many apps simultaneously. Please see our post on this issue on the blog or forum.
