    "Background mode" allows you to use the phone while in modem mode. This includes both the voice portion as well as the other functions on the device.

    As for low latency, I don't really know. As a user of the program, I'll second your call for anyone who can explain... I mean, high throughput sounds good, so why might I prefer this low latency of which we are speaking?

    Maybe e-mail the developer/author and ask... but I doubt you would get a "real" response because the app is closed source..
