Lightbulb [Q] Keeping an app in the "foreground" when it is physically in the background?

I use an app that has specific functions that only work whilst the app is physically in the foreground occupying the display screen and userspace. When moved into the background the app can become slightly unstable, less functional and entire functions fail to work as it needs to remain in the foreground as an active application.

So my question plain and simple. Is there a way I can run the app process and keep treated as a foreground (active) application. Ergo, all specific prefixes apply (ex. backlight always on, bright brightness set to max).

Remember that the moment the 'home' button is pressed and the other app is no longer in the foreground its functionality is basically terminated.

Does anyone know of a way to do this? Or if there's some Xposed module that can force apps to be treated always as foreground apps.

Thanks so much.

I'm going to bump this because it's still very important.
