Does Photobucket (or Acrosync for iOS) transfer files in the background? See this comment by the makers of another uploadtool:
"This is a restriction of iOS. All third-party applications on iOS, once they enter the background, have a limited amount of time to continue operations before iOS terminates the application."
Will a background sync that is taking, say, one hour succeed?
