Should an app be always running for beacons to work?

iOS devices can constantly scan for BLE and turn on relevant apps when they come within range of a beacon, even if these are closed.

Android devices do not have a beacon system of this type, the only way to turn on in response to a beacon is to run a service in the background that is continuously listening.
