To receive earned coins from pools, when the payout is made, does this app needs to be open?

Sorry guys, I'm real newbie Smiley But the question is sensible I think...

No. You have to download the whole blockchain to send coins, however.

Yes, that is definitely a sensible question.  Here's a similar question and answer from the FAQ:

Quote
Q.) What happens when someone sends me a bitcoin but my computer is powered off?

A.) Bitcoins aren't actually "sent" to your wallet, the software only uses that term so that we can use the currency without having to learn new concepts. Your wallet is only needed when you wish to spend coins that you've received.
The coins that were sent to you when the client was not running will later appear as if they were received in your wallet when you later launch the client. It will download blocks and catch up with any transactions it didn't already have.
