Hook into main loop in Firemonkey somehow to process data from another thread.

I wonder if there is a way to hook onto an applications main loop in Firemonkey to be able to process a custom made queue from a different thread. In other words, in the Win32 world I would be able to create a hook to the message handling routine, and check for my own custom windows messages and do something. In Firemonkey and crossplatform this isn't possible and I wonder how to do something equal.

I am currently thinking about working through the data from my other threads queue in an TIdleMessage event.
  FIdleHandlerID := TMessageManager.DefaultManager.SubscribeToMessage(TIdleMessage,EventMessageListener);
But I dont know if thats a good way.

How does other developers write code that needs to regulary check results from another thread without having to manually add calls in the main threads code that checks the queue in Delphi Firemonkey?

I would use thread with custom procedure.  As an event - start thread with synced procedure where you do some stuff. (similar to: synchronize-and-queue-with-parameters/)
Another solution is very well described here:
