Android :: Android Application Have Exit Button (or Menu Function) Or Not?

Jan 27, 2009

should an Android application have an exit button (or menu function) or not? Ok, if there's some service or other resources consuming something running in the background I think the user should have an option to make it stop. But what about an application that would just sit there, inactive? If I take a look at the standard application it seems that the Android philosophy is to keep the applications running and let the system decide when to stop and destroy an application idling in the background. I didn't recognize "exit" or "quit" options in the standard programs. On the other hand - why not let the user decide and give the option to quit some software if he knows it's currently not used. So, what's the advice here? Give even a "passive" application an exit button? Or not and just leave it to the system?

Android :: Button Doesn't Close / Exit On Application?

Nov 24, 2010

the problem is that this button doesn't exit of my app... it simply closes the current intent ant returns to the previous intent (window) of my app.... how i can do a real exit/close button? i tryed with this:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);
intent.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_HOME);
intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
startActivity(intent);

but it doesn't works, because when i turn back into my app, the app comes in the last opened window, and not in the first window of the app, how i can do that? i need that when i re-open my app it starts on the first window of my app

Android :: Android - Can't Find Launcher Icon In Menu When Exit Application

Oct 31, 2010

I use a file browser to locate the APK, it installs successful and I can run it OK (when clicking "run" after install completes) However, if I then exit the application, I'm unable to see a launcher for it on my apps menu (where I would expect it, like other apps I've created) At the moment, every time I want to run the app, I first have to re-install it so I can access it, surely there must be a better way?

Android :: Multiple Back Button Clicks Needed To Exit Application

Jul 30, 2010

In my current application design, I have an activity class application.java (which starts on launching the application), and it does not have a layout(UI screen). I call another class called servicebind.java from the onCreate method of my 1st class. here I bind to the local server (bindServer()). i call back the application class through an intent. Once I am back to my application class, I call my activity class called welcome.java which has a layout/UI. When I run this application, I am able to see the welcome screen. But the problem is, when I click on the back button, I get a black screen with just the title on top. I have to hit back button 3 times to exit the application.

The reason I see from the logs is that, the 1st 2 activity classes (application.java and services.java) does not get destroyed unless I hit the back button. So the 1st time I hit back button, the welcome activity gets destroyed. the next back button destroys the servicebind class and final back destroys the application class. Is the reason because these classes dont have a UI to display in the onCreate method. I do not want to change my design where I bind the service in the servicebind class and call the welcome activity in the application class.

Android :: Where The Quit / Exit Button?

Oct 28, 2010

I just used some great app and now I'm done, and... I want to *exit* the app. So I look for the 'exit' button.'quit' button.. nope can't find it.. !? Is there really no 'quit' button for android apps? (like in all other operating systems: the X button at the top right corner of the window) Shurely this can't be true. Only way to quit is to go to the home menu and start up a 2nd application dedicated to killing other apps and then kill app nr 1 from that?? Like buying a car that only has an 'on' switch and when i arrive at my destination, I have to open the hood and disconnect a gas lead or sometning to stop the engine.. (Or press the back button 10 times go through all documents you viewed until you reach the home screen). Isn't this like one of the basic features an OS should provide in its user interface?

Android :: Exit Current Activity To Homescreen (without Using Home Button)?

May 3, 2010

What I am trying to do is emulating the "Home" button which takes one back to Android's homescreen. So here is what causes me problems: I have 3 launcher activities. The first one (which is connected to the homescreen icon) is just a (password protected) configuration activity. It will not be used by the user (just admin) One of the other 2 (both accessed via an app widget) is a questionnaire app. I'm allowing to jump back between questions via the Back button or a GUI back button as well. When the questionnaire is finished I sum up the answers given and provide a "Finish" button which should take the user back to the home screen.

For the questionnaire app I use a single activity (called ItemActivity) which calls itself (is that recursion as well when using intents?) to jump from one question to another:

Questionnaire.serializeToXML();
Intent i = new Intent().setClass(c, ItemActivity.class);
if(Questionnaire.instance.getCurrentItemNo() == Questionnaire.instance.getAmountOfItems()) {
Questionnaire.instance.setCompleted(true);
} else Questionnaire.instance.nextItem();
startActivity(i);

The final screen shows something like "Thank you for participating" as well as the formerly described button which should take one back to the homescreen. But I don't really get how to exit the Activity properly. I've e.g. used this.finish(); but this strangely brings up the "Thank you" screen again. So how can I just exit by jumping back to the homescreen?

Android :: Application Still Running After Exit

Oct 17, 2010

I notice that my application continues to run in the background after I hit the home or back button. I tried calling the finish() method and it still says its running. On another note, how do I setup the keyListener to respond to the user hitting the back or home button. I tried implementing OnKeyListener and using findViewById(R.Layout.main).setOnKeyListener(this) to call finish().

Android : Program On Application - Not Activity - Exit

Jul 22, 2009

I have requirement that needs to save data to a file. During multiple Activitiy screens, I add different data to a list and finally when user is not using the app (means if user exits app by pressing "home" button or "call" button), just before exiting that app, i want to save that data of the list to a file.

coding before exiting activity screen is simple - by calling onDestory () method, but here I want not one activity but the application exit.

So my question is How do I write a code that will be executed just before application exits ? I tried created one class extends Application, and then I override onTerminate() method, but it's not get called when I exit ( pressing home button on device)

HTC Incredible :: Why Droid Applications Don't All Come With Exit Button

Aug 5, 2010

why droid apps don't all come with an exit button. I know you can use the back button to eventually close a program but in so many cases that can mean several taps and in the case of a browser, going back several pages. Using the home button just leave the program running and using resources. It just seems like such an obvious oversight.

Android :: Stop All Started Services On Application Close / Exit

Apr 18, 2010

Is it possible to stop all started services when the user hits the Home Button? I use:
startService(new Intent(ClassName.this, ClassName2.class));
stopService(new Intent(ClassName.this, ClassName2.class));

This means I will have to somehow add the 'stopService()' for 7+ of my app classes
I've researched this topic and I think there's 'onTerminate' but still not sure how this should be implemented.

General :: Power Menu Bug Report Function Not Working

Aug 10, 2013

I have an original Nexus 7 running Android 4.3. I just learned about the "Take bug report" and "Power menu bug report" method to capture screen shots and logs. Unfortunately, they don't seem to work for me.

I'm logged on with my normal Google account. When I use either method, I get the "Take bug report" popup. When I tap on Report, the popup goes away and then nothing happens - no email - nothing. I've seen a couple of other reports of this happening.
