Android : Handcent To HomeScreen - Apps Vanished When Press Home Button

May 13, 2010

I have the motorola droid. I got the handcent app because I really like all the customization options within it. However, lately I have been having this annoying problem. Sometimes when I have just sent a message, when I press the home button to return to the homescreen, it goes home but all my apps have vanished. I can go through my menu and replace them all to where they were, or I can reboot the phone and that usually corrects it. It is still annoying and is really putting me off the app. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you know if there is a specific cause or how I can correct it?

Android :: Change Button Image When Press In Homescreen Widget?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a homescreen widget with an imagebutton. I have the button working with a pending intent, but I can't seem to figure out how to change the button image when it is pressed. I tried using a selector and it works in my widget test activity, but not in the remoteview. How could I implement this functionality in the home screen widget?

Android :: Using Any App And Press Home Button Home Screen Blacks Out - 10 Sec Delay Get All Icons Back

Mar 30, 2010

Whenever I am using any app and press the home button, the home screen blacks out for a few secs and it takes around 10 sec to get all the icons back and before I can start using my phone again. I am using a non rooted mytouch 3g.

This problem does not happen if I exit an app by pressing the back button. It becomes very annoying at times.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 : X10i - When Press Home Button - Get A Prompt To Select To Complete Action Using Home Or Timescape

Sep 16, 2010

I am a new member and a relatively new owner of an X10i. Overall I am happy with the phone but I am hoping some can answer a question. When I press the home button (middle one) I get a prompt to select to 'Complete Action using Home or Timescape' This is quite annoying. I want the default action to be Home (not Timescape) but despite ticking the box in the prompt it still pops up this box.

Android :: Catch When Press Home Button?

Nov 4, 2010

I am trying to catch when the user has pressed the Home button. I thought I could use

protected void onResume()
{
registerReceiver(homeReceiver, new IntentFilter(Intent.CATEGORY_HOME));
}
...
private BroadcastReceiver homeReceiver = new BroadcastReceiver()
{
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
{
// logic here
}
};

but that doesn't seem to work. I understand that onPause will be called, but my particular app has some logic that I need to handle separately. Short story is based on some info coming in, the app will display new Activities to the user. To prevent Back button issues, as each Activity hits it's onStop it calls finish on itself. However if the user presses the Home button I do not want the Activity to call finish so that when the user presses the app icon on the home screen or via the Recently run apps list, the last Activity is brought back

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?

General :: Long Press Home Button - What Does It Do

Is long pression the home button and removing open/recent apps "killing" the apps? I read that there is no need to "kill" an app and it actually uses more battery life than it saves. Should I be actively swiping away recent apps?

Android :: Overriding The Home Key Long Press In A Category - HOME Activity

May 29, 2010

I just created my own "Home" to replace the stock android one or Sense.

All is working fine and I get all I want. My only problem is to replace to long press on home key ( that usually show the last 6 activities you launched) by my own launcher.

I successfully replace the long press on MENU button with this code:

CODE:..........

and this part part for the long press:

CODE:.............

But the problem is that I wasn't able to replace the KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MENU with KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HOME

Is that something locked in the code that avoid user to use a Home long press?

HTC Desire : Holding Home Button Brings Last Used Apps

Nov 11, 2010

I have had my HTC Desire for about 2 months now and I have just accidentally learned that if you hold down the home button for about a second or 2, it brings up a neat little 'last used apps' screen. I am using LP so i don't know if it is part of Android or the launcher but I found this pretty neat.

General :: Make Home Button Close All Running Apps?

Feb 15, 2014

Swiping to close each app all the time is inefficient for me. I realize other people might not want this but I want whatever app I was using to completely close when I tap the home button. There is one app that puts an X on your homescreen that closes everything when clicked. That is a little better but I want to go one step further and have the home button do the same thing. Is there anything out there for that?

HTC Magic :: Recently Used Apps Launcher Appears Only Shortly When Holding Home Button

Oct 6, 2010

When clicking and holding the home button the very useful modal dialogue appears showing the list of recently used programs/applications. Unfortunately, most of the time it appears and then disappears again. It is very annoying and makes this feature useless.

I am using LauncherPro on my Android 2.1 (CyanogenMod 5.0.8 DS), but with ADW launcher it showed the same behaviour.

Android : Stopping GPS On Back Button Press

My application uses GPS updates while it is running and I would like that to stop when the user back out of the app as I assume it will continue wasting a lot of battery power. I've tried intercepting the back button press but it doesn't seem to work. I'm not sure if this is because it's not executing the code or I'm using the wrong command.
