Android :: Start Background Service On Install

Oct 22, 2010

I have an app which runs as a background service only. I'l like it to start up when its installed. As its just a background service it doesnt show up on the pane of installed apps. So there is no way for the user to manually start it. I've already regietered for the BOOT_COMPLETED intent which works but I dont want the user to have to power off the phone after the app has been installed, just so as they can start it.

I've looked at the following intents: ACTION_PACKAGE_ADDED/CHANGED/ REPLACED/RESTARTED/INSTALL, ACTION_SCREEN_ON/OFF, ACTION_USER_PRESENT, ACTION_TIME_TICK,

But it doesnt seem that you can register to listen for them from my manifest.

How I can start my background service without a power off/on?

Android :: Start Application With SMS

May 1, 2009

I would like to know if anybody knows how I can start my application with an incoming SMS message.

For example, I send an SMS message from phone A to Phone B. When Phone B receives the message, it checks if it is sent to my program. If it is, it starts(run) my application. Important thing here is that my program is not running in the device unless SMS is received, so it can not be listening for SMS itself.

Android :: Cannot Start Parent Application / Process Is Bad

May 12, 2009

As an exercise I attempted to add an AppWidgetProvider-derived class to one of our existing Android applications. When the widget is created and appears on the home screen, the output from adb logcat notes: W/ActivityManager(58): Unable to launch app com.mycompany.myapp/ 10042 for broadcast Intent { action=android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_ENABLED comp= {com.mycompany.myapp/com.mycompany.myapp.MyAppWidgetProvider} }: process is bad

This output comes from around line 10814 in ActivityManagerService (looking at cupcake on git). This is running on an ADP 1.5, FWIW. The same AppWidget code, once separated from the main application's project and put into its own simple project, runs as expected, so I know my manifest entries/XML/Java are all as they should be. Has anyone else run into this, or perhaps can the Android team comment on what aspect of my application might be preventing the AM from starting up the process when the widget is added to the home screen?

Android :: Application Doesn't Start From Eclipse

Jun 14, 2010

I'm using Eclipse on Windows to develop Android application. So when I'm trying to run the app, the system outputs to console

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

starts the emulator, but doesn't upload the .apk and doesn't start the activity. So, app is not started anyway.

I found a "solution" here, but it's unclear and seems to not work. For example, I don't know, which "emulator processed" are meant to be killed. I found adb.exe only. And that's the main point: sometimes I'm lucky enough to kill all that they wanted and start the app. But it's undetermined.

Android :: Call Or Start External Application

Sep 15, 2010

I'm working on a Application and I would like to start or call an external application from it by pressing for example a button...on my application.

The application I would like to call is an open source application.

I've read on the official android website it is possible to do it but haven't found any suggestion on how to do it.

MY APPROACH:

So trying on my own I've used an Intent Action and a button...like this

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

RESULT:

When the button is pressed, A window appears which invites me to complete the Action I guess by choosing one of the Listed programs such as:

-Gstr
-Import Ics
-Market
-Music
-Mail (com.htc.android.mail) and so on...but not the API I was looking for...

When I choose Gstr(I guess is the application manager) then opens another window

Which shows a list of Installed Applications. From there I find the Application I was

Looking for and starts it (by long pressing on it's Icon...)

ISSUE:

I would like to start the external Application directly by clicking on a button on my application without passing through hundreds of others... Is there a way to achieve?

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Force START An Application?

I have two apps that I must manually start on each power on: "Call Filter" and "Phone Found". Surely there must be a program that allows you to START selected apps at power on. I know there are many apps that allow you to prevent and app from starting, but I have not seen one that allows you to start selected apps. [DROID X, 2.2, not rooted]

Android :: Emulator Application Load / Start Time

Oct 6, 2010

I'm working with Eclipse and writing an Android application. I've noticed that the load times to the Android emulator can vary significantly. Recently, I found that manually going back to the main menu of the emulator helps my application load much faster.Is there a quicker way (read: automatic way) to exit out of my application rather than hitting the Back button multiple times until I get to the main app menu? Secondly, is there something I am doing wrong that factors into the longer load time?

Android :: How To Start Application In Last Viewed Activity In Previous Session

Apr 21, 2010

I'm writing an application consisting of several activities and, on restarts, I'd like the application to initially display the application's activity that was the last to display in the application's previous session.

I save information about the last activity in SharedPreferences and I'm trying to start that last activity with a call to startActivity(intent) from my Application's onCreate handler.

The problem is that if I don't set the intent's FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK, the result is a run-time exception message in logcat suggesting that I should set the flag. And if I set that intent flag, the correct activity gets started but doesn't fully initialize resulting in null pointer exceptions (which don't occur when I don't attempt to start the activity from my Application class).

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

Calling startActivity() from outside of an Activity context requires the FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK flag. Is this really what you want?

How to correctly start a particular activity from the Application class's onCreate handler?

2.1 Update :: Unable To Install Or Start Software Update Components

Nov 19, 2010

I've been trying to update my phone now for nearly two weeks, trying various options, yet nothing I do helps in any way.I started off just running the update from SEUS with my phone as i've been using it.the updater started, gets about 70% through "Preparing" and pops up an error "Unable to install or start software update components." Closing which pops up "try again" or come to this site.I then tried uninstalling all installed components, same result as above.I then tried a Master Reset to factory setting, same result as above.I then disable the Firewall and the Anti-Virus, same result as above.Basically, i'm at the end of my tether, this should not be this difficult, I should not have to jump through this amount of hoops.If there was a way to legitimately root the phone (keeping warranty), I could already have Froyo installed, instead of this irritating mess thats causing me nothing but headaches.

Android :: All .class Files In My Java Application Loaded Into Memory After Appliaction Start?

Feb 3, 2010

I am making an app for Android, in my Activity I need to load an array of about 10000 strings. Loading it from database was slow, so I decided to put it directly into one .java file (as a private field). I have about 20 of these classes containing string arrays and my question is, are all the classes loaded into memory after my application is started? If so the Activity in which I need these strings would be loaded quickly, but the application as a whole would have a slow start...

Is there other way, how to very quickly load an 10000 string array from a file?

UPDATE:
Why I need these strings? My Android app allows you to find "journeys" in Prague's public transit - you choose departure stop, arrival stop and it finds your journey (have a look here). My app has a suggestions feature - you enter leter "c" as your departure stop and a suggestions ListView appears with stops starting with "c". For these suggestions I need the strings. Fetching the suggestions from database is slow (about 400ms on G1).
