Android :: Remove Application From Recent Application List

Sep 21, 2010

I guess that Android won't let people to do this, because they think they have perfect handle for the task/applications. However, I really need to do this in my case.

I have an activity A acting as the entry point of my application. In that activity, it reads the preference and decided which activity to start, say B or C. After that, it finishes itself. So, activity A never appears to the users.

My application stores things on sdcard, and reads from it constantly. So, when the sdcard is unmounted, I need to display a message to the user that the sdcard is unavailable, instead of opening B or C. I set a check in A to display that message when sdcard is unavilable. When that message is displayed, A will not try to start B or C.

Things works perfectly if user only enter my application from application launcher. However, I found that user can also enter my application by long pressing home and choose it from the recent application list, if he has opened it recently. When user does that, it skips A and goes directly to B or C. I don't have the check in both of them, so exception is thrown while I am trying to access sdcard, and force close dialog pops up.

I can simply move my check to both B and C to fix this problem. But in the future, the number of activities started from A will increase. If there are 6 of them, I'll need to copy this check to 6 places. Needless to say, this looks very ugly, and is a maintenance nightmare.

So, the best fix should be removing my application from recent application list when the sdcard is uunmounted. However, I can't find how to do this. Even killing the process or use ActivityManager.restartPackage, it still appears in the list. Can anyone tell me how to remove it from the list?

Android : Application Disappears From "recent Apps" List / How To Get Back?

Dec 15, 2009

I am writing an app that wants to be able to handle URLs. I also want to be able to launch it stand-alone with no arguments, so I've specified two intent filters: I have also specified android:launchMode="singleTask". Now, if I explicitly launch my application from the application list, its name and icon can be found in the "recent apps" list that pops up when I hold the home key. If I then use the email application to open a URL in my application, my application disappears from the "recent apps" list. Why does this happen, and what can I do about it? I notice that the Browser application doesn't behave like this, and it has similar intent filters and the same launchMode..

Android :: Simulate Recent Application Window

Mar 14, 2010

I am wanting to simulate the look of the "recent applications" display that you get when you long press the home key. At first I thought it was a custom dialog but apparently (according to what I see in the Hierarchy viewer) it is a PhoneWindow$DecorView. I presume the DecorView is the main layout for this. According to the docs there is no layout or window named this, so I can not extend from it.

Android :: Hide Application From Application List

Nov 1, 2010

Is there any way to hide an application icon from Android applications list ? The application should be downloaded from Market and opened some GUI for configuring my application. I don't want to see any icon of my application in applications list. User should not be able to run it.

By the way I know some way:
remove this line from manifest
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

But it is not worked for me, because the GUI is not shown.

HTC EVO 4G :: Default SMS Application - Most Recent Message

Jun 8, 2010

I've been using the default SMS program since I'm OK with it and don't really need the fancier customizable stuff of Handcent and such. However one thing that does bother me about the SMS program is that when I hit "Messages" it brings me back to the conversation of the last person I was texting with/I sent text to, not the SMS that just came in.

For ex: I've been texting Person A back and forth. Then I get a text from Person B- I see it in the notification bar preview. So I press Messages, but it doesn't take me to Person B's message- it takes me back to the thread from Person A. I can't even figure out How to get to the Person B message except to go to "Menu" key, then hit All Messages, then it shows all the threads and of course the most recent (person B) is up at top. But wouldn't it make sense that pressing Messages after receiving a message takes you to the most recent incoming message? Am I doing something wrong/have some options checked off wrong? Is there a way around this default behavior?

Android : How To Get Recent Activity List?

Jul 15, 2010

When I run my app, it works fine but if I switch back to home or another application, I want to go back to my app quickly by using the recent activity list (on my phone this is done by holding down the home button). For whatever reason, I never see my application in this list of apps. All other apps when they are running or have just recently been closed show up ( the menu shows 6 icons for the recent apps). Why doesn't my app show up on this list? Is this something you need to do programmatically?

Android :: App Appears Multiple Times In Recent Apps List

Aug 26, 2010

A number of users of my app have reported that on the Nexus One, running Froyo 2.2, the app appears multiple times in the 'Recent Apps' list that is displayed when you long press the home button. Personally, I have not been able to replicate the issue. Have tried killing the app with a task killer then restarting it to see if that would cause the app to appear more than once on the list. Also tried spawning multiple thread from within an activity in the app, but still no go. I have also tested on Droid phones running 2.2 as well as on the 2.2 emulator but to no avail. It is curious that only Nexus One Froyo users experience the issue. The app has one main launcher activity, about 30 different activities and is divided into 4 main tasks to help manage the activity stack. The app also has an IntentService for running network operations in the background. Is there any know scenario that could cause an app to appear multiple times in the 'Recent Apps' list? Is the 'Recent Apps' list populated based on the app package name e.g. com.mycompany.myappname or based on the tasks defined in the application manifest file?

Android :: Unable To Remove Default Launching Of An Application

May 6, 2009

Example: I have a button which starts an activity with GET_CONTENT audio/* I have a menu with choices: Music Track or Sound Recorder and a checkbox. I check the box, it tells me that I can clear the setting in Application -> Manage Applications. I launch the Music Track with the box checked. I go to the application settings, but the "clear defaults" button is always enabled. It was already the case with 1.1 SDK, 1.5 does not help (tested on emulator 1.5 AND ADP1 with 1.5 recovery image). I also tested the allowClearUserData flag but it seems we cannot clear anything but the cache (for the webview ?)

Android :: Highly Organized To-Do List Application

Mar 27, 2010

I am a freelance graphic designer, and I just bought the Droid for Verizon as a tool to help organize jobs and business.

I'm looking for an application to help organize my jobs, and I think the features and abilities I'm looking for in ONE program may be too advanced, but we'll see.

I want to find a sort of To-Do list application that will let me do all of the following:

Organize Jobs by Clients and allow me to select the job, read the general description of the job. I want to be able to have an appendix to each note that will allow me to view people, businesses and contacts that will be involved in the job aside from the main client, ie Print shops, mailing houses, owners of rights to imagery, etc. I also want to be able to directly contact any of them as a link through the list note. and I'd also like to be able to have another annex section to each note that will allow me to set up a to-do list for each project, example: Illustration job list would be: Finish pencils Finish Inks Finish Colors Scan etc.

Anything out there for something like that? Understandably there probably isnt a program out there specifically for graphics jobs organization, but I am wondering if there is a to do list or general list application that has that intricate of an organizational structure.

Android :: Notify Application When Item Is Selected In List Activity

May 3, 2009

I need some help using ListActivity. The API provides "onListItemClick" which you can override and is called when user selects an item in the list.

However I want the same type of functionality when an item in the list is selected. So as soon as user highlights something in the list I want my application to do something (like play a preview). I dont want to wait for user to select the button.
