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

Jun 1, 2013

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?

General :: Unlock On Power Button Long Press?

Jun 11, 2012

I need to be able to skip the swipe screen and unlock the phone by long pressing the power button. On short press, it should act regularly (waking up and showing the swipe screen). I've tried "No Lock", "Autolock" and "My Lock Utility" but these unlock the phone immediately after pressing the power button I think this would be the ideal combination of functionality.

My phone is Motorola Atrix.

General :: How To Disable Long Press Headset Button Activates Google Now

Oct 23, 2012

On ICS I used to skip songs on Poweramp using the headset button, but since I upgraded to Jellybean, the long press goes to Voice Search on Google Now? Is there a way to disable that? I already configured on Poweramp to use the long press, gave it high priority, but google voice continues taking place and there's no options there to disable it.

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?

Android :: How To Capture Long Press Of Menu Button?

Jul 27, 2010

How can I capture a long press of the device menu button in my application?I thought of an intent filter, but there's only an action called android.intent.action.SEARCH_LONG_PRESS, but nothing for the MENU button.I found that long press of the menu button actually does different things on different devices,i.e. on Nexus One it will show the soft keyboard, while on Samsung Galaxy S it will pop up the search 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.

Sprint HTC Hero :: On Home Screen Long Press Menu Key Function?

Nov 15, 2009

I tried searching for this, to no avail, but here is the situation. I was on my main Home screen and just trying to figure stuff out and when I long press the menu key it brings up the onscreen keyboard. I figured it was for contact search or something, but it did nothing when I typed...or so I thought. Now everytime I back out to the Home screen a little transparent "window" displays with letters i first typed. I cant type new letters to display or even use the backspace key to erase. Any one know what Im talking about?

Samsung Moment :: Long Press Icons On Home Screen When Unlock Phone

Nov 18, 2010

It seems like almost every time that I unlock my phone, one of the icons on the home screen is selected (long press, like I was intending to move it or trash it). Using Launcher Pro, if that might be causing it. I don't think it was doing this before the last Sprint update, but don't know if that's the cause either.

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.

HTC Droid Eris : Drop Down List Of Possible Choices - While Long Press Search Button

Jun 24, 2010

I have a question regarding a feature that just seemed to disappear from Handcent SMS.

Before, when I composed a message in the app or using quick compose (long press search button), there would be a drop down list of possible choices when I began typing in the "To:" field. For example, if I typed "k", it would show names beginning with "k". But now the feature is gone and it really sucks when I want to compose a text.

Does anyone else have this issue? Is it Handcent's problem or a software problem (v2.1 bug?), and does anyone know how to fix it?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Long Press On Home Screen Goes To Edit Directly

Nov 22, 2010

I have x10 mini 2.1 since I updated to 2.1 any long press on home screen or corner icons goes directly to edit either widgets or icons depending wich screen I have up.This is anoying because many times I press just a little too long and for example end up in the edit icons mode instead of opening messages like I wanted to. Is there anyway to get this as it was on 1.6? Long press didnt open edit, the only way to open edit was trough menu key.

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 : 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?

General :: Long Press Headset Not Start Google Now When Screen Locked

Feb 20, 2013

Galaxy Nexus
Android Version: 4.2.2

Steps to reproduce the problem:

- plug in headset
- lock screen
- press headset button for several seconds

What happened:

- No reaction, Google Now / Voice Actions not launched
- Manually unlock screen
- Long press with unlocked screen correctly launches Voice Search

What you think the correct behaviour should be:

Long press of headset button should launch Google Now / Voice Actions even with locked screen. Having to dig the phone out of your pocket in order to launch Voice Actions with a headset e.g. to place a call kinda defeats the purpose of using Voice Actions in the first place.

Adding insult to injury: long press is not broadcast to other applications because of Google Now, so it can't even be put to good use e.g. as volume control.

This was open and ignored by code. [URL]... Issue 48616
