General :: Recent Apps Intent / Widget Or App

Jan 31, 2011

What launcher intent should be called, to bring up the "Recent Apps" list in the default home launcher? I am using a Pandigital Novel, and the lack of hardware keys make it very awkward to navigate the system. The softkeys in the OP status bar allow me to get to the home screen, and if I glitch it by making it timeout through countless presses occasionally brings up the "Recent Apps" screen which is great, but not reliable like that. (If they had the source code released, I could probably just fix the status bar keys to intentionally [pti] bring the screen up)

What I need, is the actual intent, so I can make a quick toggle app to bring it up. Or if you know of an app that already does this (Or widget, but I'd rather not as widgets mess with sleep on this thing, with the Google Experience/market hack).

I know that it can be done by emulating a home key press that's longer than the longpress timeout.

Android :: Disable Recent Apps Intent

Jun 20, 2010

I want to disable the recent apps intent that is fired from the icon when you hold the home button. I am currently detecting, in the onCreate(), if the intent is fired from the quick launch dialog, and then I call finish(). This entails that when the application goes to the background finish() is called so that when the app is launched it goes through the onCreate(). This requires strategic coding when switching between activities in the application. I guess I can fire finish() in the onResume() also after detecting where the intent came from, but a bunch of unnecessary coding can be eliminated if the quick launch intent can simply be disabled.

General :: Upside - Down Recent Apps?

Aug 5, 2013

One thing bugs me though. I've had to set ro.fs.fakerotation to 180 so that my tablet auto-rotates correctly, but in "recent apps" all of the thumbnails are upside-down.

I have a feeling it may be a matter of modifying systemui.apk but I'm not sure.

I use CyanogenMod 9 nightlies for Samsung Galaxy S II GT-i9100. I wonder if there is flashable zip or something, that adds "Clear All" button in Recent Apps multitasking screen, much like in Galaxy S III, that swipes out all apps from Recent Apps and closes them. Is there something like this, installable or flashable?

General :: Adding (Kill All) Button To Recent Apps Window?

Aug 22, 2013

Recently I've ordered a Cube U9GT5 tablet and so far it's great, however I miss a small feature and really makes the life easier, and that is the button to kill all apps in Recent Apps window. I have this feature on my I9000 running GamerzROM (4.2.2) and I really miss it on my tablet.

The Cube is also running on 4.2.2 and is rooted. Is there any tweak or an app that can add this button?

Android :: Recent Apps Seem To Have Google-provided Ads Is There Some New API For This?

May 5, 2009

Several recent applications (e.g. Shazam) have text and image ads which are handled by Google. I can't seem to find how they did this. Is there some new API that you can use to display ads given some key, similar to how the maps API works? Or is this something that developers individually negotiate?

Samsung Epic 4G : Way To Access Recent Apps?

Nov 12, 2010

I know that you can hold the home button down and wait for the list of recently used apps to come up - but for some reason, the second or so that it takes for the long press drives me crazy! Is there a way to make a screen icon that will take you to your recent apps? I would rather not install a whole new launcher to get this option - so are there any lightweight ones that do just that?

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 :: Recent Apps Change In 2.2 / Brings Main Activity To Foreground

Jul 24, 2010

The recent apps display seems to function quite differently from earlier versions on 2.2. Try the following for instance: 1) Open an app 2) Click on something that takes you to another activity in the same app 3) Press the home button 4) Press and hold the home button to get the recent list of apps - select the app you chose in step 1 5) You'll be taken to whatever activity in that app is specified as the main/launcher Activity, rather than the Activity on top of the stack (as it was previously) It makes it appear to the user that the application has exited when the home screen button was pressed. I don't have my app set to clear history on launch or anything like that, and I can replicate it on the emulator and with any app on my device (Contacts, Gmail, Engadget etc) Anyone else notice this? Anyone know any reason for the changes? I must admit I quite dislike the new method.

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..

General :: Recent Calls On Samsung Galaxy 3?

Jul 4, 2013

I just got the Samsung Galaxy 3 which came with Jellybean going from a Droid 2 with a older version of the operating system. Is there a way to dial directly from Recent Calls without selecting the actually contact. I can't find a way to do it. I have to click the contact and then click the little green phone icon. On my old Droid the little green phone icon was all the way to the right of the contact and you could just dial the directly. Also, is there a way to make it default to Recent instead of the Keypad when you select the Phone icon. Or is there a Shortcut for Recent Calls that I can get. Again, there was a Shortcut that came with my old Droid that I was able to use.

General :: Can Make Recent Calls Tab Default Screen Rather Than Dial Pad Tab

Can you make "recent calls" tab the default screen rather than the dial pad tab?

For me, chances are that I'd call someone that I've recently called or talked to.

I rarely use the dial pad anyway. I don't use the dial pad tab as often as the contacts tab.

Android : StartActivity Intent Fails When Certain Apps Are Running

Jan 27, 2010

I am running into a critical conflict of sorts. My app is a remote service which essentially starts an activity when the screen goes to sleep. How it does this is very simple via screen off broadcast receiver and then an explicit intent to start the activity as a new task. The activity is basically in charge of responding to key events and displaying some simple text.

Thanks to a few window flags added in 2.0, activities can do this. They can be created in a way that either puts them on top of the lockscreen, or completely dismiss the lockscreen. This way they basically have focus without the lockscreen having to be dismissed by user. The alarm clock in 2.0 uses the flags to wake up the device and show the alarm dialog. I use them to place my activity when the screen sleeps so the user sees a custom wakeup lockscreen. The reason we create it at screen off is to get rid of lag the user experiences at wakeup involving first seeing the lockscreen, then seeing the activity appear. Also doing it immediately at sleep allows it to have focus so it can handle key events effectively.

The process works perfectly except in certain apps. So far, it seems the bug is consistent while browser (and even dolphin browser) as well as the facebook app are running. The bug never happens in GTalk or Launcher. It is rare but can still be duplicated in the messaging app every so often. I can't figure out why my activity doesn't get created at sleep while these apps are active. My remote service still gets the screen off broadcast and does the startActivity for the explicit intent, and that's all I get in the log. My onCreate is not being called. Instead it gets called when we wake the screen up again.

I have tried, as a control, to hold the partial wakelock starting when my remote service gets created, and the issue persists. So I don't believe it is a problem that the CPU has gone to sleep. Since only these particular apps cause the issue to duplicate, I can't imagine why the activity start fails. What could those apps be doing to interfere with another app's ability to get created? I use singleInstance as the launch mode so that I can ensure that the activity will never be able to be recalled by user process. I want it to go away when user unlocks and it is working fine like this, as long as it is able to be created. The singleInstance ensures I can have the same lockscreen handle an intent to do something specific based on user actions that the remote service monitors.

my source code can be viewed on my project page. http://code.google.com/p/mylockforandroid/source/browse/#svn/trunk/myLock/src/i4nc4mp/myLock

The issue happens to both my CustomLockService and NoLockService variations. These two services will start Lockscreen or ShowWhenLockedActivity and the bug is witnessed. The build illustrating the bug's end result-- user has to try to unlock 3 times due to the bug because on wakeup when the oncreate finally succeeds, user is seeing the activity when normally it would have auto-dismissed thanks to key event logic that also isn't seeming to happen due to the delayed onCreate, so they have to send it to sleep again. Now that the activity is properly done being started, and screen is asleep, the expected functionality happens at next wakeup-- can be downloaded also from the downloads tab.

This seems like an extremely irrational thing to be caused only by specific apps. I am quite baffled and out of ideas for a solution unless I've made some critical mistake in my activity definitions.

Android :: Package Name For Droid Apps To Use Intent To Launch Market App From Web?

May 7, 2010

I'm creating a mobile website that will include a page from which people can download relevant apps that we recommend. I've found instructions for creating the links to launch the Market but this assumes that you are the developer of the app in question and know the exact package name.

Is there any way to get the package name, other than just contacting the developers and asking?

Also, it turns out that those instructions don't really work for creating web hyperlinks. They only give you a URI to reference in a string of Java code in another Android app. Our site is in Drupal, so Java is not going to work.

For the iPhone, I found easy instructions for getting the URL/link style I need from the iTunes store, so I'm looking for info like that.
