General :: When Screen Off Continue To Run Apps In Background Like Some Video Apps

May 6, 2014

I use rooted 4.3 Samsung S4. Some apps like MX player can play video when the screen is off. I want to play games of other video apps when the screen is off. For example:

1. I use Android to watch some CNN and bloomberg TV (not radio) that I want to play in the background with the screen off

2. I am playing some games which require the apps to be opened and the screen on to get some special stuff.

General :: Android YouTube Apps Stops Playing Music If Screen Is Off Or Going To Background

Mar 17, 2013

When playing music with the stock Music Player application on my phone and turning the phone screen off or multitasking, the music is still able to play in the background. Is it possible to do the same with the stock YouTube app? I want to let the audio of the YouTube video I am watching to keep playing when I either exit out of the app or when I press the power button on my phone to turn off the screen to save battery. Although I can just set my phone screen to not go off when idle for a certain amount of time, but then again, that is battery consuming.

Phone information:

-Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G from T-Mobile
-Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4
-Rooted
-No Custom Rom Installed

General :: Does Stock Launcher Continue To Run In Background

Apr 18, 2014

I just don't like using stock launcher or whatever you wanna call it, I've come accustomed to using third party launchers..if i'm using Apex or something.. does the stock launcher continue to run in the background and drain more battery then if I were to just use stock? Is there anyway to disable something if my phone is rooted so I can continue to use Apex but stop the default launcher from running as well? Or does android not work like that and if I have apex it cancels out the default launcher?

HTC Desire :: Apps To Alter How Other Apps Run In Background?

Jul 21, 2010

As above, are there any apps that can do this?A big bug bear of mine is that if im loading a particularly slow web page and want / need to be doing something else, if I open another app, effectively sending the browser to thr back ground, loading of the page stalls until the browser is called up again.It's not a big deal, but being so used to my blackberry loading pages in the background, I kind of miss it.

General :: Evo 4G LTE Running Jelly Bean / Paranoid Android 2.13 - Audio Apps In Background Getting Killed With No Warning?

Sep 24, 2012

I'm wondering if I'm not alone in this: I have a rooted Evo 4G LTE running Jelly Bean/Paranoid Android 2.13. I'm running into an issue with running audio apps like Google Play Music and Doggcatcher. Basically sometimes if I'm playing something and I switch to another app, a few moments or minutes later the audio dies and the audio app gets killed. I can tell because when I enter back into Doggcatcher, the loading screen starts up as if it wasn't running before. Is this a case of over aggressive task killing? Is there a way to prevent this at all?

Android :: How To Play Video With Screen Off Player In Background?

Nov 30, 2009

I love my Eris BUT it is inferior in one critical area (too me) - I like to use my player t"watch" VIDEO podcasts or tivo'd news shows. Much of the time, I do not need to actually see the video (just want to hear it). So is their a video app that will let me play the video and turn the screen off and/or play video while I use the device to do other tasks. Seems like a simple feature but I cant find it anywhere for the Android.

Android :: EVO Apps Running In Background

Jun 13, 2010

I have an EVO and I have a problem with it. I downloaded the app Advanced Task Killer to take care of apps running in the background. However sometimes when I pull it up I find that things like Sprint Navigation, Qik, Voice Dialer, and sometimes others are running without me pulling them up. My question is, how do I keep these apps from doing this, because they kill my battery when they come on and I don't know it?

Android :: Running Apps In Background

Feb 22, 2010

I am new to Android, previous Crack Berry addict here. On the BB I could load Google Maps (including Latitude) to keep my position updated on Google Latitude online (I use it when I go riding on my motorcycle to give my wife a way to check if I'm still moving (= not dead)). Even if I shut down Maps, I could elect to have Latitude run in the background, so it would still update my position. How do I do this in Android? When I 'exit' Maps, it shuts it down, including Latitude, as far as I can tell. Can Android run Latitude in the background, or do I need to keep Maps open all the time?

It's my first smart phone and I can't believe I haven't gotten one before this. It is such an amazing phone. My question is that even though I have the advanced task killer on my phone the programs like corporate calendar keep opening up and other such ones. I can let my phone sit for an hour and have over 10 programs running. Is there a setting I am missing that can stop these things from popping up?

HTC EVO 4G : Add To Home Shortcuts Cause Apps To Background Launch

Jun 7, 2010

Leading up to my purchase of the new EVO I familiarized myself with some battery-life-saving tips. One of the tips was associated with reducing the number of Widgets on the Home Screen(s) that are pulling data in the background.

QUESTION: if one doesn't use widgets but uses App icons and Shortcuts does the addition of those NON-widget items cause the associated apps to launch by themselves in the background MORE THAN if they were NOT "short-cutted" onto the Home Screen pages??

I'm trying to determine how/what I'm doing that might cause apps to launch in the background when I don't really want them to. I'm using Advanced Task Killer to see what is running in the background and have NO CLUE why some stuff is turning on when they do. A recent LARGE list of running apps that I did NOT turn on coincidentally coincided with some Home Screen short-cut non-widget add-ons I recently placed.
