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.

Android :: Need Droid Apps That Alter Normal Phone Operations

Feb 19, 2010

So i was wondering if its possible to for an application that i would write to be constantly running in the background and alter regular phone operations. For example this could be something like as soon as you receive a text from anyone you forward it automatically to another number. Is something like this at all possible? Just to be clear I don't want to solve that particular problem through some other means, just want to know if apps can accomplish that. Also if that is possible is it possible for an app that i write to alter more immediate and instant things, like an incoming call.

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.

HTC Desire : Carrier-Installed Apps - Find The System/apps Folder

Sep 23, 2010

I have recently purchased an unlocked HTC Desire. As you may or may not know, here in Australia the only carrier of the Desire is Telstra. However I use 3 mobile so that's the reason I purchased an unlocked device.

My problem is that my phone has about a dozen or more apps which are installed by Telstra and uninstallable. Most of them are 100% useless because I'm not even on their network and I'd like them out of my applications list.

I've had a read around and I saw something about being able to remove them by deleting the file and then uninstalling them using a command prompt program.

Would anyone please be able to give me detailed instructions on how to do this because I'm not sure how to find the system/apps folder and I'm also not sure on how to get the command prompt thing to work.

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?

HTC Desire :: Alter Text Message Box Size

Jul 7, 2010

I had my Desire for for a couple of months & love it but the mrs has just got a Wildfire & i have noticed when i text a message the TO box and the TAP TO COMPOSE boxes are about the same size with a big black box in between them that you cannot drag to alter size when the phone is held upright but on the Wildfire the TAP TO COMPOSE box is the is massive with a send & a attach button on the side when held upright. How do you alter this on the desire? When both phones are turned on the side the TAP TO COMPOSE box is big on both. Also the Wildfire has a torch app which uses the LED on the camera which is not on the Desire but the screen is so dull compared to my phone.

Motorola Droid :: Background Apps Keep Popping Up

Nov 8, 2009

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?

Nexus :: How N1 Deals With Apps Running In Background?

Mar 27, 2010

I have used a number of task killers and I am still confused how the N1 deals with apps running in the background. I will kill all apps and then either not open any more or maybe open one and all of a sudden 5/10 mints later, some apps appear to be running again in the background. How can this be if I haven't activated them?

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.

HTC Droid Eris :: Apps Running In Background When I've Not Opened Them

May 14, 2010

Lately I've been noticing that some apps are running in the background when I've not opened them. Footprints, Voice dialer, Messages (I use handcent), Peep and Music are the ones I've noticed and (coincidentally) are all apps I don't use. I only notice them when using Advanced Task Killer and have to kill them. It's a new issue so is it possible another app I downloaded recently is to blame? Am i maybe just insane?

Android :: Apps Running In Background Destroy Battery?

Nov 26, 2009

Anyone using this? Sure it has a price, but this thing isnt using ANY battery life on my phone... I thought these apps running in the background (chat apps) were supposed to destroy battery? I leave this thing on nearly 8 hours a day, and hardly see any battery drain. The UI could use a few tweaks and themes, but for reliability its awesome!

Sprint HTC Hero :: Stopping Apps From Running In Background

Nov 19, 2009

I have checked for related threads to see if this was formerly addressed. It's been discussed generally, but neither specifically to the CDMA HTC Hero or the procedure I'm going to summarize below:

If you press:

Home --> and hold it for a couple of seconds

You get pictures (icons) of the last six apps you've run.

I was in the Sprint store today and the rep who also uses the HTC Hero told me there's an App that stops them, which can be downloaded at the Android Market.

It's called " Kill-Something? "

It's an App we can download that will force these off and perhaps save battery power, or at least stop them from running in the background.

Questions

1) Anyone know the name of this App?

2) Is it useful? Have you had any experiences with it either positive or negative?

3) Any other tips (in layman terms please) on stopping Apps from running in the background on Sprint HTC Hero?

HTC Hero :: Phone Doesn't Keep Apps Running In Background

Nov 10, 2010

My htc hero can't seem to keep apps running in the background, save for a few, such as the engadget app. when I press home from the internet browser or the PDF viewer and try to get back into the application, the internet browser will resend info to get the page I was on back and the PDF viewer will restart just like the browser and end up in a PDF file I wasn't in before. It seems that the applications restart themselves when I get out of them. Also, I just downloaded the 2.1 update for TELUS, so I'm not sure if thats to blame.
