HTC EVO 4G :: How To Exit Apps And Stop Them

Aug 23, 2010

Without going into menu-->settings--->apps--->manage apps---> and selecting force stop for running apps that should have been stopped when i left them...? Or am I screwing things up by hitting "force stop". e.g. espn app, cbssports fantasy football app, Network app...none of these have a menu choice to "exit" or stop when i am done with them...OR...should i not worry about it 'cause its really not causing much battery drain?

General :: Can't Stop / Exit Some Apps From Go Launcher

Mar 15, 2012

Just got a Galaxy Skyrocket (jumped ship from iPhone 4) and switched the launcher to Go Launcher EX. However, I noticed that I can't exit/quit some of the apps by choosing the "close" option for the running app. In Go Launcher, you can get a list of (background) running apps and if you tap the icon of an app, you get a pop-up with options "close", "lock', "goto", and "info". I would think by choosing "close', it would "exit" or "quit" the app, and clear the memory footprint. However, for some apps, like Facebook, Tweeter (actually TweetCaster), etc.--they will disappear for a while and come back again. So the "close" action does not really "kill" the app.

How can I really kill the app? I don't want Tweeter to be constantly running in the background and pulling down hundreds of tweets.

Also how can I stop some apps, e.g. Facebook, from pre-loading? I don't want these apps running in the background eating up the resources when I don't need them. There must be a way, Just haven't figure it out yet.

Android :: Stop All Started Services On Application Close / Exit

Apr 18, 2010

Is it possible to stop all started services when the user hits the Home Button? I use:
startService(new Intent(ClassName.this, ClassName2.class));
stopService(new Intent(ClassName.this, ClassName2.class));

This means I will have to somehow add the 'stopService()' for 7+ of my app classes
I've researched this topic and I think there's 'onTerminate' but still not sure how this should be implemented.

Android :: Stop Autloading Of Apps

Oct 17, 2010

How do you keep apps from starting? I noticed things such as the alarm clock, moxier, and a few other programs will just load themselves. Yes, I have the task killer. I find it annoying plus it kills the battery and slows the phone down having programs loading up without you selecting them. Can we keep them from loading in the first place?

Android :: Stop Piracy Of Apps

May 4, 2010

I've spent the last few weeks developing a new tool to stop piracy of my paid apps on the Android Market. In a nutshell, licensing is tied directly to purchase verification. There is no license server to manage, no key for the user to enter. User experience is basically uninterrupted from normal application purchase.

I'm excited about this, as my paid apps are now reaching piracy rates as high as 90% on some days,with the average somewhere around 75%. For pirated apps, purchase verification (and subsequently licensing) will fail after a certain number of attempts, and pirates will be left with anything from a "buy me" nag, to a disabled app (behavior is configurable).

Android Market is the only supported purchase validation target so far. Others will be forthcoming if demand warrants.

This isn't a perfect solution (I have yet to find a perfect licensing solution), but I feel it is the best balance of security, features, and workflow that I've seen to date.

You can find a write up, download, and purchasing information here: http://keyeslabs.com/joomla/index.php/projects/auto-app-licensing

Android :: Apps From 2.1 Stop Working With 2.2

May 27, 2010

I've just updated my nexus one to 2.2. Now all of my (own and some from the market) apps throw exceptions and were closed.

It's weird, in the app I'm developing atm, there it displays only my start page with buttons, but when I tap on one button to fire an intent to another activity my app gets closed with an exception.

Yesterday before the update everything worked fine.

The same thing in my emulator:

I have two devices, one with API level 7 and one with level 8. Level 7 worked fine, but level 8 killed my app :

What is the problem and how can I solve this? I'm desperatly trying to get it working again :

General :: How To Stop Apps That Keep Restarting Themselves

Dec 29, 2013

How do I stop Google play store and play services from running non stop in the background?? I have my location turned off, and privacy guard turned on, but somehow play services and Google maps can get my location? Google play store runs something called "daily hygiene"and all three of these apps restart themselves when I kill them. I don't need play services running, when only the location part of it is running. When I try and disable autostart, receivers, freeze them, use advanced freeze through ROM toolbox, they either revert back instantly, or as soon as the phone reboots.how to get this crap to stop running when it's not being used, and stop getting location, or whatever other things I'm trying to keep private?

Motorola Droid :: Stop Apps From DLing To SD

HTC Desire :: Apps To Stop Reduce Battery Consumption

Has anyone else noticed the battery charge does not seem to last well? I have the wifi turned off and only enable it when required but just general usage seems to sap the power quite quickly. At the moment I'm not sure a full charge would even last a day! Are there any smart apps out there to help manage this? Do widgets relly use that much power? The Android OS itself seems to use an alarming amount of power as does everything else!

Android :: Stop Background Apps From Causing GC And Eating Up CPU

Nov 17, 2010

In looking at some performance issues for a game I'm developing I came across some interesting facts. Although I've minimised GC caused by my app, other apps can still cause one. Also, during framerate drops in my game, I've noticed things like the weather service, email checked, etc. going nuts in the background. (This is on Android 1.6).

I don't really want to block incoming calls, i.e. go into flight mode, before the game starts. I think it's important for the game to be interrupted if there's an incoming call. However, while playing, I don't think people care about weather updates, email updates, texts, etc.

Is there an interface that will let me control what is "active" in the background and what should be "suspended"?

HTC Hero : Stop Apps From Opening Up When Phone Boots

Dec 8, 2009

The only way I know this is having installed a task manager. There would be no other way of knowing this.
I have about 14 apps downloaded form the market. Not too many, but I was susrprised to see applications like shop savvy and My Backup automatically start up when my phone boots up. Whilst in the apps themselves, there seems to be no way of stopping this behaviour. Why would they do this ? Why is there no kill switch fro these apps natively for android ? It seems there is a lot of chatter about whether or not task managers are good for the platform, or whether we should just let android do it's thing on it's own. I'm really in two minds whether to carry on using a TM or not. It's for reasons such as shop savvy opening up on it's own when I don't want it to that I'm tempted to keep in, if only for my own piece of mind, and the ability to kill apps that don't need to be on. This MUST have a direct correlation with battery usage.

Anyway, I have to say that I've had most platforms, iphone, blackberry, symbian, and Android really does seem to me to be the best one yet. I am extremely happy with my Hero.

HTC Incredible : Stop Google Auto Restore Of Apps

But where can I find this cache that google is pulling this stuff from and completely delete this?

General :: Stop Apps From Starting Automatically / Overriding App Permissions?

Nov 2, 2012

Some backround on this post. I own 2 android devices, a Samsung Galaxy i9003 and since yesterday, a Nexus 7.

I have ditched my Galaxy as a phone and gone to Blackberry due to battery issues, and apps on my Samsung draining the battery from full to empty in the space of a few hours, so I am now very careful about what I install. Since removing almost all the apps (and the SIM card) from the galaxy, I now have a battery live measured in days (including watching video) rather than hours just sitting doing nothing...

I understand the use of apps auto-starting themselves to provide notifications, such as Facebook, Twitter & Accuweather, but even though I do use these apps for what they are, I do not need them running all the time to provide a notification: The added "work" in starting the app to check updates is worth the extra battery life I get, as if I leave things alone to be automatically managed, my battery life is divided by 10... and having to flip the phone in and out of flight mode is a pain... (especially when you forget to activate it in the afternoon after charging and at 3 AM in the morning you have no battery left to call a taxi...)

So, what I would like to understand is this: Where does android store the information on autostarting applications? Even if I use a task killer, some apps will restart later on. Android must have some sort of task scheduler to restart registered apps after a certain amount of time has passed or on certain events.

how Android manages this list - and more importantly, how to change it, and also if there is any way to override the registered permissions of an app once it has been installed?
