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?

Motorola Droid 2 :: Phone Randomly Open Apps In Background At All Times / This Will Affect Battery Life?

Nov 11, 2010

Just got my D2 yesterday after spending way too long with the Eris... so far I'm loving it, but I have one question: do everyone's phones seem to randomly open 10-20 apps in background at all times? These aren't even apps I use, like a Sudoku game I haven't tried once yet. I'm not too worried about it, since performance seems to be fine, but I'm wondering if this will affect battery life.

Nov 12, 2009

I had my physical keyboard open and I started to get word prediction at the bottom of the screen again. But I cant figure out how to get it every time the physical keyboard is open. Most of the time I get nothing but this is the second time I have seen this at the bottom. Anyone know what going on with this. There isn't a setting for it for built in keyboard settings page. I wish it would work all the time because it is a nice feature.

Motorola Droid : Test 3.5mm Jack For Sound Popping (song Included)?

Nov 17, 2009

There have been multiple threads of people saying they are experiencing sound popping when using the 3.5mm jack, most of them say its on Pandora others will say that it happens on all mp3's or a few mp3's that otherwise sound perfect when played on their computer. To test I want to see if its a defect in hardware or if it just another Droid Does problem. I always consistently experience sound popping with my Sony headphones while playing Home by Michael Buble. If you go to youtube and search "home buble" play the first search result in high quality and turn the media volume to maximum. Listen in about 45 seconds and let me know if you hear popping.

I have a small doubt about the ads popping in the free apps. The question is does it try to access the 3G/2G when their are disabled while those free apps are running in the background? I hope by unchecking the background data would be prevent them just in case they do access 3g/2g when running in the background?

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?

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 Droid Eris :: Keyboard Not Popping Up

Dec 7, 2009

My daughter and I both got Eris' [Erii?] with Verizon's 2 for 1. I noticed while loading some stuff to hers last night though that when you type on the keyboard, you don't get the letters popping up (i.e. on mine, when I hit a letter on the keyboard, it pops up a bubble showing what letter I hit for a half second or so, this doesn't occur on hers).I've looked everywhere I can find but don't see anywhere to turn that on/off. Any suggestions?

HTC Droid Eris :: Mobile Network ON - Can't See That Have Any Network Traffic Or Any Apps Running In Background That Are Syncing Data At All

May 29, 2010

My eris has always has pretty alright battery life, what I would expect out of a smartphone, if unplugged at 9AM it usually was running on its last leg around midnight. I've had it for over 5 months now, I've always had it activated on alltel, I installed the 2.1v3 leak before the official OTA was out and just lately it seems like there something very wrong with my battery life...

If I unplug my phone at 9AM within the past week and occasionaly check and respond to a text message, my battery had been down to almost 30% by NOON... what?..

I have noticed that if I disable Mobile Network (3g/1x data), the thing lasts all day and some... If I turn mobile network ON, I can't see that I have any network traffic or any apps running in the background that are syncing data at all... I've had google account sync mess up on me before and have to reset my google account because it gets stuck in a syncing loop, but its not doing that, already checked. Very weird.

Anyone thing it could be something wrong in my ##PROGRAM#/##778# provisioning menu, maybe something got changed?.. Maybe it could be do to Alltel's AT&T merger that's happening right now, maybe some 3G tower's radios are turned off or something...

Motorola Droid :: So Many Background Programs Running?

It seems like whenever I play around on the phone for a bit and the go to close my apps with TaskPanel the following are always running even though I didn't touch them:

Alarm Clock
Corporate Calendar
Calendar
Settings
Messaging (even though I have not used it at all)
and one other that isn't showing up right now but was something like mobile.? or

Some of these I don't care if they're running (I assume the Calendar is running since I need it to run for my Google calendar widget to work), but why is Alarm Clock and Corporate calendar always running? Is there a way to turn these off?

HTC Droid Eris :: Auto-suggest Dictionary Modifications / Delete Words Don't Want Popping Up?

Dec 5, 2009

I am loving my Eris and looking forward to the Dec 11 update.

I am just wondering if the auto-suggest dictionary is user-modifiable. I use compact QWERTY (like SureType on BB). When I type "we", what comes out is "qe" which is the default word it wants to use. Perhaps I used it once and saved it? How can I delete the words I don't want popping up anymore (especially the ones I may have added)?

Motorola Droid :: Running UD 1.0.0 (No GPS / WiFi And Background Light)

Oct 22, 2010

I've been running UD 1.0.0 since the day it dropped, when I installed it I was on vacation and wasn't using my droid much other then playing around with the setting and some internet browsing, like all good things my vacation came to a end at work my phone is used all day texting, incoming and out going calls all day, listening to my scanner app. That's when I found out UD 1.0.0 wasn't going to work for me, I have two batteries and by the end of the work day ( 8-12 hrs) one battery would be dead and the other down to 20%.

I tried different kernels, running only the basic's (no GPS, no WiFi no background light) still got the same results. UD 1.0.0 is a great ROM, but it just doesn't gel with my droid. So I'm back to UD 8.0 with slayher's 1100 kernel set at 800 mhz (1380 quadrant)and the Black N Bold theme running smooth and fast with no problems at all. Best thing is after 8-12 hrs of phone use texting and listening to my scanner I still come home with 20% - 40% battery without even using the spare.

Motorola Droid :: Battery Saving And Background Data

Apr 6, 2010

I just recently bought a Motorola Droid, and I was pretty shocked at how quickly the battery ran out of juice. I looked around on the net and found a tip that said to turn off the Background Data option, so I did that, but I find this to be a very convenient feature. I'm just wondering if there's some sort of app or widget that will let me quickly toggle the Background Data option on and off for a quick sync to push all of my stuff in whenever I want it.

Motorola Droid :: Google Latitude - Running In Background?

Feb 25, 2010

I use Google Latitude with several friends, but have noticed that when I run it in the background, my last know location on the friends phone shows where I "stopped" but never updates. Example: I leave my house with Google Maps/Latitude running and decide I want to listen to DroidLive. Once I switch to DroidLive it appears that Latitude stops broadcasting my locations and my friends see that I'm in the middle of a highway for 30-40 minutes until I kill my music and go back to the maps. Is this a known "bug" or is it something that just doesn't work? I thought that the processes would continue to work, but I might be wrong. I also notice that when launching another app while in Google Maps that my GPS indicator also stops until I get back into the Maps.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Turning On Background Data Not Allow To Go To Page?

I've always been able to go to the webpage there. I just turned on Background Data again since I'll be home for the weekend and tried to go to the webpage and it showed a lock on the address bar and wouldn't load. Why would turning on Background Data not allow me to go to the page? Could it be something else?

Motorola Droid : Having Default Orange Background / Minor Annoyance

Dec 18, 2009

Has anyone else noticed this? While responding to a SMS (using the physical keyboard), I will hit the "Enter" button on the keypad to send the message. Once it's sent, I will close the slider and hit the Home button (or Back button to get to my conversation list) to get back to the home screen, and either the "Message" icon or "Phone" icon is highlighted (has the default orange background) and you have to touch something on the home screen to make it go away.

I know this isn't anything HUGE, just a minor annoyance that happens to me. I have restarted the phone, but it still does it about 70% of the time. Curious if anyone else has noticed this or if it was just a specific glitch on my phone?
