Android :: Applications Launching And Running In Background?

Aug 4, 2010

Every so often I check my memory with Advanced Task Manager and I see certain applications running in the background and my available memory has dropped quite a bit. Now I am using the HTC Incredible so I still have about 127 MB free, however what concerns me the most is why the programs are even launching themselves in the first place. I could see some application having to start themselves, like a twitter client or an email client, however one of the programs that seems to be launching itself is the eBay app. I installed the app in case I wanted to view an ebay listing however I never use the program and it still seems to launch itself. Is this an example of a poor application design (i.e. ebay app) or is there some other reason these programs are launching themselves?

Android :: Stay Running In Background Exiting Applications

Jun 20, 2010

I've been researching the OS a bit and I can't really tell what happens to programs when you hit the home button to leave them. Do they stay running in the background? After a little bit of time does the system close them out? What happens to them? I have a Sprint Evo and I don't see a way to close them out. I know that battery life can always be helped, and I would hate to leave them running all day just sucking the life out of the phone if they don't have to be.

Jul 16, 2010

I noticed that I end up lgoing to advanced task manager and ending a ton of processes and apps constantly. I remember within a few minutes I of just ending a set, there were about 19 more running again. I feel like my phone is bloated right now and all I do is check gmail and google voice and I end up having a bunch of other crap running. My phone was officially charged 100% around 12am EST this morning and its less than 15% now.

Emulator Launching But App Not Running?

Aug 5, 2012

I have problem launching my app. The emulator will load, but the app won't launch. The progress bar at the lower right of eclipse is just stuck at 100%. I've tried reinstalling everything including my JDK's and adt plugin. Also tried kill-server and start-server method but it didn't work. There's even nothing written in console or logcat. I even tried waiting for an hour hoping it would run.

I have windows 7 64 bit.

General :: Applications Close Automatically Right After Launching

Oct 6, 2013

Suddenly, my android phone have trouble with the issue that some of Applications close automatically right after launching, especially right after I reboot phone. What are the cause ?

After reboot, my phone still has about 200MB RAM free. however, after reboot about 1 or 2 minutes if I open Facebook,/xda,/viber ...it will automatically close immediately and back to home screen. BUT if I take the phone rest about 15mins, it becomes operating normally. No trouble with the issue that some of Applications close automatically right after launching anymore. So I don't know what's happen.

Android :: Android Launching An Application Chooser With Appropriate List Of Applications

Aug 16, 2010

Although I have seen several threads and tutorials on this topic, I guess I still have some confusion on how an application can be chosen from a list of applications to display a file.

I have a Activity which has a list view in it. This list view is bound with file paths (so a file browser of sorts). When we click on a specific file type, I need a list of applications that can open that file.

So far this is what I have in the OnItemClick for the list item:

CODE:............

When I run this on my phone, the error is:
No Activity found to handle Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW cat=[android.intent.category.DEFAULT] dat=file:///

When I do the same in a file browser application (downloaded from the marketplace), I get two options (QuickOffice and Word to Go), both of which I have installed on my phone.

Could someone guide me as to what else is needed here? Things I have tried besides the above:


Add the following entries to the manifest:

CODE:................

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?

Android :: How To Set Applications Background Same As Of Phone?

I am trying to figure out some way to determine the current background on a phone and then set that background as my own in my application to create a seamless transition between my application and the phone. However I haven't been able to find any functions for this at Androids SDK site. Setting android:theme="@style/Theme.NoBackground" inside my Manifest almost does what I want, but it still has the icons in the background.

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!
