Android :: Launching Home Replacement Application

Jun 4, 2009

Is it possible to launch other apps from my app like the application launcher or home screen do? I don't want to try a home replacement app. At least would a widget on home screen be able to launch other applications? Also can a widget on the (default) home screen receive swipe events (before a touch event)?

Android :: Overriding Home Button For Car Home Replacement Application

May 19, 2010

I have been working on a replacement for the stock Car Home app for a bit, and I am completely stumped on how to override the Home button so that my app will be brought back to the foreground whenever the phone is docked. This is the way that Car Home works, so there must be a way. It seems that BroadcastReceivers won't work, because the intent that is broadcast whenever the Home button is pressed will still cause the default homescreen app to launch; I cannot prevent it. I can override the Home button from within my app, but that does me no good since this needs to work when the user is outside my app. Car Home also does not do anything weird like set itself as the default homescreen app while it's running (I checked the logcat to make sure).
I've been really beating my head against the wall on this. Does anyone have any ideas, or can you at least point me in the right direction?

Android :: Bug In Activity Stack If Launching From Home Icon?

Jul 24, 2009

I've noticed some strange behaviour with resuming a task from a Home icon.Very easy to replicate, just create a new bare bones android project using eclipse, don't need to add anything. Then follow these steps:

1. In eclipse, Run the project on a emulator or device.

2. Once the app installs and launches the first activity, press Home key.

3. Launch the app again by pressing its icon.

4. Press Back key. Now this part seems wrong, you'll go back to the original activity in the stack, instead of the Home screen, even though its been previously launched and what you expect is it to bring back the stack as it was left, with one activity. If you repeat steps 2-3, it will just keep adding the same activity to the stack.

That is until you press Back all the way through the stack to the Home screen.Now this behaviour will never again replicate. It will be the correct (?) behaviour of bringing back the stack history at the state it was when Home was pressed. Note there are no behavioural modifications, this is just a default application. However, I tried many combinations of launchModes and stack clearing, they had no effect on the first run. Unless I'm interpreting the documentation wrong, when the user presses the Home key, the task is moved in to the background and simply brought back the next time they press the app icon? Why is the app icon altering the task it creates, if it already exists (with no flag modifications)?

Android :: Home Replacement That Offers 7 Screens?

Feb 24, 2010

I'm looking for an app that allows me to have more than 5 screens on my nexus one. Currently I have home++ but it doesn't allow for live wallpapers and the app selection is really outdated looking imo. I tried launcher++ but it too had the app selection ugliness.

What i really want is a home replacement that mimics the normal launcher on 2.1 but has extra screens. I don't need anything fancy, i just want more screens and perhaps an infinity scroll feature. is there anything like that? even a custom rom maybe? does cyanogen offer more screens?

Android :: Application Not Re-launching

Mar 29, 2010

I have written an application which calls native methods through JNI. In the native library 4 threads are started. On USB removal, the application is to be closed including the native threads. Upon receiving the USB removal event, we are trying to kill the threads (pthread_kill() ) and then finish (using finish()) the activity. After reconnecting the USB, the application is not launching due to memory corruption. In DDMS, it shows the threads are still attached to bionic. As the threads are not closed, I feel the resources were not released properly. If I reconnect again then application launches and works fine and the same repeats on every launch.

To solve this problem Can I use System.gc() ? Can I use pthread_exit() 1st and then pthread_join instead of pthread_kill ? Whats the procedure in Android to kill the native threads and also the application ? After the application is closed, will it not be listed in DDMS ?

Android :: How The Use Same Instances When Launching Application Twice

Apr 14, 2009

My app has 4 activities on the stack A->B->C->D (top)

If you press home and re-enter the application, another instance of A is started, so the stack is A->B->C->D->A (top). I know this because when I press BACK, A is popped off and I now see D (instead of going to the Home screen).

What I want is that when the user re-enters the app, they re-enter on the same activity they were in before (D).

Android :: How To Use Same Instances When Launching Application Twice

Mar 17, 2009

Is it possible to re-use all the instances of Activities and Services when an application is launched twice. For instance: 1/ I start my application APP1. Some activities are launched and a service is started. 2/ I click "Home" device button 3/ I can see the icon the launch again my application APP1 4/ I click on it and the APP1 is launched twice

I would like to re-use the existing the instances of Activities and Services from the first launch. I guess it is related to "SingleTop" or "SingleTask" but it doesn't seem to work.

Android :: Launching External Application From App

Dec 29, 2009

I would like to launch an app the user selects from within my application. However, I'm not sure how I'd go about doing this. I've tried this:

Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setAction(Contacts.Intents.SHOW_OR_CREATE_CONTACT);
startActivity(intent);

But this seems to throw an error and force close my application. I also tried adding:

<action android:name="Contacts.Intents.SHOW_OR_CREATE_CONTACT"/>

in the AndroidManifest file, but to no avail.

A look at Logcat shows that it's an "IOexception - no such file or directory". A couple of questions arise from this. I read through the Android docs and noticed that the Contact.Intents class is deprecated. However, it's successor, ContactContracts is aimed at API level 5 whereas I'm targeting API level 3. Could this be the problem? Also, I've hardcoded this application into the code. Is there a way to retrieve the intents of any application the user selects so that they can be launched?

Android :: Launching Another Activity From Application

May 22, 2010

I am trying to launch another application from my Activity. Something weird happens when I am running this code :
Intent myIntent = new Intent( Intent.ACTION_MAIN, null );
myIntent.addCategory( Intent.CATEGORY_LAUNCHER );
myIntent.setFlags( Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_RESET_TASK_IF_NEEDED );
ComponentName compName=new ComponentName(myArray[i][0], myArray[i] [1] );
// String[][] myArray myIntent.setComponent( compName ); startActivity( myIntent );

I have this error :
android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit activity class { com.android.settings/com.android.settings.Settings};
Have you declared this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml?
But when I replace this line
// myArray[i][0] = "com.android.settings" // myArray[i][1] = "com.android.settings.Settings" ComponentName compName=new ComponentName(myArray[i][0], myArray[i] [1] );
with ComponentName compName=new ComponentName("com.android.settings","com.android.settings.Settings");
And without any modification in my manifest, it works!
