HTC Desire : Holding Home Button Brings Last Used Apps

Nov 11, 2010

I have had my HTC Desire for about 2 months now and I have just accidentally learned that if you hold down the home button for about a second or 2, it brings up a neat little 'last used apps' screen. I am using LP so i don't know if it is part of Android or the launcher but I found this pretty neat.

HTC Magic :: Recently Used Apps Launcher Appears Only Shortly When Holding Home Button

Oct 6, 2010

When clicking and holding the home button the very useful modal dialogue appears showing the list of recently used programs/applications. Unfortunately, most of the time it appears and then disappears again. It is very annoying and makes this feature useless.

I am using LauncherPro on my Android 2.1 (CyanogenMod 5.0.8 DS), but with ADW launcher it showed the same behaviour.

Android :: Alternative To Holding Down Home Button?

Sep 12, 2010

I was wondering if there is alternative to holding down home button to switch between apps. I was wishing that there is some app that shows all active app and if we click on it, it gets opened. Is there anything like that? Holding down home button only shows recently opened apps. Also, I am not fans of holding down buttons.

HTC Eris :: Aloysius Rom Brings Missing Apps From Market

Apr 19, 2010

I have seen a lot of posts saying that people once they rooted they lost access to some of the apps they had with android 1.5.This is an HTC hero rom that was ported over to the eris that I am running right now. With this rom which is running 2.1 you will get access to the protected apps on the market (the apps that come up missing). Read the known bugs section though. Included is an app that circumvents the power down hang and I actully like using it more then shutting down the phone the convential way hope this helps. People running eris with 2.1 don't have access because it has not been officially released yet. As always do a Nandroid backup if you decide to use this ROM.http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=663893

HTC Desire :: Back Key Brings Up Search

Jun 7, 2010

Something fishy is going on with her phone. On the home screen when the back key is pressed it brings up the Quick Search. OK, that's no big deal. Not the end of the world.When you navigate through regular menus like Settings the back key works fine. But if, for example, you go to Contacts, Open a contact, tap the address to show it on a map, click on the map to see Street View, you would expect that the back key would back-track you through all of those steps right back to the home screen. But it doesn't. The Quick Search keeps popping up instead and it's quite a job to get back to the home screen.Reboot doesn't change that.Anyone else seen this or has any ideas? It can't be a dodgy button because the navigation works as expected in other circumstances.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Holding Down Menu Button Still Doesn't Do Anything

Mar 11, 2010

1. sometimes when you unlock the screen you get this weird static screen for like half a second

2. holding down the menu button still doesnt do anything

3. when you're charging your phone it doesnt show the percentage

5. sometimes you have to push the actual unlock button for the screen to turn on instead of any of the buttons (i do this to check the time)

Android :: Recent Apps Change In 2.2 / Brings Main Activity To Foreground

Jul 24, 2010

The recent apps display seems to function quite differently from earlier versions on 2.2. Try the following for instance: 1) Open an app 2) Click on something that takes you to another activity in the same app 3) Press the home button 4) Press and hold the home button to get the recent list of apps - select the app you chose in step 1 5) You'll be taken to whatever activity in that app is specified as the main/launcher Activity, rather than the Activity on top of the stack (as it was previously) It makes it appear to the user that the application has exited when the home screen button was pressed. I don't have my app set to clear history on launch or anything like that, and I can replicate it on the emulator and with any app on my device (Contacts, Gmail, Engadget etc) Anyone else notice this? Anyone know any reason for the changes? I must admit I quite dislike the new method.

Is there any way to make it so when i press and hold the power button and choose either silent or vibrant only that it will also mute media?

General :: Make Home Button Close All Running Apps?

Feb 15, 2014

Swiping to close each app all the time is inefficient for me. I realize other people might not want this but I want whatever app I was using to completely close when I tap the home button. There is one app that puts an X on your homescreen that closes everything when clicked. That is a little better but I want to go one step further and have the home button do the same thing. Is there anything out there for that?

HTC Desire :: Delay After Hitting Home Button

Nov 9, 2010

New to the forum and the reason I signed up is I can't seem to find anything online about the problem I'm having with my HTC Desire. I am running a custom Froyo ROM (DeFrost 5.1) with ClockworkMod 2.5.0.7. My issue is that sometimes when I'm in an application (as far as I can tell, any application..haven't been able to pick up on any patterns, other than I have to be in the app for more than about 15 seconds) and I hit the home button, there is about a 5+ second delay before the phone reacts. While I'm waiting, the current app is fully functional as if I hadn't done anything although after waiting it will do it's usual process to get back to the home screen (fluid animation and everything). Hitting the home button multiple times seems to make the process go faster, although there is still a delay (the sense of it happening faster could simply be that I'm doing something instead of just sitting there too and it's not a real decrease in the delay). I have Launcher Pro Plus installed with "Keep in memory" and "Use homescreen caches" options enabled to try and make the home screen react faster. Memory usage preset is set to "High" and Homescreen cache type is set to normal. The weird thing about this is before I installed the custom ROM, I was experiencing the same thing with Android 2.1 w/ Sense UI since I got the phone (got it end of August) and if I remember correctly happened both with and without Launcher Pro installed (didn't know about the memory settings in Launcher Pro at the time so they were at default then). Is anyone experiencing a similar issue and/or does anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this? I really like Android and truly want to love it, but things like this just keep getting in the way. If it's an OS issue then Google really needs to work on this as it really is nuts when you want to switch apps to wait 5+ seconds before even getting started.

Android : Handcent To HomeScreen - Apps Vanished When Press Home Button

May 13, 2010

I have the motorola droid. I got the handcent app because I really like all the customization options within it. However, lately I have been having this annoying problem. Sometimes when I have just sent a message, when I press the home button to return to the homescreen, it goes home but all my apps have vanished. I can go through my menu and replace them all to where they were, or I can reboot the phone and that usually corrects it. It is still annoying and is really putting me off the app. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you know if there is a specific cause or how I can correct it?

HTC Desire :: Any Other Non - Rooters Holding Back?

Jun 17, 2010

Are any other non-rooters holding back slightly when it comes to apps etc? I'm going to purchase a 16GB or 32GB miniSD card for my Desire, but I'll only be able to store music, pictures etc on it until the update when apps can be saved to the SD. As a result, I've been holding back with regards to totally pimping out my Desire with apps and bits and bobs. Anybody else done the same?

HTC Desire :: Holding Phone With Lowers Signal

Aug 11, 2010

I've been having problems with a Milestone, so i decided to give it away and buy a Desire. Overall, the phone is good. But i'm having a major issue that troubles me: Bought the phone yesterday and immediately updated to Froyo. I'm having problems with the antenna (which i believe is in the lower right corner). By just holding my phone with my hand (not touching the antenna) drops my signal significantly. For HDSPA, it goes down from 3 bars to 0 (but i can make calls) and for GSMA it goes from 4 to 3. As i found out through the menus, the drop for HDSPA is around -10dbm and more. I'd like to ask: is this normal; I know that you shouldn't touch the antenna, but on mine bars goes down all the way just by holding the phone.

HTC Desire :: Way To Map Other Apps To Buttons Such As Menu Button?

When I press and hold the quick search button on my desire, I was given the option to chose what app i want mapped to this key (I chose quick settings - very handy)....however when I press and hold the menu button anywhere I get a keyboard popping up which is frankly useless as when I need a keyboard there is always and easy way to bring it up. Is there any way to map other apps to other buttons such as the menu button or even the optical track button?

Android :: Using Any App And Press Home Button Home Screen Blacks Out - 10 Sec Delay Get All Icons Back

Mar 30, 2010

Whenever I am using any app and press the home button, the home screen blacks out for a few secs and it takes around 10 sec to get all the icons back and before I can start using my phone again. I am using a non rooted mytouch 3g.

This problem does not happen if I exit an app by pressing the back button. It becomes very annoying at times.

Android :: How To Control Activity Flow - Back Button Versus Home Button

Sep 2, 2010

I have 3 activities in my app: Activity1 -> Activity2 -> Activity3. Inside Activity3, if the user presses Back, I would like to return to Activity2. In Activity3's onPause event, I added a finish() statement. That's probably not even necessary, but I wanted to make sure this Activity gets cleaned up. This works fine.
However, while in Activity3, if the user presses Home or starts a new app (through notification bar or some other means), I want both Activity3 and Activity2 to finish. If the user returns to this app, he should resume with Activity1.

I have figured out how to do one or the other, but I can't figure out how to handle both cases, if it's even possible. Can I trap the "Back" button in Activity3 and send a message back to Activity2 telling it not to finish()? It seems like the Activities follow the same lifecycle flow (Pause, Stop) regardless of what you do to send them to the background. Just to answer the question of why I want this behavior, imagine that Activity1 is a login screen, Activity2 is a selection screen, and Activity3 is a content screen. If I press Back from the content page, I want to be able to make a new selection. If I exit via any other means (Home, notification bar), I want the user to be "logged out".
