HTC Incredible :: (Skype, Amazon, Slacker) Keeps Running And Won't Shut Off / Stop It?

Nov 20, 2010

I just installed the 2.2 update on my Incredible. Don't know if it's me but it seems a tad bit slower than the last OS. I'm also noticing on my Advance Task Killer that I have Skype, Amazon MP3, Slacker, Kik, and other applications open most of the time without even touching the apps. Also pressing KILL all applications does not do the job! I gotta hold the application and press force stop myself.

Also earlier today I noticed I got incoming and missed calls from people in my phonebook, but when checking my call logs, it doesnt show their name it just the number and thats it.

So if anyone else is experiencing this please or has a solution to this please reply back.

Android : Amazon MP3 Market / How Can I Stop It From Running On Its Own?

Jul 1, 2010

I am having a problem with this app. I may use it in the future, so I don't want to delete it. But it keeps randomly popping up. When I go into my running applications, 8 out of 10 times it is running. I shut it down, and it keeps popping back up. How can I stop it from running on its own? I only want it to run if I manually click on it. Went into application settings and can find nothing to toggle it off with. This happens on a bunch of applications, but Amazon MP3 is the most frequent.

HTC Incredible :: Can't Remove Skype , Amazon Mp3 - What To Do?

Sep 26, 2010

I have removed VZ Nav, City ID and other bloatware, but the only two that remain a problem are the two I hate most....

Skype & Amazon Mp3 both give me the notification when trying to uninstall through Titanium: "failed to locate apk file".

What does that mean and how do I get around it to get rid of this crapware? Google searching has been non-productive with this issue so far.

(I'm on an Incredible 2.2 rooted with Unrevoked3)

HTC Incredible :: How To Limit / Shut Off Whats Running?

Jun 10, 2010

This should go in the battery section perhaps but I'm in a hurry and wanna easily find it when I get home from work. My battery life is awful. I send txt messages and thats about it and my battery drains in a hurry. On days that I 'play' with the phone and use the hell out of it, it drains in fast forward. I read a couple pages of the battery life post and tips and tricks section and probably need to shut down or limit programs running on my phone. I have the power control widget on screen and most of the time have everything off. If surfing the web or whatever I turn wi-fi on, then off after use. If I do nothing with the phone for awhile then switch to task manager it will pull up a list of a dozen or so things running..thought this thing was supposed to kill these apps. Do I just go into each app or widget and find some options to limit everything? What about juice defender (is that right?)? Does it help? Seems like my phone is on the charger more often than not. I'm going to pick up a new battery but would like to learn how max battery life before I do.

HTC Incredible :: Skype Running In Background

May 6, 2010

I check my running services every once and awhile and often, Google Talk and Skype are running.

1. I have never run google talk
2. I installed Skype so I would have it when I need it but have restarted several times since then and forced it closed.

Why do these programs keep popping up and running? Are they using up memory/battery? Are they showing people that I am available for chatting/talking?

HTC Incredible :: How Do I Stop Backup Assistant From Always Running?

Jul 1, 2010

Once upon a time I accidently thought backup assistant would be useful and set it up. Now ever since setting it up it runs in the background like an annoying pest. I have cleared the cache as online recommendations have mentioned, but Backup Assistant STILL runs in the background and restarts if forced to quit.I'm now rooted and have the Clockwork recovery mod on my phone....what can I do now to permenantly banish "Backup Assistant" from running? I've heard of people deleting it but then having problems with syncing FCing. So I'm just looking to slam the door in its face.

HTC Droid Eris :: Amazon Mp3 Constantly Running

Mar 25, 2010

I'm running the new 2.1 leak and I've been noticing the Amazon Mp3 app is always running. I've never launched it and I keep having to manually kill it through running services. I'm also noticing Shop Savvy is having the same relaunch issue, but I can always uninstall that one, unfortunately unless we get root we're stuck w/ the amazon mp3.

HTC Incredible :: Slacker Still Keeping Your Incredible Awake

Jun 2, 2010

Last night I noticed that there is an update to Slacker, so I downloaded it to my Incredible. Opened it to see if there were any visible differences, went to a station and played a song for 2 seconds, selected quit via the menu, and then "shutdown slacker" at the end. This morning I open up Spare Parts, check the battery history/partial wake usage, and Slacker is at the top, bar all the way to the right.

HTC Incredible :: Slacker Constantly Stops Playing

Jul 16, 2010

This doesn't always happen but when it does, Slacker stops playing after every 2 or so songs. I get a message box that reads "Warning! Unable to find active data or WiFi connection. Would you like to quit the application?" and gives me Yes or No options. Clicking No returns me to the Stations list where selecting any station returns me to the one previously playing and starts the next song when I hit Play.

Android :: Stop Service Only When There Are No Other Activities In App Running

Mar 13, 2010

Is there a way I can test if there are any other activities in my app still alive? I am looking to stop a service in an onDestroy method, but only want to do this if there are no other activities from my app still alive on the stack.

I have the call stop the service in the main activity's onDestroy() method. This works perfect EXCEPT that if a user launches my app, then launches a few activities in my app, then hits the home screen and RELAUNCHES my app, they will subvert my order and the main activity will now be above other activities of my app. From this state, if they hit the back button and 'back out' of my home screen they will trigger the onDestroy() method and kill the service even though there are other activities open on the stack. I want to avoid this by stopping the service ONLY if I am sure there are no other activities of mine open on the stack.
