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 :: (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.

HTC Incredible :: Memory Used By Unknown File Running In Background

Aug 11, 2010

I woke up this morning to a song playing from my phone that I made with xPiano about 2 weeks ago. I have no idea why this file was activated and when I looked at my task killer, most of my phone's memory had been used up but no programs were running in the background. I've never seen it get this low even when using 20 programs at a time. I've been using a mixture of apps that I've downloaded off of my computer and through the market. Is there any way that someone has access to my device and can look through all of my files/folders? Are there any known hacks/Trojans/viruses that do this?

HTC EVO 4G :: Froyo Has Qik Running In Background

Aug 3, 2010

I found that Qik has been modified as part of this update and was running in the background trying to sync vmail and other features. I saw it was active when viewing the Running Services list. There were 2 Qik apps running in the background that I had to FC then reopen the Qik program, sign in, go to Menu/Settings and redo some stuff in there.

Even when hitting the Exit button from Qik those 2 services would still run. The only way, I think, to NOT have them running is to completely sign out of your Qik account and leave it that way. If you want to use Qik then you'd have to sign in again each time. But once you do then those synchronizers run in the background even though you exit.

I noticed on both our EVO's that the battery usage changed quite a bit since yesterday's update which had me scouring through all the settings to see what was up. I discovered the Qik stuff as well as the Sprint Zone settings had be reset to all services/notifications 'on' so I had to switch them off as well.

Here is what I would like to do:

I have an HTC Magic and I have a couple of contacts who I frequently talk with on skype. Is there anyway to talk with them skype-to-skype on the Android phone?

The Skype Lite app does not allow calling.

I don't mind either calling using my local minutes OR using my data plan.

Are there any other applications that could assist me with this?

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?

HTC EVO 4G : Multiple Programs Running In Background

Jun 4, 2010

It seems I have multiple programs that will start on their own and run in the background. The main ones are mp3 store, voicemail, sprint nav, sprint tv and qik. I haven't even ran those programs yet, but they're still starting up.

I went so far as to download ATK and kill them...only to see them running again 5 minutes later. I tried to put all the settings the same as what I had on my hero, but these running in the background are driving me nuts for some reason.

General :: Running Sh Script On Background

Oct 17, 2011

I wrote some sh script to my device which has to run for a long period of time. I wanted to run the script on the background so i run the script with "&" but for some reason the script freeze whenever the device is getting into standby mode.I made some testing script (called which simply count seconds to see what happen

while (); do
sleep 1
echo -e "

It has been $i sec since the script started" done.I run the script from a terminal (./ &) and saw the counter start counting, i then put the device to standby mode (short press on the power button) and waited for 10 min. after 10 min i open the device and saw that the counter still counts but the time was 3 min (180 sec).

So i guess the script kept running for 3 min then hang for some reason and resume when the device got off standby mode.Is there a way to make my script keep on running ?

General :: Prevent App From Running In Background?

Jan 25, 2012

What exactly can keep an app running in the background, regardless of what efforts your take to disable it?

If I don't use an app much and don't want it running, I normally freeze the app. If it is an app I tend to use a bit more frequently, I take other measures such as an app manager that allows me to be extremely precise as to how and when it should run such as on startup, battery level, configuration change, application change, etc. I really don't have the time to do this for every application.

With that said, I'm wondering what other methods, other than freezing and the other mentioned above, I can take to prevent an app from running in the background?

I will give you a perfect example...

There are some third-party apps I have downloaded that I know I will use occasionally. One example is CamScanner. For the life of me, I can't get this app to stop running in the background without extensive efforts mentioned above. No matter what I do, it just pops up again in running applications.

How can I ensure the app will not run in background while not resorting to freezing the app, which will prevent me from quickly accessing it when needed?

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?
