Hello. Im using AUTOSTART app on a media tv box. MXQ PRO. This app starts the app i want AFTER i start this app. It does NOT start the app i want automatically. I want to skip the home page menu. Have i missed something?
it should start the app automatically, you are right. Can you try the following:
a. Try it with a different app (to see if the autostart works)
b Try it with a different intent like: ON MEDIA SCANNER FINISHED
Let me know how it goes. Thanks!
Hello… I’m using Autostart for a clipboard syncing app (Unclip). I want it to stay on in the background. I’m using options Autostart and Stay. The default polling is set to 8 seconds. Only problem is that every time Autostart polls it starts the app even if it is already running in the background and leaves it open where I have to manually close it. Am I missing something? Is there a way to have Autostart only start the app if it is not not running in the background already and if it does restart the app, close it to the background?
Thanks for feedback! Let my clarify what you can and can’t do, so it will be of use to you:
1. You can’t launch an app directly to the background.
2. You can protect an app from being killed by the Android OS.
3. You can only sense if an App is not running and relauch it in the foreground.
4. Autostart is only to start an App given an intent, e.g. when you connect to a wifi. For this you don’t need the AndSY service.
For 3. I don’t think this works with Services. I have to look into this (unfortunately not the coming 3 weeks). If not, I will note this for a future feature. 🙂
Thanks for the response… So, how do I protect the app from being killed? That is what I am looking to do.
Omg sorry Jmorales, it is typo. It should be can’t. Correcting it.
