I need to run my app in background

Posted by: admin November 1, 2017 Leave a comment


Whenever user open any app i need know if application is running on the UI thread. I also need to show a toast of the Package Name of that application.

I have user Activity Manager but it not working as it should. It always shows displayed Launcher.

 ActivityManager manager = (ActivityManager) this.getSystemService(Context.ACTIVITY_SERVICE);
 List<ActivityManager.RunningTaskInfo> runningTaskInfo = manager.getRunningTasks(1);
 ComponentName componentInfo = runningTaskInfo.get(0).topActivity;
 pack = componentInfo.getPackageName();

Can anyone tell me how I can use usage stats to achieve this?


As far as displaying the name of your package you can use PackageManager and getLaunchIntentForPackage()
