 I believe that it would do the developer community a lot of good if
there was an annual Android Design/App Awards Contest.  You need
Google to lead this for it to be relevant.  I am curious about what
others think (about the idea, not the comment).

1. Framework support for detecting starting and stopping of activities

There is nothing in the SDK for this.  In 1.5 there is now some lauch
information maintained by the system, which you can modify to have reported
if you'd like, though it is pretty rudimentary (for each day, the number of
times each .apk has been resumed, and the total duration it was resumed).
You will need to build your own system to do anything like this though.

2. Framework support for detecting starting and stopping of activities

To support usability studies on what applications are used, i want to
write a service that logs when an activity is started and also when it
has finished.  This is to understand how the users are using the

One straightforward option is to have the applications modify, to
write this out.  But this is tedious having to modify all applications
and will not work esp with third party or built in applications.

Is there any alternatives that makes this simpler and easier?

BTW: Looking at the android framework source ActivityManagerNative
seems to be invoking a Binder interface when an Activity is started
and finished.  Any information on what this service is?   Is this
something i can tap into?

Apologizes if i am looking at the wrong code, my first foray in to the
framework code.

Any information or thoughts is greatly appreciated.
