 Hi, all,

I am a new Android apps developer, I suffer a problem that I don't
know how to solve. Can anyone give me some suggestion?
The problem is the apps will launch twice or more when I apply the
following steps:
1. launch the app A (1 time)
2. rotate the screen, (the app A will launch again, now the app A
launch twice)
3. press return button (my expected result is that the app A will keep
running, luckily, I can do that.)
4. launch the app A ( there will be one more app A running)

So, in this case, there are 3 app A launching at the same time.
But my expected result is just have one and only one app A launch.

Thank you!

 Hi, thank you for your help!
But I tried to add android:launchMode="singleTask" or
android:launchMode="singleInstance" in the <activity> before, but it
seems not work.
The app still running twice or more at the same time by rotate screen
or press return button, and launch the app.

 Hi, Dianne Hackborn,

Thank you!
In the main activity, I will start a service, so I am calling
startService() in onCreate().
Is that not necessary?

 I also face the same problem, what I did was in manifest, inside
activity, just included
android:launchMode="singleTop" and its working fine.

What "singleTop" will do is,

The "standard" and "singleTop" modes differ from each other in just
one respect: Every time there's new intent for a "standard" activity,
a new instance of the class is created to respond to that intent. Each
instance handles a single intent. Similarly, a new instance of a
"singleTop" activity may also be created to handle a new intent.
However, if the target task already has an existing instance of the
activity at the top of its stack, that instance will receive the new
intent (in an onNewIntent()  call); a new instance is not created.

 The purpose of this app is to run the service forever until shutdown
the phone, and after the user leaves the app and return later, the
service will not launch again, means only have one of this service
running.
Now, the problem is it can't only have one of this service running.
Do I need adding something in AndroidManifest.xml file, the class that
extends Activity class or the class that extends Service class?
