 I think onPause is called.  It will be hard to only close your
activity in response to Home key presses, but I think you can get it
to call finish in all cases where the Home button is pressed.

 I am not sure about your exact requirement but if u want to launch the
parent activity each time app is launched from home add
android:clearTaskOnLaunch="true"  in your manifest to your parent
activity.This should clear the stack on launch.

 Um, isn't an activity pause any time it's display is no longer
displayed?  Home is a special activity, but it's still an activity?
When does onPause get called then?

1. Where would you store a secret?

Hello all,

I have a little doubt, I have been reviewing the documentation and I
have found there are several ways to store information in the device,
but I would like to use one that is secure and is only accessed by my
application. That's why I guess that I only have two options, which
are files or the SQLite database (http://developer.android.com/guide/

Could you tell me which would be the best choice?

Thanks a lot
