 Hi Guys,

I am looking for a way in which I can detect any tap on the screen (not just
in my app), I don't mind not having the information of what the tap was
(control/letter), just the fact that a tap was made will suffice for me for
Is there any possible way to achieve this?

Capturing tap on screen

by Ray Thomson » Wed, 04 Aug 2010 02:04:26 GMT

 Although this is a step towards the solution, precisely what I am looking
for is to run my app in the backend as a service and get to know the taps on
the screen (on any app). I am not interested in knowing what the tap was and
what it resulted in, all that I want to be intimted is that a tap was made.

Is there a way to achieve this?

And thanks Sarwar for trying to help me out :)

2. Behaviour of launchMode=鈥?singleTask鈥?not as described?

I agree that the documentation is confusing and possibly wrong.

For the second behavior, that of discarding the intent and bringing
the task with the specified activity to the foreground, you should use
"singleTop" instead (despite what the documentation says).
