If you want the user pressing the back button to close your app...
well, first, this is strongly discouraged, because it is inconsistent
with how other applications work.  One standard convention we use,
though, is to have a menu option to return to the first activity of
the app.  This can be done by calling startActivity() for your root
task, with the FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP set in the Intent -- see
 http://code.google.com/android/reference/android/content/Intent.html #FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP

If you want to supply an option to actually finish all activities
(which is not a standard navigation provided by Android applications,
and not really useful given the home and back keys and the various
options discussed so far, so NOT encouraged), you could do this a
couple ways:

(1) Use FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP to return to the root activity, and in
the Intent given it some extra data telling it, upon receiving the
Intent, to call finish() on itself.

(2) Use android:clearTaskOnLaunch="true" to ensure your application
always starts out in its root state, and call
Activity.moveTaskToBack(true) to send your entire application behind
all others.

1. Fetch contact details in a multiple-selection Listview

Hi Guys,
            I've looked around much on the forums but haven't been
able to find the solution to this problem. I have to fetch the
contacts from the phone in to a multiple-selection listview. It should
look something like this
  ----Contact Name----              [Checkbox]
     --Contact Email--

I've found this link http://goo.gl/e0P8I where Mark has used the in-
built "simple_list_item_2" layout to show the contacts the way i want
albeit without the multiple-selection and the checkbox. Has anyone
found a solution to this? Thanks in advance!


2. Problem reading shared preferences in Gingerbread

Hello everyone,

I am facing a problem when i am reading the shared preferences
(defaults.xml) in Gingerbread. Following is the code snippet, what i
am using.

SharedPreferences prefs =

mystring = prefs.getString("tag_name",default_value);

When this is executed, always i am getting the default value.

The same piece of code is working in Froyo.

Has any one is having any idea, what is the difference between
Gingerbread and Froyo in this case?

Thanks in advance,
