Auto-Starter

Auto-Starter


Auto-Starter is a simple application that allows you to select any app you wish to start on boot-up, and optionally have that app function as the launcher and be returned to when pressing the HOME key.

Originally designed to enable using XBMC as a home launcher, because it has its own support for an app drawer but doesn't choose to make use of the HOME intent, but can be used for any app you'd like.

Please note that not all applications will be able to function properly as a launcher, for instance many would have no way for you to change to other applications. In this case, I recommend only enabling the start on boot option.

A fallback dialog will always be presented at a set frequency, in case you manage to get stuck with an application you don't want and cannot get into settings to disable. Default frequency is every 20 launches, configurable from 5 to 200. This only applies to the home key override option, start on boot is unaffected.

Tinted system bars only work on Android 4.4+ (Kitkat).

Includes PollFish survey delivery (please support my development by answering surveys, they will be disabled for 36 hours after successful completion of one and only take a few seconds of your time).

Permissions:
android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE - Required by PollFish library to minimise mobile data usage
android.permission.INTERNET - Required for the ACRA bug reporting system.
android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED - To start activity on bootup.
