Hi folks,

we are rolling out to BETA an improved control for editing graphs and selecting times more precisely. It combines selection and zoom and allows better control of what you are selecting. Please let us know your thoughts..

Hi folks, I guess most of you know that there are vendors which actively kill background processes which is a big issue for alarm clock or health tracking apps and thus of course for Sleep as Android and other our projects.

With Nokia implementing the so far most brutal battery saving ever which kills everything after 20 minutes white-listed or not.. this was really the last drop for us. We started an open source project Don't Kill My App:
https://dontkillmyapp.com/

This is a source for guides and workarounds for users and devs to make their apps work, and also a ranking of how badly different vendors threat apps on background.

Other devs like Joao from Tasker are are also actively contributing to this site. And there is a big discussion here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/ac6dwe/dont_kill_my_app_stop_crippling_background_apps/

I would kindly ask you - your most hard core users - if you could help us promote this project, contribute if you can make our guides better on your phone, and please post about the project on social media.

Big thanks for your support!

Vendors like Nokia, OnePlus, Xiaomi or Huawei turn Smart phones into Dumb phones again. Their drastic battery optimizations render apps using background processing use-less.

If you are not actively using your phone at the moment it can still do many useful tasks for you. But not with Nokia and similar vendors.

Have a look here: https://dontkillmyapp.com/

We are putting together a website to share guides how to make Smart phones again from your Nokia (and others) dumb phones and we assign each vendor a rank and how badly they break the Android environment.. Nokia is the leader at the moment..

See who is next here:

NOKIA the worst Android vendor ever (at least regarding non-standard background processes limitation). Yes you hear it.. NOKIA!

Every background process what so ever gets killed after 30 minutes on this "Android ONE" devices. They don't care if those are foreground services and user want to run them.

There is no workaround, the only way to keep a background process running is screen on all time. Excluding from battery optimizations, disabling doze mode, disabling adaptive battery.. no way! I have never seen such a drastic battery optimization on any other asshole manufacturer including OnePlus, Huawei or Xioami..

Not just Sleep tracking and Sleep as Android apps are affected, but any tracking app including Strava, Runtastic any fitness apps or other trackers or even Spotify.
