    I am wondering if there is something similar to the Cydia Background Manager application for iOS that can be used on Android devices. I am looking for something that will allow me to force an app that goes to the background to stay in a foreground state like you can do with the Background Manager application.

    This is the app I am referring to just in case...

    Background Manager Cydia

    Thank you.

    Two apps that might help are:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...TitaniumBackup Titanium backup(requires root)

    and

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sfeng.greenify Greenify (non-root mode in beta)

    You can "hibernate" apps so they stay asleep. They won't run in the background.

    Thank you for that information. I have installed Greenify, but unfortunately that app does the exact opposite. When I switch between apps one goes into background mode while the other one then becomes the active app in foreground mode. What I would like to do is force the app going into the background to stay in foreground mode like this Background Manager app allows.

    I currently dont have my Motorola Xoom rooted as from what I understand you have to alter the bootloader which will in turn basically wipe the device.

    Why would I want to disable an app? I'm not sure that is going to give me the result I am looking for. If I am missing something please let me know.

    Try "autorun manager" from the play store.

    This app looks to just control what apps are allowed/not allowed to start on startup.

    I greatly appreciate the help. I am still looking around myself, but I am not having any luck. The next step for me will most likely be to go ahead and root the device and see what the Xposed modules may have to offer.
