    When turning on the phone, is it possible to display the app that was on the screen when it timed out instead of reverting back to the Home screen?

    i don't think this is possible because when you restart you're phone it is clearing your history and in way starts fresh. their could be an app in the market that allows this but i am not aware of it.

    What do you mean by "turning on phone"? If you just mean turning the screen on after it times out and blanks, that's what my Evo does. First the unlock screen, then when I swipe down it goes to whatever app was last open.

    For example, I am in my podcast app and the screen times out and turns off (set for 10 mins). When I turn on the screen (press the top button) it brings up the Android lock screen and I slide it down. The next screen is back to the home screen not the podcast app.

    You are saying when you swipe down to unlock the screen it automatically displays the app you were using before the screen turned off?

    I found an app called "Screen On" that could work in a round about way. It keeps the screen on if a certain app is running. When the app stops, then the device reverts back to its normal screen time out settings.

    This will burn through the battery faster than I would like but when I am listening to podcasts, I am usually next to a micro-usb cable.

    Hey, sorry I didn't reply sooner. Somehow I missed the continuation of this thread. Anyway, yes, I'm saying exactly that. I've checked it numerous times with mutiple apps, and it seems to consistently work this way.
