    This bug surfaced in 4.4 and is still present in 4.4.2: When I minimize an app by pressing the 'recent apps' button, it sometimes (but not always) will not show up in the list. I have to press 'home' and 'recent apps' again to make it appear. Sometimes I have to do this twice, which is extremely annoying. This happens seemingly randomly, making it impossible to reproduce the bug. So far I have not found a single report on this issue. I'm seriously out of ideas what could be done about it, a factory reset did not alleviate the problem.

    It's just a minor bug. It happens to me too.

    I have the same issue, thought this would be resolved with recent patch but it isn't... Is not so critical bug but an irritating one...

    Consider posting this here:


    Currently it is being dismissed as a manufacturer issue

    The problem is almost gone since I use the Google Now Launcher. Not completely fixed, but much better.

    I'm also having the same problem but mine isn't random it hasn't saved a recent app for the last 5 months, and it's very frustrating not being able to find any solution. No matter what suggestions I have followed, even resetting my phone didn't help.

    This forum is for the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet - you're more likely to get help in the specific forum for your device.

    If you do need help you'll want to provide:
    - device manufacturer/model
    - OS version and firmware build
    - problem description
    - steps you've taken (ex. rebooted, booted into Safe Mode, Factory Reset)
