how would you recommend for me to design an android app where i want it to
1) send location update every 10 minutes
2) to show push notification
I want both actions be available even when the app is closed.
Here i might ask for your explanation what "closed" states an app can be in?
a) removed from recent tasks stack - close the whole process including its services ?
b) forces closed - close the whole process including its services ?
I was using
1) alarm manager that sends a pending intent to a broadcast receiver.
2) notification manager
I have tried to register all manager using ApplicationContext instead of Current-Activity context. Now both actions work even after user remove the app from the "recent tasks" stack.
but I'm not sure about the "closed" states so I might be missing something.
