    Details

      Description

      Description

      Would like to be able to handle this more gracefully, ideally without the dialog.

      Original Description

      From http://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/TIMOB-1559
      When a user installs an application downloaded from the Market or via a website and opens it from the installation success Activity. Pressing Home, then trying to bring the Application back via the launcher in the drawer/home scree or from the recent task menu will cause a new instance of the root activity to appear on the task stack.

          also, this is particularly hazardous when the user first installs the app. If they try to launch from the notification bar, a common thing to do. The first thing they see is that the application needs to be restarted.

          A similar thing happens when launching an app from the lock screen.
          You need to set the lock screen to slide mode, and put your app as one of the shortcuts.
          Now kill the app if it's running, lock the phone and slide to your app. Then lock again and slide again - a second instance will run. Now if you lock again and slide to your app, it will bring the second instance into focus.
