Detecting if System Apps are running

    hello Everyone!

    We are trying to automate our QA process. We make wallpaper apps for Android. Once an app is installed, is there a way to figure out if the application is running since these have apps don't have a main class which we can check by doing a ps on android shell. I think keyboard/language apps would face a similar issue

    For eg. If I install tetris and run it. Its main package will show up in shell ps. xyz.abc.Tetris. But the same is not true system apps in android.

    You could go into Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and select the "Running" tab on 2.2. 2.1 the only way I can think of in 2.1 is to d/l a task killer like Advanced Task Killer. Both methods will show you what programs are currently running.
