    Can anyone help me with some advice. I want to create an App that is loaded and then left running while other apps are loaded. I then want it to monitor what is output to the smartphone screen and when it recognises a particular pattern or logo being displayed to do something?

    Is this possible?

    Anyone know how to do - hopefully with javascript?

    Thanks LV426 - yes I suppose it could, it's the monitoring of what is going to the screen is the part I'm unsure of. Is it possible to 'screen grab' from within or would I need to monitor the graphic ram to see what's going in there?

    Interesting thanks. Looks like it can only be done on Rooted devices....

    ...Unless anyone knows otherwise?
