    My app is a launcher.
    It gets killed frequently by OS when it running in background. It has to restart and reload data, which taks a long time.

    How to make it get less chances of being killed ?

    As far as what you have control over as the application developer all you can really do is try to have the app take up a smaller memory footprint.

    Note that phones with more RAM won't run low on memory and won't need to kill your app in order to free up space for something else

    If you get frequent complaints, you may want to limit your launchers compatibility to higher end devices with more RAM
