    I have tried every possible approach to this problem, it all comes down to the fact android stopped allowing third-party applications to access it. However, all I need is to know if a certain application is running or not. Is there any workaround that I can do?

    Yes. Do you have Developer Options enabled? If so:
    Settings | System | Developer options | Running services

    Then you can toggle between "Show running services" and "Show cached processes."

    If you don't know how to enable Developer Options, this handy-dandy guide will show you. :)

    In a development manner, not as a user of the system

    Development thread moved to the dev area for better exposure.:)
