Possible function for an app?

    I'm looking to design an app that will run in the background that will monitor another app so it can pull a name from and absolutely no other information.

    What it will be monitoring from the other app is a couple of things.

    1) It will listen for a sound from the app it is monitoring.
    2) Once the user has clicked an "Accept" button, the app will display a name. That name is what I need to be "copied" and pasted in my app for display.

    Unfortunately that is as much information as I can divulge without having an NDA signed. I hope it's enough to get and understanding of what I'm trying to do, or at least to know if that part of it is possible.

    Please ask any other questions if you may have and I'll do my best to answer it without going into the realm of requiring an NDA.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    Never try this , but this https://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/usage/UsageStatsManager.html
    and this https://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/usage/UsageStats seems to be what you need.

    I'm sorry, I don't need the code itself. I'm just wondering if something like this would be allowed to do in an app to be approved by the Google play store. I know there are rules and guidelines about things you can and can't include on an app. I don't want to create an app with certain functions only to have it rejected at time of review.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding or miscommunication on my part.
