Hi, I've searched for a way to do this and all the threads that I've seen so far don't seem to have a conclusive method. I usually listen to multiple applications playing audio(not at the same time) and when they go to the background it is only a matter of time before android closes them. I have checked and it isn't because of the memory running low(even then i want them to be running) I want them to persist regardless of focus. They lack a notification bar icon which I've read helps with that. I am not running any task killer.
