Hi All,

I am trying to hide my Widget application from the task manager. Is there any way to do so? when ever i kill the widget from the Advanced task manager and create another instance of it, all the data on both the widgets gets deleted. How can I avoid this?

Regards,
Sarah

I don't really think there is a need to hide your application.

Save all data into a preference file before closing and populate them back on app restart. Make use of onDestroy() of Activity.
