AndroidApps/ApplicationsMobile Development

This example demonstrates how do I start an android application at boot time.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   android:padding="4dp"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <TextView
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:text="Hello World"
      android:textSize="24sp"
      android:layout_centerInParent="true"
      android:textStyle="bold"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 – Create a new Java class (StartAppOnBoot.java) and add the following code −

import android.content.BroadcastReceiver;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.Intent;
public class StartAppOnBoot extends BroadcastReceiver {
   @Override
   public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
      if (Intent.ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED.equals(intent.getAction())) {
         Intent i = new Intent(context, MainActivity.class);
         i.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
         context.startActivity(i);
      }
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
   }
}

Step 5 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="app.com.sample">
   <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" />
   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
      <receiver android:name=".StartAppOnBoot" >
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED" />
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.QUICKBOOT_POWERON" />
         </intent-filter>
      </receiver>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run Play Icon icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –
