in Report a Bug
i'm using an ... older phone ...Moto Z3 made by Motorola running Android 9 and i've got Ingress version 2.89.1
i've noticed this weird issue where when i send Ingress to background because i have to have the screen open to something else for an extended period..[like having to send a text message, answer a phone call and stuff like that] instead of coming back to foreground when i use the Ingress icon it restarts the app from scratch like when i first started it ...
i think its because old phone cant keep it running in the background so it kills the ingress app...
My iPhone 12 Pro Max is also doing this more and more. I think Ingress is having a memory leak or something, it's re-starting way more often.
Ingress is a big app, and it's not a prioritized app, so it's the first on the chopping block when the system is choosing what to throw out to gain 10Mb of extra RAM.
I also have a Z3. I also see this. I expect that it's because all apps are getting bigger, there's less memory to go around, I have more stored media on the system (pictures, etc), and when I flip over, there's just not enough memory to hold it all, so it evicts the background process called "Ingress"
you mean that battery optimization feature ??? because it shouldn't be that...i set it to have the app not optimized...not sure what version of Android you're running but Android 9 lets you change that setting for certain apps... including Ingress
Unless you rooted your phone and thus can't play Ingress, its a System Management action to allow the phone to continue functioning by evicting the highest RAM usage non-prioritized app when more memory is requested by an application.
