Kyocera DuraXT -- Shut down app automatically overnight

Post by daleblizz » Tue Apr 26, 2016 2:50 pm

Hello,
I'm completely new to AccuTracking, but have been impressed so far.
I downloaded your app on to a Kyocera DuraXT -- followed directions and everything went smooth and easy. It worked great when I took it out for some test drives.
I sent the app to background and that also worked fine.
But when I got up this morning, the app had apparently shut itself down. I was able to start it back up and it's working again. It might be I just don't what I'm doing yet, but is there any way to keep this app running? My daughter is going to take a road trip soon, I chose the DuraXT because it has a long battery life and I already have a phone number and data service on it -- so adding on AccuTracking seems like the perfect solution. (She knows it's on there and could restart, but that's not a solution if she really does get in an emergency situation.)
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Dale

The phone kills the background apps as necessary (to save battery, to sleep...). There doesn't seem to be a way to get around this. Older Kyocera firmware doesn't do this but newer ones might.

Thanks for the fast response -- that makes sense. I'll see if I can find a way around it.

I think by sheer, dumb luck I was able to find the right combination of things to keep the app running. So everything is good now. Thanks for giving us a free week to play with AccuTracking and figure it out. I went ahead and subscribed today.
