    I'm still on Z30STA100-2/10.3.1.938, noticed the same thing too. I have telegram (which I installed but did not register account at all) and Mega app constantly reappear in the background even after killing running apps.
    Just wondering, does this mean it runs in the background?

    The only thing I have found that effectively kill android apps is ghost commander. you can force close an app and it stays closed till you re open it. Android apps have a specific line/permission called run on start up. really wish i could turn it off but you can't ......yet

    Before people go on about Blend, don't forget it has nothing at all to do with the OS.

    The Blend app checks BlackBerry to see if your device is whitelisted. If so, it will work.

    All Passports have been whitelisted, along with a select few testers on other devices.

    Z30STA100-5/10.3.1.1016
    As this is accurate. It is the app on the device that does this. The OS will most likely contain an update to this app which could potentially remove this white listing safe guard.
    Eventually this needs to be done for public once 10.3.1 is released. But no saying it won't happen earlier.
    PIN watermarks are supposed to be removed once builds get to 10.x.x.1xxx but as you can see 10.3.1 changed that rule.
    Leaks are supposed to be less if not nonexistent under JC, as you can see the floods have been opened.
    Things change from the norm with every build and should be tested every build.
    I for one can not test this as my PIN IS white listed so Blend has been working since Passport/Blend launch.

    Ugh...

    Now I can't reinstall the Discover app because the Amazon app store says it's still installed... even a volume key reset didn't fix that.

    I would remove and reinstall the app store but I can't remove it. I had "upgraded" it using the latest version off their website during my initial round of troubleshooting of another issue right after I upgraded it. That allowed me to uninstall and reinstall it then but not anymore and I can't upgrade it again.

    I wonder how I can get my system to understand the app is gone.

    Try to fix one issue and create another. Always the way these things go... :-)

    Well Clean Master allowed me to "uninstall" the Amazon app store. The icon for the app remained however which was strange. When I clicked it, it went through the whole initialization process and once it was finished prompted me for my Amazon credentials. It finally loaded up and I was give the opportunity to install the Discover app.

    One problem solved, now back to the original one. The app launches fine but after a short while I see if back in Task Manager. I guess I need to poke around the app and see if it has any configuration that makes it try to run in the background.

    Anyone else notice Android apps constantly running in the background? Using the Task Manager app I always see Discover and Pandora running in the background, and trying to close them has no effect.

    I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling the Discover app to see if that makes any difference..

    Almost forgot to mention I upgraded nondestructively using the AT&T files (swapped core OS and radio files) and the old school Sachse method.

    You can choose if Android app is working when minimized.

    You need to go to app permission for that.

    • Lots of VPN fixes
    • You can add credit card details to the payment system via NFC
    • More polish to the UI overall
    • BBM fixes
    • Lots of translations
    • Still lots of enterprise (corp liable) and migration stuff
    great thanks, but have a question, you can add cc to the payment system for NFC, what payment system?
    Update, never mind figured it out thought there was a NFC payment system.......DOOOH!!! what are they waiting for.

    Android has headless apps too, and many Android apps, by design, use Google's cloud notification service. The app will come back to life whenever it gets a notification from the cloud or if there is a change in your network state.

    For compatibility sake, there is really nothing you can do about it.

    Yeah, but this isn't that scenario. The app isn't minimized, it's flat out closed.

    I also started with turning that setting to disabled for the Discover app with a reboot to see if that would fix the issue and sadly it didn't. :-(

    Did you wait 20 minutes or so after rebooting without touching the phone? Takes a long time before the Android Runtime initializes for the first time.

    I'm coming from a early 10.3.0.xxxx build on my z30 and all my android apps work fine:

    Side question. I thought in 10.3.1 we were supposed to be able to control all android app permissions, not just a few. For example the permission you mentioned is the only one I can toggle on my Discover app:

    As for stopping android apps from running in the background, disable them from 'running when minimized' in app permissions..

    *You can add credit card number and expiry date with an NFC tap through Settings > Payments Options. My findings:
    Mastercard: no effect
    American Express: "Invalid Card Type" toast
    Visa: works.

    *You can change the LED colour for individual contacts now

    Could someone explain how I use nfc payment. I got my mastercard accepted in the "Payment Options" in the settings. But I think this is only for BlackBerry World Purchases, not for NFC.

    Hey that's different. It first showed up on 10.3.1 leaks?

    Cause usually the NFC tap for credit cards has to be done within an app.... like the RBC, TD app. So BlackBerry is doing their own NFC payment system?

    Posted via CB10
    No. This allows you to tap a credit card to add it as a payment method for BlackBerry World.

    Doesn't let you use your BlackBerry to tap and pay. This just reads the card info from an NFC card and adds it to your BlackBerry ID payment info.

    Doesn't work with Amex or Discover. Both get invalid card type.

    Open up Device Monitor from quick settings, find the Amazon App Store listing and you'll see it.
