    This is Vishnu form Ellenki College. You wanted me to leave a mail to guide me work on EXIT FORM THE APP area in Android Application Development.

    Can you please help me Sir..

  2. Hi Vishu,

    Android applications Contains Activities (Screens). If you can close all Activities which are running, nothing exiting application.

    We can do this by clearing all activities using FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP flag.

    Call the Exit activity with FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP flag and finish it onCreate.

    Intent intent = new Intent(this, ExitActivity.class);
