With KeepRunning you could monitor apps and restart them. You need this if
- Android kills an app to free RAM
- An app crashes
This app has no background service and does not need RAM if it is not checking apps. It restarts only apps which was already running since last system startup, by the user or Android system. System apps are marked with an exclamation mark.

Available options:
  • Minimize all apps after an app was restarted
  • Duration of the monitoring intervall

Donation:
  • No self-promotion in the app.
  • More than 3 apps could be selected
  • Bring back last visible app after starting an app
  • Start apps, even not ever running since system startup
  • You support this app and further development!

Play Store: http://tinyurl.com/m94esbw
Changelog : In-app or http://tinyurl.com/kyzfjmp (Google Tranlator bar on the top)
Sideload: http://tinyurl.com/nhde3ux

My personal intension to create this app:
I'm using the messenger Trillian which has random FCs. Now Cerulean Studios has"pimped" the UI in a way I don't like. So I have to use the old version with known bugs.
To not miss messages anymore, i restart Trillian after crashes with this app
Now i'm using it also for daily crashes of WhatsApp

Translation:
You could find here a interface to translate the english strings: http://tinyurl.com/okycacj

Way to go!

Is this an Xposed module or standalone? (Other great apps work with Xposed.)

Wow, sounds amazing, I could use this for my CarPC.

Would it be possible to add an per-app option to only recover the app when the screen is on ?

Thanks !

Thank you! It's just curious that no one other created such an app before and i had to do it by myself

Standalone, no root. Should work down to API3 (Android 1.5)...

Per-app? A global option "restart apps only of screen is on" would be much easier

So if the time interval is set to 20 minutes, the app check every 20minutes if the selected apps are still running and if they dont, keep running start them again?
Do i get this right?

Yes.

I think "20" is a good value
* you do not miss messages etc to long
* not many checks of the apps, no impact to battery (20 min -> 72 cheks/day)
But you could set whatever you need
