I have a permanent notification:

"Tune In Radio Pro Is Running".

How do I get rid of this, without affecting the functionality of the app? (I want it to show a notification when I am listening to something).

Is this possible?

Did you look for the app in system>apps and disable notifications?

I have this same issue. I clear notifications but they come back. I deselect show notifications in system settings and get the same notification later. The only way to stop it is to turn it off in the app settings if there is one.

Ah. I have 2 apps that run in background that do NOT show these persistent notifications... They both happen to implement a user setting for notification priority (which I have set to lowest/no icon). Co-incidence? Maybe we need some app changes...

Apps were always supposed to show that notification when running in the foreground since they can have a huge impact on device performance and battery life.

A foreground service is a service that's considered to be something the user is actively aware of and thus not a candidate for the system to kill when low on memory. A foreground service must provide a notification for the status bar, which is placed under the "Ongoing" heading, which means that the notification cannot be dismissed unless the service is either stopped or removed from the foreground.

That's the problem I think. What we consider as background apps are now behaving like foreground apps. As said previously it's an app problem. Had one fixed already

Guys I think this is gonna be the least of the issues people will have. With the new security restrictions even CM is thinking root is just about dead.

Sorry didn't see that.

I posted this in that Google+ thread, but would be interested in what folk here think:

So what's the proper way to do this now (stop apps you want from being killed yet never show a notification)? Is it possible?

There are several utility/monitor type apps that the user would want never killed. But to have a persistent notification gets in the way of 'normal' notifications (aesthetically) and makes the status bar and notification shade look very busy. Would it not be better to allow the user to set that persistent notifications don't show for selected apps of their choosing?

You may be able to still raise the background threads priority with android.os.Process.setThreadPriority(), but I haven't tried it from a service yet. Even without it you should still be okay though unless the system needs to free up some memory.

You can also tell the system your service needs to be restarted asap with START_STICKY or START_REDELIVER_INTENT.
