Application Management

Dependencies

  • Tizen 4.0 and Higher

The application management features cover the various application models available for Tizen .NET applications. They describe the application life-cycle and resources, and the communication methods available for the application.

You can use the following application management features in your .NET applications:

  • Applications

    Tizen provides various application models to allow you to create applications targeted for specific tasks. You can create UI applications to run on the foreground, and specific applications to function as the watch face for the device clock, or as a widget available on the home screen.

  • Application Icons

    You can show the application icon as a shortcut on the home screen to allow the user to easily access it. In the device application list, you can show a badge with the application icon to provide additional information about the application state or notifications to the user.

  • Application Controls

    The application controls allow you to share an application's functionality. Using another application's features through application controls reduces the time and effort needed to develop your own application. You can also allow other applications to share your functionality by exporting your application control functionalities.

  • Application Data Exchange

    The application can communicate with other applications in various ways. You can exchange data between applications through message ports and data controls.

  • Application Manager

    You can retrieve information about the applications installed on the device. You can also get information about the currently-running application.

  • Package Manager

    You can retrieve information about the packages installed on the device. You can also monitor for changes in the device packages.
