    Hi fellas!

    in this Thread i wanted to talk about Something that happens very unperiodically. Something that at times is very annoying, but because it doesn't happen too often i don't rage because of it.

    So, for example when i'm typing a message in WhatsApp, randomly the screen jumps to my Homescreen and because i'm in my full flow i tap on one of the apps which then open.
    As i mentioned, this doesn't happen more than maybe two times a day but it does happen. and i can tell you, i am definitly not unpurposly pressing the Homebutton.

    Is out there someone with the Same bug?

    thanks !

    basically that's a sign that the app has crashed - the app quits and you go back to the home screen.

    but that can't bei it, because when i again open WhatsApp , the Text ist still at that point where i was. it seems to be just like some ghost presses the home Button once and that's it

    primarely i would say. happened in some other apps too tho. for example browsing in chrome.

    i should maybe mention, that my phone isn't rooted or customized in any way. it's completely stock

    I suspect that you touch home button accidentally or there is any gesture enabled for home screen that causes it.

    If that's the case, then it's definitely your fingers hitting the home button without you realising

    Maybe it's some rogue app running in the background?

    it's odd isn't it! it's never frustrating but kinda strange and a bit annoying at times

    Same Problem here when using Threema to write messages. Sometimes the app chooser shows up with no reason or it throws me to the home screen.

    Somehow it looks like that gestures are somehow active or the gboard has some problems... or or or... it's annoying.

    could it be a Problem with the Google Keyboard ? what Keyboards are you guys using?
    i should try out SwiftKey for some days to make sure it's not gboard crashing everytime

    no it happens with other apps too . the problem seems to be that the space bar is too close to the home button . and the option for the home button to auto hide doesn't work with google keyboard or any keyboard
