move_to_background

Flutter plugin for sending mobile applications to background. Supports iOS and Android.

Getting Started

Install it (pubspec.yaml)

move_to_background: ^0.2.0

Import it

import 'package:move_to_background/move_to_background.dart';

Use it

MoveToBackground.moveTaskToBack();

Useful Scenario

Use with WillPopScope to send your application to the background when the user attempts to exit the app.

WillPopScope(
  child: MaterialApp(...),
  onWillPop: () async {
    MoveToBackground.moveTaskToBack();
    return false;
  },
);

Note about using it for iOS

Quitting your application or sending it to the background programmatically is a violation of the iOS Human Interface Guidelines, which usually doesn't bode well for getting through the review process. Keep that in mind.
