I've tried searching around on various forums but can't find this answered anywhere.
Is there a mechanism to automatically run an app on boot then switch back to the 'desktop'?
Specifically I'm using the Squeezeplayer app which, when run, starts a service which listens in the background for connections from a Logitech Squeezebox server on the local LAN. But you can then leave the app and the service runs in the background. I'd be keen to start the app then jump back to the home screen on boot so that the listening service runs in the background.
