I have a problem with some apps and their notifications. Something kills the apps instead of opening them. In detail:

What happens:

  • When Tapping on the notification, some apps completly close (no cover, no background process)
  • In 1.1.7 we got background processes. When the app-cover is closed, the app opens correctly.

What I have expected

  • I get to the app and to what the app notified me about (chat, updates, ...)

Tested Apps:

  • Affected:
  • Telegram
  • Threema
  • Conversations
  • Tapatalk
  • Clementine Remote
  • Quizduell (a.k.a. Quizkampen, QuizClash, ...)
  • WhatsApp

Not affected:

  • Quizduell TV-Show App
  • Aptoide


  • Sailfish OS version:,,,,, (EA),
  • Android support: 0.15.7, 0.17.2, 0.17.17

Another app I always have this problem with: Tapatalk

Maybe it even affects more of my apps but this is the only one something happens in and therefore notificates me.

Updated post.

The Clementine-Remote app might be interesting to look at, as it is on github: I have no time nor knowledge to further investigate this issue though.
