I've been going back through the list archives and I'm still not exactly sure how you're supposed to deal with 'suspending' and 'resuming' an Android app. It seems that in most cases, and unlike in iOS, when you switch away from an Android app and then return to it it will be in the same state that you left it. That's a good thing, but I'd still like to receive some sort of message or notification when the user leaves and returns to the app as I potentially need to do some housekeeping depending on the interval between the leaving and the return. Is there a preferred way of doing this?
