Hello All,
These days i am working on android project in which need to grab all keystrokes using default keyboard.
Main concern is my application runs in background as service and from my service i want to detect keystrokes in android.

Is there any way to detect keystrokes from background in android.

Any suggestion will appreciated.

In windows dev it is called "system hooks",
I hope you find a solution but i think it is real difficult that it will allow you to do it cause that you try i maybe a virus.
You coul get card numbers, passwords,....
I think system will forbide it.
