Android Question

Caused by: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError (starting new Activity)

My application contains more than 5 activities with backgrounds services. When I run the app and I click on a button to create the second Activity, the app crashes.

Thanks for any help.

my xml layout :
enter image description here

Here is my onCreate:

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

Button button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);

button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, Main2Activity.class);
startActivity(intent);
finish();
}
});
}

// even more

Answer

Your background image's file size is too large. I don't know what your structure looks like but gogo1 should probably have several different resolutions based on screen sizes. Not only that but it should be mobile optimized so that it can be loaded efficiently (and avoid out of memory exceptions).

If you must load the image and cannot compress the file size then your only option would be to set the background programmatically after compressing the drawable to a size that won't cause an out of memory exception.

My recommendation is fix gogo1 so the image is optimized for different screen sizes and also make sure it's file size is no more than ~100kb (and even that is overkill).
