How to get a list of running services in Android?

How can in get a list of running services in android code and how can I send it via SMS using smsmanager.

Answer Source

Include the following permission in your AndroidManifest.xml file

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SEND_SMS" />

This method shows both tasks:

public void sendSMS {
    // This is the code to find the running services
    ActivityManager am = (ActivityManager)this.getSystemService(Activity.ACTIVITY_SERVICE);
    List<ActivityManager.RunningServiceInfo> rs = am.getRunningServices(50);
    String message = null;

    for (int i=0; i<rs.size(); i++) {
        ActivityManager.RunningServiceInfo rsi = rs.get(i);
        Log.i("Service", "Process " + rsi.process + " with component " + rsi.service.getClassName());
        message =message+rsi.process ;

    //This is the code to send sms.
    String phoneNumber = "0123456789";
    SmsManager smsManager = SmsManager.getDefault();
    smsManager.sendTextMessage(phoneNumber, null, message, null, null);

The method detail.

public void sendTextMessage(String destinationAddress, String scAddress, String text, PendingIntent sentIntent, PendingIntent deliveryIntent)
