run code when user exits application?

Is there a method I can override which runs when the user exits the Android runtime? (ie: by swiping the application off the screen)


I need to save the user's work before the application is closed.


I have tried finalize(), onTerminate(), and onDetatchedFromWindow(), but nothing seems to work.


Thank you!

Have you tried onDestroy( ) or onStop( ) ?

Swiping the application off the screen?
Have a look at the official Android developer reference.


In your case you should try onStop or onDestroy.
