Background Service and Application information

I am trying to create an app that is similar to an app-lock, that would list all the installed applications on the phone and run a background service to keep a track of the apps running.

I wanted to know if there is a way to get the list of all the installed applications and to run background processes to keep a track of their launch?

I think that this kind of apps is not allowed in iOS. There is no Public API from Apple that gives this kind of information and an app like this wouldn’t be accepted into the AppStore.
If you can find an official way to get this info into an iOS Swift application, then we can check it and maybe add it to one of our next releases.


Thanks for the quick response.
I was not aware of this fact, as I have mainly developed android apps only.
Hence was trying out Kodika, as it provides an easy and simplified way to make iOS apps.
