Since Android allows background running applications (in marked difference to Apple and the iPhone) then echoecho is always running in the background monitoring incoming messages.

Remember - echoecho is not a realtime tracking and monitoring solution.

If you want to actually send an echo to one of your friends - you'll have to launch echoecho.

But if a friend sends you a message - then a popup echoflash notification message will appear. Actually - because of the rich functionality possible from within the echoflash message - we often don’t even open the inbox when we use echoecho on Android.
