This needs more documentation about how it works. Does it just run a service that auto-kills other services, or is it disabling them at an OS level? It would also be nice to have a few different profiles and a quick means of switching between them, such as when I want to run a single app and disable every other app's services while it is running. E.g. when trying to play a video that requires software decoding, I'd like to be able to devote the entire device to playing that video and shut everything else off.
Extremely useful for power users There were battery hungry ad services running for a few apps I had which caused me to lose 20% overnight, every night. After disabling them I lose 0% overnight. That's quite a significant change. Really appreciate the work. Would definitely recommend to power users who have the issue I had.
Please help!! I want this app to check for a process/ services (hangouts) and keep it running,not kill it. I cannot find any apps for that. So I want the app to check every few seconds and make sure hangouts is running. Or create a way to keep handouts always running. I am rooted, but don't want to go into the coding, I want an app to change the codes so that the service and process are running. Hangouts seems to auto shut off and I miss important calls. Please help me!!!
Real World Results I own a OnePlus One and on an average day I would get 5 hours of screen on time (facebook, light gaming, YouTube, web browsing). Recently, I have been hit by the notorious Google Play services bug. It kept my device awake at all times and decreased my screen on time to 3 hours. Save yourself the research, and get this app if that bug plagues your phone. After I disabled Google Play Services, I have been getting 6 hours screen on time consistently! 6 hours! Very pleased with the results.
Hope it delivers Just read about this, i had a similar app that disabled apps handlers (working almost the same way) but i can't remember the name hopefully it won't matter after this. EDIT: Truly one of the best apps I have installed, keep it like it is (:
People, don't be stupid, you must be rooted for this app to work. I'm reading all these reviews and so many are people that shouldn't have smartphones are leaving one stars. You must be rooted in order to disable factory applications. Try reading and having a basic understanding of technology before writing something that makes you look dumb. The app is simple and works perfectly, exactly what they claim in the description.
