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.
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!!!
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.
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 (:
Disables the 'SystemUpdateService' wakelock on Cyanogenmod caused by Google Play Services You need ROOT. Came across a recommendation for this app on Twitter. This app enables me disable the 'SystemUpdateService' wakelock on Cyanogenmod ROM's that was introduced in the most recent update to Google Play Services. In the app just go to System > Google Play Services and *tick* the tick box next to SystemUpdateService. Voila, wakelock gone. You need to do this on every boot, but it's a small price to pay. Know what you're doing before disabling other services though, you can break stuff.
