Maybe this needs to be upgraded so that works with new android versions this app used to work in my Moto E 2years back. Then I bought yureka plus (5.0, cyanogen) and now MI note 3. Force stop chain does not work on either of them. really upset about this.
Finally one that actually works It's the shoes used to actually go into settings and stop the apps completely. Unlike most other task killers this app actually stops the apps from restarting after being killed. Facebook can finally RIP!
Simple. Useful Two bugs. sometimes1) showing already stopped app 2) Not showing marked app. Need to go app manager n force stop. It could be better if it jumps automatically to next app when we force stop a app. Now we have to press back every time. GREENIFY APP HAS AUTO FORCESTOP. WHY CAN'T YOU
Nice Very nice, doesn't need any permissions. The only thing missing is as others have noted is a one button 'kill' switch. Compatible with varying versions of Android on my 3 phone/devices.
Finally a useful one! Does what it says. This small (100kB) app without unnecessary permissions scans a list of user specified apps and offers the default 'force stop' button if available. Nothing else. Perfect! If you don't want to mess with Android's memory management but stop some CPU-hogging apps more easily this is for you. Update: Sadly it's too unreliable for daily use; it doesn't detect running apps every time and is nearly useless to me as it is now. Maybe I'll try a future update.
EXACTLY what I was looking for! This. THIS. Never mind the flimsy and flashy ATKs and all that bull crap. It takes you through all the programs that have a "force stop" button and you force stop them. You personalize the list of programs it shows you. It makes it easier to do what all of us end up doing (force close everything). An easy way to do that, without hopping back and forth between menus as you select, open, close, exit, exit, scroll, select again... Just "yep run that" or "nope close this." All you need!
