About this app

Preferences Manager is an Open Source application that allows you to seamlessly edit application's preferences.

This application requires a rooted phone! Without root access, it can't do anything.

Android provides several options for developers to save application data. The most frequent solution is the Shared Preferences framework. It's a simple way to store private primitive data in key-value pairs. Unfortunately, this method is not very secure... It consists in a simple XML file stored in the private folder, specific to the app. But in the case of a rooted device, theses files can be read, edited and even deleted.

Preferences Manager allows you to edit these preferences in a simple and easy way. You can for instance increase your highscores, modify your progression, or just debug your application preferences.

Disclaimer : I take no responsibility for any fault or damage caused by any procedures within this application. Do only use it if you really know what you are doing. I don't assume any liability if you brick your device or any application. If an application does not work properly anymore, you can clear its data from the Settings app. You may not use the application for any illegal or unauthorized purpose!

I highly recommend this app for the simple reason that (for me anyway) it works well, and is a quick and easy way to customize apps. Confirmed working my rooted devices- Pixel 3a xl (AICP) Galaxy S7 SM-G930V (stock rom) Galaxy S7 SM-G930T (stock rom) Galaxy S8 SM-950U1 (stock rom) LG Optimus L90 D415 (IncipientOS) On the subject of to root or not - it is your responsibility to do research and make the decision that best suits your needs. Hint- XDA Developers is a great place to start.

A lot of people here don't understand what rooting is. The app works fine. If you don't have a rooted device this app will not work. This isn't the apps fault. This is simply due to the limitations nonrooted phones have.

This app is just too cool. Does a great job as it is supposed to do and thank you developers for that. If you have any plans on updating this app then please do so and make the UI more modern. 4 star for the functionality
