Great app. I can finally do scheduled reboots. I previously didn't want to manage running services EVERY morning. With this, I can disable services that I don't want to start on boot. :)

A relief for my Optimus 2x clogged by stock apps willing to start at boot.

On my rooted Captivate running froyo, it gives the "Please Wait" dialog box for a long long time. When I exit the app and restart it, the task does appear to be done.

10 Star This is a MUST HAVE app for anyone looking to make their phone RUN FASTER, SMOOTHER and SAVE BATTERY LIFE. Yes, I said save battery life. Foeget about "task killers" and battery savers this app prevents other from running in the background while still making it accesable. I'm not a big fan of "buying paid apps" (if you know what I mean) but after trying this one out I definitally HAD TO BUY IT. It is worth its money and if you combine it with a cpu governer YOUR BATTERY LIFE WILL SKYROCKET. Root required.

Keeps Crashing For Some reason on galaxy note 10.1 2014 edition it hasn't requested root access even though I'm definitely rooted and I think as a result of this it crashes after any button press

Fine-tuned control of apps This is one of the first apps I install after re-flashing my phones. The UI makes it easy to identify which apps begin running after which system triggers. I know that most people use it to reduce bloat and regain some processing and RAM and extend battery life, and it certainly helps with all those things. Your phone will be faster and hold charge longer without all of the automated app processes that add up over time. However, its best utility is probably in terms of privacy protection. Gemini App Manager lets you firewall individual apps, but Autostarts lets you make sure they're not even running without your permission. You would not believe how many of your apps start invisible background processes to send your data home (nothing nefarious, usually, just aggregate data collection for marketing/ analytics.) You don't often get to choose itemized permissions to accept when using a Google Play app, so being able to control where and when your data is accessed by controlling processes with Autostarts is probably worth the price for privacy-oriented users.

Permanent changes cannot be undone I made changes to google services framework and cannot activate them anymore. I unistalled it, did a whole nandroid restore and the changes could not be reverted. How? There must be a file in the sd card where the changes are written. Fuc...ing sh...t app. Not undoing, no backing up options. Dev is irresponsible
