    I haven't rooted my phone because I don't want to void my warranty (I know, I'm a wuss), but reviews say this app is miraculous, you know, water into wine, one day battery life into two day battery life. Sounds good to me.

    You can forget about other "batter savers" , this app is all you're looking for; only app that can improve your battery. It works both with rooted and non-rooted apps.

    If you want your battery to last long without using any battery saver app then this is for you.Hibernate all your apps which eat ram in background and make your smartphone slow.Apps start only when you open them.you can also automate hibernation after sometime.

    If you're rooted you need Greenify. It hibernates apps which constantly run in the background and uselessly wake your phone up. Everything works smoothly then. Just don't greenify apps you need notifications for. For other root apps check out my new channel, don't wanna spam this channel with Root apps, many people are probably not rooted.

    REQUIRES ROOT Forget about all the battery saving apps out there, they're most of the time just doing the opposite.. AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT using a task killer, if you wonder why just google it. Greenify is one of the few that actually works and not just a scam or placebo, it does so by hibernating misbehaving apps. If you want it in more detail read the play store description.

    Only way I know how to stop my SGN3 'my magazine' application from using memory in the background when not in use except for the rom manager solution.

    Apposaurus: A classic among root recommendations. Allows you to put apps/services that run in the background and stop the phone from sleeping into "hibernation", thus gaining you precious extra battery life. The pro version allows you to hibernate apps and services and still receive notifications, thus getting all the pros and none of the cons of using this service.

Featured as Lifehacker's Top 1 Utility in 2013 Best Android Apps ( http://goo.gl/1VMwnE), Android Authority's Top 3 Best Root Apps ( http://goo.gl/g0L0qZ). NEW: Auto-hibernation now works in non-root mode, (need to be enabled in experimental features setting, Android 4.1+ required). If you have secure key-guard enabled, try "Hibernate and Lock Screen" shortcut or "Pull up" gesture on Home soft-key.

Never should your phone or tablet become slower and battery hungrier after lots of apps installed. With Greenify, your device can run almost as smoothly and lastingly as it did the first day you had it!

Greenify help you identify and put the misbehaving apps into hibernation when you are not using them, to stop them from lagging your device and leeching the battery, in an unique way! They can do nothing without explicit launch by you or other apps, while still preserving full functionality when running in foreground, similar to iOS apps!

Please report bugs in the XDA forum (http://goo.gl/ZuLDnE) or G+ community (http://goo.gl/MoszF).

Greenify NEVER EVER collects your personal data despite the capability of accessibility service, it just takes advantage of it to automate things.

IMPORTANT: Greenifying an app implies that you are aware that all the background functionality (service, periodic task, event receiver, alarm, widget update, push message) of this app will become out of service during the hibernation except when you are using this app.

NEVER greenify alarm clock apps, instant messaging apps unless you don't rely on them. Please do verify the impact of greenified apps on which you heavily rely.

Compared to other popular tools aimed for the similar purpose, Greenify offers the following advantages:

◆ Unlike the "Freeze" feature in "TitaniumBackup Pro" that totally disable the app, you can still use your app as usual, share content with it. No need to freeze & defrozen it.

◆ Unlike "Autostarts", you can benefit from almost all of its advantages, without needing to deal with the complexity and risk of obscure app components, and never lose functionality when app is actively running.

◆ Unlike any "XXX Task Killer", your device will never fall into the cat-mouse-game of stealthy-running and aggressive killing, which unnecessarily consumes more battery juice.

Note: Greenify does need a background running service for auto-hibernation to work. It is designed and implemented in extremely lightweight, with an average RAM footprint less than 5M, and nearly zero CPU and battery consumption.
