    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.

    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.

    App Hibernation: This monitors apps in the background and 'hibernates' them. If you don't have root, it isn't automated, but you will only need to tap on a homescreen shortcut. It lends a feeling of freshness while using the mobile - makes it feel just a week old. "Don't kill your apps. Put them to sleep." {Cue the crickets, and that lone dork laughing at the back of the room.}

    The first app I have installed after rooting my cell. In nonrooted phones after you do a ram clean,the services like whatsapp,messenger and lots more start automatically consuming the cleared ram within few minutes.what greenify does is,it lets you select those apps and they won't be running in the background,unless you manually open those.On my 512 mb ram android and installing lots of apps I barely got around 70 mb ram free and now I am getting about 170 mb.awesome app,it truly renews your phone.

    Greenify is the strongest reason for anyone to root. But now, the app brings it power-saving goodness to us mere mortal who are bound by warranty. The manual hibernation, while not as cool as automatic hibernation while still receiving notification, still helps a lot with wakelock and idle battery-drain problem. Very recommended.

Description

Show me more

NEW: Non-root working mode is now supported in 2.0+, but still in early stage. It currently lacks auto-hibernation due to privilege restriction. Try "Hibernate All" shortcut (widget) for convenience. On Android 4.1+, an accessibility service can be activated to automate this manual procedure, thus eliminate all the clicks. Greenify NEVER EVER collects your personal data despite the capability of accessibility service, it just takes advantage of it to automate things.

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!

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).

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/urHEa) or G+ community (http://goo.gl/MoszF).

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 do need a background persistent "Cleaner" service to put the greenified apps back into hibernation when you are not actively using them. It is designed and implemented in extremely lightweight, with an average RAM footprint at 3M in total, and nearly zero CPU and battery consumption.
