[App] Greenify *ROOT*
Greenify : No more envy for your friends’ iPhone which never become slow and battery hungry after lots of apps installed.
With Greenify , your Android device can also run almost as smooth and lasting as the first day you have it!
Greenify help you identify and put the bad behaving apps into hibernation when you are not using them, stop them from battery leeching, memory hogging and stealthy running, in an elegant and unique way! They could do nothing without your explicit launch, while still have full functionality when running in foreground. Like what iOS apps act!
NEW App Analyzer will analyze and show apps in your device that keep running persistent services and those launch itself automatically on a regular basis (when network connectivity changes, or every time you unlock your device, install / uninstall / update your apps, etc).
ROOT is required for Greenify to work. If you are still experiencing hibernation issue, this may be caused by your root management app (e.g. “SuperUser”), please try installing “SuperSU” instead.
Compared to other popular tools aimed for the similar purpose, Greenify give you the unique experience:
Unlike the “Freeze” feature in “TitaniumBackup Pro” that totally disable your app, you can use your app as usual, share content with it, put the widget on your launcher, without any uncomfortable impact on user experience. Greenify is nearly transparent! Set and forget~
Unlike “App Quarantine”, you can launch your app in any way as usual. No more crafted app-launch widgets, no more manual disabling.
Unlike “Autostarts”, you can benefit almost all its advantages, but never need to deal with the complexity of obscurely named app components, and never lose functionality when app is actively running.
Unlike any “XXX Task Killer”, your device never fall into the cat-mouse-game of stealthy-running and aggressive killing, which unnecessarily consumes much battery juice. Since all greenified apps will be put into hibernation until the next time you launch them, there is no need to “kill” them during the hibernation.
As the bottom line, 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 light-weight, with an average RAM footprint at 2M in total, and nearly zero CPU and battery consumption.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Greenifying an app implies that you want this app to hibernate, thus all the background functionality of this app will become out of service during the hibernation except when you are using this app. The background functionality includes but not limited to:
Broadcast receivers, which respond to global device events, such as network state change, SMS reception.
Alarms, which activate background task at specific time or interval.
Widget update. Widget can be displayed but never update since periodic update involves background task.
Push message. Push is also disabled since it would activate background task on Android, unlike iOS which just shows up messages to user.
DO NOT greenify alarm clock apps, instant messaging apps, launcher apps unless you never rely on them. Please be sure to verify the impact to greenified apps on which you heavily relies.
Greenify user reviews :
fails to hibernate apps after screen turned off: “please ensure ROOT privilege granted”… it does work if I manually hibernate the app
Was skeptical at first. Seemed to good to be fully functional. After installing, I keep getting failed to hibernate / not allowed root access. So I grant access, failed hibernate, rinse and repeat. Same thing. After installing another app called Super User by Chainfire, this app is now keeping root access. Don’t necessarily like installing another app for another app to work, but hey, anything for better performance.
