Greenify is one of the most useful applications in order to enhance the battery-life. After installing a lot of applications on your phone, androids or tablets are getting slower and battery hungrier as a fact.
The application itself acts like a bit of a task killer, getting down the applications which may be active in memory but not being used. It uses a different method to kill an app on the backround. The method used here not only disables the apps, but it prevents it from coming back to life, which is where the other app killers fail. Greenify uses a method known as am force-stop pkgname as opposed to the commonly used kill. The app hunts for alarms and active ServiceRecords, which act as restore points for the app being killed and gets rid of them. This way, the app is completely disabled without actually completely disabling the app.
Let’s see some features of Greenify;
- Even though there is ability of accessibility services, Greenify never collects personal data. It only uses them to automate things.
- Unlike the “Freeze” feature in “TitaniumBackup Pro” which totally disable the app, you can still use your app as usual. You don’t have to freeze & defrozen it.
- Unlike any task killer apps, your device will never fall into the cat-mouse-game of stealthy-running and aggressive killing, which consumes more battery power.
- Unlike “Autostarts”, you can take advantage of almost all of its features , without needing to deal with the complexity and risk of uncertain app components, and never lose functionality when app is actively running.
NOTE: If you are using Greenify , you should be aware of that all the background functionality such as service, periodic task, event receiver, alarm, widget update, push message ,of this app will become out of service during the hibernation except while using this app. Besides, the app requires root, but other than that, it has no special requirements.
