App Freezer seeks RAM and battery hogs, puts them on ice (no root req'd)

App Freezer seeks RAM and battery hogs, puts them on ice (no root req'd)
With the new App Freezer, putting apps on ice has never been easier, as it's now just a tap away, and doesn't require that you have a rooted device to freeze the apps of your choice.

App Freezer can also identify RAM and battery hogging apps, then you can hibernate the heck out of them with just a tap of the finger. There is, of course a whitelist, where you can put your favorites, so that nobody using your phone or you personally, will be able to put those to sleep for eternity. Granted, some apps escape the gilded cage, and reappear, but that is since they have put their tentacles in other apps, and are woken by a different string - the best example of these is, perhaps, the Facebook app. 

Check it out from the source link below, and do some cleaning if you notice too many wakelocks from some hogger app, or want to get some carrier bloatware out of sight without rooting and modding.

I really need something like that to work because I am going to freeze the heck of all the junk that samsung and tmobile install on their phones

can't you just disable them? (i am pretty sure it's a lot better than just freezing your apps) or maybe you just don't have a samsung phone.

Yep but the point of this app is to IDENTIFY which apps hog RAM & battery. Once you identify them you can disable them, as you suggested.

You can already see what's using your RAM & battery in stock Android Unless Samsung removed that (but I don't see why they would, I'm pretty sure its still in TouchWiz)

@vincelongman #5 all you can see is broad % of battery use. You can't DO anything to stop them, or even work out what "screen" really means - which app is using screen? My top battery users according to my Samsung are Screen 65%, then Android System, Google PLAY Services, Android OS, Google App. I've got 30% battery left, so that is a lot of use by stuff that is hidden.

Ask Samsung to make the phone with 6gb Ram. Then you will never ever complain, no matter how and what bloayeare they installed.

I wish I could do that but if you look objectively their phones have gone down pretty significantly in storage when you first boot up over the last year. Mainly because the row over their phones consuming half of the said storage.

We need to have the right to Uninstall or disable apps that we don't need or use like the chineese did

What's the difference between this and greenify?

@redmd #10 I use greenify, with the extras because I am rooted and have XPosed. I imagine it is similar but this looks to have a prettier interface! This claims to freeze but then says apps can restart, so it's more accurate to say it chills apps. Greenify hibernate apps. To freeze properly you need something like Titanium Backup which hides the app from the OS, and also let's you remove apps. Look at the play store-this has 16 top scores and 5 bottom scores, so it is far from universally liked.

This is one reason I did not install the facebook app, once you end the process, it would restart, there is no just way to keep the app quiet, so I uninstalled it, I use facebook lite or just use a browser

currently using Acer and apparently their phones can stop any app from popping up after restart. This is lovely, can't wait to buy a new phone on three months times, life's too short to stick to one manufacture.

There are plenty of ways to Uninstall unused apps without Root Permission. Do some research, it's much better than freezing apps. They'll just be there to waste space. Common sense!

Don't spread misinformation. You can only disable/freeze system apps without root. It's impossible to delete them. For that, you need root.
