Spotlight: Auto Memory Cleaner for Android automates memory cleanup without killing innocent apps
Does your Android device have memory problems? Here, try Auto Memory Cleaner. This is an application that cleans redundant stuff from your memory to boost your device's speed and performance. What makes the difference here is that your running processes and their tasks are merely restarted, not killed off. This is supposed to be more effective and device-friendly than your typical task killer or memory cleaner. This method also prevents memory overflow and boosts the speed of your device.

Auto Memory Cleaner is usually left running in background, automatically doing all the work for you. You can set it so if you want to clean up memory at a specific time or every time when the screen is turned on/off. Auto Memory Cleaner also lets you restart any running process manually.

Some of the app's features are reserved for the premium version, though. Auto memory cleaning when screen goes on and in specific daytime are available as in-app purchases. But the rest of the goods, such as auto mem cleaning when screen goes off and mem cleaning for specific apps, listing of the running processes, memory graph & infos, are up for grabs. Customization runs reasonably deep — for example, you can exclude certain apps from the memory cleaning routines.

A solid app overall, Auto Memory Cleaner can be downloaded from Google Play.

Are these kinds of apps even effective? Consider the likes of Greenify that is effective because it NEEDS root. Otherwise, it's like the "Clear All" button on the Galaxy's, nothing more...

thats how i see these apps, Just clear all. I have tried a few of these apps when my phone starts to slow down and i really don't see any improvement

Well based on the description this does it automatically without having to hit the "clear all" button and it doesn't close "innocent" apps. Seems quite explanatory really, but the question is does it work and how does it identify "innocent" apps? Needs testing. :)

No they aren't. At least not on Android.

Thanks for the article. Can anyone please recommend me the best app that will automatically force stop/close/quit unnecessary running apps. I have LG G3 D855 and I am using ShutApp but I have to manually force stop apps. I don't want routing my phone. I don't believe to RAM/memory/background cleaners because they will automatic start again and the battery will quickly drain when it repeatedly done if you set for every 5/10/15/20/30/60 mins. Please, please, please guys. Thanks

You can try Servicely by Francisco Franco ! It is almost similar to what greenify can do and can be used as a Greenify alternative and you will also need root !

Guys, are there any apps that will automatically coolify my system by doing force stop running apps for unrouted phones. RAM/mem/background cleaners are battery draining apps

I'm using clean master. Honestly, it came with the phone all I do is just click clean every morning.

Task-manager/memory cleaner apps for phones is just all BS. They make it look like it is doing something and they do nothing. I have tried them on stock firmware, rooted phones and custom ROM's and they simply don't work. As soon as the RAM is cleared and the cache, it's cleared for a few seconds and fills right back up. What I have learned to do is actually read the popup when you install apps. When you see what it needs to access to work, then you will know if its going to suck RAM all the time or only when open. Apps that need network attention, or rely on any Google service work will most of the time always be memory resident. These cleaners simply arent going to work on those, because the app needs those services in order to work. Also, another reason these don't work is, Android is a VM. Virtual Machines take over the functions of RAM/CPU/GPU. Apps that run inside the VM don't have direct access to RAM/CPU/GPU. They are basically using the VM memory where the VM isolates the request of the user and execute the command. Those apps are not using real RAM. This is the advantage operating systems that have direct hardware access and why they work better and why speed tests are BS. This info from VMware explains how Virtual machines work and how applications are handled. Even though the PDF is about x86 applications, ARM virtual machines work the same. The only ways these types of apps will really work is, Android needs to use source code that has direct hardware access, much like Android x86. Android X86 is also a VM, but works more like VMWare where applications can have direct hardware access in some cases. These apps free or not are just time wasters and memory hogs. I've stopped installing them.

So when I find my battery has dropped 40% over the day with no actual use due one app keeping my radio active, your saying that app clearly wasn't doing anything!!!......I see. That makes perfect sense, sorry but app killers are needed. Anyone who uses a phone with Lollipop will have experienced this, Android is crap at managing background apps.

The only thing that will help android devices is to be able to remove any application I dont want or need on my device. Not disbled and still taking up space...REMOVED completely.

Disabled is fine, doesn't really matter with 64GB+ devices.
