New Androïd Startup Management Tools


Based on:,8244.msg20983.html#msg20983

Devnullius's Favourites (in no particular order):

- ES Task Manager (
Remarks: Suggest:Enable means: 'Is a System Tool' and Suggest:Disable means: 'Is not a System Tool'
- System Tuner (
All round a VERY nice all-round android tuner.
- App Ops Starter (many alternatives)
'App Ops' is the Android 4.3's and 4.4 Hidden App Permission Manager. This is a new Android feature for startup management - with a twist. Instead of listing your programs and setting permission flags on or off, this tool shows the last programs that "did" something. There you can chose to remove those permissions.


Also Good:

- Gemini App Manager (


Works nice, but I encountered crashes at some point...:

- Startup Manager (Full) 4.1
I have warez version that started to crash somewhere going to app number 400 to 600. I liked this one very much.
And while I write this, I found out it started working again! Strange bug, I did disable a few more startup programs, but... That shouldn't interfere with this programs functioning! At the moment I have even less free RAM than usual (avast bug: after scanning new apps... :s)
- ROM Toolbox Pro (
I have warez version 5.9.5. This is a special and sad story. It is my FAVOURITE startup tool (it shows current running processes and gives detailed management over startup flags per app). BUT...
See: "Max amount of possible installed android apps?",8119.msg21855.html#msg21855 . In short: Rom Toolbox cannot handle more than 600+ installed apps. Then, the list will crash when displaying all your apps. Also remember there is a bug on android 4.2.1 (Samsung i9300), where even the system list of your installed apps would crash... See:,8119.msg21101.html#msg21101

That's about it - but I'm still open to suggestions :)

... Karma!

:) I had seen it before, but it's not a startup manager. Only an after-the-fact task killer... not the same! ;p

One other thing devnullius:
The Pink collared text is very difficult to read.  ;)
All most like the white you did not use. ;D

I'm still rebuilding - there were a few handy McAfee apps (I remember a dial tool* to protect against dialer hijacking and more).

So while I do not like McAFee on Windows, I'm starting to dislike Avast on Android... Maybe I should go McAFee all the way on Droid? We'll see... :>

Thanx for the tip, added! (But I'm not sure what it has to do with startup management...;p)
