The app does work, however, i had hoped for something more. I was expecting it to allow me to adjust, alter, and manage my memory manually (further than the few options it allows). It gets the job done but is not as thorough as i would like it to be. It would be five stars had there been a way to manually alter the memory managers settings, allowing for apps and various other memory consuming programs to be organized in such a way as to minimize memory loss.
All of the other apps are useless, but this one is best also for those phones that are not rooted. I have tried other task managers and this one does a better job of customizing your level of control to kill apps running in the background or foreground. I love it!
Awesome for rooted phones, so so otherwise
This app is way better than than task killers if you've got a rooted phone. It lets you adjust androids built in memory manager settings. If you're phone isn't rooted its just acting like a normal auto task killer and that's why some of you have said it eats battery. In root mode it adjusts the kernel settings and doesn't even run in the background. In non root mode it has to stay running and poll the system every so often to make sure it keeps up with your settings. So make sure to run it with root access!
This app saved my phone. My phone has been extremely laggy and sluggish for a very long time. I tried many different apps claiming to improve my phone's performance and nothing helped...this was to the point I was ready to drop $700 on a new phone I was that frustrated. Then I read about this app on pc mag. I tried it. I have now re-fallen in love with my phone! Thanks for this app!
I've never reviewed an app, but this one made me. It is great. Its different than the other memory boosters in that it allows you to adjust automatic settings to constantly keep your phone running smoothly. I don't have a very powerful Android, so this app was a godsend.

This app is doing what it can do, as described. I have been installing and uninstalling several apps similar to this app, but this is flawless and I won't let it go! I can browse like a thunder now.
Awesome but for a very less time.
I was using it due to keyboard disappearing in Kitkat version of my phone. At first it worked like charm and still it is. The problem is that whenever I use Facebook and messenger, the keyboard disappereance problem comes back because the kill priority is set back to 2 by system which I changed to -17 by keeping it in memory. I think its bug of my ROM not yours.
Made my phone useable again
My galaxy s advance really started struggling with running newer apps and would sometimes force close the active app. Thanks to this I can now run those apps smoothly, and responsiveness in federal increased.
Among the best non root optimizations bar none
Mitigates memory usage approaching unstable levels without practically affecting Android's capacity to cache. Free, no ads, and simply effective. Applicable to most out of box devices independendent of total RAM capacity, particularly those with less refined memory managers (ie Touchwiz). 2 years of in depth use proved this app to be worthy of a review to me.
It's a great app
Excellent app!! Worked for me. By the way can you suggest a good range? I mean I got only 512mb ram.. Sometimes some app just get cut abruptly... Suggest something customized.. Thanks in advance! Cheers

Upload and see how awesome this app works. Thanks so much. I only wish that they put an address so that I could send money because I don't like to do that stuff on the internet. God bless the maker of this app. You saved me so much hassle! Thank you, thank you!
I have had System Mechanic on my PC for years and it's great. Tried this app on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and it appears to work really well. Freed up 19Mb of Memory in a few days. Good and fast responce from developer, if any queries or problems. Had a small problem with a Call Blocker app until I added it to White List. Worth taking time with setup of app.
Seriously awesome (y)
After so many days of searching I finally got a software which satisfies my need. I have been looking for such kind of tool which could auto kill the application efficiently without asking me what he has to do and this is it. Best memory manager app. Finally feeling like rooting the device was a help.
I have to give this app my thumbs up. It has freed up my resources for days after reboot. I am getting the paid version to support the developer. A few suggestions though: I would love to see the % of resources used or left on my notification bar. I have another app to do just that and I would like to have it all in one app. Also, I would like to be able to add apps from the recently killed app list to the white list.
Seem outdated as latest update is 2013, like seriously there is no maintanance have been done iolo? Yet, the app still working as it should. But, better have more feature in order to compete other tons of app.
Yes i like your work!
I try many apps for boost my Tablet,but this app really works for my Samsung galaxy Note 8 Tablet! I can't understand some people critical this app! This Software is a must have!! Thank you very much for Auto Memory Manager! And also thank you for the development Team!
Really nice, but priorities not working
Hey! Thabks for this app, it's amazing!! I just have one problem: every time I change the priority of a process, after some seconds it returns to its default priority. What could be the problem? I am using stock S5. Thx!
works great for me
i have an acer a500, samsung transform ultra and an lg optimus and all 3 it works great on you just have to have the correct settings for each of your devices to have it do what it is meant to. i watch a lot of netflix and when i loaded it before the app it would lag badly with the app there is no more super lag starting it....no it dont work on network settings but the start up of appz was faster specially with a low mem device.

A BIG THANK YOU..
to Mad squirrel & company for this awesome app. Before this, I've owned DS battery saver pro (kill type), tried Greenify (hibernate type) and few others but still got problems and bugs. This app is the perfect one. It manages unwanted apps in an really innovative way... A must have!
Best that I have found
This app made my phone feel brand new again. Everything is quick ans does not lag anymore. The only problem I have is switching between apps sometimes the app I want will be closed before I can get back to it. It is a small price to pay for a quick phone again though. If it did not require root access I would install it on all of my friends phones.
"Low Memory" a thing of the past.
Installed on both of our phones, an LG Optimus G and an ATT Double-time, which were both getting Low Memory notices with concurrent interruption of whatever was loading/running at the time...constant problem on the ATT phone. After installing this app, we have not had a single Low Memory notice the whole first week on either phone, and a quick check shows almost 3 times as much internal memory available than we ever had before. No performance loss that we can detect, and no extra battery drain that we have noticed. A VERY GOOD APP.
When I was biting my heads off trying to deal with numerous task killers on the market, this app came to my rescue. I don't have to worry about the ram any more. This app is like a guardian angel to my phone.....:)
Use this on my phone and what a difference, very fast so I tried it on my Asus TF700t tablet though it said design for phones and now it's running a lot faster! All 4 of my devices have this app,by the way it cleared up lag as well!
I usually never post comments because I am so skeptical of software...but this one is amazing! You can set radical limits on available memory and leave it alone. There are no system errors or crashes as a result, and you can see the available memory being cleared up constantly without having to monitor the program. Thank you for making a quality download available!
This Is More Like It!
I like running it on aggressive. That works best for me. Where to buy the premium version? Sold American.
A must have for laggy devices
Its seriously awesome. Excluding gaming performance, it just keeps device in god mode. And custom value set is also a worth try to keep device smooth.
I have tried so many apps like this before and they were nothing but a lying pain in the butt. This app is the BOMB! No joke it works perfectly. Thank you so much for it doing exactly what you said it would do. .no deception here.
Works on HTC One_M8
Using, seems to work well. Very unobtrusive. With HTC battery saver ON, getting good battery life. IF you want a lot of bells and whistles, don't use this. It just does what it does with minimal notifications. I like it. I have used their PC products for years!
Wanted something simple to improve Android memory management (which is not the most efficient). Tried several apps but they were way too "techie" for me. This one fits the bill. Pick a plan (Aggressive, Mild, or Default) and hit Apply - all done. Doesn't get much simpler and it works.
GALAXY NOTE N7000
This app does superb on my note with the ultimate jellybean rom.. the rom was fine to start with but after about 2 weeks became laggy even though i used task managers.. then i got this and well it works a treat. Thnx to the dev... please also check my apps out.. just search my dev name W4RD. Thnks guys.
One of the Best
I was having battery and performance issues with my HD MAXX and decided to give this a shot, although somewhat skeptical based on previous experience with similar apps. The results have been AWESOME! Much improved performance and after two day's use, I still had 47% battery. Phone operates as good or better than new. When reviewing the task killer history, I had no idea how many apps (that I haven't used in weeks/months) were still hogging resources. This is a great tool and must have!
