You really need to be rooted to get the full experience out of this app. There is little point in it without root access.

With root access, however, it's a life saver. Google Play Services, for example, is known to regularly release updates with wake lock inducing bugs that drain your battery faster than you can figure out what's wrong.

Autostarts lets you identify what services are running in the background, stop them, and prevent them from being run again in the future.

If you don't know what background services are or what they do then this app is not for you. You need to be rooted and have a firm understanding of what you are doing to the background processes of Android before using this app. But if you do understand all that stuff, this app is a must have.

Take back control of your phone!!!

It's really great app. Now I know which application starts at boot. Can disable or enable. I hope author will update amazon version to the last one I see on his website. After that five stars will be given. Please do that. Thanks.

This is a great app. I can't give it 5 stars until it's updated to the latest version. Google play store version is 1.81 while Amazon is 1.75.

I downloaded this and did not notice there was a requirement for rooted device. Mine is not. No reflection on the app; just my poor eyesight. However, I thought we had a time period to request a refund from Amazon. I went to Amazon within 5 minutes and there was no way to do that. In fact, it said that once you've bought it, you've got it. No Refunds. As much as I dislike the app store (especially the new one), that's where I'll go.

(Note: I'm giving it 5 stars because it's not fair to penalize the app for my error/Amazon's policy).
