    Only 2 stars because of the following: It is great that you stay on top of your app by pushing updates. Sadly, you are pushing them way too often TBH. It's a pain in the A$$ needing to go and re allow the permission each and every time. Pls, unless it for a critical matter, hold off on releasing them instead of pushing one out as quick as possible.

  2. Basement Coals-avatar

    It Can Close Running Apps With 1 Click/Tap On a Shortcut/icon☺,THANKS. User Can Add Running-Apps in Exception list☺. FEATURE-REQUEST: PLEASE ADD OPTION To AUTO-CLOSE twice (Pre-Selected Running Apps) After A SELECTABLE PERIOD Of Time CONTINUOUSLY. Pls Also Add Option To Monitor RUNNING-APPS LIST To AUTO-SHUT CERTAIN Annoying APPS, IMMEDIATELY AFTER THOSE APPS START-UP, and Since It Will Access PRIVATE DATA (Running-Apps List), So We Request Pls Remove All External-Net Activity/Connections.

    Why do certain apps not Force Stop? After it runs usual suspects have to manually be shut. For the most part this does what it's supposed to do. But I notice when I run it, things start up that were not on before. I do refresh it to make sure it has all apps running that it will be shutting down. After it does, 3 constant apps keeps appearing on the list, that I then shut down manualy, and they stay off for quite a while. Curious...hmmm? Update. What's with all the updates.

  4. Faisal Ali-avatar

    A little bug in this app, i am open this app 2nd time, so i should twice click on/off assebility shortcut.

  5. Stevie Keyz-avatar

    Best app shutdown hands down! ✋ force closes each one correctly.

  6. Steve Mayle-avatar

    Brilliant app, this actually works great, it closed some running apps, i checked & they had stopped and only google chrome restarted itself, top marks for a top app.

  7. Kenneth Darby-avatar

    This is by far the best app or its kind on my opinion. The top of the heap.

  8. Michal R-avatar

    Very good apps. It kills all the sheets in your phone effectively to save battery, RAM and your data as well. I used this app every time when l take my phone to hand before I start to do anything on it. Hovewer most of the unwanted Android apps comes back later on but only the rooting phone would help completely.

    I agree with some of the users here who are using this app. When you do use this app it does shut everything down and i can see and tell the difference in my game performance but how ever like some users here they DNT stay closed. Only for a period of time they do but then they just reopen. Then iv got to log off my game..reclose them again then get bck to my game..really annoying.

  10. Paula Fulton-avatar

    Awesome. Does just what it says, nothing more, nothing less. Absolutely fantastic!! Thank you Dev. UPDATE... Still just as satisfied as I was when I downloaded this app. UPDATE : It's been a while (months) since I began using this app and I still love it. I have come to rely on it. I cannot thank you enough for this simple little thing called trust. Well done.

    If my tablet slows down, I use this app. My tablet speeds up immediately! So I know this App works. It is very important to specify which apps are to be excluded from the shutdown, otherwise secondary apps dealing with time, astronomy, weather and coundowns will malfunction. I would like to see this app babysit and automatically shut down specific misbehaving nonuninstallable apps. You won't know the bennefits of this type of app unless you try it for yourself, it really makes a difference!

  12. Island Tman-avatar

    Confusing and not intuiatvely or clear how tobuse

  13. Steve Hodge-avatar

    Works very well. Closing apps that don't need to remain open in background has eliminated some irritations, such as stuttering online newspaper. Excellent.

  14. Lisa Gomez-avatar

    So far so good, thank you and keep up the good work.👌👍☺😍 great app, I really love this app and don't want to uninstall it until the upgrade made made it difficult for me.

  19. Mama Mize-avatar

    So far this has been great. Saving battery and storage just like it said.

  20. Tara Green-avatar

  22. Grady Nashe-avatar

    The duration of shut down doesn't last that long. I can't keep coming back to tap this app.

    Does what it claims to do. Simple, adless and sufficient.

  37. kb4vay-avatar

    Keeps my phone operating at peak performance and the battery running cool. Great app!!!

  38. Carla Estrada-avatar

    It does nor show if and when apps being or been closed

  39. Hitokiri R.S.-avatar

    I'd say it works half way cause a lot of times when I decide to close all my apps (specially Face Book) in order to play "lag free", I go back into this app just to see that most of the apps I just closed 5 seconds ago are back open again. Don't know what's the deal with that, but I need to repeat process for it to really work. Otherwise would probably gave it a 4 or 5 stars.

  40. Catherine Morgan-avatar

    Catherine Morgan


    Simple, easy to use interface. No frills here, just does what it's supposed to do-shuts off running apps. Allows you to "blacklist" apps so that they aren't labeled for shut-off, which is useful if force stopping certain apps causes issues for you, or you just want to keep certain apps running no matter what. No ads, and no purchases necessary to enjoy all features of this app. Would recommend.

  41. Davidson John David-avatar

    Working only for the first time when u install then it keeps on asking for permission . even after you have enabled the permission this is not working. You have to uninstall and again install to fix this issue... Can you please fix this issue asap ?

  42. Spencer Sqwall-avatar

    Gets the job done. In this day and age if you're phone isn't rooted, the best thing for your phone is just to shutdown running apps, utility apps that say that they can clean memory and other things, when you're phone isn't rooted, they are manly lying to you; Showing you a cool clean up your phone graphic, but not doing really anything on the back end. Other than being dishonest it'a not their fault, it's just the lasest version of Android, don't allow apps to clean your system anymore

  43. Patricia Wynn Norman-avatar

    Patricia Wynn Norman


    A super frustrating waste of time! Developer is clueless about providing instructions. Never before have I suspected a rating to be fake. Well, there's a first time for everything. heck, look down below and see what I mean. The tell us more optional commenting area immediately asks, "Is the content of the app in English?" What are the response options? "No" and "not sure." Yep. Couldn't be more clear that this guy is clueless.

  44. Bobby Christon-Walker-avatar

    Bobby Christon-Walker


    It KEPT crashing and/or asking for permission to shut down apps. Almost every time I used it, I had to give it access. Hopefully, this gets corrected and I can download the app again.

  45. larry dooby-avatar

    This actually shuts down each app down using Android services which means they stay shut off. What I like most? it doesn't wear down your battery by constantly accessing the internet and upload your personal information. In fact it doesn't even ask for that service. This app is first-rate and one of my must have apps! For the complainers that you got to give it permission every time it starts, deselect (AppShut) from the list & U won't have2 repeat unless U restart your phone!

  46. M B-avatar

    I enjoy how this app works, it's much easier than going into settings, scrolling down to apps and then if you are like me having apps open from games and it drains your battery from doing an update along with other self starting apps, it's a pain to go into each one to force stop. The AppShut app eliminates that by giving you boxes to check to stop unwanted running apps and also has an option to exempt apps that you want to keep running. I highly recommend this app. Very user friendly too.

  47. Randall Johnstone-avatar

    Randall Johnstone


    Nice app, closes all that i see. I would pay for option to inhibit apps opening once identified - what app shows now is apps that have opened. Whats the point of learning which apps open if you can't choose to stop them from opening, short of deletion that is. For example, If i could, I would not open maps unless I needed maps, etc. I love the simplicity and ease of use. I have deleted some anoying apps due to their constant restarting and looked/found similar "happy" replacement apps.

  48. Klaatu58-avatar

    Functions fine on Oreo 8.1 as a process monitor to see which apps are running and killing those that aren't necessary. Like the dark theme. Exceptions list not alphabetized. Runs in background. Accessibility permission is lost if closed by developer's other app, KillApps. No option for backup to SD card instead of device. Needs a dynamic memory bar.

  49. anyeg2010-avatar

    Wow! I went from 4gb to 8gb of free available ram on my 12 gb ram OnePlus 7 Pro phone Apps that were runnings all the time that don't need to be are killed. Everything works great, smooth, phone is even faster with no hickups what so ever. Very straight forward, simple and user friendly. The one tap kill shortcut is great. Thanks AppShut. 😁😁😁😁😁

  50. Diesel Estate-avatar

    Sensational. Had prior use of Mr. Ouadaban's other task/app run controllers which, are alright. However, this app smacks the ball out of the stadium. Better than Kaspersky! Direct comparison for killed tasks/apps: Kaspersky - 4. Ouadaban - 22. Without exaggeration, that is the actual result & I used Ouadaban's after Kaspersky. Having used most of the task/app killers in the Playstore, I declare AppShut is the ultimate search & destroy killer. Returning phone control & battery life to you. Bravo.

    when more than 8 apps is running, must run several time for stop everything.

  52. Chiagozie Ogbonna-avatar

    Chiagozie Ogbonna


    This actually does what it says! That's good. But... I always have to enter the app in order to close the other apps? Maybe you could implement a panel on the status bar that lets us close all apps with literally a push of a button.

  53. Vince Anthony-avatar

    the best app that Force Stop your chosen app that needed to be closed. it really works specially to android phones that have smaller RAM. but hopefully there would be an automatic appshut feature of this app so i wont need to keep on going to the appshut to close background app in my phone. thanks to the developer of this app.!

  54. Chris Terry-avatar

    Does not close a thing, only flashes and looks good.

  55. Feitu-avatar

    I rate it 5 stars why? First it gets the job done at to y'all who play games and lags , fps drop (frame per second) and ur wondering why is it lagging, its because background apps are running if ur a gamer i recommend u download it now i just tried it now im not lagging I play mobile legends and devs thank you si much fir this wonderful app

  56. Martin Cairns-avatar

    O U T S T A N D I N G. On principle, I do not give five star ratings regularly. Not even occasionally. It has to be something Really Special to warrant five stars... Which is what AppShut is. If you are looking for a task/app killer, your search is over. AppShut is what you need.

  57. ReignInBlood313-avatar



    I absolutely love all of Youseff's apps! Thank you so much! I bought one of the app shut apps... Seems like there are 3 really similar apps from Youseff. They're all good!

    Steven Weber has another app that is junkSHUTUP these kinds of apps are a joke!only after the $$$ads,additions..etc.. literally seconds after you close the app they all start back up again!! certainly this app cannot close them for any length of time not even one minute!! the developers answer is totally false!.1

    seems to work fine. Some apps reopen but I imagine that's an Androud thing? I'm no techie for sure. Waiting for an app closer that does it without manual implementation.

  61. Lim Boon Teik-avatar

    Keep asking for Allow display over other application

  62. Gary K-avatar

    Very bad on setting, always require to get more access but a day later ask for access again and on and on, not work but keep asking and troubles. Old version much simple and just close apps, but the old version is gone, can switch back?

  64. TheWarden-avatar

    Don't understand how apps can reopen after shut

  69. carlos sanchez-avatar

    hey APPSHUT team 🏋🏌⛷🚵🏂🐒🐒🐒🐒🐒 now that I've used your app WHAT I WONDER is WHY is the APP CLOSING process SO SLOW ???????????????????????????. if the app satisfied my need then I would RATE 4 or 5 but with the above said 2star seems fair #KEYWORD speed

  70. Paul Nyaga-avatar

    love it . It has solved my force stop needs. other apps couldn't completely kill the app without root access. This one does. Big ups devs.

  71. L3X0R-avatar

    Better then expected. I checked other apps and I returned to this cause it also kills (force stops) the cached apps.

  72. rami pubg-avatar

    Great for killing apps and freeing memory. I wish it would prevent those apps from starting. Maybe have a user maintained list of 'Auto-kill these apps:'

  92. Yvette Latina-avatar

    Lies, lies, lies. Doesn't close anything. the novice will be fooled but not all. leave some apps open then run the program and you will see for yourself.
