Google Play Reviews

  1. guest-avatar

    This app *might* be really good, but the design & UI is so unbelievably confused & unnecessarily complicated, that it's actually impossible to tell if it's doing what's expected (viz. stopping background processes). You need to overhaul the app design & interface to simplify & streamline user interaction. Greenify is reasonably simple: an app either is or isnt 'greenified' whereas it's almost impossible to tell if an app is 'brevented' because there are so many confusing lists, icons, status...

  2. guest-avatar

    flegere 3 stars. Why? After every device reboot, need to connect my device to pc and execute adb command to make it work again! Rest it's great app.

  3. guest-avatar

    cable car The concept of this app is really nice but the server stop my Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 the server stops just after 10-15mins

  4. guest-avatar

    chamonix its a good app but there is a issue as soon as i unplug device from pc it shows notification brevent server stopped fix this issue please i am using android 10

  5. guest-avatar

    brevet I install trhis app and connected to adb, after that brevent said that I have insufficient permission and some features will be unavailable. How's that? What should I do with it?

  6. guest-avatar

    brevet tauchen works exactly as described. plus great ux. i didn't bother using it for too long, though because i won't root, keep using adb or notice any significant battery performances gain. yes, mostly, because of the first 2 issues mentioned. i really rather manage the battery sooner other way. cheers! 😘

  7. guest-avatar

    brevettato I used to get about one and a half days of use out of a charge. Was irritated when that dropped to 12 hours after a system reset, until I realised I forgot to install this little guy here. Now he's mowing down apps in the background again and my power levels are back up!

  8. guest-avatar

    brevet deutsch You need to redo adb shell each time you reboot on Android 9! And some apps like net monitor pro can not be disabled in the background! Are you sure people really buying this app??? Not me!

  9. guest-avatar

    brevetti Great app. Great update. It works again.

    DEVELOPER PLEASE READ: Your app is not compatible with Lineage OS. I have determined that it blocks the Lock Screen or something to that extent, which makes the phone totally unusable and slow (it took me 2 solid minutes to unlock my phone with my finger print). I request that you address this issue, but its your app so you can choose not to. Otther than that, I really enjoyed it, 5/5. If it works I will pay for the root option.

  13. guest-avatar

    What a pity. It won't allow to start server with root. It allowed in old versions. Installing it.

  14. guest-avatar

    Its not in the play store discription but the way copy and paste would help is with a website since it has to be done with a computer . And it seemed to me after failing that starting and stopping logcat made it work . It would really simplify it if you put a link in the play store description where the logcate commands plus the command to starr brevent could simply be copied and pasted .

  15. guest-avatar

    I just started using this app and love it so far. My battery life has improved significantly. If you haven't used Brevent, I highly recommend it. To expedite the adb command after a restart, open notepad; create a batch file with the necessary script. So whenever you restart your device, you won't need to type out the adb command every device reboot, to start Brevent. Create a batch file with [adb devices] followed by [adb -d shell sh /data/data/me.piebridge.brevent/]

  16. guest-avatar

    I Wish the developer made the effort to translate to english correctly. It's very obvious the english within this app was copied from the developer's native language from google translator because while it IS english wording, it doesn't make sense and is confusing. I can't pay for an app if the language doesn't make sense, especially the instructions. Copy and Paste Google Translation does NOT work well because for example: Sentences in English are almost always said backwards in Spanish.

  17. guest-avatar

    Not setup just yet. What does this mean?: Brevent won't force-stop safe apps. In addition, Brevent server brevents apps centrally and delays the processes by 3 to 60 seconds, according to the event level. Is this an app or cloud service? In addition, Brevent server brevents apps centrally Not sure this is what I was expecting.

  18. guest-avatar

    It's awesome app! Finally I can stop alipay from running itself automatically. Only a concern about android auto, whenever I finish using android auto, the Brevent server will stop working, just like after reboot. Is there a way to workaround this? Or it's the nature of android auto?

  19. guest-avatar

    Excellent work! One of the most useful app on my phone! Using non-rooted version. Paid twice to become contributor and support the dev. Only thing I wish is that I could turn off USB debugging, but it's not the dev's fault.

  20. guest-avatar

    It cannot work on Android Pie, I mean, every time after I input the corresponding commands using ADB tools, it workd, and after two or three minutes, it would ask me to open the computer and input the command again, actually weird.

  21. guest-avatar

    the app is good .. but when in previous version u weren able to use root without uninstalling the app every time .. and the lucky choose to brevent more apps .. and all that is very appreciated .. for those who can't pay in the app ☹️

  22. guest-avatar

    I wasn't able to try this as it required USB debugging, and I often restart my phone. Will try again later

  23. guest-avatar

    No worry about background apps. Once an app is brevented (restricted from running in background) its surely inactive in the background. thanks so much. welcome everyone and learn about adb (android debug bridge) first.

  24. guest-avatar

    I absolutely despise happened to use USB dongle mode everytime I phone rebooted get this there's much better options out there like CCSWE.

  25. guest-avatar

    i really want to like this. but the fact that it will not work after reboot is a big disappointment! so close to being perfect, because of this i cant see purchasing.

  26. guest-avatar

    it is excellent. I wonder if applicable to add with brevent ad block.

  27. guest-avatar

    My proximity sensor is not working with the latest update, I turn brevent off and the proximity sensor works just fine, please fix, thank you

  28. guest-avatar

    After restarting phone, you need adb command via USB cable. Except that's good.

  29. guest-avatar

    Amazing developer support thanks to Brevent Team keep making apps to make Android fast and smooth. Thanks to Jiyanyu Studio. this version is working fine no Auto restart experienced nice.

  30. guest-avatar

    this should hv been best if d dev can fix using Adb everytime when rebooting. with greenify is not like this once u execute adb command that's all until u uninstall greenify I believe this can also happen to brevent i don't know why the Dev is holding back

  31. guest-avatar

    Was working alright and then one day one reboot later it does not work with root, instead ask for enabled developer option.

  32. guest-avatar

    an amazing app. made my phone's ram consumption lower. now I don't worry about apps running in the background. thank youu devs :)

  33. guest-avatar

    Needs to debug every time I connect my phone to pc for file transfer. Not very convenient.

  34. guest-avatar

    just horrible update.... after updating today, brevent was not able to force stop apps. please don't post buggy update. I don't know where i can get older version of brevent...

  35. guest-avatar

    really made my s10 plus faster thanks for this great app paid aswell and is there any way to stop restarting phone and using the adb command to make it work again thanks😀😀😀

  36. guest-avatar

    A brief video is needed on the installation process. I just installed the app, but I can't run it. I got stuck somewhere in the process

  37. guest-avatar

    The app would be nice if I could still use the MTP mode on my phone when I plug it into my PC... Any fix or workaround for this? The app does its job tho

  38. guest-avatar

    I under estimated this app, after buying Pro (root) I've monitored its doings. It's fantastic and well worth the dollar

  39. guest-avatar

    Great function, if do not need root will be even better.

  40. guest-avatar

    Make it so that you can use root again... The server keeps stopping and I don't want to connect to a pc evertime.

  41. guest-avatar

    Opened the app and got a "Pay Now" button pop up immediately. "Root is unnecessary, PAY NOW".

  42. guest-avatar

    Just take my money simply and quietly in one time, OK? DO NOT treat yourself as an actor! What a nice app while there being an awful developer!

  43. guest-avatar

    App does exactly what is intended! Confidence hitting that install button!!!

  44. guest-avatar

    Very good. Especially the shell feature. One of a kind.

  45. guest-avatar

    automatically shut down on note10+, please fix it.

  46. guest-avatar

    Doesn't work with root. Didn't even ask for privileges.

  47. guest-avatar

    the app damage wifi- connection, my wifi never disconnected after uninstall this app

  48. guest-avatar

    if I pay it once with google play in brefoil, do I need to pay it again? Will it automatically recognize that I have already paid if I reinstall it or install it on another device with the same google account

  49. guest-avatar

    I understand that USB debugging is necessary. But still have to say that keep it on is too dangerous for a Chinese citizen because police can use adb to scan your phone without permission. Personally I don't recommend Brevent.

  50. guest-avatar

    It stops all of my apps, even not in the brevent list, including this Brevent app itself :(

  51. guest-avatar

    just stick to greenify, this is useless . greenify or naptime are better
