    So difficult so read & set up. No instructions or hint in the app, just some weird icons to play with.

    Whether you are a non root or root user this app gives you the tools to control a lot of stuff. I've been using this for a while, donated and opened some other functions as well and love it!

    In Android 11, can persist the brevent active status even after the unplugging from PC but when the screen will lock it will go back to read-only mode. Please fix

    I installed in my MIUI ROM and also paid for premium. I found that MIUI is switching off wireless debug everytime I restart my phone or few hours after standby. It means that this app needs a bit of tweak for MIUI rom. I have sent several emails to developer and no response at all. I requested refund which is also not responded by the developer. Very poor communication on developer side. I couldn't comment on the performance at this time. Anyone intending to use, check with developer before pay

    On OOS Android 11 Google Play Protect identifying it as harmful app, please solve the issue.

    Such a bad thing that an app like this is not open source, and has no open source alternative afaik. I get it when devs want to make money, but one day some dude will make an open-source one, and privacy minded people won't even hesitate for the switch. There are dozens of projects making money while having open source code, just a reminder.

    3 stars because wording in UI is so diffcult to distinguish and so confused (for example in 3 dot option menu when selecting app) thats lead me to disable apps, (WITHOUT CONFIRMATION THOUGH). I think the word "disable" in 3dot menu mean select disable apps, but it isnt, its actually disable app without confirmation. SO BEWARE EVERY ACTION INSIDE THIS APP. THIS APP HAVE UI EXPERIENCE PROBLEM THAT LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM; SO ITS NOT VERY SUITABLE FOR SOME POWER USER

    It's the best auto optimising app for (low-end) android devices!!! Perfect and fast to close by clear the recent apps! But one issue in privilege mode: I'm use BlackBerry Priv (unrootable) and tired about excuting app adb code after reseting my phone. Can you fix it? Please fix it cause I really like this app... Thanks to dev!

    Quite subpar to other apps, e.g. what happens when you forget to press the back key? The app never gets closed! It will keep running in the background and decreasing your battery permanently! The developer denies to discuss this, but he sure charges you money if your device is rooted!!
