Remember that time when your device lost 50% of battery life during the night because a gazillion services from careless apps kept keeping your device awake and you have no way to disable them?

Or when apps keep waking up your phone for no reason and you find no way to fix it other than uninstalling it?

Servicely to the rescue!

First of all make sure you're ROOTED (it won't work otherwise). You'll be able to select which apps will be put to sleep when the display goes off. Magic!

You can also disable/enable permanently any service on your device. It's useful if you have services that tend to auto-restart and keep your device awake, or if you have games sending you never-ending notifications.

There's also a feature to prevent apps from running in the background (doesn't force stop or disables them) on your system. It's particularly useful to prevent popular social network apps from constantly keeping your phone awake during idle.

Disable any broadcast receiver from any app on your device!

This app is somewhat powerful so be responsible when using it.

I take no responsibility for any fault or damage caused by any misuse of this app.

Google Play Reviews

  1. Shaun Lin-avatar

    Will be nice if apps in the whitelist are presented at the top of the list of available apps so there's an "at a glance", no need to scroll down. Also to have a cached list so it doesn't wait to load everything. Also, had to whitelist LOS Clock app otherwise alarm does not fire, or fires with no sound.

  2. Mswati Masina-avatar

    Wow this really exceeded my expectations. I'm not throwing shade on my other apps yet what I'm saying is that I only began seeing the difference after installing this app. I have Greenify and Kernel Auditor which are both great yet for my phone I wasn't getting signifant results as my phone would max out at about 19 hours with moderate screen on time use yet after installing Servicely I'm getting well above 2 days battery life standby with moderate SOT so well done developers made my year.

  3. Ben Turner-avatar

    Good app, very useful. Saves battery life. People rating it negatively because they don't have root and don't understand that apps can't just magically do stuff that requires root without root, are idiots. Especially when it's an app made by a famous developer for root apps.

  4. Chris Vydas-avatar

    Requires root, waste of time. Should say this at/in the introduction, the very first line at the very least. Root not even mentioned in 'about this app', regardless, in the title would be better. Is it so difficult to type (root) after the name!? Judging by the developers responses I would say this is intentional. Well then, you'll find playstore reviewers finding out the way I did, hard pressed to award anything but 1 star. Enjoy.

  5. Berke Tekin-avatar

    Great power comes with great responsibility. Servicely is a powerful tool that can prolong your SoT, and probably will break your apps functionality if you misuse or overuse it. Be careful. I would like to see an widget that shows if servicely is running in background since I disable the persistant notification,sometimes app gets killed in background.(Actually same for naptime would be great) Besides this app is great. Ads can be turned on, such an elegant move. Thanks Franco

  6. Estaniel Sadie-avatar

    I don't think this app is 100% working, even if I restricted like for example, my Instagram, it still is indeed running all of it services in the background. Same on my other social media app like facebook and WhatsApp. I've donated to the dev and they gave me false hope.

  7. Zero Two-avatar

    Amazing app. I have just one issue. Can you disable the Swipe Between Pages? With the new Q Gesture Navigation it's easy to accidentally swipe between pages and it's annoying when you are searching for a Service in All Services and accidentally swipe to running Services and have to Scroll all the Way down again. And perhaps a way to revert the changes in case of a Bootloop? Maybe a Recovery Flashable ZIP to revert all the Disabled Services.

  8. Ricky-avatar

    When I restart my phone, the app loses all the settings. I have to set each app to not run in the background again. Tried reinstalling, same issue. Running MIUI 11 Android 10. Have donated too and this is not what I expected.

  9. Matthew Tull-avatar

    Hi, Franco. Bro, I'm confused. I gave a donation for this app. before there were no full page ads, now there are. I have a few devices, are they not all covered? Now I just noticed that naptime is doing the same thing.

  10. Arjun G-avatar

    Great app, helps monitor the services running on Rooted phones. It improved my battery life. Reduced 1* as I am not able to restore services that I disabled using the app. Currently, I'm not able to enable certain Google Play services after disabling them. Please fix this

  11. Daniel Ahadpour-avatar

    Daniel Ahadpour


    I wish there was a stats button just like naptime also a possibility to hold on an app name and press for eg "ignore" to you won't see it in the list.

  12. nzxtcorsairoptiplex-avatar



    it is a good app, but it refreshes the app list every time you want to disable an app from running in the background or check settings that you've set for apps. why not let users manually refresh the app list to reduce loading times?

  13. Shariar Rahman-avatar

    Used to be a great app. now the settings don't persist anymore.

  14. Josh Farley-avatar

    Better than Greenify! I used Greenify for year's along with a app called Service Disabler but Servicely let's you disable both apps and service's all in one app! Definitely a must have app to save battery life on Android.

    been using this app for a while and it really improves battery consumption of apps. simple and easy to use no recket science 👍

  16. Mor-avatar

    Great app. Please fix the back navigation from tabs to main screen

  17. James J-avatar

    Very easy to use and really improves battery life.

    Hi, great app. But some of my other applications cease after installing this. How can I fix that?

    just to speedup app setup could you maybe have a add recommended apps to sleep option, apps voted by users go on list

    This is the best app in it's kind. Also, a developer so savage yet kind was kinda out of expectations. Nice work Franco! (if I'm right in spelling it).

  24. Yusuf Khalid-avatar

    Great new overhaul and update. Much appreciated!

  25. Jesse Black-avatar

    Maybe theres something im not doing with this app but after using it and uninstalling force doze from fdroid which is foss, the battery went down to 50% in 2 hours. After uninstalling this app and putting it back on,the battery is at 73% about 5 hours later. I paid for this app and it did nothing. And while using this app the battery monitor had even more apps than usual reading higher battery percentage. WTH Battery manager,force doze, autokiller,greenify worked fine. This made it worse.

  26. Andy Williams-avatar

    I used Franco kernels back in the LG Optimus days (well, I kang'd from Franco since he had a 500) and his on the n4 and n5. A few years later and I see what he's worked on since and found Servicely. quickly bought for the services and receiver control. Not as friendly as MyAndroidTools by Wang Qi but his got kicked off of the store last year. Since it's Franco I'm sure it will keep this on the store. I mainly use it to block 3rd party ad, analytic, referral svcs & receivers

  27. Pavel Mironov-avatar

    Nice app, I believe. There's n-teenth time I trying to install it, but stuck on the ROOTed Phone REQUIRED, hidden in the description. I'll keep the one 🌟 untill that info appeared at title or in the short description on the first page, the same as other respectful apps do.

  28. Abid Ashhar-avatar

    I need refund by money back because app crashes & its crashes launcher. So please refund it back! I want my refund back!

  29. Christopher Caldwell-avatar

    Christopher Caldwell


    Rating this app for one star because this doesn't work without "root." In all seriousness, I haven't gotten a chance to use this app at all considering I'm not root. When I opened the app I was met with "please don't rate this app one star." I feel bad that the developer is terrified of unjustified reviews so I gave it 5 stars. What I can say though is I wish the word root was somewhere in the title that's a little misleading to store it within the description. TL;DR this app requires root. D:

    New adaptive icon looks good. (Lol i miss clicked the last star)

  31. Craig Ippolito-avatar

    A fantastic tool to help increase battery life and assist with keeping services down when the device is down. A definite must have for the advanced user and a real benefit to the Android world.

  32. Alonso García-avatar

    For whatever odd reason, whenever I have Servicely enabled, tap to wake feature through Franco Kernel doesn't wake up the phone. And neither does lifting phone. It even struggles to open using the fingerprint scanner. . . it takes a good 5-10 seconds for the screen to turn on. I haven't disabled any services or crucial Google apps. This is on a Nexus 6P on Oreo 8.1.

  33. Zfk Zfk-avatar

    Good app. I have few problems, firstly many disabled services from Google Play Services are active after reboot. It would be great that we can search services by full name, for example to list all apps that have analitics service and disable it that way. It would be great to have more features like standby for system apps and disable activities in apps, for example adactivity, thanks.

  34. Anurag Goswami-avatar

    This is the first app to which I've allowed showing me ads. Reason is clear. This app isn't an adware it shows you ads in a decent way. But I must be given an option to choose between full-screen or banner ads as in the very few apps available over here. At last this app is nice and works as intended.

  35. Jorim Lavador-avatar

    Great app. Thanks!

  36. fangky sugiarto-avatar

    fangky sugiarto


    Please make this app support for unrooted phones By using adb maybe

  37. Tony Stewart-avatar

    Fantastic program, thank you Francisco! Everyone else, ideally you should be rooted. So spend a few minutes learning about this program and how it works before giving a lame review, because you are clueless, and do not know the actual purpose of the app. This app is ten times more usable than the plethora of popular battery saving aka: eye candy apps that actually do nothing.

  38. Askme Please-avatar

    Yet another outstanding piece of actual art.

  39. Arthur Silva-avatar

    This is a fantastic battery saving solution for rooted users on Oreo. Pair it with NapTime as the deadly duo for eliminating parasitic battery draining activities on your device. This does require quite a bit of very detailed user configuration, most of which is not for the faint of heart, non-technical or just lazy people. It would be ideal if between Servicely and Naptime, one of tham provided the ability to create a Home screen icon to turn off the screen and immediately activate Doze.

  40. brian tan-avatar

    This app function is similar to doze. It works and save battery draining when device off screen. However, it could be better to make it save battery when device in use. For those who don't read or know nothing about root, do not comment. As root is the only way to access your device system and make the apps works.

    Dev. first of all i was looking for such an app that can cut services. great app. But the app has a big bug. I' ve cut some of apps services all was ok. Somehow #servicely got uninstalled. but when i re-installed servicely it Won't give me any option to re-enable service that it cut berfore. please fix this. I use #app_ops. which cut app permission. even after uninstall, app permissions still cut. but if i reinstall #app_ops it will show which permission i cut before with it. please fix it.

  42. Kevin Knight-avatar

    Great app from a great developer.

  43. Nigel Stephens-avatar

    Great app. but be very careful, it's powerful enough to brick your phone if you disable certain core android services. I speak from experience, having had to wipe and reset my phone to be able to use it again...

  44. Bill-avatar

    Hmm, I'm not sure this app is actually doing anything noticeable on my Android9 phone. There is no log or notification or any form of signal indicating that its done anything when the screen goes off. It doesnt actually ForceStop an app, so what exactly does it do to the app? And i notice ALL my apps are shown in the list of 'Running Apps', even when i manually Force Stop an app & refresh the list of 'Running Apps' its still included (and i rechecked to verify that it was still Force Stopped).

  45. Teri Elmore-avatar

    Exactly what I needed, does what it's supposed to, easily & reliably. The ads can be turned off for free (that's nice of the dev), but I find it useful so it's well worth buying the dev a coffee.

  46. James Oh-avatar

    My device is already rooted. Was using it initially. Now it say no root access and closed and my phone is now all messed up. Edit: Thank you for your reply. I rewiped and reflashed my rom and start anew. Before I couldn't get any notification, as all apps were put to sleep.

  47. Alexandria-avatar

    You should really consider using intent firewall instead of pm disable. I've never had a crash with app components disabled via IFW but do with pm and your app

  48. Afif Yoga-avatar

    Force close when acces all services

  49. A Google user-avatar

    Exemplary battery maintenance and management app. Proud to pay for Francisco's apps, he is my favourite Android developer ⭐ Takes the time to explain each function in his apps and provides a great range of features. Thank you! Regards from 🇦🇺

    App is Great But One Little Suggestion : In Apps Tab, You can Include Checkbox so That People can Check all The apps at One time and Disable Wakelock Permission, Force sleep rather than Selecting One By One app and Do Both The Things Individually. Great App Thank You.

  51. Shyam Vora-avatar

    I use franco kernel, fk kernel manager, servicely,naptime with pixel experience on poco f1. Nyc apps . keep it up bro

  52. Jean Stewart-avatar

    This app is amazing. Huge improvement in battery life. If you don't know what this program does don't install it. Thanks to the amazing developer. One of the best!

  53. S.R. Aichinger-avatar

    I like the app, but it keeps showing wake locks being denied or granted when in fact it's the other way around. I'm not sure what the issue is.

  54. Ernesto Colina-avatar

    It was working before now it says that it needs root access. What ? Now the author doesn't want to fix this app ? Really disappointing. And yes, for the author's attitude, it deserves 1 star.

  58. Kiilluminatii-avatar

    Man, the thing with the Ads is just so humble. I'll leave the Ads on. Thanks.
