    I have two apps that I must manually start on each power on: "Call Filter" and "Phone Found". Surely there must be a program that allows you to START selected apps at power on. I know there are many apps that allow you to prevent and app from starting, but I have not seen one that allows you to start selected apps. [DROID X, 2.2, not rooted]

    The apps themselves should have a setting to auto-start at boot.

    Unfortunately, these two applications do not have an autostart option.

    This is not force start in the classic sense if the phrase but I would think if the phone is rooted you may be able to add them to the startup processes . Do not quote me on this but I personally do not like any apps starting up when I am rebooting the phone it gives faster reboot time.
