    Hi all,

    Does anyone know a good app that can reboot the phone? I found one on the market but it did not have great feedback.

    i think the only apps to reboot the phone are for rooted phones, no?

    but yeah, if you're rooted, i say quick boot as well.

    How about Fast Reboot? I have never used it, but I have heard it is pretty good for non-rooted phones.

    +1, I love switch pro, plus it does a lot more than just reboot your phone

    If your phone is not rooted then Reboot is the way to go. It simulates a reboot and frees up a ton of memory. If your rooted then get switch pro.

    Any apps to just turn off the phone? If I can schedule an app to turn off the phone at 5am it will bump charge itself. I am rooted btw.

    Use tasker, you can schedule your phone to do just about anything.I have been using using it for a couple days and the options are almost endless and out works great. This is my new favorite app.

    *edit* sorry I thought I had seen this option but I just looked and couldn't find shutdown phone.

    No problem. I was hoping to find a simple solution to bump charging.

    I am satisfied with Fast Reboot. Seems to be fast and gives my Dinc a little more pep without doing a full reset.
