    Anyone else use this battery saver, the free version is no longer supported but the pro version is and I can say for sure that the reason why I got it and originally gave it a try does indeed really work and that's cpu/gpu/kernel control/throttling, when I turn on Powersave mode my phone slows down to a creeping halt.

    So I was wondering if anybody else used this, it's a really nice battery saver, with smart settings that adapt and learn your preferences.

    Is this for rooted devices? I assume I can use this on my G5 if I wanted to?
    I've not heard of that app. Was it in the PlayStore at one time?

    The free version used to be but the pro version supports LP and yes root is recommended, otherwise no kernel control and c/gpu automatic clocking then.

    This sounds a LOT like some Snake Oil from another infamous dev.....
    That & it hasn't been updated in 20 months.
    I'm calling 100% total B.S. on this app............

    The list of things the app claims it'll do for your phone is beyond ridiculous.
    If the dev hadn't gone overboard on that account,I'd probably at least load it up & take a look.
    However,the claims are just a bit much,akin to late-night infomercials.
    Besides,there aren't too many phones released in the last year or so that really need any tweaking to this extreme.
    Even the slower processor phones do decent,only limited by the components in the phone & less of a bad O/S.
    Start loading up the Crapware apps & Pirated content & all bets are off.............

    No longer supported and updated as previously stated:
    Updated
    August 8, 2014
    Version
    6.1.1

    Verses Pro Version 15.3.0

    Read above and original first post... I can't help that ya call B.S. if ya can't read a thread properly, but maybe a pair of glasses could.

    If it's what ya say it is, why was it featured on the XDA Portal? LoL!!

    Tell these guys that...
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1947559

    The dev states in the thread that he's stopped supporting the free version, but ya can download the pro version and try it for a few days I think, I bought it back when I had my note edge, nice research there buddy, kudo's to you! haha

    Don't see anything that mentions needing root??? Geezuz, ya really do need glasses don't you!!?!!?
    Taken from post #2 of the thread, I'm starting to doubt that you ever even read anything, furthermore, how else do ya suppose an app is supposed the control the c/gpu and kernel, magical android fairy dust? LoL:thumbsdowndroid:

    It's my party and ah well ya know the rest... Hey hey I wear glasses, so if anything I'm making fun of myself. I just hate when people are biased with no reason except assumption, especially when it's easy to just try something and give it a shot and if they were right, all they've got to do is uninstall a app, but nope not happening there, nor was their common sense on some points of root privileges, so by knocking that off the list of what he failed to comprehend I'd then say his point is moot and invalid.:thumbsupdroid:
