Greenify Your Android.

Many of the Android phone users have the problem of battery life not lasting over about 6 hours of the day. The main culprit behind this problem is a lot of processes running in the background. Many of you would have observed that as you install more and more applications on your device, the phone becomes slow and battery life becomes very less. This is because nearly each application that you install has a background service that keeps running continuously on your device. Developer Oasis Feng has come out with a solution for this problem.
Greenify, this application is not actually a task-killer, it just hibernates those apps by disabling all background services of the app. The apps that are hibernated by Greenify can still be used if you want to, and you can still share data to them. From the lines of the developer himself, "Greenify help you identify and put the bad behaving apps into hibernation when you are not using them, stop them from battery leeching, memory hogging and stealthy running, in an elegant and unique way! They could do nothing without your explicit launch, while still have full functionality when running in foreground. Like what iOS apps act!"
But for this convenience, Greenify needs a background persistent "Cleaner" service, which is designed with an average RAM footprint at 2M in total, and nearly zero CPU and battery consumption.
You need to be aware that if you Greenify an app, as I told earlier, you lose all background functionality of the app during hibernation except the time when you are using the app. Background functionalities like SMS Reception, Alarms, Push Messages, Notifications, and many more. So be careful before greenifying any app that may bring you an important message or notification.
