Allow only approved apps to start
« on: August 10, 2016, 03:29:03 PM »
I may be old school, but, I only want apps I start to run on my phone. I do not want all these bells and whistles and 14-15 unwanted apps running.. phone, messaging, facebook, mail are sufficient most of the time. How do I keep this other crap from starting?

There are basically two ways:
1. Or your phone manufacturer include this option in the operational system (like Asus Zenfone).
2. Or you need to root your phone allowing that one app interferes/manage the others (the ones which are automatically running). I won't discuss here the benefits and the dangers of rooting  ;)
