I am just wondering if any of you have heard of it or have used it?

I was reading about laggy devices (mine has today i noticed - i shut it down every night, so i know its not like a PC where needing a restart is the issue).

Right now i just used my weather app since i dont use it often (but is useful wehn needed)...

But then i got to remembering about how i read before about ram, and that how if you close one thing, something else will just begin to take up the rams place.

so now im not sure if i should experiment with it or just delete it entirely?

Greenify force closes the apps that can't be killed

For eg. Facebook

Hence it doesn't run in background and saves ram
The other apps just close them but they can restart
But with Greenify they dont restart

So, what does it mean when it shows google play services like 4 times? it doesn't show many individual system apps (like Bluetooth for instance) that i can choose to only run when i want them to.

To Greenify system apps, you need to have the Donate key and the Xposed module.
