Oh well... I'm rather surprised something like this doesn't exist as an app already. I'd make one if I could!

Like when I have lets say 50 apps frozen, then when I enable all I suddenly have 50 more apps in my app drawer and I can't keep a shortcut to the frozen app in a separate folder on homescreen either because they get deleted once you freeze an app.
The way I wanted was a single click shortcut that would unfreeze the app, launch it and then freeze it back when I'm done or screen turns off.

This way I can keep all such shortcuts in a single folder on my homescreen too, and they won't get deleted as they point to the monitor app.

I don't think you understand....App Quarantine is not Titanium backup, it's tap and it unfreezes the single app. Tap again and it refreezes it and just it. It doesn't defrost 50 apps and it's a widget on the screen so you don't have to launch any other apps like titanium to manage it. (It doesn't freeze it back without a tap). It's an App Quarantine widget that looks like the app shortcut icon and doesn't disappear when the app is frozen

Wow, THANK YOU! I think I had checked out App Quarantine earlier, but didn't see its powerful widget feature. I took it as just another app freeze/unfreeze application.
The single app widget with its locked/unlocked overlay is great. It even launches the unfrozen app with that single click just like I wanted. Its perfect!

@rootSU Like I said, I'm surprised something like this doesn't exist, turns out it does and I just had to find it, with rancur3p1c's help


Consider this question answered.
