Default Looking for app to keep other apps from being killed

Hi All,

Most people are looking for apps to kill other apps when they are running - I'm actually looking for the opposite. Phone keeps killing apps to free up some RAM here and there, and some of the apps to not restart themselves. Are there any good apps out there that can be used to monitor specific apps and restart them if they are killed by the system?

Thanks!

Or Xposed plus the app settings module. You can force apps to stay in memory so they won't be killed.

That's perfect, I already have Xposed and the App Settings module. Thanks a ton! Would this be the "insistent notification" option?

Nope. The resident checkbox is what you want. http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...12-15-t2437377

I'm not sure about Rom Toolbox Lite but the Pro version lets you add apps to the exclude list for task manager so those apps don't get killed.

Thanks, I think I have the pro of that app purchased from a while ago. Will give that one a try as well.
