Talking [APP] App Timer Pro [Updated: 7/12/12]



This app is a also available on the Play store. but I've decided to release it here for free.

YOU MUST BE ROOTED TO USE THIS APP

This application uses root permission to kill an app and its associated processes. You can easily set a time for an app to be killed with the option of audio fade out (ex. listening to music while falling asleep: you can set the time from now or a specific time for the music app to be killed. Optional feature to fade the volume out before the app gets killed). App also contains a threshold killing option (set the lowest amount of RAM in megabytes before process are killed), recurring killing (kill processes at set intervals), customized kill level (by importance), option to kill all but excluded or simply kill the ones you've selected, all completely customizable and much more.

Features:
  • Kill any app at a time you choose with optional volume fade out.
  • Easily view which apps are active.
  • Monitors available memory.
  • Kill individual app process.
  • Uninstall app (send to the package manager).
  • Launch app.
  • Threshold monitoring and process killing.
  • Recurring processes killing.
  • Selected list (apps and processes to exclude).
  • Innovative help screens.
  • Backup and restore options.
  • Main list shows package name and other info.
  • Change category to show specific processes/apps.
  • Kill all option.
  • Widget that monitors available RAM and button to kill all.
  • Easy start and stop from the main menu.
  • Highly customizable settings.
  • Move to SD card enabled.
  • Hardware acceleration enabled for Android 3.0+.
Permissions:
  • Storage (modify/delete SD card contents) : this is used to backup and restore saved settings and lists to your SD card.
  • System tools (kill background processes) : the app doesn't just kill the app processes, it also kills the background ones (to be on the safe side).
*Note: this application will kill an app and its associated processes however, some apps will restart themselves.

If you feel like donating, please consider buying the paid version available on the play store here.

Looking Good. Thank you Dread.

I have the following feedback & requests and would be grateful for your consideration.

I am seeing duplications on the "Category Def" view. Is this expected?

Would it be possible to add an option to kill on screen off with a user configurable delay?

I use Facebook for Android and would like to be able to kill it and its processes when I am not actively using it.

Would it be possible to have seperate lists:
White List: Do not kill.
Black List: Kill

Would it be possible for the lists to have the same look as the initial views. i.e show icon and friendly name and package name, not just package name as it is now?

Thanks

Yes, seeing duplicates in the "Category Def" is normal. What you are seeing here are individual processes for an APK. For example; you can access hidden settings by selecting APNs in com.android.settings or Advanced Settings in the same apk. I added this category in case you can't find the app if it isn't launcher visible.

Here is more information on it (Intent.CATEGORY_DEFAULT): http://developer.android.com/referen...t/Intent.html#

Right now there isn't an option to kill on screen off with a user configurable delay, but it may be something I add in the future if there is enough demand for such a feature.

All the other things you have mentioned are indeed possible and something I may end up doing. I just found it super convenient (coding wise) to have just one list and let the user select if it is included or excluded.
