This is a homescreen replacement that has an Ultra Power Saving Mode for your phone to help you extend battery life when you are running out of charge. This launcher allows up-to 4 apps on the home-screen.
What this app does:
1. Kills all running apps and services.
2. Disables WiFi, Data.
3. Shows Missed Calls and Missed Messages.
Ultra Power Saving Mode:
4. OLED Mode for AMOLED devices.
5. Changes governor to Powersave mode. (requires ROOT Access)
6. Disables 2 cores of a Quad core phone. (requires ROOT Access)
7. Reboot during exit. (requires ROOT Access)
When your phone goes below 15% battery, the app shows alert to clear the defaults for your current launcher. After clearing, set SOS Launcher as the default homescreen, and the app would take care of the battery. Once you quit the app, it would clear itself as the default launcher and you can start using your favorite launcher back.
It's clearly misleading the users. If your launcher kills processes - it's not the same as S5 Ultra Power Save mode. Many services/apps will be re-spawned again due to nature of Android. S5's framework has special functions to PREVENT (not KILL) starting of non-white-listed processes which will ensure, only predefined processes will run at ANY moment. Also, S5 UPS will block internet access to many apps.
Thus, it's more complex methods than just killing the processes. Ultrapower Saving mode requires special functions in framework and cannot be implemented by application/launcher/service.
