Try use Servicely.

No, I don't want to automatically kill services/apps.... just the foreground app (the open, on-screen app) - FC when I've finished with it.

Description of Servicely: "if that service or app is running on the foreground this app won't kill it.". So that's no good.

Whitelist
Is it possible to whitelist an app from being removed from recent list? It would really help if this feature is implemented.

Go to "Cleaner Settings" -> "Whitelist apps from cleaning" (or similar, I am using the German version, so I do not know the exact phrases for other versions).

Open Recent App Cleaner. Choose the second menu entry (Clean preferences). In the submenu, choose again the second menu entry (Exclude Apps). This one should be responsible for excluding apps from being cleaned.

Ah got it but unfortunately I don't have the donate version. Danke.

I use a combination of greenify to hibernate apps which slow down system and those which auto wake up along with this app to auto clean the recent app list.

I wonder if the recent app list consumes battery/CPU. I know for sure it consumes memory depending on how many apps are in the list.

Android is very capable of doing RAM management by itself. If RAM is low, it kicks out apps which are currently using RAM, but are not running in the foreground. The big deal about this behaviour is that apps can restart themself and thus go back into RAM. But don't worry, you might stop using Recent App Cleaner (RAC) if you use Greenify, which hibernates apps until the user opens them manually.

but greenify does not clear the recent app list that's why I'm using RAC. I'm not sure though if the app list consumes battery or CPU. Any idea? If it does not consume any battery then I'd not use it but I don't see a way to find out.
