Thank you for your feedback,
the next update will open previous screen on pressing back.
and right now you can go to home screen from left navigation menu when you are at setting screen.

Thank you,
Yogesh Dama

Quick feedback: Pressing 'back' while in the settings screen closes the app instead of returning to the previous screen, and there is no other way to return to the previous screen while in settings

Can you add something to launch the Google Play Services from appdrawer or a widget,perhaps.
You should know GPS is a necessary evil.Its tiresome to go into Settings app in 5.+.
Tried with some activities but not able to get the main activity.
Thank to your app SuperSU is more accesible now.
Correct me if I am wrong in any of these:)

Its depends !!

Hello,
1st thanks to using my app,
about activities of other apps, some time it wont show you activities of some apps if they have marked as private and not exported in apps. so may be that is the reason you are not able to see for EAS app.

Thank you,
Yogesh Dama

I read the review of this app and it sounded great. I installed it from the play store.
Unfortunately the relentless popups offering me something and the continuous banner adds stopped me from configuring it to do anything useful, so I uninstalled it again.
I understand you have to try and make something from your product, but on this occasion for me it was overwhelming.
I am just giving some feedback, I know it seems negative, but it's not what I intended, I am just passing on my impression.
How can you improve if no one takes the time to tell you what they think?
Keep up the good work.

Downloaded the APK, but didn't install yet. If there are ads, I will skip. I'd rather contribute money to you than deal with ads. When you offer an ad-free paid version I'll come check it out.

This app sounds great, too bad it's not available in the TV leanback play store.
I was searching for such an app the other day, but I couldn't find it.
Please make it compatible with Android TV, thank you!

When sideloading apks on an Android TV (like Philips Smart TV for example), apps' launcher icons are not leanback compatible so those sideloaded apps do not show up in the default leanback launcher (you need to browse to settings-->installed apps).
So in order for them to show up, it would be great if you could create a leanback compatible shortcut to those apps.

For the moment I'm using HALauncher to access those "handheld" apps. If you could make leanback compatible shortcuts, that launcher would become obsolete.

Thank you!
