the app has improved greatly, its very usable now.

some suggestions/details:

app/usability:
1. the app is usable when it is not enabled, there should be a check on app launch if it is enabled in xposed.
2. some sort of loading indicator instead of just directly jumping into the batch edit category after a wait.
3. search for apps.
4. app filtering

2,3,4 are already implemented in xposed app settings, perhaps you could look at that code.


ui stuff:
1. all the activities except the main one should have menu items and the navigation action http://developer.android.com/guide/t...nbar.html#Home
2. the blocked apps/ apps with the particular permission should be sorted above the rest.
i'd say blocked apps->apps with permission but not blocked-> rest of them
3. scroll bar in batch edit
4. action bar spinners or a viewpager like the xposed app separating the batch edit and the list of all apps. (AB spinners would save space though)

these are suggestions, i love the app as it is,

Yes, else not each data type will be restricted.

First the most obvious: did you reboot? did you enable XPrivacy in the Xposed installer?
Which ROM do you use?
Do you see orange triangles if you start XPrivacy and browse apps?

Yes, I rebooted twice. I'm on TrickDroid 4.2.2 (sense based) on the HTC One. I do see the orange triangle on some apps when I open up Xprivacy but not on all (going into the different categories)

a have a request. The application is really great, but I would much rather like to get notification(and then I can open XPrivacy by just clicking on it) when new application is installed instead of just popping up. I hope you understand me

If you see orange triangles XPrivacy is in any case working.
Maybe your settings layout is different, so that XPrivacy cannot hook into it.
This is not a big problem, because you can access all settings from the app too.
You can do me a pleasure by sending a logcat, starting from the moment your device boots, so I may be able to figure out why this (not) happens.

Thanks for your feedback, gandhar.
Could you please create issues for these, so I can easily track things?

Loading apps in an async task + spinner has already been realized (will be in version 0.12).

Ok Thanks, I'll get a logcat for you later when I'm in front of my computer(I'm out to lunch right now)
