Need another reason to root your Android? You just got one. An app called Servicely is making it easier than ever to customize your phone and optimize battery life – and it’s exclusively available for rooted Androids.
Servicely has actually been around for a while, but recent updates have made it more functional than ever. Android Authority recently did an excellent write-up on how to use the app to its full potential.
Obviously, you’ll need a rooted Android device to begin. If you haven’t already rooted, consider installing One Click Root and letting it do everything for you.
Next, you’ll need to install Servicely from the Google Play Store. The free version is more of a trial and comes with limited usage. If you want unlimited usage of the app, you’ll need to pay $2.20 for the Pro version (it’s available through an in-app purchase).
How to Save Battery Life Using Servicely
How exactly does Servicely save battery life? Surprisingly, it performs just one simple task: it prevents apps from running in the background. You select which apps you want to add to the “Hit List” and Servicely tells those apps to quietly shut themselves down when not in use.
To access this feature, just hit the button + Add a new app to the Hit-list.
Then, you can view a list of all your currently running processes and all your installed apps. Choose a few apps from the list and then hit the checkmark in the bottom right corner. Those apps are now on the hit-list and will be frozen from running in the background.
Before the app actually goes to work, however, you’ll need to make sure you look in the top right corner of the screen and toggle Servicely on.
Once you’ve done that, that’s it!
Obviously, Servicely isn’t the only app that comes with this kind of functionality. It’s basically the same thing as Amplify and Greenify.
However, with Servicely, you can also disable services completely if you really don’t want the app to run at all.
Once again, Servicely is exclusively available to rooted Android users. You can download it from here.
