Any good startup manager app for Android?

I searched and found that there are some out there, but which one is considered good, any idea?

I found that ES Task Manager has a startup manager, is it good?

Unfortunately, I did not find much programs to disable from that list http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/frown.gif .. wish I could cut down on some in the startup list. Is YouTube required to startup? I read somewhere that do not disable YouTube app for security reasons... strange.

Also, is there any system file from where the startup list is controlled? I have worked on Linux before, and that time I had enough knowledge of various boot-up files, startup files, system files and so on. But, after many years, I forgot.

Also, are there terminal apps present for Android... where you can run commands on the terminal, like it can be done on Linux?

I use gemini app manager, to manage apps, it can do startups as well, it is free
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gmappmgr&hl=en (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.seasmind.android.gmappmgr&hl=en)

I disable most but the needed apps on startup :S like I do windows... I keep phone/google systems/calendar/texting. Any 3rd pt app I disable, unless I know what it is for, like wallpaper/clock widget

Sorry, I had to edit out the commercial app link you posted. Let's keep it to free apps only please http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/smile.gif.

Well, I use ES File Explorer, and it has got an app manager in it. Also, via ES Task Manager integration, startup manager functionality is also there. That way, I think it's comparable to Gemini App Manager.

You should definitely install SystemCleanup (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.SystemCleanup.Inteks.org).

If you want to disable Autostarts / Autoruns just launch the app, go to "Apps", tap on the app you want to edit and then select "Disable Autoruns" from the pop-up menu, voilą! http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

This is a very powerful, yet surprisingly very easy to handle app with a simple interface that gathers a bunch of features for app(s) maintenance and cleaning within any rooted Android device. Just make sure you measure twice and cut once when using it.

Ah great IO.Hazard! I knew you will come up with something http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/wink.gif

BTW, how do you measure the startup manager in ES Task Manager?

Please forgive me, but am I correct that your phone has to be rooted in order to use this app?

Is there a similar app for un-rooted phones?

ES Task Manager is a great tool for unrooted devices, but if you have a rooted one there are some apps (such as the one I suggested to you) that will do a better job.

Yep, SystemCleaner works only on rooted devices.

I'm afraid there is not a similar app for non-rooted phones and if you find one, chances are it is some kind of placebo. That is not due to a lack of good free apps, it is just because non-rooted devices are harder to control and tweak. As I said to Anupam, ES Task Manager is the closest you can get to a good, sensible app management on non-rooted phones and tablets.
