The ability to prevent running background services was requested many times. App Cloner 1.4.16 will come with a new option ‘No background services’ that automatically stops running background services when exiting the cloned app. It also makes sure that no app services get restarted in the background. In case a service does get started, e.g. via an external event, it will be stopped immediately.
This should help to reduce resource and RAM usage, as well as battery consumption by apps not in use. You can view running background services in Developer options > Running services.
This option is not recommended for messaging apps as they rely on background services to receive messages and to show notifications.
Below an example of musical.ly’s background services, before and after enabling the option for the clone, freeing quite a reasonable amount of RAM memory.
