Without a doubt five stars, all the way. Been using this app for months now, and everytime my ram is being eaten up or my phone becomes a bit sluggish i just hit the widget(thank you for including that by the way) on my home screen and boom...everything is all good again. I really appreciate you devs making this for us. Thank you. 5/5
Positive review no other big app can beat this by anonym
I have been ising this from the day I was using gingerbread. It still does the same thing in kitkat today. I expect more apps from this developer. 5/5

Positive review ALMOST PERFECT by anonym
Great app smart quick and easy.I have been using this from last april on my lg optimus 2x and later on on my galaxy s 3.but as soon as my galaxy got updated to jellybean the app caused it to slow down and have lags.please fix it and i will rate 5 stars!! 4/5
Positive review Fast, Easy, Efficient by anonym
@PaulBritPhoto :: I've been using this since my old 1.5 Moto Cliq, and it's STILL great on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (despite the fact the S3 has a task manager & app "reboot" of its own). Stops stubborn startup process in their tracks but has NEVER caused problems or made anything fail "that I needed for phone operation." It's small in footprint, powerful and I love it. And I never noticed there was a "pro" version .. I'll be purchasing that today :-) #Cheers 5/5
Negative review Cannot turn on Wifi after installing!!! by anonym
Hey, why cannot I turn on my wifi after installing this app? Wifi error just after in installed this app.. I have already uninstalled it and installed wifi fixer. Still wifi doesn't work. What's wrong with that????? Help! 1/5
Negative review @Marcus Leng - Seriously!? by anonym
You are and idiot if you think that manually killing apps improves performance and even more of an idiot for believing that reboots are more helpful. Android has an entire subsystem called LowMemKiller that handles memory and shuts apps down (cleanly) when it's needed. You're proposing that you're smarter than Android developers when you clearly lack even the most basic understanding of how Android works. To you and everyone else using this, free memory is wasted memory. If you're not using g ram then apps must be loaded from nand when they could be cached. Free ram doesn't improve performance. More ram (to be used) DOES. Think of it this way: when you close apps to free ram, you're actually doing your best to minimise the amount of ram being used. What's the point of having that ram then? You might as well have less ram. All of you who believe this has "sped up your device", or "made it less laggy" are imagining things. PS I build kernels for Android and have been since the the O.G. Droid (Zeus Droid project) so I know what I'm talking about. 1/5
Negative review Snake oil by anonym
The positive reviews are surely mass hallucination. I'd like to see objective tests proving that this app or others like it actually speed up any process or make devices "snappier". Very occasionally there's some benefit to be had from killing an app that is misbehaving, but regularly simulating a reboot can do nothing useful, any more than turning off your car's ignition every 10 miles is going to make it run better. Freeing up memory is equally pointless, since Android is designed to actually use memory, not leave it empty. Believe me, Google didn't put a big flaw in the OS to be fixed by 3rd-part apps! 1/5
Positive review This fixed my phone by anonym
I have a droid x2. It often had a problem with unresponsive dialer and/ or keyboard. This app very quickly fix's the problem with one tap instead of full reboot. 5/5
Positive review Great app for those who can READ.. by anonym
I feel sorry for these developers because they have to deal with complete morons all of the time, which could easily cause them to lose faith in humanity over time. For example.."1 star because it doesn't even reboot my phone!" So apparently it's the developers fault that you're incapable of reading? Makes perfect sense. You idiots should just go get an iPhone because it was specifically designed with people like you in mind. Thank you dev for this awesome and FREE app! 5/5
Positive review Great for solving my Nexus 10 soft rebooting problems by anonym
I have this on all of my android gadgets but I had forgotten putting this on my Nexus 10. After updating Android to 4.4.2 on N10 I finally got the "soft rebooting problems" after a few days using it while reading PDFs. Installed Fast Reboot and problem was solved. Thanks for the great app. 5/5
Positive review Invaluable by anonym
Better than any task killer I have tried, whenever my phone starts to lag, I hit this and runs great, no problems with instability or further lag from android a auto-reopening closed apps. Basically perfect design, awesome! 5/5
Positive review Reclaims memory leaks nicely by anonym
I initially thought Android was supposed to be better at memory management compared to Windows OSes (since its roots is Linux), but no operating system is 100% perfect. This works better at freeing RAM than any task killer I've tried! I have this app on both my rooted HTC Sensation XE and Flyer P510e tablet. Thanks! 5/5
Positive review One of the most useful apps I've ever installed! by anonym
The first time i used it the entire cycle took literally a couple of second and my crummy old bionic was running 10x faster. Went from running jumpy and laggy to fast and smooth. I'm amazed. 5/5
Positive review Can't imagine not having it by anonym
Every time I flash a new rom I always install this app. When things get bogged down just leave a shortcut on your home screen to quickly press it. Saves me from restarting my g2x all the time. 5/5
Positive review Android / Apple Support&Questions review by anonym
This app is good. Thats it. People moan about alot of stuff on here it works as it should your looking for something the app is designed for and review it does what its says..ive never given 5* 5/5
Positive review Excellent by anonym
So far the most effective way to kill unused apps and free some memories. Compared it to other app killers and this gets the job done in a single click. Me gusta, keep it up! 5 stars. 5/5
Positive review Almost perfect...A suggestion for the developer by anonym
This is a great little app. I just have one suggestion. I would like to see a confirmation before the reboot takes place. I have pressed this by accident on several occasions and it would be nice to confirm that you actually want to reboot, by use of a pop-up confirmation box. Just a simple 'Reboot Now?' OK or Cancel, would make this app perfection. Keep up the good work and thank you. 4/5
Positive review Useful by anonym
This is quite a useful app, it often helps to smooth out performance on my Nexus 7 (2012) when it gets a little laggy. Some options would be nice though, perhaps the ability to ignore certain apps or services. 4/5
Positive review Best app I ever downloaded by anonym
My phone has 512mb of ram. I used to miss calls or be unable to text anyone for several minutes, because the phone would go nonresponsive for a while when low on memory. I've tried task killers, removing bloatware, overclocking, tweaking swap settings... and this does more for my phone's responsiveness than five other useful speedup apps combined! 5/5
Positive review It works by anonym
I have lots of apps and my mobile was starting to lag so I gave fast reboot ago and wow it works my mobile is running faster smoother its great thanks for this app! 4/5
Positive review Simple and magnificent! by anonym
This app is a godsend for all low and mid-range android phones. Just keep it on your home screen and tap whenever your phone gets laggy. 5 stars! 5/5
Positive review Works great! by anonym
When your phone starts lagging and running slow, use this app, and it will automatically refresh your phone. I just wish I could view a full list of stuff it closed, but it's still fine. 5/5
Positive review Sped my phone up immediately! by anonym
I have an s3 and it home button lag is unreal. This fixed it immediately! 5/5
Positive review very handy by anonym
Very useful on my tablet, which does get slow from time to time. Running this app kills off lots of stuff that I didn't want running (and don't know why they are running). Developer very helpful too, and very fast responses to emails. 5/5
Positive review Impressed! by anonym
Been using this app for two weeks now & despite my scepticism, it works really well. Frees up my phone's memory a treat! Would recommend this to any Android user. (Samsung Galaxy W) 5/5
Positive review Must have by anonym
If your device it's running low of memory, or lag, try this app. Fast reboot make it smooth when you have a lot of apps opened, or just keep sync. Just open the app and done, you have free memory. Totally recommended. 5/5
Positive review Excellento by anonym
This apps do what it said to be. Of course after it reboot, the memory will be hogged down by the apps in the phone because that is how android system works. But it gives a relief to your system after operating a heavy processes and help the system recover the memory faster. If you guys have a laptop with a windows XP, you will get what i mean ;) 5/5
Positive review 11000 5 Star Review. You know this must be good. by anonym
Task killers never really work and in order to properly close recently opened apps (ie Adobe Reader) especially after heavy usage, I would manual restart my phone. Now i don't have to anymore! And it saves me from long pressing my power button! One tap and that's all it takes! It works similarly to clearing of ram via task manager. 5/5
Positive review My hero on ICS by anonym
Fills in the missing piece for up time on my updated Pantech Burst. Had it tweaked to run smooth but would still get crashy after a day without a reboot, unlike Gingerbread. Set Llama(free automation app I already use for many other things) to trigger with screen off. No more crashiness. 5/5
Positive review Fantastic! Clears Memory In A Swish by anonym
Although I have hard-rooted many phones in the past, my current Galaxy S 3 is merely soft-rooted to the extent available. This application is absolutely fantastic, it allows me to clear all the RAM and the built up refuse in my phone in mere moments. At times it appeared that no time past at all. Great job to the developers, keep up the great work! Best Wishes -Jameson (P.S. - if you can, donate! Perhaps more than once.) 5/5
Positive review AMAZING! by anonym
I didn't think this app could be as great as it is! Very happy! I was using another app for task killing, but this one takes the cake! Great job- 5 stars all the way! I'm never uninstalling.. Ever. 5/5
Positive review Great, but need an option to confirm.. by anonym
I dont know if it just a placebo effect or else, but since I use this app, I can feel the difference, such a great app. But I'll give 5 stars if it has a confirmation before rebooting.. 4/5
Negative review Won't simulate a reboot enough. by anonym
I have link2sd, and this didn't simulate a reboot enough to remount my second partition like link2sd does on reboot. I removed my sd card physically from my phone, so no apps that were linked using link2sd were appearing any longer after I re-inserted my sd card. This app didn't help though unfortunetly, I thought that I could get a simulation of a reboot so I wouldn't have to actually reboot.. so that link2sd would work again. Saddening.. ._. 2/5
Positive review Excellent app work by anonym
For some seconds it kills the all app's and system just like the system paused for some fraction seconds then the phone run again.This makes my phone faster especially those who've low ram or using multiapps and crashing down this app is the best. 5/5
Positive review Just Best! by anonym
Best app deals with memory.. forget any memory booster this small piece of art does it all. I always had low RAM problems with my 290MB RAM Galaxy mini but now it's past. 5x* 5/5
Negative review Does what it says, but... by anonym
It kills apps, but then the same memory-hog apps just start up again and bog the phone down. That is of absolutely no use at all. Something needs to stop apps from starting up in the first place, unless I manually open them. Haven't found anything like that yet. 1/5
