Those who like to control what they own will likely want to root ( jailbreak ) their Android smartphone. Once it is free of the carrier’s control, it will need some tools to make it more useful. Those tools are called apps. Read on to learn more about five apps for your rooted Android.
Getting your liberty on is usually a good thing if you can handle it. A smartphone is a powerful device and Android has plenty of options available for those who like to explore. One way to see all the options is to root or “jailbreak” the Android system. This allows the user to have more speed, backup data easier, keep track of files and more.
The first app for your rooted Android is Cache Mate. This app allows the user to view internal storage, clean up unneeded files and save memory space. It comes with a widget and features the ability to clear the cache from all apps with one click. It comes in a free version and a paid version. The paid version reasonable. It is all of one dollar.
Another app for a jailbroken Android is called “Titanium Backup”. This is an app that recovers ( restores ) the smartphone to a state in the past. It is also called a backup system. It can backup ( or restore ) regular apps and protected apps. It can also restore system settings. The market links in apps are returned thanks to “Titanium Backup”. If the rooted smartphone has more than fifty apps running on it, this is a “must have” app to keep them managed. The free version is not time-limited and the pro version can be had for $5.99 dollars.
MetaMorph Pro is an app for a rooted Android that augments the way your screen looks. The menus can be changed in color as well as highlights. Changing the way you interact with your smartphone is the name of the game for Metamorph Pro. Think of the name; “morph” and you will get a better idea of what will happen with this app. A free version of Metamorph Pro is available and seems to be about as good as the paid rendering. The paid version costs three dollars.
An interesting app called “Spare Parts” is another rooted-Android app with special abilities. It enables ( shows ) some menus that are not normally visible on Android. It is an app that will allow a user to track battery usage and change font sizes. Battery usage statistics can be tracked across apps. It is created at a good price; free. The bad news is that it comes with ads. Perhaps another app can be found for that ?
The last app for your rooted Android is “Autokiller”. This is a task killer that makes it easy to keep things tweaked and running the way a user wants. It has a free and a paid version. It shows all the apps currently running and fine tunes the way memory is used inside programs. All this results in a faster running smartphone. The paid version has no ads.
Modding your Android smartphone can be rewarding and can save time, since the smartphone will run they way the user wants, not just Google or Verizon or whatever carrier wants. Enjoy your new liberty with these five apps for your rooted Android.
