    "Another one of these trash battery apps like any other. This app is as useless as the apps that used to turn your screen white and call it a "flashlight". If people would think for a minute, just one minute or even ten seconds then they would notice that everything these apps tell you is common sense. Every one of these apps lower the brightness of your phone, tells you to turn off bluetooth/location services, and closes programs and that's all. Slam a billion advertisements and have extra pop ups for your other trash apps that do absolutely nothing and you're getting free money while polluting the app store, woo!"

It is super customizeable and you would be surprised how many things are using up power on your device that you were not aware of. Some of my friends say it creates a frozen screen though. I personally never had a problem."
