    I have used this for a couple months. On 4.3 and 4.4.2-4. It has performed exactly as needed. I set it to whitelist all except those checked. Works beautifully. Thank you for a well written and simple app.

    This app is the best of its kind i have 50 mb data per day allowance and this app saves me saves battery also cause other apps eats data even when your not using them. It could be awesome if it also enable data or wifi when you enter specific app but thats a different case im using another app for that but either way love this app recommended even for beginers.

    I like how I can limit what apps can access Wi-Fi and data, especially since I don't use plans with data. This saves me money, but it also saves me time: less apps scrambling for Wi-Fi means a quicker response time on my phone. Great product and easy to use!
