Managing unruly apps

The app manager shows a list of running apps, their size, CPU load, used memory, number of services and threads, and an option to kill the app or uninstall it.

Firewall for root

Restricted to people with rooted devices is the firewall, which can disable Internet access on a per-app basis, just like a desktop firewall. You can customize the firewall's settings for each app to work with Wi-Fi, 3G, or data roaming.

Privacy in-depth

Text message and call filtering are both available, along with a series of in-depth options. These include redirecting blocked calls to voice mail, or filtering based on a start and end time, or the day of the week. Outgoing calls can also be blocked, a clever tool so you can hand the phone over to a toddler without having to worry about annoying your contact list.
