Automatically Running Apps After Rebooting Android Phone


Published onMarch 15, 2012

Soft reboots can be quite irritating, most especially if you have tons of apps running in the background. Wouldn’t it be nice to see Google+, Twitter, or Facebook launch automatically after your phone reboots so that you can live your online social life before you head on to more serious business?

Restarting applications after a reboot can take time, and as far as time is concerned, nobody wants to start all over by launching social networking apps one after the other.

An application called Auto Start is here to help you in autorestarting your favorite apps in one go. The application is simple to use, as it lets you pick one app that you’d like to be launched automatically as soon as your phone finishes rebooting.  (Yeah, only one app, unfortunately.)

Any application can be picked.  Your favorite social networking app, a task killer app, a file explorer app, an ebook reader, or perhaps your favorite game–almost any app from your library can be auto-restarted.

Auto Start works perfectly on both rooted and non-rooted Android devices.

Most Android device manufacturers ship their phones with bloatware and crapware that autostart when you turn on your device.  Why can’t you have the same freedom?  With Auto Start app, you can.  Just decide what app you want to start automatically.

Auto Start features a minimalistic user interface without the clutter of fancy colors and hues. A single switch sits in the app’s main screen.  You can also select your autostart application from the main screen.

The app currently allows autostarting only third-party, non-stock (non-preloaded) Android apps.  This simply means that Auto Start won’t work with your phone’s stock gallery, SMS messaging app, calendar, or music player app.

After selecting your autostart app and switching the Auto Start toggle to “On”, simply reboot your phone and check whether your selected app is automatically launched.

If you have a specific application that you want to be launched in a flash after rebooting your phone, then Auto Start is definitely the right choice to get you started. Download and install the Auto Start app free from Google Play Store.
