I have just uploaded v1.10 to the Play store, which should start updating you over the next few hours. The impatient can grab the APK from XDA here:

There has been a lot more response to this little app than I had expected, as its just a little thing I primarily wrote for my own use. I've gone through a lot of the commentary on various sites, and this update should cover most of the reasonable requests, excluding primarily the true white/blacklist, which may or may not be coming in the future.

The age limit is now a slider with more options on the shorter end. Where 12 hours was previously the shortest option, now 1, 2, 3, and 6 hours have been added.

I've also added the option to make a 'Clear All' button show up in the recents view. It doesn't work on all devices (yet), though.

Another often spotted request was to do something about Google search results (from the search box and Google Now). Interestingly, on some devices this shows up a single card, and on other devices each search shows up as a separate card. If you "Ok Google" a lot, the latter can quickly become messy. Additionally, these results are often tied to the process of the launcher, and thus are always in the running state, until you reboot. This means the basic Recently options won't clear them by default. For this an option was added that allows you to limit the number of these cards that remain listed. I would advise against setting it to none and choose a low number instead, but it's up to you.

Personally I also hate seeing Settings in recents, as I always use another path to go there. So I added an option to remove that as well.

I've also added options to kill tasks and documents (browser tabs, search results, etc) when they become older than the set age limit. This is a fairly extreme measure to take, and I would generally advise against it, but there have been so many requests for this that I'll let you decide for yourself to use it or not.

Last but not least, Recently will no longer show up in recents itself, nor attempt to remove stale tasks that belong to the home, foreground or recents processes.


  • Age limit is now a slider, with more (shorter) options

  • Added option to show a clear all button (doesn't work on all devices)

  • Added option to limit Google Search results in recents

  • Added option to hide Settings app

  • Added option to force remove stale tasks

  • Added option to force remove stale documents

  • The app itself no longer shows up in recents

  • Never remove the home, recents or foreground tasks

+Chainfire​ can you possibly please get the recent apps 'view' back how it looks in 4.4.*? I really don't like the overview that Google made.

Chainfire commented on 2015-03-13 at 12:45:

Not without replacing it altogether, no.

Dmitriy Briskin commented on 2015-03-13 at 12:52:

Can you make it shoot rainbows and cure cancer?

mario s commented on 2015-03-13 at 13:06:

+Chainfire​ you are the best!

All you works! ☺?

Christophe S commented on 2015-03-13 at 13:07:

Thank you for the hard work you make. Keep on!!

Christoph Grubits commented on 2015-03-13 at 13:22:

+Chainfire​ This is just awesome! Thank you! I think it's quite cool that you allow using the pro features without buying it. Always makes me feel so bad that I have to buy the pro to clear my conscience. You deserve it anyway! :)

Jarrod Worlitz commented on 2015-03-13 at 13:31:

+Chainfire​ can you buy me a pony?

prashant jadhav commented on 2015-03-13 at 14:17:

Thanks, Clear all button works on my nexus 4 & 7 with slimpop ROM

pyler sm commented on 2015-03-13 at 14:21:

+Chainfire maybe Xposed module to replace it with your version of recent view?

Chainfire commented on 2015-03-13 at 14:53:

+pyler sm I don't do Xposed modules

Chris Holmes commented on 2015-03-13 at 15:07:

Some day +Chainfire​, you are going to stop being the shit!!! I hope I am not around for that day. This is a great little app.

Dominique Buzon commented on 2015-03-13 at 15:10:

Thank. You. For. Your. WORK!!!

Matthew Scott commented on 2015-03-13 at 17:36:

i got a tab Pro 8.4 SMT-320 and i would like  to know how to reset the knox warranty 

Jarrod Worlitz commented on 2015-03-13 at 18:35:

This app is so subtly brilliant, the new update is why I just blindly go pro when +Chainfire​ puts out an app, because it just keeps getting better. Even without the pony, which maybe I can find an Xposed module for...

Alessandro Ibi commented on 2015-03-13 at 19:48:

Not root atm, will try after 5.1 upgrade, looks to me we all needed this! Thanks +Chainfire

Daniel Johansson commented on 2015-03-13 at 20:41:

Amazing app +Chainfire

dave evade commented on 2015-03-13 at 22:01:

thank you very much for all of your apps +Chainfire​ . I have a question though, if it's already implemented in a rom, and I install it, will it cause problems? I'm pretty sure the rom I'm using now doesn't have it (moar 6.1) but I have no way of knowing for sure. maybe in a future release you can add some kind of signature to the recent Windows so we know if it is or isn't implemented out of the box in a rom.

+Martin Žebula nag CM about that, not me.

+dave evade no it won't create an issue... just don't enable the feature (it's disabled by default)

+Chainfire please help me... 

I was trying to root my htc one m7 and i was following this video at youtube by zedomax, called "how to root htc One!":


I used the su file he posted(v1.3).. it didnt work, then i used the update that was posted on the comments(v1.9) and same thing.

my SU is called eu.chainfire.supersu.main.... and it has android logo insted of SU logo, when I open it it says "SuperSU has stopped unexpectedly. An error report will be sent to HTC to help us improve our products...

After that i installed SU from playstore 

and now the icon appears! however when i open it it says : (let me try translate to english) : without binary SU installed, and SU can't install them. there is a problem! 

if you just upgraded to android 5.0 you need to reroot manualy - check the main forums for your phone! 

after that i went and found the latest version of SU, (2.46) and flashed it! 

now my phone does not pass the htc One tm beats audio screen.... how do I solve this? ( i can reboot it by pressing 10seconds the power button, but after reboot it gets stuck in the same spot and i can also enter fastboot and recovery buy pressing powerbutton and volume down, but nothing beside that...)
