    I activated App Ops after reading an article about it on another site. It's a nice feature. I'm trying to strike the right balance with it for optimum battery life and just wondered if anyone else has used it or am I just late to the party?

    No? Really? It's gets pretty deep into the system without rooting. Tons of toggles. Tons.

    It's built into 4.3. No one has used it? It's not a third party app.

    It's accessible via Nova launcher.

    Heres the link to the article that I found. It's not fishy at all. It's legit.

    In Nova> long press home screen> shortcuts> activities> settings> App Ops> makes a shortcut on your home screen. Click on it and side scroll through the menus. Click on each item for toggles on/off for various activities.

    Perhaps that is the reason it kept freezing my phone. I don't use any launcher besides the stock.

    That's entirely possible, although I don't know if any other launcher has the same menu hierarchy,

    Just wanna point out the fact that Hangouts has the option to receive SMS/MMS if you go into App Ops. It says never used but still.

    Good catch! I think that's in prep for the next Hangout update.

    Good tip. Here's some related information. I may experiment more with Nova again over the holidays to see what AppOps is all about.

    Glad that app ops allows more permission control without root.
    I've restricted a good majority of apps requiring too many access and have not seen any crashes or errors.

    I'm curious how the location toggle works. I understand you would need it for location based services but I don't want it tagging my location in some instances say in a message or a photo, so how can you work out how the location toggle is being used?

    On mine, there is a location toggle for each app that uses it. I set the toggles for individual apps to be able to use location services. Is this what you mean?
