    Your review, and the user reviews at the Google Play Store, cite Greenify as an excellent app for halting the operations of Background applications.
    Yet, to the common android user, Greenify is of no avail since it requires root access. Could you suggest an application that does the same or nearabouts without root access?

      I am not aware of such app for Android that wouldn't require root access. That said, there might be some. Ask it on MakeUseOf Answers, http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/
