How much storage battery and can expect to save a single app? Hermit is able to replace any resource-intensive application being a fairly lightweight application. This is an app that is running the Web version of another application, but it is also highly customization. This makes you forget those synchronizations that leave you data and also allows more granular permissions and customize your notifications. Let’s look in more detail in this application.
How it works Hermit
There are many alternatives to Facebook , but Hermit offers a supercharged version of the custom tabs Chrome, which means you need a website (that of Facebook, for example) to give a nice facelift, so that you will give the aspect of an application. An icon to the home screen is added and also this “Lite App” is displayed in your apps drawer (if any , of course). In essence, it behaves like a normal app, but without those additions or adjustments that are often unnecessary.
Hermit provides a decent library of sites for which you can create applications quickly, and each update more sites are added. However, you can create your own “Lite App” using any website. You can create, for example, a “Lite App” site Android Pit (subliminal advertising 2.0).
One of the main advantages of these “Lite Apps” are really light applications, so you save battery. The only space they occupy on your phone is occupying icons, ie, almost nothing. In fact, it occupies Hermit less than 1 MB of storage.
You can manually set the frequency of synchronizations for your “Lite Apps”, which can be with a frequency of five minutes to once a week. With this you could save enough battery because some apps (eg, Facebook) make your device wakes up frequently to check for notifications or updates, which would make your battery lasted considerably less.Even if you have set up synchronization with a frequency of five minutes, the app uses the Android API for saving battery, so that even in these conditions will spend less battery power than the official Facebook app.
Why not just use a shortcut to Chrome?
Hermit avoid using third-party cookies. For example, if you go to Facebook, there is no chance that track your activity in the browser. Thanks to this blocking activity tracking you win an extra privacy, plus it has more customization options.
What else does Hermit?
Not only you receive notifications of the “Lite Apps” you do, but you can also customize them beyond any official app or website. You can decide what you want icon appears in the notification bar, what sound you want to use, if you want to use one, and vibration pattern you want your smartphone use for notifications.
There are also options for automatic configuration Facebook and Twitter, which offer a one-touch settings that work well for most users, but, of course, manual configuration options are still available if you prefer.
You can also choose what permissions granted to each site, so you can enable or disable location permissions, photos and videos, cameras and microphones to your liking. If you decide to share a photo, video or taking them off location, they are activated for that purpose and then again turned off to return those permissions to the state in which you set.
Following the configuration section, Hermit lets you choose a combination of two color shades for your “Lite Apps”, so that it can be as beautiful or as ugly as you want.
What’s the trick?
There is no catch. It is, at least in my opinion, a great alternative to those applications that are made contortion or malice you may have installed. It depends on the use of each (and every smartphone battery), but not usually consume more than 1% battery using various “Lite Apps”. It’s a fairly fluid app and also you can set it to come under a single icon notifications from various news sites. It is a clean, consistent app uses less resources.
The free version allows you to have two “Lite Apps” with all its premium features, but if you pay a € 4.24, you can enjoy all you want with these characteristics. This means having custom themes, bookmarks, full-screen desktop mode and all granular permissions and privacy controls.
Developers are working hard to bring all user requests to the app and also can follow him on Reddit creator Hermit,chimbori , to find out what’s going on and you can ask any questions or suggestions for improvement.
