    Jerry Killian Published date: October 24, 2017

    I totally love this app. It was one of the first apps I installed when I got my S8+ and immediately bought the add on. Verizon is notorious for bloatware, and Samsung has their fair share on here too. I'm able to pick what apps and services that I want running or available. The export feature is a great plus, too. I give 5 stars, but you guy deserve more. Full Review

    Great App!!!! So easy to use! Gets rid of everything you don't use & makes it so much easier to manage. I LOVE The fact that I can disable factory data reset which Is a fabulous feature!!!! Now, at least, if my phone ever gets lost or stolen, i have chance of getting it since the factory data reset can't be forced :) Full Review

    It worked perfectly! NO MORE BIXBY!! So simple even I could use it without a hitch! Just follow the directions. The patch for the app fix even comes up during installation via Play Store, didn't cost extra and installs with a prompt from the app. Took me less than a minute to get rid of that friggin Bixby! Buy it!!! Full Review

    When you are ready to customise your own device this is the ultimate app. I was about to glue the Bixby button up its that bad, maybe in time samsung will admit they got it wrong when they took drugs and dreamt it up and I hope they will make it user designated friendly but till then hell no.

    Terrific app for breaking free of crapware! Let's you immediately see the results of what you removed (disabled). Also includes brief description and quick search for something you might not be sure of. Easy enough to navigate with a palatable UI. Haven't had to interact with dev yet but sounds like they are on top of it if you have any problems. Makes for a 5 star porno in MY book! Thanks Dev! Full Review

    Working great on my old Samsung Note 4. Disabled S Health , Gear, and Smart Setup. This old phone does not have active phone service so you can do away with the Activation Setup message from Verizon every time you reboot. Full Review

    This app is absolutely perfect for doing everything it claims it can do. The developers made an amazingly easy to use UI and this app's capabilities are incredible, especially for all phones that aren't rooted!!! I 100% recommend this app for anyone who knows what they're doing and wants to free up space on their phone, or manage apps and packages (even individual app services). This app does it all! It displays all bloatware, manually installed apps, and all system COMs and services. BE CAREFUL disabling certain services though, you may seriously damage your phone's system UI; **so it's best to backup your entire phone before starting to use this app!** My favorite feature is the ability to "Google it!" when you click on any of the listed pkgs and services, in case you want to understand exactly what it is that you're about to disable or erase!

    I love this app so far. It allows me to do things that I should be able to do by default. Being able to disable app badges and Bixby is amazing. I do wish you could backup the default profile you have to tinker with, but that's a minor nitpick. Full Review

    I love the app! It works pretty well. There is one thing I would like to address though. If you have a Samsung device, leave all Knox apps enabled. Comment and rating edited due to my problem of not finding the "Disable Bloatware" button. Full Review

    The only reason I bought this app was to disable Gear VR and stopping it from draining my battery. I was skeptical if it would work without root but it did so I'm giving it full 5 stars!! Full Review

    Amended my review. It took a while to get this to work. But finally got it working after spending some time trying to Google why ADB could not see my device. Maybe add a section for people who encounter this where to locate and update driver in device manager. Other than that the app does what it says it does. 3 stars because of ease of use. Full Review

    For those of you, who, like me, purchased this app for some free stuff from Samsung Themes Store, don't bother and don't waste your money. It does not work for this ( theme keeps revertong to the original one). I had nothing annoying which i couldn't get rid off, but i said "let's disable bloatware if i bought it". Wooooow, 1% improvement in battery, 50 mb in memory (which is nothing). So, if you ask me, great marketing, poor product. Full Review

    Disabled bixby after they have him a female voice and started jabbering at me at work about using voice to unlock device. This app shut her down perfectly. Thanks! Full Review

    I got my Galaxy S8 direct from Samsung, so it wasn't loaded with unwanted carrier apps, but there were still some things I didn't need or want pre-installed. Various launchers of course can hide those apps, but I see no reason to leave them running, consuming resources. Anyway, I've found that this works very well. Quick and easy to install and configure.

    I'm impressed what this app can do to suppress Samsung's annoying bloatware without the hassle of rooting. Will rate 5 stars when I can move both BK and BK add-on to the SD card. Full Review

    Got this to disable Samsung Game Tools after a recent update made it impossible to disable. Ended up working, and got rid of a lot of other junk too, freeing up about 300MB of RAM. Great app, worth the purchase. Full Review

    This app has cured most of the problems, or at least lessened them, on my new Galaxy Note 8. Gone is the Samsung rotware, such as Bixby, the annoying Samsung Keyboard (that ALWAYS replaced my Google keyboard whenever I attached my phone to a hardware keyboard) and the broken, unresponsive mess that is "Dex". Now, if only this could fix the squashed, mirrored screen on my monitor, give me back hardware menu buttons and make the mouse pointer scroll the browser screen up and down, and the Note 8 would almost be as good as the Note 2 was! Cheers! Full Review

    Lorenzo Juarez Published date: December 4, 2017

    App works good - I can disable any app I choose with no problem at all. The only problem is... my "Device Backup" (by Google) gets permanently turned OFF after I activate this app using ADB on my 'Google Pixel 2 XL' - this is found under "Settings -> System -> Backup". I hope there is a way to fix this in the near future, "Device Backup" is a MUST in case something goes wrong & it's too bad this app totally cripples it after activation. Update: Yes, I am logged back in with my Google Account. I sent a support email to the address listed in the description here & one through the "Feedback" option under BK Disabler's 3-dot menu... still no response though. Full Review
