In the past, we learned how to lock the Android screen orientation for individual apps to disable the auto-rotate feature. However, this only addressed the app orientation. What about customizing other features such as volume or screen timeout for specific apps?

While browsing XDA threads, I found an app called PerApp, which allows you to configure settings for each installed app on your device. Currently, these settings include orientation, screen timeout, volume boost, and, for rooted Android users, CPU speed control.

There are other apps like Tasker that can control these aspects, but they are more complicated to set up and often come with a higher price tag.

PerrApp for Android

PerApp isn’t available on the Play Store yet, but you can download the early release APK from Google Developers. Simply transfer the APK file to your phone and disable your security settings for third-party apps. On the first launch, PerApp will scan and display all the apps installed on your phone.

Before activating the app, configure it first. Configure the default app settings, which will be shared with all apps by default. Tap on any app to change its settings if you don’t want it to follow the defaults.

You can set app orientation, volume boost, and screen timeout for all installed apps on your device. While screen orientation and timeout are self-explanatory, volume boost enhances the app’s output. It’s similar to playing a video on VLC with the volume above 100%. Use volume boost sparingly, especially when listening to songs with earphones, as excessive boosting may damage the device speakers.

Save Battery on Rooted Device

If you have a rooted Android phone, you can extend app features to control the minimum and maximum CPU frequency. With a powerful phone, you can reduce the maximum CPU frequency by default and configure apps like games and media players to increase the clock frequency before launching.

The app is in early development and we may see additional features before it hits the Play Store. Users with root access may appreciate the battery-saving idea, giving non-rooted users another reason to consider rooting their Android device.
