comment Shell script to kill custom apps, run another app then restart killed apps?
Didn't work for me, but I believe it's a bug on my side. Will redownload later. Since it does what I'm asking for, I'm accepting this answer.

I created a test task (vibrate for 500ms) and it doesn't seem to do anything when I run it (by pressing the play like button)... Not sure if it's a bug or if I got it wrong.

Not quite. I'm not trying to avoid distractions, but to gain enough resources to run the game without lagging. Which worked fine for PES, the most demanding game I play on my android. :)

Also, gaming isn't exactly battery friendly, and killing some user apps does pay off on lower end devices. In my case, it nullifies the lag while playing PES.

I wouldn't be killing system services, only user apps such as: viber, whatsapp, SwiftKey, etc.

comment Shell script to kill custom apps, run another app then restart killed apps?
Thanks for the comment. What I basically want is some sort of "Game Mode", activated before launching a game, desactivated after exiting it. For example, I have some apps bulletproofed (e.g. keyboard, whatsapp, viber, etc) and it would be nice to kill them before launching the game and launch them again once I'm done.
