Agree with some of the others - after the March 15th release, my phone couldn't keep powered up with the battery drain, plus it would hobble the processing on the phone. (Typing on the keyboard caused would result in 10-20 seconds (SECONDS!) of lockup.)

Removing ShutApp solved these issues - so it was definitely that app.

Every time I see an article like this (and I see them a lot) it fills me with sadness.

It makes me sad for a couple of reasons, the first being that it just underscores how little people paid attention in school. (or have forgotten) The story of Eratosthenes, for instance, is taught at least twice in high school: once in science class, and once in geometry. It's a basic use case for both the position of the sun relative to the surface of the earth, and how to best compute the circumference of a sphere.

The second reason is that these articles are usually presented as either "Look at this brand new thing that we just discovered about old timey stuff!" or, even more depressingly, "Look! Someone was smart back when people were stupid!" The assumption that, just because there were no smartphones, game stations or cars 500, 1000 or 5000 years ago that the human mind must have been small and unsophisticated is maddening.

Thank you #businessinsider for once again stooping to click bait.

This is brilliant. Sad and depressing, but brilliant. Kudos @thedailyshow - #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain

Hoping this will make it thru to someone at Contacts+ --- there's no email address on their website.

I have been a Contacts+ user for quite a while - I found it very useful and the interface was convenient.

A few years ago I bought a Sony Xperia Z2, and after transferring my apps to this new phone, I immediately began to experience problems with regards to slow performance on the phone and screen freezes/lockups lasting 1-3 seconds.

I chalked this up to the Sony implementation of Android - so I rooted that phone and put Ressurection Remix (an open source android variant) on the device. All of the problems went away.

In December of 2015, I bought myself the newest Xperia, the Sony Xperia Z5. After transferring everything over (can you see where this is heading?) I, once again, experienced lag on the OS, stuttering screens, and freezes/lockups lasting 1-3 seconds.

This time I didn't just want to bail on the Sony OS (android version 5.1.1), especially since (a) I had this problem before and (b) no one else on the internet was reporting this issue. I downloaded a few apps to monitor CPU usage and internet usage... top of the charts? Contacts+

After deleting Contacts+, clearing the cache and rebooting...voila: zero lag, no stutter, and the screen is as smooth as butter.

It's important to note that I never had these issues on any of my Nexus devices with Contacts+. Conclusion: There is something about Contacts+ and the Sony implementation of Android that seriously hate each other.... more Contacts+ for me until they figure out the issue. The Xperia is too nice a phone to abandon, and the Sony implementation of Android is really quite nice.

Sorry guys....I'm bailing for a while...

This is pretty amazing, and a long overdue use of this technology. I am sure this is going to come as a rude shock to everyone up on stage.... Candidates can't just make s**t up on the spot and hope no one noticed (or forgets days later when they are called on it) any longer.....
