Clone Apps (Dual Apps)

On the realme smartphone, the system UI allows to clone certain apps, such as Messenger, WhatsApp, Facebook and many more. When cloned, the app works completely independently from the original app. Therefore, in the case of dual-SIM devices, it is possible, for example, to run WhatsApp with two phone accounts/numbers.

Dual apps can be installed via the "App Cloner" feature in App management.

Force Stop an App

On the realme smartphone, there is a "Force stop" feature that should only be used when the application is no longer responsive, i.e. it has hung. "Force stop" stops the application just as it is known on a Windows PC with "End task".

The disadvantage of this function is that, among other things, the application can no longer save the data before it is closed. It is therefore possible that certain data is not saved or is saved incorrectly, so it is also possible that the application stops working afterwards (but this does not usually happen).

Android 11 | realme UI 2.0
Step 1: Tap on  Settings
Step 2: Tap on  App management
Step 3: Tap on  App list
Step 4: Choose an  App
Step 5: Tap on  Force stop
Step 6: Tap on  Force stop  to confirm
  1. Tap on Settings
  2. Tap on App management
  3. Tap on App list
  4. Choose an App
  5. Tap on Force stop
  6. Tap on Force stop to confirm
