The Google Play app for SuperSU is a super-user management tool that helps you control root permissions on your device once it is rooted and solve permission problems that are encountered in phone root management. You can think of it as giving administrator permission to the apps on your device.
The design is simple enough for anyone to understand and is also pleasing to the eye, so I give it a 4/5. The main SU window gives you three options: apps, logs, and settings. The main interface for granting apps permissions is a pop-up that shows the app name, type of access, permissions, logging and force user. On this pop-up, you can delete, accept or close the selected option. You can also customize the app and use different themes and icons.
I rate Functionality at a 4/5. The APK get enables to grant or deny root permissions to apps if and when you need them and also keeps a log of those permissions for you. A lot of times our devices are corrupted or malfunction, and we need to go back and check where the problem is. SuperSU will help manage permissions and keep track of the apps you’ve given root permissions to. You’ll also be able to monitor how frequently the app you have granted permissions accesses and uses the root.
With the APK, you can temporarily unroot your mobile device and troubleshoot your phone when it is trapped in boot loops. You can also unroot your phone in recovery mode which requires flashing your phone in CWM recovery and unlocking the phone in bootloader. With this latter option, you’ll need to get a recovery image and a SuperSU zip packet compatible with your Android mobile. SuperSU also supports CyanogenMod ROMS and also offers full color-coded command logging, with different color output for I/O errors. The latest version offers a bug fix for installation errors.
The Android app is free to get, and there are no in-app purchases. However, you can get a pro version of the same offering extended features at $3. SuperSU is an app for all Android devices running Android 2.3 and up, which is a great majority of gadgets. However, the app isn’t compatible with iOS.
Ease of Use
The app is quite easy to use, although new users may understand very little about rooting and granting Super User access. I’ll give it a 3/5 for this reason. The interface provides you with general direction as to what to do with on-screen prompts. Anyone can check the SuperSU website for guidance on how to use the app. The app rarely crashes, and there are frequent updates to counter any bugs.
