As you already know, Android incorporates a settings menu from which we can manage our preferences regarding the different applications installed. In turn, each application usually comes along with its own settings menu to access the configuration. But you've probably realized that in both cases we don't always have the freedom that we'd like: either because the operating system doesn't allow us or because the app has certain restrictions.
The preference manager for Android applications
If you've got a rooted smartphone or tablet, you can configure your apps however you want thanks to Preferences Manager. This application allows us to access the settings and edit them as we wish.
The settings are usually saved in an XML file in a private folder to which this application can access if we've got superuser permissions in order to read it, edit it or even remove those parameters that we don't want. We obviously recommend you to know what you're doing, especially in the case of applications that may affect the functioning of the operating system.
All in all, if you've got a rooted phone and enough knowledge to muck around with its settings, try downloading the APK of this preference manager for Android.
