When Lollipop became active, there was a big change to the devices “recents” list – which is Android parlance for your “overview” or “multitask” or “recent apps” list, whatever you may call it.

This is where Chainfire’s “Recently” app comes in.

Chainfire details root issues in Android 5.0, gives quick fix
