This is just a template to demonstrate that an app can be killed (Force Stopped to be exact) without root, through its app info settings page. You just need to edit the second block (Start app) and replace the data URI with the package name of your app. Don't delete the "package:" prefix, it is necessary. You might also need to edit or redo the Click actions depending on your system, especially if you're not using English language or if your manufacturer uses an alternative settings app. Don't worry if the record overlay doesn't show up when you're in the settings page, it still captures the actions. The first Click block clicks the "Force Stop" button and the second one clicks "OK" on the confirmation dialogue. Have fun!
