Review SuperSU

Brandon Girod
9.7Excellent
Allows temporary unroot, keeps a lot of apps that request root access
The material themed UIs could offer more color options
SuperSU for Android is an access management tool for your device. If you read that and had no idea what I was talking about then chances are this app isn't for you. In a nutshell, it allows you to manage root access to apps and files all throughout the system on your phone, and comes with a huge list of features that simply makes it the gold standard.
I've personally been using this app for as long as I can remember having access to it. One important thing to note is that if you don't have root access to your phone then you will essentially have no use for this app.
The app’s UI has always been lacking a bit, but it’s a powerful tool that vastly prefers function over form. Like many similar apps, you download this app for its features, not its aesthetics. That said, the UI has been updated and it’s a lot less cluttered than it used to be. This makes it easy to understand what you're doing. Most users will only need to open the app to install and update binaries, though.
A few of the other great features the app has is the ability to grant root access to apps that will ask you every time you open the app, this way you don’t have to keep granting it permission. It keeps a log of every time an app asks for root permission, and lets you know how it’s accessing it. Another perk is that you can enable the app to run during boot, which means you can use if you encountered a situation where you can only access your phone in recovery mode.
SuperSU is probably the best root access management tool on the Play Store right now. There are plenty of other good ones, but this one is unique in that it just works. I've played around with others before and had issues updating binaries, or even installing them. Once I downloaded this app, I never worried about any of that stuff again.
