Hi everybody! I am not sure if this is first time question or not? I did not find it. So, lets write it:

I am sick off that e.g. Situations app can not automatiocally close Android apps (i.e. Whatsapp) when certain time period ends. Could it be possible to let Situations app or something else automatised function to close eg. that Whatsapp? I should be very grateful for that.

That would be a feature request to Pastilli Labs!

See their contact info at

Yes, I can tell you that Pastilli Labs could allready do this! The code is ready, but Jolla does not allow to use it in Situations App. Why? I am wondering that very much. After adding that function I will feel my Jolla phone /+ tablet later very superior indeed.

Have you tried issueing a shell command with your situation? There's an option to issue it at the end of the situation.

I haven't tried it either way...

Yes, there is option at the end of each time period to stop eg. Whatsapp, But .... with Android app it needs programming with Terminal, creating a sub programm, thus having a suitable code editor etc etc. I am a happy Jolla user :) :), thus I suppose that each apps should have their own programms and codes which work. I am not a professional coder. You all have to persuade Jolla to accept the fact that also Androip apps have to have some rights to stop the operation of the running app at the end. That is a hot potato at the moment.
