How do startup managers work? Are they worth having installed?

I was watching a video on "best apps of 2014" on youtube, and a startup manager was one of them.

I downloaded it and tried it out with skype, rebooted, skype wasnt under the running apps, barely anything was actually. i thought it worked with the skype, until i rebooted the phone again wtih nothing selected to not start at startup, and all the same - few - visible processes were running. I was hoping this would help me disable some of the rarely used but always running background processes. for example, a game that i use and enjoy, but not every day and would like it to run upon my request. thats what i thought startup manager would do.

am i wrong? was skype a bad thing to try with it first?
