More on Xposed Settings

What does the following options mean:
Insistent notifications
Revoke permissions check box
- Resident
Makes the app less prone to be removed from memory when not active.
Example: Phone, Contacts, Mms apps. If you enable it for them, they should be very responsive pretty much all the time, as other apps will be freed instead of these ones when memory is required for something else you run

- Insistent notifications
Activates a flag that makes the sound associated with statusbar notifications for that app LOOP continuously. It won't stop, though, so use it carefully 

- Revoke permissions
Allows you to selectively deny one or more permissions that the package has declared to require and that it would normally get.
You can e.g. revoke the INTERNET permission and it won't be able to access the internet.
Note that this can make the apps FC in many situations, it all depends on how the app handles the lack of permissions. For INTERNET, some of the ad-based apps will just display something like "INTERNET permission missing" in the ad area but continue to work. Others will simply FC and you won't be able to revoke the permission.
The same applies to any other permission, this is just an example.
