App Tamer automatically pauses applications to deliver more efficient CPU usage and increased battery life. Some Mac applications, especially web browsers, continue running tasks or animations even when they're supposed to be idle in the background. This can consume valuable processing power and reduce battery life. App Tamer's unique AutoStop capability automatically pauses these applications when you switch away from them, and then restarts them when you click back to them. This frees your CPU and reduces power consumption. App Tamer includes an attractive and clear user interface for managing your running applications. It shows the average percentage of your processor(s) being used by each app, and graphically displays a history of CPU usage. You can easily enable AutoStop for any application, as well as change its processing priority in OS X. App Tamer comes pre-configured to automatically pause Safari, Firefox and Chrome when they're in the background. AutoStopping other applications is just a mouse click away.

What is new in this release:

  • Further improved efficiency on El Capitan and Sierra.
  • Fixed a launch-time bug that caused crashes on macOS 10.9.
  • Made contextual menus (when clicking on processes in App Tamer) behave consistently.

What is new in version 2.1:

  • Compatible with El Capitan.
  • Refined the logic that detects when App Tamer is having trouble monitoring Chrome's download activity.
  • The AppleScript command for turning autostop on and off now returns the old setting as its result.
  • Updated support for NetNewsWire, the App Store app, Go for Facebook, Leaf, Reeder and Fluid browsers.
  • Improved "Show in Finder" so that it works with system daemons and other non-application processes.

What is new in version 2.0.5:

  • If your Mac has more than four processor cores, you'll now get a dialog offering to change the cpu history graph to a logarithmic scale. This mode shows much more detail when cpu usage is a lower percentage of total capacity (which is very common because you're rarely using all cpu cores on 8 and 16 core Macs).
  • Fixed problems with 64-bit Safari plugins not being stopped and started correctly.
  • App Tamer now shows more helpful error messages when it can't connect to the internet to validate your license number.
  • When installing its helper application, App Tamer will try to fix permission errors for you when it encounters them.
  • When App Tamer reenables itself after being turned off for a period of time, it now displays a notification in Notification Center on Mac OS 10.8+ .
  • Corrected a bug that would mistakenly hide both stopped and slowed apps when the "Hide applications when they are stopped" setting was turned on in your preferences. Now App Tamer doesn't hide apps that have just been slowed down.
  • Improved the appearance of the CPU history graph.

What is new in version 2.0.4:

App Tamer has been updated to fully support Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite.

Limitations:

15-day trial
