New features include:

  • App Tamer can now be set to quit applications after they’ve been idle in the background for a certain amount of time
  • Improved management of CPU usage for apps that have multiple sub-processes, like web browsers and Spotlight
  • When you turn on Time Machine Acceleration, App Tamer warns you if you have settings that are at cross purposes
  • App Tamer’s own CPU usage has been reduced

 

App Tamer’s unique AutoStop capability automatically slows down or pauses applications when you switch away from them, restarting them when you return to the app, freeing your CPU, reducing power consumption.

 

App Tamer will operate on any Mac running macOS 10.8 or higher, and is free to try for 15 days. A license is available for $14.95. The update is free for users who purchased App Tamer 2.x or bought App Tamer 1.x after July 1, 2013. For those that purchased a license before that date, the upgrade is $7.95 (USD).
