App Tamer 2.4.2 Update Brings Interface Improvements and Bug Fixes

St. Clair Software has released a free update to its App Tamer utility for macOS. App Tamer 2.4.2 features a new floating-window mode to keep performance information close at hand, provides better keyboard-based navigation, and offers several bug fixes and other improvements.


App Tamer 2.4.2 Update Brings Interface Improvements and Bug Fixes


The changes in version 2.4.2 include:
* An option to keep App Tamer’s window floating above other windows when it’s torn from the menu bar
* A fix for a bug in Mojave that prevented App Tamer from waking background apps for scroll wheel activity or scrolling gestures
* Improved keyboard traversal of the process lists in App Tamer’s window, enabling type-to-select and selection using the arrow keys
* A correction for a bug that could result in App Tamer not keeping Safari awake while it was downloading a file
* Elimination of UI glitches that occurred when the process list updated while you were using it

App Tamer’s unique AutoStop capability automatically slows down or pauses¬† 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 comes pre-configured to automatically manage Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Spotlight, Time Machine, Word and many other apps when they’re in the background. And customizing it for other applications is just a mouse click away.

App Tamer will operate on any Macintosh running macOS 10.8 or higher, and is free to try for 15 days. A license to continue using it after the trial period is $14.95 (USD). This 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).
