App Tamer tames applications that are chewing up excessive CPU time and battery life on your Mac. Its unique “AutoStop” feature will stop an application when you switch away from it, and then automatically restart it when you click back to it.
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 could fail to get all information about some applications (such as their icons or process identifiers) while OS X was very busy. This could result in AutoStop not working with those applications until you quit and relaunched App Tamer.
- The menubar menu did not work correctly under Mac OS 10.5. This has been fixed.
