Denver, Colorado - St. Clair Software is happy to announce the availability of a free update to its App Tamer utility for macOS. App Tamer 2.4 features a new option to quit idle applications, allows its CPU usage graph to be hidden, and offers several bug fixes and other improvements.
The changes in version 2.4 include:
* The CPU usage graph in App Tamer's window can now be turned off
* App Tamer can be set to hide an application after a certain amount of idle time
* Scroll wheel use is recognized as activity in an application even if the app is in the background
* A bug has been fixed that caused incorrect process throttling if the "Do not slow or stop apps if power is plugged in" option was turned on
* User interface issues have been corrected
More about App Tamer:
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, reducing battery life and producing heat that increases fan noise. App Tamer's unique AutoStop capability automatically slows down or 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 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.
Pricing and Availability:
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).
