App Tamer

September 30, 2019

App Tamer 2.4.9 refines its high-CPU-usage alerts and makes updating easier.

This version is a free update for App Tamer 2 users. Please note that if you still have App Tamer 1.x, this is a $7.95 paid upgrade if you purchased version 1.x before July 1, 2013.

What's new in version 2.4.9

  • App Tamer's high-CPU-usage alerts will no longer prevent you from typing in the frontmost app when they pop up.
  • High-CPU alerts will appear next to the menu bar even if App Tamer's icon is hidden by Bartender.
  • The appearance preferences now show more clearly that App Tamer will adapt to the current appearance (Light or Dark Mode) when running in Mojave and Catalina.
  • There is now an option to automatically download and install updates as they become available.

What a beautifully simple yet revolutionary App! But don't tell Apple that I can put off upgrading my Macbooks for another year ;)

It's "just working". Thank you so much. Love the product. Love the support.

A) the user interface is completely intuitive, B) it seems to work perfectly and instantaneously, and C) I did independent confirmation with my usual tool (top from the command line) and astonishingly, Safari was sitting there firmly fixed at 0 %CPU. That is awesome!!! I am absolutely going to be telling everyone I know to go buy this immediately!
