App Tamer
Description

April 6, 2021

App Tamer 2.6.2 corrects a few critical user interface issues and offers a workaround for an uncommon system problem.

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 2.6.2

  • Fixed a performance issue that could cause App Tamer itself to use more CPU than it should.
  • The default window size for App Tamer's window has been restored so it's the correct size at first launch.
  • Resize cursors will correctly appear when you hover over the edges of App Tamer's window, showing that it can be resized.
  • A bug was fixed that could result in App Tamer’s process list showing truncated names for apps and processes, or no names at all.
  • App Tamer now shows the Spotlight Engine process in the Highest CPU Processes list, rather than hiding it as an "essential system process".
  • There's a new, experimental feature that can be used to kill specific processes if they periodically “run away” (they suddenly start using crazy amounts of CPU time).

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!
