"A must have for all serious Mac users"

Superb application to manage your processor needs.


Nothing to mention.


We are so used to Default Folder that we take it for granted that it's the only software that Jon Gotow cares about and will hopefully support for many years to come. Then "App Tamer" a nifty utility that injects power into our Macs by reducing their consumption appears out of the blue and revolutionizes how we use the processing power of our computers. I've tried many utilities that allow me to activate or deactivate the process of my running applications but have always found them clumsy and hard to manage. It's simply unthinkable to go to a menu to stop those superfluous applications from running just to return there a few seconds later because you have forgotten a tiny detail and need to consult the program again. Well, "App Tamer" just does that in a less painful and more intuitive way. Once you launch it for the first time it sits silently in the background and magically turns on and off the processes that are no longer needed. Once you switch to a dormant application let's say by clicking on its window it wakes up like magic without the need for any further intervention. If you use a laptop with no access to a power source you'll appreciate every second of that extra power "App Tamer" has so meticulously accumulated for you and if you are use a computer in office you'll surely benefit from the extra speed that you gain by using applications one at a time and only when they are needed. I can't recommend this application enough. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)
