Introducing App Tamer - Tame your Apps: Free your CPU
September 17, 2010 in Utility
[prMac.com] Blacksburg, Virginia - St. Clair Software today is pleased to announce the availability of its latest Macintosh product, App Tamer. App Tamer gives you control over your applications so you can save battery and CPU power, and makes it easy and automatic.
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 and reduce battery life. App Tamer's unique AutoStop capability automatically 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 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 comes pre-configured to automatically pause Safari, Firefox and Chrome when they're in the background. AutoStopping other applications is just a mouse click away.
App Tamer will operate on any Macintosh running Mac OS X version 10.5 or higher. You can try App Tamer free for 15 days. A license to continue using it after the trial period is $14.95 (USD).
