[prMac.com] Blacksburg, Virginia - St. Clair Software today is happy to announce an update to App Tamer, its Macintosh utility that automatically pauses applications to improve battery life and reduce CPU usage. Praised by both users and the press for its sophistication and ease of use, App Tamer makes it easy to conserve battery and CPU power. This update corrects an intermittent issue that could leave applications running when they should be paused.
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 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 1.2.1 includes these changes:
* App Tamer could fail to get all information about some applications (such as their icons and process identifiers) while OS X was very busy. This could result in AutoStop not working with those applications until you quit and relaunched App Tamer.
* App Tamer's system menu did not work correctly under Mac OS 10.5. This has been fixed.
* Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6 or 10.7 (Lion)
Pricing and Availability:
App Tamer 1.2.1 is a free update for registered users. It is $14.95 (USD) for Mac users who have not purchased it yet. Please see the St. Clair Software web site for a full change log, additional feature information and a free 15 day demo.
