App Tamer 2.0 adds new UI, ability to limit apps to certain amount of CPU
St. Clair Software's App Tamer has had its second version released, offering a new user interface and additional features. App Tamer controls the amount of CPU allocation applications can access on one's Mac computer, with an 'AutoStop' function that stops an application when the user switches away from directly using it, and then restarting it when it is revisited. App Tamer v2.0 features a revamped user interface, visualizing all functions directly on the menubar. The App Tamer icon displays current CPU usage and task management upon being clicked, and hovering over an app reveals its CPU usage in a graphical format.
App Tamer 2's central new feature is the addition of AutoLimit, providing users with the choice to restrict the amount of CPU an app can use while running in the background. Limiting an app's usage facilitates running more applications than one could with this previous version of App Tamer. Also included in the update are miscellaneous software improvements, such as a streamlined application engine and more efficient energy usage. Users who purchased App Tamer v1.x on or after July 1, 2013 can upgrade to App Tamer 2.0 for free; those who purchased prior to July 1, 2013 can upgrade to the newest version for $8. App Tamer 2.0 for new users is priced at $18, with all downloads available through St. Clair's online store.
