What is App Tamer?

Some applications, particularly web browsers and older apps, continue running tasks or animating ads even when they're idle. That uses valuable processing (CPU) power, which leaves you with: -Less CPU power for the application you're using -Increased heat and fan noise -Reduced battery run-time

Find the culprits and get them under control. With App Tamer, you simply do this: -Launch App Tamer and click on its icon in your menubar -Click on an application that's using a lot of CPU -Tell App Tamer to slow or stop the app

App Tamer will automatically slow down or pause your applications whenever you're not using them, greatly reducing their CPU use.

App Tamer even comes pre-configured to automatically reduce the CPU and battery usage of Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, Spotlight, Time Machine, Photoshop, Illustrator, Word and many other applications.

Unlike some utilities that let you manually manage processes, App Tamer automatically handles the details for you. It slows or pauses an application when you switch away from it, then automatically restarts it when you start using it again. Just set it and forget it - App Tamer quietly saves battery and CPU power while you work (or play).

You choose which apps to manage. Automatically stop them when you're not using them, or just slow them down by running them on the M1 efficiency cores or limiting the amount of CPU they use.

App Tamer's preferences let you tune its behaviour to your needs, whether you're frugally conserving battery power or feeding every last CPU cycle to Final Cut Pro.

Recovering even a small percentage of your CPU time can translate into significant battery savings. Stopping an application that's consuming 5% of your CPU can translate into 20 or 30 minutes of additional battery runtime.
