St. Clair Software has delivered a 2.1 update for App Tamer, its Mac utility that manages applications to deliver more efficient CPU usage, increased battery life and quieter operation.
App Tamer’s AutoStop capability automatically slows down or pauses applications when you switch away from them, and then restarts them when you click back to them. Version 2.1 delivers compatibility with El Capitan and improves support for a number of applications.
App Tamer requires Mac OS X 10.7 or higher. A demo is available at the St. Clair website (http://tinyurl.com/24y36gu). A license to continue using it after the trial period is $14.95. If you bought App Tamer 2.0 this update is free. If you purchased App Tamer 1.x after July 1, 2013, the update is also free. If you purchased your license before that date you can upgrade for $7.95.
