App Tamer 2.4.2 refines its user interface, fixes background scrolling.

This version is a free update for App Tamer 2 users. Please note that if you still have App Tamer 1.x, this is a $7.95 paid upgrade if you purchased version 1.x before July 1, 2013.

What's new in version 2.4.2

  • Added an option to keep App Tamer's window floating above other windows when it's torn from the menu bar.
  • Worked around a bug in Mojave that prevented App Tamer from waking background apps when you used a scroll wheel or gesture to scroll their windows without bringing them to the front.
  • Improved keyboard traversal of the process lists in App Tamer's window, enabling type-to-select and selection using the arrow keys.
  • Fixed a bug that could result in App Tamer not keeping Safari awake while it was downloading a file.
  • Corrected some UI glitches that occurred when the process list updated while you were using it.

What a beautifully simple yet revolutionary App! But don't tell Apple that I can put off upgrading my Macbooks for another year ;)

It's "just working". Thank you so much. Love the product. Love the support.

A) the user interface is completely intuitive, B) it seems to work perfectly and instantaneously, and C) I did independent confirmation with my usual tool (top from the command line) and astonishingly, Safari was sitting there firmly fixed at 0 %CPU. That is awesome!!! I am absolutely going to be telling everyone I know to go buy this immediately!
