Appriority Faster Apps & Longer Battery Life for macOS

Appriority for macOS icon

Appriority is an easy to use tool for Mac OS X that simply makes the app you're working in go faster by allowing you to optimize the CPU load on your computer.  Once fully configured, Appriority works by suspending and resuming applications as you switch among them.  Inactive applications can be set for suspension which will eliminate their CPU usage until you switch back to them.  The benefits of this are improved performance in the application you currently have active, less battery power used while mobile, and less heat produced by your computer.

Appriority tells you what applications are using the most cpu resources and makes it easy to bring their usage to a halt.  It reports your average CPU load and more.

Appriority is designed to be easy to use and makes no permanent changes to your system.  Simply launch it to turn it on, and quit it to return all of your applications to normal.
