Latest App News

We are pleased to announce our relaunch of Trash X.  We love this utility and have used it for years, but let's face it - it desperately need to be modernized!  Gone is all of the old code dealing with the Classic environment, gone is the shredding capabilities no longer needed in today's macOS and SSD disk drives.  In is an all new look, forward looking code base, intel64/arm64 native, hardened and notarized for safety.  Be sure to download and give Trash X a try!

Have you taken a look at Appriority?  We designed it to suspend apps when they are in the background going unused.  The idea being that when suspended, they are using less cpu resources and battery power.  We've updated it for the latest version of macOS and it's also native for intel or Apple silicon processors.  We made a quick video that hopefully shows you what Appriority does.  Be sure to keep a close eye on the clock as you watch it.

We think you'll really like what Appriority can do.  As always, it is 100% free for you to try!  Check it out here.

What's Happening at Northern Softworks?

With six feet of snow on the ground and sub zero temperatures, we have plenty of time to work on our apps!  We released our new app dmgArchiver because Time Machine is a pain!  We've totally overhauled Trash X for modern hardware.  We're going to return Lights Out to the macOS App Store.  Same with ClipDoubler.  And of course we are always working on making Sonoma Cache Cleaner and all of our products better and better!

Thanks for visiting!
