Utter crap from a talentless, greedy, deceitful developer. This does NOT increase your CPU speed, it just gives top priority to whichever app is in the foreground.

Snake oil dreck.

Check out Mac OS X's built-in 'renice' command instead, for free.

Sounds like it's just running the renice command.

Way overpriced = low ratings and sales. Some devs never learn.

This is definitely just a prioritizer but it's also the best one there is. The biggest reason I use it is on my PowerBook G4 which struggles doing the OS X leopard animations such as when using Exposé, this app eliminates those animation stutters. Other than that no it doesn't do much so 40 bucks it IS NOT WORTH IT.

It's bloatware, of course, but, this time, I like the "Apple not being respectful" comment.
