This app is great! It's very convenient to use; you can quit multiple apps straight from the menu bar!

Yes I think think this one fits very well with a lot of the other apps from Limit Point Software they are small but when you get used to using some them, it's hard to see what my workflow would be without them. They're some real gems and I love how they're transaction policy works for obtaining a permanent license number that works forever and for all new apps they release, best frigin deal in town! Check it out on their website, it leaves it up to the individual and their economic situation or your belief on what they're worth to you. Of course if you find them indispensable you can always donate again. So GREAT job Limit Point, thanks for keeping things real.

This app looks like a real timesaver for me as a system administrator.

I often have to update and reboot many Mac workstations at once, and being able to ensure all the apps have fully quit would save me lots of running around from Mac to Mac.

Quite often Adobe applications will seize up if I attempt to quit them all at once, and I end up having to force-quit them.

I'm not sure if this is already a feature, but it would be useful if QuitsApps were to have an option for force-quitting an application if it becomes unresponsive after a quit has been triggered.
(This could be due to a file needing to be saved, or the application seizing up, as mentioned earlier.)

Ideally QuitsApps would also be able to trigger a save of any open files, but I suspect the work involved would make it far more complicated to develop than it already is.

I do agree with PAULSRANDALL. This application is really a manna from heaven when many applications are open and you need to quit them at the blink of an eye. You can of course relaunch them effortlessly when you're done. This is really a time saver for a person like me who works with many applications a day and I do recommend it to all serious Mac-users.

I simply do not see the point of the negative review. I downloaded QuitsApps and made a donation. It does exactly what I want it to do and does it well. I use it to kill everything before I run a Retrospect backup because this application takes over my computer when it runs. Backups complete much faster, saving me lots of time.

Thank you, thank you! At last :-)

Version 1.0.5 was a nice update, with a scheduling feature I had planned from the start.

Oh, by the way. You seem to think I don't put serious work into my utilities, so why don't you go look at the reviews for my other utility, AddMovie, over here:

Seems some people disagree with you. Then maybe you can jump off the QuitsApps heckler bandwagon :-)

A 10 second delay upon first run. Numerous disabled menu items that have clearly been left in place from an xCode project template.

It's quite obvious the developer is hoping to make a lot of money by charging for numerous small utility programs without exerting much effort in the development process.

The ironic thing is that he could have exerted his energies developing one program that is much more useful than all these little money-grabs.

I have done that. I also wrote Mailings and Blue Crab, among other apps, which you can find on the same website all these utilities exist on . Those are full-featured applications, which the utilities are not meant to be.

Why are you so annoyed that someone is trying to make money? Don't you?

Once you register one utility you have access to ALL of them. And I charge no upgrade fee for ANY of my programs. I even let you pick your price.

Rather than publicize the trvial fault of the program like deactivated menu items, why not send me a constructve email to notify me? That's what many other people do, and then I fix the faults. You know why. In fact, had you sent me an email, judging by the date of this review of yours, I could have had that fixed for version 1.0.3. Next one.

Make this fee a non-issue:

For basic 'Force Quit': Press 'Command - Option - Escape.'

For more control and flexibility: Download 'Process Wizard.'

Enough said.

Someone actually wants to charge for this?

And upon visiting the developer's site, I need to say that a compulsory "donation" in order to obtain full software functionality is not a "donation" at all. It's a "purchase".

Why the "donation" bit at all? Is it a tax-circumvention scheme?

Look closer, and you'll see that a "donation" of a minimal amount unlocks all (currently 25) applications available on the page you visited.

Applications like "AddMovie," "TransformMovie," "Miana," "WordDump" and many more.

This is just version 1.0 of QuitsApps. I have a lot planned for it, including functionality that goes beyond the scope implied by the name.

And, all upgrades to everything is FREE.

So, semantics here are silly.
