QuitsApps

1.1.4
26 April 2016

Selectively quit applications, menubar version now available.

Overview

QuitsApps is a utility for quitting groups of applications. You can either use "quit flags" to mark a collection of applications for immediate termination, or create a schedule for quitting applications at different times. Subsequently you can relaunch the last set of terminated applications. This functionality is also available as a menu in the system menu bar.

QuitsApps initially runs for about ten days without a permanent password.

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?

Another feature lacking. I can't highlight multiple apps in the window and then terminate them. I can't check-mark multiple highlighted items to terminate them either. The apps to terminate need to be check-marked individually.

The $10 is definitively not justified at this point.. Two stars only, one less star for the issue in GUI.

This app would be perfect for quitting multiple instances of the same application or process... if it wasn't designed with a major omission from the developer.. it doesn't allow displaying processes where owner (or user) is "root". I do have issues with some apps that have more than few instances and they run with root privileges. No problem quitting them in Activity Monitor but it takes a lot of time if there are 10 or 20 instances of a process to terminate them all. Unfortunately developer didn't include "root" user processes in the window so the application won't have much use for me, otherwise I would pay for both QuitApps and QuitsAppsMBI right away as must have tools. The QuitsAppsMBI is way better than CmdQuit, don't tell me that. Another limitation of QuitsApps is you can't sort the apps in the window, they are just listed there by the time the process started. So it can't sort them by name for instance, or filter them by Spotlight label etc.. Not bad for an app but I won't purchase QuitsApps. I will buy QuitsAppsMBI though as it works perfectly fine. I hope the developer is still around, website looks OK but he doesn't seem to respond to any commends in this forum for many years, so it looks like abbandonware and caution is recommended because by spending your hard earned dollars you risk buying something that won't be supported. If quacks like a duck then it's probably duck. 3 starts out of 5. If the two things get fixed, it will get five starts.

Save ten bucks and go for "cmdQuit" available elsewhere on MU. A neat menubar app that closes all or selectively. Great for closing things just before shutting down or restarting so all those open apps don't reload at startup.

AVOID. This developer is useless, as well as their website. I have their "Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle" (even their link on this page is useless) where you get all of their apps with updates forever. Yeah, good luck. Anyone else having problems? Leave a comment, and maybe I'll start legal action to get them to honor their comments.

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.

Utterly pointless. The developer should work on his skill and produce better software... not continue pushing crap. Mac shareware at its worst.

Hi John, What's the point of a "review" when you don't substantiate it with any legitimate viewpoints on the specific features you call crap? What's pointless to you may well be worthwhile to someone else. Joe

Not everything deserves a detailed rationale. Some things are so obviously useless to any impartial observer that I don't need to explain it to them.

Well, if it's needless to provide any rationale for your statements because they're so obvious, then why would it be necessary for you to make any comments in the first place? I'd think that would be equally obvious to the so called "impartial observer," which your obviously not, implying no rationale for making them at all. You're just annoyed with this program and have to vent your emotions publicly. But why? I mean, why do you care to do that? What motivates you to do that? It just amazes me.

The fee for the program actually provides access to ALL of my utility programs listed at: http://www.limit-point.com/Utilities.html not just QuitsApps. In other words, it's part of the "Utilities Bundle." Maybe the demo alert screen doesn't make that clear, but I think the Utilities page does. Maybe there's something else there you'd find useful? Surely you can't be insulted that I cahrge a one time fee that unlocks so much software, especially when I don't even charge for upgrades to any of my software, even the software which isn't part of the Utilities package.

Perhaps you should have investigated the issue a bit before trashing the developer offhand. And that would be a bit different then, wouldn't it?
