It helped reduce Onedrive's huge cpu usage within a second. Highly recomend! Works with MacOs Monterey.

Found the release over here on GitHub, installed, limited Lightroom Classic to 1600%, saw its CPU usage drop from 2200% to 1473% immediately. Have my computer back to work on while Lightroom imports 150,000 photos. I could see this as very useful for DaVinci Resolve renders as well. So simple to use. Brilliant. PS. Normally I don't use Lightroom, prefer FastRawViewer and DxO PhotoLab but need a catalogue of everything to merge some hard drives.

Excellent. Was able to precisely control CPU usage of the over-enthusiastic apps. AppPolice is small, sits in the background minding it's own business until needed and does it's job perfectly.

Discontinued or not, here you'll find a build from 2016: https://github.com/fuyu/AppPolice/releases that runs in macOS 10.12 Sierra. I haven't tested its renicing powers as of yet.
