It's a really great app, considering it is free.

On OS X 10.7.5 though, if the app police app is not closed after the app it is limiting, it somehow causes a reboot of the OS. :/

Hopefully the dev will iron out the bugs before the next release :D Clicking on update within the app, the button just disappears and the about me just sits there! I get it, the update server isin't configured to respond yet, would be great if it did though ;)

Thanks guys for your comments.

I would too like to see those bugs exorcised from the app, but I'd need your help to make it possible. So please send bug reports and descriptions on how to reproduce bad behavior and I'll make sure to take care of it.

Works really well. It's a free app, but the developer was very helpful when I thought it wasn't working correctly. Turns out the application I was trying to throttle spawned a subprocess which was doing all of the work.

At this price, you can't go wrong!

Wow, absolute genius. I used apps like App Tamer, but the "all or nothing" solution wasn't want I wanted. Being able to dial down an app, but keep it running, makes so much sense.
