  1. Multiple Monitor Glitchy-ness

    This is purely a visual issue. When using multiple monitors, the amphetamine icon keeps switching to only show up on whichever monitor has focus. With every switch, the icon gets bolder and bolder, until it looks like a pixilated mess.

  2. Molecule icon doesn’t look good compared to the previous version

    After the 2.0 update the famous molecule icon looks kinda blurry or fuzzy on a non-Retina display.
    Please revert to before-the-update version of this icon.

  3. Bug?: Lower Opacity doesn't function in Dark Mode

    It could be me, but I did try all the different icons and restarting the app, but could not get the lower opacity presence to function in dark mode. It does seem to function in normal mode, so my guess is that this edge case may just have not made it into a user story or is simply a minor bug.

    Thoughts?

  5. Low opacity mode not consistent with low opacity of default apps (bluetooth icon) in OS X Dark mode

    When application is inactive and low opacity mode is selected, it is still "brighter" than the default bluetooth icon when inactive.

    It would look much nicer if this were consistent. I'm using OS X in dark mode.

  6. One Keyboard Shortcut

    With the previous version of this application there was an option for a keyboard shortcut and using it would ENABLE and DISABLE the app. Why do we need two shortcuts to do this?!

  7. Amphetamine icon does not show on all screens

    I believe this started with the most recent update, but the Amphetamine icon is only showing up in the menu bar of the "active" screen.

  8. Special mode to keep screensaver enabled

    Hey, I really like your amphetamine app, it's working great. But sometimes I'd like to have a special (additional) mode that keeps my mac awake but still enables the screensaver so that I just have to move the mouse to continue working.
    Right now amphetamine disables the screensaver when it is running.

    Hi All,

    Version v2.3 is live in the App Store. I’ve already started work on v2.3.1 which, among other things, will include minor improvements to this feature, including a better UI and a toggle/filter to remove all of the system processes from the list of running apps to choose from.

    Thanks,
    Will

  12. I would like amphetamine to have an easier way to set a custom duration to stay awake

    I would like to set the duration in hours and minutes instead of seconds, this is much easier for me.

  13. I would like amphetamine to have an option to stay awake till a specific time

    I often listen in on webinars that have a specific time schedule, e.g. from 10:00am to 11:00am. I would like to have an option to set amphetamine to let my Mac stay awake during that specific timeslot instead of a specific duration.

  14. I'd love to see Amphetamine to activate without the time settings dialog window

    It would be nice to enable Amphetamine with a single click. I'd love to.

    Amphetamine v1.4.1 was approved and is now available in the App Store. v1.4.1 supports single-clicking of the status item to activate. The way this is implemented is if you right-click Amphetamine’s status item, Amphetamine will activate for the default duration (set in preferences). You can switch the left-click & right-click behavior if your prefer. There is also a system-wide hotkey for immediate activation using the default duration.

    Hi,

    The molecule icon was re-introduced in Amphetamine v1.2, which was released on the Mac App Store on 12-15-14. You are now able to customize the icon style in Amphetamine’s preferences (wrench icon in the main window).

    Best,
    William

  16. A more simple way

    I think it will more efficient to launch Amphetamine with only one click directly with the default duration and to make a right to have the preference screen with selectable direction.
    It's a little bit inconvenient to have this window every time we want to use it.

    Thanks
