  1. Just a little complain about the app name.

    The app is great, I love it.
    But the name is really hard to remember, for a non-english-speaker that used to boot app from Alfred.

    • Why is it an app?

      When we do cmd+tab, why does amphetamine even come up? Why can't it just live in the taskbar as a service?

        In Amphetamine’s Preferences, on the General tab, simply uncheck the checkbox that says “Show Amphetamine’s icon in the Dock.” This is turned on by default because Apple requires it. Apple has rejected Amphetamine from the App Store with the Dock icon hidden by default.

        Will

      • It would be great if Amphetamine 3 does not show an icon in the Dock.

        Hi,

        It appears to me that when Amphetamine 3 is running, it appears both in the Menu Bar and the Dock. If it is a truly a Menu Bar only app, then it should not show any icon in the Dock.

        Thanks.

        • 3.0 icons look poor on non-Retina displays

          Pretty much all 3.0 icons look bad on my non-Retina display, even those that there present in 2.0. They are blurry or slightly misshapen with different line thickness and some rounded icons are partly cut off at the side (e.g. coffee mug). The molecule icon looks noticeably worse now.

          This happens when icons are based on vectors and not optimised for low-pixel density, i.e. too detailed for 16x16–18x18 pixels. The anti-aliasing then makes some lines appear thicker when they do not fall exactly on one pixel. Please make sure that icons look the same at the exact pixel dimensions of…

          • Amphetamine, right and left click option

            Hello,

            Should be nice to have a option to get this :
            - right click (one finger on trackpad) : enable/disable Amphetamine
            - left click (two fingers on trackpad) : displays the setting menu

            When using Amphetamine, it would be nice to have only one click on the icon to start/end the session timing.

              • Awesome app! Keep up the great work kiddo!

                I like that I can leave you feedback here. A direct link to the app store review would be an amazing growth hack. Your reviews will rocket through the roof. Have fun developing, you're making my life a lot easier with this app.

                • It would be great to have notifications back...

                  Older version, I had shortcuts to start/stop Amphetamine and all notifications were showing on screen. With this new version, it does not work. Is there any workaround to have it back? Thanks neto

                  • Schedule sessions day by day

                    I would like to schedule sessions by day. So M, T, W, Th, F, S, Su I set each day individually if it is on or off and even when it is on and off each day for hours.
                    Like many people, I work days that include weekends and sometimes, a weekday I am not around. So I need this more day to day control of sleep.
                    If for some, sleep on and off during the day is fine. I need no sleep, much of a period during the day but the days vary and sleep is fine other days…

                    • Amphetamine - Monospace Font

                      Currently I'm not sure what font Amphetamine is using but if it's set to hh:mm:ss format every few seconds the items on the menu bar get shifted back and forth because as the countdown to Amphetamine disabling counts the seconds the non-monospaced font changes width.

                      Could we have a Monospace Font, something like Apple's built-in San Fransisco font. It's not a major issue but it is annoying out the corner of your eye.

                        • Can you get Alfred to interact with Amphetamine.

                          Hi, I currently use Alfred 2 and Caffeine which works very well. I really like Amphetamine but I would like to maintain Alfred compatibility. Alfred is a spotlight replacement that uses workflows to control applications.

                            • Open Background links depending on which app they originate from in Browserism

                              It would be great to be able to define which links (depending on the app) are opened in the background. Example: Open in background on when searching via Alfred requires a manual app-switch with the keyboard or mouse to see the link in safari. This is…suboptimal. It would be great to be able to define which apps open links in the back- and which in the foreground.

                                • Amphetamine - Please add weekend times to schedule

                                  Love this app!
                                  The one (very small) flaw that I have encountered is that my laptop is waking up over the weekend and I get to work on Monday with ~30% battery level.

                                  My use case: Business laptop user (m-f 9am - ~5pm); keep VPN, wifi active between meetings.

                                  I would like to have finer granularity on the schedule feature added:
                                  - Further define schedule to include Mon-Fri; Sat-Sun.
                                  - It would allow a business user's laptop to not awake over the weekend.

                                  • Amphetamine: Faster way of letting screen sleep while keeping system awake

                                    Hey amphetamine is great, I love it. Since switching over from caffeine I enjoy configuring the amount of time to have the system stay awake.

                                    I furthermore love the feature to have the system stay awake, while the screen may go to sleep.

                                    However it would be great to be able to more quickly select between those to modes, than always going into the settings dialog. Maybe a new entry for this option could be added to the context menu as well, like "Allow screen to sleep" or something like that.

                                    It would be great to have faster access to…

                                    • Single click to toggle on or off

                                      It'd be great to be able to toggle Ampethamine on or off by a single click, and accessing the preferences menu by a right click or cmd+click. I'd love to see the option to swap to this preference; I just feel that a single click to toggle Amphetamine on or off would be much easier and more productive.

                                      • Keep session on while connected to a specific WiFi

                                        not only activate it, also deactivate session if not connect to that WiFi anymore. Like the off power trigger only for Wifi. I would like this for when I am at work/school

                                          Version v2.3 will include an option to end a session if your Mac is not connected to any trigger WiFi networks, provided that the session was started due to a WiFi trigger in the first place.

                                          That said, if other trigger conditions are met (power, apps, schedule, etc), a new session may activate.
