I don’t quite like new update

Somehow Amphetamine 3 updated on triggers instantly, yet new Amphetamine 4 takes ages to react for e.g. detaching or attaching of AC adaptor.
That made me take away two stars, because that’s one of the most important factors for me.

Besides that, it’s quite neat app that does what it is meant to do, but, as I said, I think it did it better before update.

This bug should be fixes in v4.0.2. Power adapter state Triggers should be pretty much instantaneous.

Frequent updates

I removed the application due to frequent updates. Practically every time I check for updates (every couple of days) this app is on the list. Either they are poor programmers which make a lot of errors which require many fixes (in a relatively simply app) or something else is going on. I don't feel it is secure to use this app.

It’s hard being an independent developer. Trying to (in your spare time, mind you) provide a bug-free product for absolutely free. The sheer number of user-requested features that I have implemented and various configurations of Macs out there in the world makes testing difficult. Not to mention supporting as many versions of macOS as possible. I’m just a single human being; I don’t have a team of people working for me. Yes, there are sometimes bugs. The only way to fix them is through updates, which I try to get out to users as quick as possible. Often users complain that bug fixes take too long, but here we have an individual who complains that bug fixes come too fast. Thank you for your unnecessarily harsh and critical review. It certainly makes me feel that people appreciate the work I put in to this product. I may not be the best developer out there, with my limited resources, difficult to reproduce test scenarios, and zero people to help me, but at least I have great customers like you.
