Relax v1.1 adds mute after waking from sleep

February 2019

Relax version 1.1 is out now. I’ve added support for pausing after your computer wakes from sleep.

I’ve also changed Relax’ muting-after-enabling behavior a bit:

Previously only starting Relax while it wasn’t running would trigger the mute-at-startup sequence. Now disabling and the re-enabling Relax will also mute the built-in speakers and pause any players. This should prevent even more awkward moments where you thought your speakers where muted while they actually weren’t. 👌

Update in the app, through the Mac App Store or get Relax today!

Denied is now free 🙀, with a Tip Jar

December 2018

I’m trying something new to support the development of my apps. Instead of charging upfront, Denied is now free with optional in-app purchases.

This puts a lot of trust in you, my customer. I rely on your generosity to generate enough revenue to continue working on my software. It’s a little scary, I have to say.

That said, I’m very excited about lowering the bar to use my apps. There’s nothing stopping you anymore from recommending Denied to others and for them to install it on their Macs.

If you’ve purchased Denied before, that’s marvelous. Your support has kept me working on Denied since 2014! I’m hoping you’re with me for this next chapter. 🤟

Don’t have Denied yet? Get Denied!

Relax pauses iTunes too

Relax version 1.0.1 is out now. I’ve added support for pausing iTunes (and thus Apple Music) when you unplug or disconnect your headphones.

Relax automatically mutes your internal speakers and pauses music apps when you disconnect headphones.

Mute automatically 🔇

Disconnecting your headphones or speakers from your Mac automatically selects the Internal Speakers. Any sound that was playing before is now shared with everyone around you.

Your Cyndi Lauper playlist? Yea, that’s no longer a secret.

Rely on Relax 🍹

It monitors your default audio output and takes action when it notices you switch back to your internal speakers. Whether it’s dead batteries, wired or wireless.

Works with wireless and wired headphones 🎧

Even Apple’s AirPods are supported. If any output device gets disconnected Relax has got your back. Battery dies halfway through your Dubstep set? Relax makes sure your disco stays private.

Pause music apps 🎵

Besides muting the volume, Relax can pause playback for some apps.

  • Spotify
  • YouTube playing in Chrome* (experimental)

I’ll be adding more apps to the list every update.

*: Enable “Allow JavaScript from Apple Events” under ViewDeveloper in Chrome.
