Is Amphetamine stronger than Caffeine?

@kevinace Amphetamine does everything Caffeine does, with some additional features like scheduled activation and system-wide hotkey support. Oh, and Retina display /Dark mode support, too!

Always nice to see submissions, but the additional features you mentioned don't feel like a strong enough hook to draw me away from Caffeine; a program I've been using for years now and have gained some brand loyalty to.

@nathenmcvittie Understandable. Caffeine is a great app. For some folks though, Caffeine doesn't quite cut it anymore, and that's why I made Amphetamine.

A lot has changed since Amphetamine was first featured on Product Hunt. New features such as keeping your Mac awake while only specific apps are running, while you're connected to specific WiFi networks; or whether your Mac is plugged in or using battery (or your battery is below a specific %). You can use your own custom icons for Amphetamine's menu bar images, and that's not all. If you skipped on it before, now's a good time to take another look.
