LaunchControl is a Mac utility from Soma-zone that lets you control what programs are running on your Mac by provding a graphical interface to the operating system’s critical “launchd” mechanism. Features include a control palette that shows all manner of “jobs” (running programs), including background, hidden and startup programs (e.g. Google’s updater; Apple’s gamed and photoanalysisd; firewall programs, disk drivers, backup programs and much, much more), providing details about status, invocation, options and program locations, plus numerous controls over their operation (along with built-in help and tooltips).
(Note that changes to Apple processes, such as disabling unwanted Apple Game Center or photo-analysis daemons, require turning off “SIP” via the csrutil disable command, which must be entered from Recovery mode on the Terminal command line.)
With LaunchControl you see all services and their respective status at a glance. Invalid services are highlighted and a problem description is provided. You can enable or disable services with a single click. The same goes for loading, unloading and ad-hoc starting. A long list of jobs may be filtered by job name and/or various properties, helping you to find what you are looking for in an instant.
