Ever wanted to make your apps faster without having to get an upgrade? Through some experimentation, I believe I have found a simple way of speeding up apps. To start off:

  1. Go to Finder > Applications.
  2. Once there, choose any application such as GarageBand.
  3. After selecting your application, right-click on the name of the app.
  4. In the contextual menu, you’ll see Get Info.
  5. Click on Get Info.
  6. The Information window should come up with tons of facts about the app.
  7. In the Languages box, you should see many languages checked off.
  8. Check off all of the languages except English (“en”).
  9. Load up the app and you should see a significant improvement in the time it takes for the app to load.
  10. I noticed when clicking on the Safari icon in my dock, it only bounced once instead of 3 or 4.
