Application Enhancer (APE) is a system used in the third-party enhancer modules that helps them to enhance and redefine various applications behavior running on your system.

What exactly is Application Enhancer?
It is a combination of a Framework (a collection of commonly used code that can be re-used across different Application Enhancer modules) and a system daemon (faceless background application). Application Enhancer performs its task by loading plugins (Application Enhancer modules) containing executable code into the running applications.

Once loaded, the APE module performs the needed modifications (such as redefining the minimize window action, or customizing the standard Apple menu) on the launched application memory space. It never touches any files on disk, instead utilizes a set of functions defined in the Application Enhancer framework. To help the APE modules to be loaded into newly launched applications, the Application Enhancer daemon (aped) is used.

Application Enhancer is licensed as freeware and is therefore free to download, use and keep.
