InCrease
InCrease is a GUI for installing, configuring, monitoring, and controlling the Folding@home command-line client on both PPC and Intel Macs. No Unix necessary, just point and click.

With InCrease, you can easily set Folding to start when your machine boots. You can stop, start, pause, and continue Folding easily from the InCrease window or its Dock menu. You can automatically pause Folding while on laptop battery power, or while select applications are running. You can run multiple clients on multi-core Macs. InCrease can also monitor remote Mac, Linux, and Windows units via network file sharing.

InCrease uses the genuine Stanford Folding clients.


Folding@Home Client for Intel Macs
This link will take you to the official Folding@home download web page, where you can manually choose the client you wish to use, and find helpful installation and license info.

Your choices for Intel Macs and "Hackintosh" builds include the native Console (command-line) client, and the Universal Installer client (nicknamed the "prefpane" client), controlled from the System Preferences pane.

Our recommendation is to choose InCrease above, for its ease of installation and extra features.

However, if you want the standard Stanford folding client unadorned, pick the Console client if you're comfortable using UNIX commands in the Terminal window, and the prepane client if "point and click" is more your style.


Folding@Home Client for PPC Macs
This link goes to Stanford's Older Clients download page where you can find Folding clients compatible with your PPC Mac running OSX 10.3 and higher. Here you can manually choose the client you wish to use (Graphical Client, Console or Screensaver) and find helpful installation and license info.

As above, we recommend that you choose InCrease, for its ease of installation, ease of control, and extra features.

However, if you want one of the standard Stanford clients, pick the Console client if you're comfortable using UNIX commands in the Terminal window, or the Graphical client if you prefer point and click. The Console client is more configurable and may have more work available for it; the Graphical client is easy to install and shows a picture of most work units. Don't pick the Screensaver - it's slow, inefficient, and inflexible.
