oDesk Team app memory leaks

First thing is, I never restart my computer. I'm either leave it working or put it into sleep mode to awake next day.


No applications cause a problem, except oDesk Team. It's UI renders unusable after 1 day of usage (delay 30 sec after 'start tracking' click isn't uncommon), so every day I have to force quit it and start again.


This problem appeared on my old machine [with OSX Mountail Lion] and on the new too [with OSX Mavericks]. Both machines have 16gb memory / SSD and function correctly without delays, except for team app.


I filled support requests twice (year ago and month ago) and in both cases I got promise that it will be partially fixed.


`Partially` doesn't work, it leaks anyway, just slower. 


I wonder if there's anyone with this problem. Do you solve it somehow?

Igor, I have point out that I don't have the latest version of the app, but I have the same problem in OSX Mavericks, and what I do is, as soon as I notice that it seems to be sluggish, I quit the app and restart it. It's an inconvenience for sure.

I have exactly the same problem. I'm usingoDesk Team App 3.10.33 on a new Macbook with Yosemite OS. I never had this issue running oDesk Team App on my old white Macbook, which was running OSX 10.6.8. Upgrading my Mac has been a positive experience in every way, with every program, except for oDesk Team App, whose performance has degraded. The cure is quitting it and restarting it.
