To provide this, we have collected together the reviews from a range of sources including both experts and ordinary Mac users. With a balanced view as the focus, we also aim to outline all of the concerns that users have about using a cleaning app and what you can expect after the first use.
Every Mac user knows that finding a trustworthy review of an app is important, but it is also not a very easy thing to locate. The ideal app cleaner review will be one that provides a fair evaluation of what the software is able to achieve and exactly where it falls short.
Before we go into the finer details of this app we wanted to provide you with a range of first-hand accounts and Clean My Mac reviews.
At first, I was skeptical, especially after reading a pretty negative. I take good care of my computer, and I thought that the reason it was getting slower was just a defect. After trying a few services to make the computer go faster, I thought I’d give a chance. I wish I had turned to this app first, I actually can’t do explain just how much of a difference it made. And to think I almost threw out my trustworthy Mac!”
I needed to freshen up my Mac so I could get to the next stage of my hobby, I mix music in my spare time, and seemed like a good place to start. I ran the ‘smart scan’ feature once and then I didn’t have to do anything else…I thought it was going to take a lot of time and effort to get my machine to the standard I needed, but it only took a click of a button.”
As you can see from these reviews, it is actually surprising just how effective and easy to use the app is.
While this is the general consensus regarding the latest edition of the software, it wasn’t always the case.
If you read any reviews, you will instantly see complaints about:
- A lack of flexibility
- A low-efficiency rate
- Some unnecessary files not being found
Changes all of this. The developers have been working hard to make sure the newest edition is able to search the deepest recesses of a Mac and pull out every useless file and hidden cache.
In addition to being able to clean your Mac, you will also be able to make the most out of the tools provided by the system. Some of the best features are its Shredder and the Privacy settings. These will help you to keep your computer protected as well as clean and for you to log all of your preferences for the smart cleanup option.
As soon as you have finished your first scan and clean, you will notice the difference and this is what sets so high when compared to the competition.
Some of the most impressive features of this app are the following:
It identifies files that have’t been looked at in a long time and marks them as “old.” It then presents them to you in a list and allows you to pick and choose which ones to delete. This means you can keep important yet seldom needed records and throw all those saved manuals in the trash.
There are many trash bins on a Mac in addition to the obvious one that a user can see. This app makes sure that they are all emptied.
It trawls through both iTunes and iPhoto, which are prime suspects for hoarding additional information that you don’t need, and then deletes all of the attached files that are clogging up your Mac.
Email is full of saved attachments that you no longer need or that you saved elsewhere. CleanMyMac will put them all into one place so you can decide if they are still important or not.
