Editors' Review

CleanMyMac is designed to remove old and unnecessary files from your hard drive, as well as optimize system performance. A trial version of the program is available for download, and the full version is available with either a six-month license for $7.47 or a lifetime license for $14.97.

CleanMyMac performs two different tasks that help your Mac computer run better. The first task it tackles is getting rid of orphan and unnecessary files, including cache files. CleanMyMac searches your hard drive and makes recommendations of files that can be deleted, including files for multiple Mac architectures and localization files. As part of the process, CleanMyMac can also uninstall applications and their associated files. Secondly, CleanMyMac tries to speed up your machine by culling the unnecessary apps from the ones that load when your computer starts. The CleanMyMac interface is easy to use and explains what's happening. You can even modify the theme of the CleanMyMac interface if you wish!

We used CleanMyMac on three different machines, and in each case it performed well. On one of our machines that we use as a testing platform we freed up several gigabytes of disk space, and the boot process improved noticeably. On other machines, we freed up a few megabytes and tweaked the speed; the effect was less pronounced but still worthwhile. CleanMyMac is one of those utility apps that is useful to run at least once a month, and it worked perfectly for us.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of CleanMyMac for Mac 1.10.9.

"Worked well, didn't crash my Mac."

January 30, 2013  |  By GenoaJenn

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 1.10.9

Pros

Saved me a few gigabytes of space.
My MacPro did seem to boot a little faster.
Got rid of an annoying Shut Down hang that cropped up a couple of years ago (intermittent OS X 10.6.x issue)
Safari is definitely running better.

Cons

Would have liked to see more recovered drive space, or a note on how and where to recover additional drive space.

Summary

Although the app seems to have cleared up a couple of annoying issues I had, I must have been keeping my Mac pretty cleaned up already (I've been my own IT department for the last 20 years, since I purchased my first Mac IIci in 1992).
I would definitely recommend this app to Mac users who don't understand the more technical side of the Apple Macintosh OS, but advanced Mac OS users may find it redundant.

"Not "a lifetime license for $14.97""

January 30, 2013  |  By askew

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 1.10.9

Pros

It looks like it works, but I used only the trial version which is limited.

Cons

When I went to purchase, the lifetime license was nearly $30, not $14.97. I would have paid $14.97 but I think $30 is too much money for this kind of application.

"Well worth your time and money!"

January 23, 2013  |  By talkinglens

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 1.10.9

Pros

Gets rid of GIGs of uneccessary material. Has worked flawlessly for me for a couple of years on my PPC G5 machines. Wouldn't be without it. There is nothing to think or worry about with the decision to use it.

Cons

None that I am aware of in all this time of its use.

Summary

Best software for this purpose for the money. The intro was free which I only have to pay to purchase now.

"Great product, why the price discrepancy though?"

January 13, 2013  |  By chillhill

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 1.10.9

Pros

Works quickly and does what it says; always removes several GB worth of junk from my Mac.

Cons

I just bought the lifetime licence after using it for 6 months, for £24.95, only to find out that it's $14.95 in the US for the same thing.

$14.95 = £9.96, so why did I pay nearly 3x the amount of the same product? (Especially given the irony that I paid with a U.S. bank card as I'm from the U.S.).

I wish I'd known this before I purchased! I *am* happy with the product but not happy with the price difference. Unless the UK version comes with some super-duper-secret-options that the U.S. one doesn't. Which I doubt.
