Editors' Review

Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac helps you reclaim space on your computer by deleting duplicate and unused files. Through the app's intuitive interface, you can quickly access all features and have your computer running more smoothly in no time.

Pros

Three functions: To help you free up as much memory as possible and stay organized, this app completes three separate but complementary functions. It scans for unused or obsolete files that can be deleted, it identifies duplicate files, and it lets you manage your desktop, so you can be sure all files are in the proper place.

Clear interface: The first time you use it, the app walks you through the scanning process and identifies key items on the interface that will be helpful as you work through the program. And because the interface is so well laid out, users of all experience levels will have no trouble finding their way around.

Duplicate analysis: In order to find duplicate files, this app uses a bit-by-bit analysis process. This method produces much more accurate results than the method used by many other programs of using date and time stamp analysis, and file description.

Cons

Limited trial function: The trial version of this app can only complete the preliminary steps of each function. You get to see what each phase of the scanning process looks like, but to get any real functionality out of the program, you'll have to pay $29.99 for an unrestricted license.

Bottom Line

Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac is a smooth and powerful program that effectively streamlines the process of identifying and removing unnecessary files from your computer. It's definitely worth checking out even if you think your machine is pretty well organized. You may be surprised by what the scans turn up.

"Can't use it and customer support is not helping"

December 11, 2014  |  By stephanie.sandbeck

 |  Version: Intego Washing Machine 2014 10.8.4

Pros

I don't know yet.. if I will ever know.

Cons

Incompatible with the Mac OS Yosemite. Poor customer service.

Summary

I downloaded this software since I saw it had both good customer reviews and a good review from the editors. My 2009 MacBook Pro is pretty darn slow and can definitely use a deep scrubbing of the hard drives. So, I downloaded Washing Machine and gave it a shot. Before it even cleaned anything, it required a purchase. Since presumably purchasing the item would help me clean up around 42 gigs, I thought, "Why not?" I want to support independent developers out there.

I purchased Washing Machine and they sent me a serial code to register their product so I could continue with the clean up. Instead of registering, I received an error code: "The serial number you entered is not valid for the product you're trying to activate. Please enter a valid serial number."

I immediately took a screen shot and fired off an e-mail to support. The next day I received a response e-mail asking what my OS was, etc., etc. I replied and the next day AFTER THAT I received a link to download Washing Machine again (I assume a version that is compatible with Yosemite). I did so and tried to register Washing Machine again... still no go and still got the message re: serial number.

I e-mailed customer support and asked about the serial number. They gave me the SAME ONE. This is now nearing the fourth day since I purchased this product and have been unable to use it. I am not sure if I will get a workable serial number or refund, but I have to say the trust is gone and the slow response from customer support is disheartening. I wish I had purchased a product from another developer.
