Editors' Review


MacPilot is another good option for fiddling around with your Mac, optimizing it to run better and unlocking the hidden potential of OS X and many applications--all without having to use the command line. MacPilot's graphic interface and file browser give you access to an almost staggering number of customizations, commands, key combos, and more, all organized around specific applications (include Apple and some third-party apps) as well as categories like Disks, Startup, Logs, Tools, and Power. You can do everything from changing the boot mode (64-bit or 32-bit) to tweaking the behavior of the Finder and Dock to activating hundreds of "secret features" in many apps (whether you want to, say, disable inline attachment viewing in Mail or automatically grammar check your Web forms in Safari). You can also search for features within a given app or category using a search bar, and browse through popular or favorite features.

There are other cheap--and even free--options out there with similar functionality, so try out a few just to make sure you're getting the features you want. Fortunately, MacPilot comes with a no-limits 15-day trial.

"What a joke"

May 26, 2009  |  By richard19223

 |  Version: MacPilot 3.3.1


none that I can see


who knows? never could try it.


I downloaded this product twice. The first time I installed it and went to open it, it crashed. So I deleted the program, the dmg and downloaded it again. The second dmg won't even load: I get a "file unrecognized" message.
My advice: before trying MacPilot to fix things on your mac, download a program to fix MacPilot! Conclusion: waste of time.

"Helps with switching from Ubuntu in tweak department."

Extremely easy to understand and navigate.


Price is a bit much. After trial runs out you can be stuck with changes like the background of login window. Should provide an easier default reset.
