Editors' review

Old hands know that there are a lot of ways to keep your Mac happy and running smoothly. You can periodically clean out caches, repair disk permissions in Disk Utility, and even run maintenance scripts on an accelerated schedule using Terminal. Many apps out there will help you perform these tasks, and MainMenu is one of the better and leaner ones, with a clean, easy-to-access, easy-to-use interface. Unfortunately, MainMenu went from being a free app to a $20 app without any corresponding leap in functionality, so it's hard to recommend it, given the number of lower-priced (and even free) competitors with similar functionality available.

MainMenu lives in your menu bar, with a customizable icon that lets you know when it's running. MainMenu can help you repair permissions, run Chron scripts, rebuild your Spotlight index to speed up searches, force empty your Trash, clean or flush a variety of caches and logs, and more. You can also set up a suite of regular tasks for MainMenu to run as a batch in the background, and you can receive Growl updates to track MainMenu's progress.

    "I paid $19 for the "Pro" version on June 8, 2012."

    December 21, 2012   |   By jmt0427

    Version: MainMenu 3.0.5

    Pros

    It worked for a while.

    Cons

    I paid for their "PRO" version on June 8, 2012. Now I've just been told that I need to pay even more money to continue using it! NO WAY!

    Summary

    These people are of dubious character — at best. For a barely functional app (which the PRO version costs $19), they have a ton of nerve to want even more money! I'll never buy anything from these people again. That's certain! Save your money for something that works and is sold by reputable people. This app is neither.

    Updated on Dec 21, 2012

    In the Summary, after the word "character" I typed a hyphen. I have no idea why it shows up as &#8212. Who knows? ;-)
