Need to be computer savvy to work the program and know how to do things.
I found this good for finding things that need to be done with computer but the bad thing is I am not computer savvy enough to know how to do the cleaning needed even with the program. Needs better controls that will tell you how to do things better and how to distinguish the good from the bad.
Maybe I need to read a manual but this product seems to do what third party shareware products do but the shareware products I use Cocktail and Appzapper seem simpler.
A lot of one step processes to spring clean. Some things I ask it to do I'm hesitant to run on the results. At first look it seems relatively intuitive but there's more complexity here than meets the initial glance.
I'd say save you money. I'm not really sure this is worth it.
Unfortunately, at this moment nothing, since I could not find a function that would work, and after three major crashes on trying to functions, my iMac was left in such a bad state, that I needed another tool to fix it.
The tools crashed three times on two different functions I tried to use, ultimately jamming my hard disk with a 132GB file, for which I needed a professional utility to find and remove.
Avoid at all costs, until they have released a stable product, and yes, as a software developer I know that it's not easy, but these kind of utilities have to be rock solid before release, since they can really create havock on your machine, if they don't work.
