Yasu for Mac is a streamlined program designed to keep your machine running smoothly by carrying out certain routine maintenance tasks. You can quickly select the tasks you'd like the program to complete during each scan, and whether you'd like the computer to shut down or restart after each session.
Highly customizable: Through this app's streamlined interface, you can select exactly what tasks you want it to perform at any given point. Options include clearing the cache and history from your browser, running daily, weekly, and monthly cron scripts, clearing system logs, application logs, archived logs, and crash logs, and removing cookies.
Runs smoothly: This program runs just the way you'd like it to. Scans are completed quickly, and computer shutdowns or restarts are initiated once the scans are complete depending on your preference.
Specific usage: This program was designed specifically for System Administrators to use as one of multiple maintenance tools. While it carries out its promised functions admirably, it is not, nor was it ever meant to be, a comprehensive system care program.
Yasu is a streamlined and effective program for completing one important aspect of routine maintenance for your system. If you're looking for a comprehensive system care program, this isn't it. But it does offer a lot of functionality and customization options for users of all experience levels, and it's a great tool for System Administrators managing multiple machines. This app is free to try, and it costs $3.50 if you choose to make a purchase.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Yasu for Mac 2.9.
Created with System Administrators who service large groups of workstations in mind, Yasu (Yet Another System Utility) was made to do a specific group of maintenance tasks quickly within a few clicks, rather than needing to endlessly type shell script commands in the Terminal application.
What's new in this version:
Today, I'm very happy to announce that a new version of Yasu that runs on OS X Mavericks is available for public consumption.
After many late nights, I've brought my beloved app back from the brink to continue its place as the easiest to use Mac utility there is.
This version got a lot of under-the-hood tweaks to work flawlessly on Mavericks, as well as work far better with Lion and Mountain Lion. I'm very proud of the results.
