Editors' Review

CCleaner for Mac scans your system to remove all kinds of files that can slow your Mac down and then removes the items you want. Through this app's intuitive interface, you can select where to scan, and then view the type and number of items the scan detected before they are deleted.

Pros

Category organization: When you select items to scan, and when you view your results, items in this app's interface are organized by category. That means you can find what you're looking for quickly, and you know exactly what you're looking at when you browse through the scan results.

Uninstall panel: In addition to the scanner and cleaner, this app also features an Uninstall Panel that makes removing programs from your Mac a snap. Just select the program you want to get rid of and click the "Uninstall" button, and the app takes care of the rest.

Cons

No individual selection: Once you've selected the areas you want to scan, you can't deselect items in the scan results. If the program comes back with files you're not sure you want to delete, you'll have to uncheck that entire category and run the scan again before you can proceed with deletion.

Bottom Line

CCleaner is a smooth-running free program that helps your Mac run as efficiently as possible. While the lack of choice in the files that are deleted is somewhat of a drawback, there are ways around it. And there are a lot of great features packed into this app that make it worth trying out.
