CleanMyMac 2 identifies and removes files that your system no longer uses, and it asks if you want to delete large files that you haven't opened in a long time. This premium app's highly customized and animated interface is straightforward and pleasant to use. CleanMyMac 2 includes basics like a clean-up scheduler, a log-in item disabler, and an uninstall helper.
After a quick intro animation, CleanMyMac 2 presents a beautiful interface -- a sidebar with tabs and a details section. During a full scan, the app looks for log and cache files, universal binaries, language files, and other data that is not critical. The scanning process is quite fast: It took the software just over five minutes to scan our entire system and flag around 200MB worth of files for deletion.
We also like the helper that fully uninstalls apps, the iPhoto integration, and the option to clean code-signed apps. Another powerful feature: CleanMyMac 2 can improve your Mac's performance by disabling log-in items and background services.
If your computer feels sluggish, CleanMyMac 2 can improve its overall performance by disabling unused software. It can also help you reclaim system space taken by unnecessary files. With its straightforward layout and nice visuals, CleanMyMac 2 is a worthwhile download.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of CleanMyMac 2 for Mac 2.2.2.
