MacBooster from IObit offers a collection of tools for monitoring the status of your Mac, from tracking how efficiently your system is running to identifying possible security threats. The latest version adds the ability to securely delete items and manage iTunes files.

Pros

Easy-to-grasp interface: MacBooster does a nice job of visually presenting the state of your system, from memory and hard drive usage to potential security risks. It's easy to navigate among the tools, with each utility displayed in the left-hand panel and its readout shown on the right. An icon in the menu bar gives you quick access to MacBooster tools.

Breadth of tools: The dozen or so tools let you monitor system status, security threats, and performance issues; tidy your system by identifying duplicate, junk, or outdated files, including iTunes items and photos; and remove files.

Security settings: The Security Center utility identifies security services you aren't taking advantage of (such as using a login password) that can improve the safety of your Mac.

Cons

Some duplication with built-in OS X tools: While the housekeeping tools are useful, such as the ability to search for duplicate or outdated files, other utilities -- including those for managing startup items and deleting large files -- are easily handled elsewhere in your system.

Explanations could be better: While MacBooster does a solid job of monitoring system status, it does doesn't always provide a clear explanation of the concrete benefits of using its tools.

Bottom Line

MacBooster from IObit presents graphically the status of your Mac and offers a collection of tools for keeping your system in shape. The tools are visually appealing but could do a better job of explaining their benefit.
