Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Mac OS X's Unix subsystem comes with a maintenance regimen that is scheduled to start in the middle of the night or when your computer is fast asleep. But what if you always turn your computer off, preventing a scheduled tune-up? Meet MacJanitor, an app that makes it handy to run these tasks anytime you like.

The interface is simple and clearly laid out. You can view and run daily, weekly, and monthly cleanups by clicking a button and then checking the results in the console window. The program usually runs quickly, but can take significantly longer if your system is in disarray.

Although MacJanitor is a one-trick pony, it performs its sole task with ease. A more extensive feature set would be a welcome addition, though. We highly recommend this program for laptop owners or energy-conscious users who shut down their computers frequently.
