Editors' Review

by   / April 02, 2013

The number of options available in the Mac OS and its applications can be difficult to manage for all but expert users. With MacPilot for Mac, users can track and change settings in a number of areas from one program.

The free trial version of MacPilot for Mac comes with a 15-day usage limit, while the full program requires a payment of $19.95 to activate. The program's native installer set the program up quickly, but a lengthy user agreement must be accepted to use the program. Upon startup, the user is prompted to purchase the full version or continue with the limited trial, but this dismisses quickly. No instructions were apparent, which would have been helpful since the sheer number of options and their potential system effects make using this program difficult for novices. The interface's graphics are well designed, and the top row of buttons divides the system options by category. Each menu has a slightly different design due to the varying options and some of them are not easy to figure out. The changes do take effect when selected and it is easy to revert back if the user does not like the new choices.

While functional, MacPilot for Mac's cluttered interface and lack of instructions make it a poor choice for beginning Mac users, while those with experience may find it useful.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MacPilot for Mac 5.0.8.
