MacUtil for Mac

MacUtil for Mac hands more control over to you in determining the look and utility of your desktop, tweaking the user interface in ways you may have already been wishing you could.

MacUtil for Mac comes as a small download, and once unzipped and copied to your Applications folder, it is ready for action. The app offers 50 different tweaks to the user interface, and we tested each one. Some of the tweaks are mostly aesthetic such as changing the dock from 3D to 2D, or making its background clear, but even these can have a minor impact on system performance, with less resources devoted to making things look pretty. Many of the changes actually improve on Apple's interface design. We especially appreciated the ability to add separators to the dock for logical grouping of applications, a Recent Applications stack, and showing the full path of folders in a Finder window. We were also elated with our newfound ability to disable the Dashboard, which we have never used and were always annoyed by the amount of system resources it wasted. The interface of this application takes easy to use to a whole new level, explaining nearly every tweak when you hover the mouse over a setting, and rewarding you with positive affirmations like "Awesome" before telling you where to look to see what you've enabled.

MacUtil for Mac offers an easy-to-use backdoor into previously unchangeable system settings. Everyone, from novices to power users, will find something in it that improves their Mac experience.
