Yasu for Mac is a streamlined program designed to keep your machine running smoothly by carrying out certain routine maintenance tasks. You can quickly select the tasks you'd like the program to complete during each scan, and whether you'd like the computer to shut down or restart after each session.

Pros

Highly customizable: Through this app's streamlined interface, you can select exactly what tasks you want it to perform at any given point. Options include clearing the cache and history from your browser, running daily, weekly, and monthly cron scripts, clearing system logs, application logs, archived logs, and crash logs, and removing cookies.

Runs smoothly: This program runs just the way you'd like it to. Scans are completed quickly, and computer shutdowns or restarts are initiated once the scans are complete depending on your preference.

Cons

Specific usage: This program was designed specifically for System Administrators to use as one of multiple maintenance tools. While it carries out its promised functions admirably, it is not, nor was it ever meant to be, a comprehensive system care program.

Bottom Line

Yasu is a streamlined and effective program for completing one important aspect of routine maintenance for your system. If you're looking for a comprehensive system care program, this isn't it. But it does offer a lot of functionality and customization options for users of all experience levels, and it's a great tool for System Administrators managing multiple machines. This app is free to try, and it costs $3.50 if you choose to make a purchase.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Yasu for Mac 2.9.

Developer's Description

Created with System Administrators who service large groups of workstations in mind, Yasu (Yet Another System Utility) was made to do a specific group of maintenance tasks quickly within a few clicks, rather than needing to endlessly type shell script commands in the Terminal application.
