Editors' Review Staff May 16, 2014

Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac helps you reclaim space on your computer by deleting duplicate and unused files. Through the app's intuitive interface, you can quickly access all features and have your computer running more smoothly in no time.


Three functions: To help you free up as much memory as possible and stay organized, this app completes three separate but complementary functions. It scans for unused or obsolete files that can be deleted, it identifies duplicate files, and it lets you manage your desktop, so you can be sure all files are in the proper place.

Clear interface: The first time you use it, the app walks you through the scanning process and identifies key items on the interface that will be helpful as you work through the program. And because the interface is so well laid out, users of all experience levels will have no trouble finding their way around.

Duplicate analysis: In order to find duplicate files, this app uses a bit-by-bit analysis process. This method produces much more accurate results than the method used by many other programs of using date and time stamp analysis, and file description.


Limited trial function: The trial version of this app can only complete the preliminary steps of each function. You get to see what each phase of the scanning process looks like, but to get any real functionality out of the program, you'll have to pay $29.99 for an unrestricted license.

Bottom Line

Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac is a smooth and powerful program that effectively streamlines the process of identifying and removing unnecessary files from your computer. It's definitely worth checking out even if you think your machine is pretty well organized. You may be surprised by what the scans turn up.

Developer's Description

Intego Washing Machine X9 makes it easy to get rid of the junk that's making your Mac slow--duplicate files and old programs you never use. Plus, it enables you to automatically organize things so both you and your Mac operate more efficiently. Washing Machine X9 performs the following tasks Reclaims Space - Seeks out files the user no longer uses or needs and quickly cleans them from their machine, freeing up gigabytes of space and increasing Mac performance. These files include downloads, caches, logs and trash. Finds Duplicates - Identifies duplicate files by analyzing the bits, and lets the user select which versions to remove. Other Mac cleaners find duplicates by using basic techniques that fail to identify all duplicates. Creates Smart Folders - A powerful OS tool, Smart Folders offer quick access to frequently used files and applications. Smart Folders can be added to finder favorites. Shows what apps are used the most (or least) and allows the user to quickly drag the apps to or from the dock. Cleans up Desktop Files - Moves files on the desktop to the appropriate finder folders or the trash.
