DOES YOUR MAC NEED MAINTENANCE ?
Reviewing software like CleanMyMac automatically pops the question, ‘ Does a Mac need maintenance’ ? A valid remark considering MAC’s are less affected by system failures to windows systems.
However an average Mac user, changing to latest software versions, doing lots of trails and uses his mac daily, will in time accumulate leftovers in the OSX-system. This is where a software package like CleanMyMac is a good option for optimizing your system and keeps your mac running smoothly.
CleanMyMac is performing a real-time health check, and informs the user of any problems ( memory , storage limits and temperatures ). Popups appear when software becomes unresponsive
The build in Uninstaller performs really well and removes the software and all leftovers, with just one click. Easy and safe. A neccesary utility for every user.
Re-indexing, disk permissions and optimizing mail are some other benefits of CleanMyMac 3.
The removal of widgets, extensions and plugins is another great feature. Finally the Shredder will make your trash really gone.
The interface of CleanMyMac is beautiful and intuitive for all users. A full overview of options makes the job easier. Using the Smart Cleanup button, scans the full system and provides a scan result and the action button.
I personally always check all suggestions for deleting finally. Large files are mostly the unneeded language, system and photo junk files. Cache of your used browsers can also be cleaned, but you may not always want this done. An action confirmation is presented to the user for system critical removals. After a confirmation a report is presented with overall results.
CleanMyMac offers an option for freeing up memory. Again a useful feature. OSX itself has a build in RAM freeing code, but this is not always freeing up all memory available. Now this feature makes it all happen with just one click on the button.
The uninstaller is an important feature which should be used by all Mac users. Ofcourse there are many third party products on the market, which do the job as good, but again it proofs that this all-in package is a good deal.
Just deleting software folders is not removing all internal links. It is important that if you decide to remove an app, it is done using an Uninstaller. Compared to third party uninstallers like AppDelete, the Uninstaller of CleanMyMac finds even more results. Thats really good as AppDelete is one of the better third party packages.
Only use this if you know what you are doing. All files will be deleted permanently !
So how fast is a FULL system scan ( 1Tb with 450 Gb real data ) ? Answer 4 minutes, that is fast I think.
If you want to check the scan time, you may check the recorded scan-video.
This software package is a great full featured package which makes your Mac run smooth and safe. Beautiful interface and easy handling are a benefit to the user.
My advice ? Consider buying, if you want to make life easy.
