5.0 out of 5 stars The helper, hiding in your dock 1 Aug. 2011
By Voyager

Worthwhile getting the lifetime license, I believe: Especially if you install lots of software.
Some applications install multiple languages - and how many do you speak? A complete waste of disc space, for most of us.
Clean My Mac will find and delete these language files.
It will also search out Universal Binaries, and delete the version you don't need - either Power PC or Intel.
After checking Logs, Caches, System Junk and Leftovers (such as support files that were left when you just dragged an application to the trash) it reports how much space it has recovered.
It also dives in and asks you if you want to delete support files, if you later just drag an application to the trash.
But it also has an Uninstall Applications feature to ensure that this happens correctly.
All in all a program that sits unobtrusively in your dock, until it notices a problem - then it leaps out and tells you.

I have always endeavoured to keep my system `clean', but Clean My Mac has found 2.4 Gigabytes that I missed.
It did, however, miss the odd item; but all in all did a very good job.

The only thing I didn't like about this application, was the need to register it online, before it would work. There are still a few people who don't have broadband, and this just wouldn't work for them. I think "Must Register Online" should be displayed prominently on the box. This does make the experience a bit less `Mac-like'.

Is it worth it?
In my view; Yes. Although I am not short of disc space, I think that removing `junk' will help the OS to run faster and more efficiently. And if you're running short of disc space, it's almost essential.
As a point of interest - it does work with OS7 'Lion'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent clean up 4 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase
Installed and immediately did a clean - the utility was able to find me nearly 7Gb of memory by stripping out clutter from 2 years of use on my iMac which is pretty well stuffed at the moment. Needs a higher capacity HDD upgade soon. Where important issues are found it will tell you what the issue is for you to make up your mind before it commits. The utility will pop up from time to time to inform you or request a scan - but you can defer this to a more convenient time. I like it a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and does a great job 13 Jun. 2011
By Contributor77 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
What does this do? Well when you install apps on your mac you end up installing all the languages that come with it and then when you upgrade to a newer updatged version all this residual cack gets left in place, this little gem will remove the universal binaries and extra langauge packs from your installed software plus lots more with ease - you get the option to select which bits to use or not use.

Is it safe to uninstall the other components? Heck yeah! There are regular updates that come out and download / install in seconds, I have freed up over 70gb of junk on my machine in just 12 months.

Although the mac has the ability to drag an installed app to the trash can to uninstall it you're far better to have the setting enabled to let this do it for you as it will remove the lot instead of most of it! put all the pieces together and you'll end up with a great clean mac and for the price should you really be thinking about it? There are other apps out there like MacKeeper but personally this is the one for me, no messing around and has never messed up anything on my mac it shouldn't have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 20 Dec. 2010

I love the design of this application and it really cleaned a few gigs of space on my MacBook Air which is great because I don't have a huge disk. Would definately recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 11 Oct. 2010
I downloaded CleanMyMac and I used for some time now. The app does its job and my Macbook Pro runs noticeably smoother and slimmer. The interface is very simple and friendly. So I've bought a copy for my girlfriend because she loves to download useless crap and CleaMyMac is just what she needs.

It just does what it says on the tin!! '''''

5.0 out of 5 stars CleanMyMac 5 Feb. 2012
Having moved across from Windows in the past year, I was concerned that Mac operating system does not require a defrag or a means of keeping the hard drive tidy. Apparently Mac's use a more advanced filling system, but they still gather rubbish like all filling systems. CleanMyMac does exactly what it's title says and does a very good job. I have "Lion" and CleanMyMac have managed to regain Gb's of lost space with no problems. It's a easy user friendly piece of software if you own a Mac get this software you will not regret it.

Being fairly new to Mac, a friend suggested this program for freeing up a lot of space on the hard drive by removing unwanted and unused files from your system. It does exactly what it claimed, and on my first run, the program removed over 4gb of clutter.

The thing I liked about this software was the ease of use. Simply hit "scan" and once it's identifying the files that can be cleared, just hit "clean". It's as simple as that. It clears a whole range of unwanted files such as additional language files, system logs and many other things.

With this package, you get a disk with the program and a security key within the box for lifetime updates and support. Just type in the security key and provided you are online, it's registered with no fuss whatsoever. However, it can only be installed on one Mac at a time, so unlike other security software, you will need a new license for each machine should you have more than one Mac.

Overall, it works brilliantly on Mac OS Lion - the time taken to scan for files is between 30 seconds to a minute in my case, and takes a few seconds to clear the files. I have no hesitations in recommending this to other Mac users.
