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'.
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.
As it happened I had to take my computer into the Genius Bar at my local Apple store to solve a minor issue that I had with it. I happened to mention to the 'Genius' that I was intending to use a decluttering programme on the computer: he asked which one and I told him CleanMyMac. He advised me not to use it because some files are only used by the Mac operating system every 6 months, and that CleanMyMac will remove those files believing them to be junk files, the result being that your computer may cease to work for an unknown reason some months down the line. He recommended instead one of the free decluttering programmes from the Apple App Store which, because they are in the App Store, have 'been checked by Apple'.
Hence the three stars - maybe it's good, but maybe it's not so god for your Mac. I'm not sure, but I don't think that I'll be using it.
It just does what it says on the tin!! '''''
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.
