Applimiser is the application optimisation tool for Mac OS X applications. In addition to the removal of unused language localization files (de-localization), Applimiser can optimize other embedded files, such as help documents. The user has the full control over which optimization strategies are employed. Before any optimization is done, the possible savings are presented in a statistical overview.

What's New

Version 1.5:
  • New: support for the optimization of cascading style sheets (CSS) as part of the HTML optimization algorithms.
  • Re-designed and improved the user-interface optimization algorithm.
  • Minor improvements for special HTML and user-interface files. Only selected applications will benefit from this.
  • Modified the preview handling of options. Unregistered users will no longer be disturbed more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.1 or later

There is a major bug in version 1.3 which can cause a lot of serious problems. I learned this the hard way with Installer. Installer is now set to language = Danish and will NOT open English language packages. Installer cannot be reset to open English language bundles. Installer is totally worthless until the developer fixes an obvious oversight. This fiasco occurred when I was using Applimizer and got an error message about Target Select (which I didn't understand) would reset Installer to its default language. I assumed the default was English, not Danish. Applimizer is an excellent utility. The speed gains are not subtle, and its been a long time since Mac apps could open in a flash. But the utility has not been thoroughly tested, and the interface still doesn't meet Apple developer guidelines. If you know how to use the Terminal to reset an app's default language, you are safe with version 1.3. If you do not, better wait until Applimizer has an Undo option.

Did you tell the developer about this bug?

This utility really does the job, and the speed gain in all apps is well worth the $10 - despite the amateurish interface. Used it for two days with no apparent problems. The interface is obviously a first effort of a very talented developer in Sweden (?) but once you figure it out, the app will remove/clean up 10,000s of useless files which really slow down OSX. Hint: the next upgrade should be use the standard OSX interface and include global optimization of all apps and utilities in volumes or folders.

yoxi:

your attempt at humor failed. that review was
perfectly acceptable, not to mention the app WAS
localized with US ENGLISH, and on a .COM US website.

go snivel in your claimed 45% of the world.

PS: This app NEEDS the ability to load ALL apps
at once... the one by one is kinda lame...

Just for the record, some quickly gathered statistics: percentage of the world's English-speaking population that doesn't put a 'z' in every word with a syllable that rhymes with 'eyes' = 45% !!!

British, Irish, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand - there are more little enclaves, but that'll do for a start, eh? So nearly half the English-speaking world doesn't use the same spelling as the American dialect... ;) Optimise & Analyse are fine outside the US borders (as are Optimize and Analyze, as far as I'm concerned - is this a Homeland Security issue? I don't want to scare anyone...)

I thought something was a bit off about this application's name, but I couldn't quite figure out what it was. The answer jumped out at me as soon as I launched the program and saw the button labeled "Optimise". Right...

Should I be concerned that the developer continuously misspelled one of the the base words of this application's name? Perhaps not... it's just a spelling mistake after all.

To be fair, the developer is Swedish. I'm assuming it's spelled correctly in some non-US English dialect. Unfortunately, it'll take more than that to quiet the part of my brain that finds disastrous mistakes so intensely amusing. I apologize, I'm not being fair. This program deserves a balanced review.

I actually think this is a pretty cool application. It's the only one I know of that will optimize help files and remove OS 9 resources from application bundles. Unfortunately, Applimiser crashes any time I try to analyze Firefox or Mozilla. I also came across a few oddities such as wildly inaccurate estimates for space savings and progress indicators when I analyzed more than one program at once.

Oh crud... analyze is spelled wrong too...

(pauses to regain composure) Moving on!

The interface is fairly simple, but it could be organized in a less confusing manner. The most constant and glaring example is the "Optimise All" button. A checkbox that works in conjunction with the "Optimise" button would be much more intuitive, in my opinion. Further, the grammar in many of the dialogs can be a bit strange.

For now I'll hang onto my $10, but I'm going to keep my eye on this program. It could become a big player in my customization arsenal at least once the bugs are worked out.

Do you want to prove that americans are ignorant of the rest of the world and don't have a sense of history?

In English-English (opposed to American-English), some spellings are different but still correct. Words like analyse, favour, programme come to mind. I'm sure there are more. Maybe you ant to look them up?

If you look on their web page, Applimiser is localized for British English.

Aa hah, you're correct. I comfortably recline corrected. Thank you very for noticing that, anonymous... whoever you are! :)

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go buy another car so I can drive from my door to the car I take to work.

Americans really are a bit DUMB when it comes to anything outside their borders (and some within)...and I'm American!

There's a great example in the Whitehouse!

This seems to be the only tool that can optimise HTML pages. What a great idea! Cool.

Crashes everytime when "Open[ing] App". Panther 10.3.3, 1gb RAM, Flat Panel iMac. Looks like an interesting utility if it would work.
