Thank you macappware for providing it. I have to compare it to maccleanse even though they do slightly different things I think macoptimizer would benefit from these:

An app uninstaller that ensures prefs, logs, etc. are also zapped.

Some of these “optimiser” and “cleaning” apps are borderline theft, really.

Check out some the “features” on this one - and for $20 at that.

Show the User Library Folder? A Check box in the Finder Preferences
Clean Safari History? Really? Look in the Safari Menu
Desktop Genie? Or how about View -> Sort By
Empty the iPhoto Trash?
System Tasks run automatically.
Remove unwanted Language resources? Monolingual is free
Memory Hogs? Have you looked at Activity Monitor in your Utilities Folder - free, made by Apple and already there…

I could go on and on. This app does nothing that you can’t do yourself for free and/or simply should not be done.

It's not theft at all. There are many apps for Mac that help bring some of the tools available in every Mac computer into an easy to use interface. There are a ton of things you can do using the command line feature of Terminal, but I know a lot of newbies and novices that are not comfortable doing this; or tracking down what you can do in the command line can take a little time which apps like MacOptimizer can save you.

Desktop Genie goes well beyond the included Sort By option.

VERY basic tool. Many alternatives available that are cheaper and even free.

1. Where can I download MacOptimizer?
2. Why do you offer other than MacOptimizer Download Links on this site?

Is the negative review only because you are unable to download the app for the freebie bundle?

If anyone is having difficulty downloading MacOptimizer 2.0 please contact me directly to receive a download (kyle at macappware.com). We are happy to be working with MacUpdate to provide freebie bundle customers with an app to replace the developer who backed out, so please be patient while we work out any kinks in delivering MacOptimizer to you. Please reserve reviews for any problems or user experience you have with using the actual software.

Thank you,

Go to your profile to "Purchases", choose Mac Optimizer (or any other app from the Bundle), you will find the download link at the bottom of the page.

Like dp8 describes some posts down below, your purchase receipt for the MU Freebie Bundle has been updated with a download link. It resides near the bottom of the page on a yellow highlighted section called 'Special Instructions'.

Thanks MU and 128bit Technologies!

Finally received an email with a working download link and serial number – but where do I enter that serial number?!?

There's no info/registration page and the prefs menu item is grayed out. No window or dialog box popped up asking for a serial number either.

Is this just a demo version or is the serial number not required at all?

Are the devs replying only to reviews/comments and not to troubleshooting posts?

After a lot of messing around I finally went to member purchases, clicked on macoptimizer which opened a new page with copy of receipt that had the download link at the bottom. The receipt emailed did not have this link, now to see if the software is any good. Hope this helps all those like me that couldn't download it

The zip file at the download link at the bottom of the receipt, http://dl.macupdate.com/prod/MacOptimizer.zip, is corrupt. Why is this so difficult to get right?

It is a replacement for some Koingo software because the developer backed out. MacUpdate was good enough to provide our software to take its place.

Thanks MacUpdate BUT too bad for me, I cannot use this as I am still on Snow Leopard (OS X.6.8). Too bad choice was not better. Oh well.

Thank you macappware for providing it. I have to compare it to maccleanse even though they do slightly different things I think macoptimizer would benefit from these:

An app uninstaller that ensures prefs, logs, etc. are also zapped.

Duplicate files and Universal Files purging

Unsupported Binaries purching (files that do not support arch or os)

Orphans (files from improper uninstalls that are stranded, such as logs, prefs, etc).


Mac OS Plugins manager (Skype for example sticks a lot of their stuff in the address book app, etc).

Secure Delete option

Thank you for the suggestions! We are always looking for the next features to integrate (and already have a couple in the works for a free update in the next couple months!).
