This was once a good product. Now, although they claim to have a Catalina release, the OS will not allow that release to be opened. Attempting to open Cocktail results in this message: "Cocktail.app" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information. Safari downloaded this file today at 11:22 AM from www.maiintain.se. So far, the developer has ignored my requests for help. At the moment, this app is useless.

this developer does not update their app, but even when it was working it did not clear an item from trash that has been stuck there (a leftover backup file that terminal won't let me delete). That was the only reason I bought it, online comments suggesting cocktail would work. Now 3 months after buying it they won't update to the new Catalina, don't waste your money on this app of developer.

Like so many others, my lifetime licence I paid for was cancelled.. and there were many times my S/N for this app did not work after an update. I would advise avoiding this developer for these reasons alone.

Same happened to me when I was in High Sierra. Also happened to a friend of mine who purchased a 'lifetime' license less than two years ago. No replies when contacting their support about this issue.

Pricy for a bunch of AppleScripts. Fairly comprehensive cache killing system. Slow. Single threaded which means you get to wait with Pin Wheel Of Death (PWOD) while it poops along and other utilities warn that Cocktail is unresponsive and offer to kill it. Errors happen and it says "go look in the logs" instead of just reporting the issues. Activation of the app with the license is up to a 10 hour wait but at least the second party merchants accept Apple Pay.

In reality, we really should not need this app if Apple's system was not so flakey... so happy to have Cocktail but not thrilled with how it works. Based on comments below, fully expect Cocktail to stop working with macOS 15 and that will be the end of my license in a few months which will be frustrating.

If you are thinking about buying this, perhaps better to wait until the start of macOS 15 Catalina support so you can get the longest life from your dollar; as if you read other comments the licensing is not duration based but release based.

don't bother buying it then, your lifetime subscription will just be gone when Mac releases the next operating system in a few months.

A historically reliable product has evolved to "DumpsterWare"!

Does anyone else have a problem where, for no apparent reason, you have to reregister this software.? I have the registration info available, in email but that doesn't make it any less of a PITA . No other software I own requires this, at least a couple of times a month.

Yes after being a paid customer, I was dumped out without warning. I had no idea that an update would end my use of Cocktail. Very upsetting.

My serial # continues to work but as I said, I just don't understand why after a couple of uses, I need to re-enter my registration info again. Is it super paranoia, on the developer's part? If a new updated paid version is posted, I definitely won't upgrade.

Yes, I had the same issue and quiet often, with two last versions, for 10.13 and 10.14; sent an email to ask for a correction. Question was promised to be taken in account.. but absolute nothing behind. Actually the registrations are handled by Paddle, the developer has no possible action to correct this by Paddle. With my last upgrade I've learned that this "couple Maintain-Paddle" is a very non-professional association. Waiting for a registration number (Catalina) since October the 8th and today the 12th no right answer..! I don't mention here the huge number of emails without a correct answer from provider..! Buy another software (Tinker Tool System, Onyx aso..) because here is no reliable but expensive service available.
