Just upgraded to the Mojave edition, which is the first time I paid again for ages. 40 percent off the new price which means this falls in line with the normal major version upgrade practice off almost all software companies. According to the email I received this serial number will work for the next five system versions as well. Which is a good thing to know. In the mean time Cocktail is running fine and working as advertised, thank you very much.

Has Maintain closed down? I was a lifetime-paid owner of Cocktail since way back. I was forced to pay to get the BETA version for Catalina. So much for lifetime. Today I wanted to run Cocktail and when I noted I still had the Beta I first tried the apps "check for update". That gave an error. So I tried to go direct to maintain.de and Safari says "Can't find the server" Then I come to MacUpdate and tried to get the 13.2.5 version. This download results in the same error. Did Maintain take my money (and other users' money) and run? Reminds me of when Unsanity.com of FruitMenu, WIndowShade and others did the same. They even asked for customers to pre-order to help them financially then closed down.

This is not a review per se, it is a discussion of the class of software to which this program belongs. As a public service to the MacUpdate community, I've found as many of these "cleaner" apps on this website as I could and listed them them below. (I did a search for 'cleaner'.) If MacUpdate will let me, I intend to post this every time a new or updated version of one of these things shows up on this site. There are 40 in the list, and it seems like new entries in the 'Mac cleaner' market space pop up every day, metastasizing like a cancer. Unfortunately, more is not better. They are all of dubious value. Many have no reviews at all. Many have what look to be essentially fake 5-star reviews with no useful commentary. Many -- probably the most accurate and honest -- have negative reviews, by users who have been burned by them. Most of the developers' descriptions boast about what a great job they do, but the truth is, there are no good, comprehensive, head-to-head reviews of these programs by impartial 3rd parties. True experts in macOS maintenance advise against using any of them, because in general they serve little useful purpose and they can easily do more harm than good. Macs simply do not need "cleaning." (See for example: https://www.thesafemac.com/the-myth-of-the-dirty-mac/) Some of these programs are notorious for being little more than malware. The user is well-advised to read any program documentation and make a RELIABLE BACKUP before attempting any changes. If I have missed any programs that should be on the list, please leave a comment and let me know. I will rate all these programs with one star, probably one more than they deserve. And I would appreciate comments. If you disagree, please speak up. But if all you can come up with is 5 stars and a sentence or two saying that program X is great and I don't know what I'm talking about, please save your breath. No one here will take you seriously. And I apologize for the almost unreadable formatting, a severe limitation of MacUpdate itself, which compresses maximum text into minimum space, leaving no whitespace for readability. :: BEGIN LIST: : Aooro : App Cleaner & Uninstaller : AutoTrash : AweCleaner : CleanGeeker : Clean Me : Cleaner One Pro : CleanMyMac X : Cocktail : Combo Cleaner : Disk Aid : Disk Cleaner : Disk Cleaner Pro : Disk Expert : Disk Health : DiskKeeper Advanced Cleaner : DiskKeeper Cleaner - Modern : DiskKeeper Pro : Disk Xray : Doctor Disk Cleaner : HD Cleaner : iMac Cleaner : MacBooster : Mac Cleaner : MacClean : MacClean360 : MacCleaner Pro : MacCleanse : MacEnizer : MacMaster : Mojave Cleaner : PowerMyMac : Pro Disk Cleaner : Quick Cleaner : Sensei : Stellar SpeedUpMac : TrashMe 3 : Washing Machine : WeCleanse : Wise Mac Care :: END LIST : :: The only system maintenance tools I recommend are 1) TinkerTool System, a true bargain priced at only $14 for a single license. TinkerTool System is a an exceptional piece of quality engineering, safe when used properly, and superbly documented, with in-depth tutorials for every option. 2) OnyX, from Titanium Software, another excellent developer. 3) I have used Northern Softworks' "Cache Cleaners" in the past (the latest being "Catalina Cache Cleaner," which I have not used) and their products are first rate. As for the rest, listed above, it is safe to say that nobody who really knows what they're doing with Macs and macOS will touch them. Don't get sucked in by a pretty interface. You may very well regret it. -SB

No upgrade price, just pay full price for new version is the message I received from developer when I asked about an price for upgrade. No thanks, I'll find something else to use since most of this is just an fancy front end for commands in Terminal.o

Had Cocktail for years, like others here, paid for major upgrades when asked. They seemed to have had a bad period recently with updates and fixes. I thought that they had fixed that. Just updated to 13.2.1 and I also got a demand for a new password. Whatever I was using for 13.2 no longer worked. If they are going to push an upgrade that will force a new payment they should make that clear before you click on the "Install" button. They just can't be trusted so I deleted everything. Onyx works well for me. I liked Cocktail but way too much hassle doing business with them.

Life time licence.. Total BS.. and it doesn't work with Catalina, so don't waste your money. There are better apps available that do the same job... and are free.
