I have their softwares, use them several time. It’s not that good but also not that bad. Especially MacPilot, it is doing simple things that can be done using Mac it self. By the way, talking about the dev, I am sorry, bad side is they upgrade their apps too quickly. Baseline is, I think, they sell apps through bundle and promotion, then they upgrade everything. User must pay. OK, Pay. No Pay, no working softwares. That’s ain’t good for business.

Koingo is going to subscriptions. - -> "USD $1.33 PER MONTH (BILLED ANNUALLY)" for MacPilot 12.x. - -> Also: v12.x is ONLY for macOS 11, Big Sur. (Use v11 for older macOS...).

I will not be using MacPilot any longer... developers have become extremely greedy in general. Apple's free OS has caused many devs to believe they now have a license to steal. I've used MacPilot for over a decade. The product has changed little in all those years. I am not picking on this dev alone. Many are doing this yearly upgrade crap. Those are the apps I am replacing or doing without. I have always believed in a clean install for a new OS. I properly utilize iCloud so doing this is now rather painless. It also makes many utilities unnecessary. There are options for MacPilot. Terminal isn't as daunting as you think... any feature offered by MacPilot can be accomplished with very little effort. Backup properly is the only real way to be protected... Goodbye to all Koingo apps for me. Other people can pay for no upgrade upgrades or subscriptions. I changed my email address to a temporary email address and no longer use a single Koingo app. Upgrade policy is as important as the software itself. I will be held hostage by any software. I loved MacPilot at one time. I now consider it a 2 star app. This low rating is due to the high cost of ownership.

This is the be all to end all of Mac utilities!!! There's virtually nothing you can't do with it on your Mac! Support without equal. Innovative. You can do things with and to your Mac that Apple never dreamed the user would be able to do!!!

Too many shills and fake reviews to take Koingo or their products seriously. Avoiding this out of principle.
