Overview

Get out of the passenger seat and take control of your Mac. Set your login window picture, use the screensaver as your Desktop, modify advanced file permissions (ACL), change the system welcome message, enable simultaneous recordings in QuickTime, view system logs, or enable the Debug menu in numerous apps.

Nice to have a graphical all in one place tool, but most recent update is not backwards compatible. Wasted time uninstalling and finding the old one. Have to remember this when I move to latest OS.

MacPilot 12 launched prematurely! It works only on macOS 11 Big Sur, which was launched seven weeks later. Don't install it if you are on macOS 10.15 Catalina or earlier.

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.
