MacPilot overview

MacPilot gives you the power of UNIX and the simplicity of Macintosh, which means a phenomenal amount of untapped power in your hands! Use MacPilot to unlock over 1,200 features, and access them all with the easy and familiar Macintosh user interface. No command line tools or complicated file operations!

Display hidden files in the Finder, disable the startup chime, add spacers and stacks to the Dock, change the screenshot file format, run maintenance tools, tweak network settings, force empty the Trash, and tons more. Keep yourself in awe and busy for days as you discover how much Mac OS X has "under the hood".

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.

When I try to give it Full Disk Access in the Privacy Pref, MacPilot does not show up on the list. So I am unable to use it. (running Monterey)

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.

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.

Went to upgrade my version 10.5 to version 11 and only presented with the subscription option. Looks like this will be one piece of software I'll be doing without when I perform my next macOS upgrade! I understand that developers need to earn money but I leaned from Adobe about being nickled and dimed to death! Not into the subscription game and avoid any and all software using that model, especially for a piece of software I rarely used. Looks like I'll have to wait until a more viable option to either upgrade or do another purchase comes along!

MacPilot combines everything you've ever imagined were possible with your Mac! I'm still reeling a bit over the price of this one. You don't expect it to do all that it does for that cheap! Finally an app that gives back way more than what you initially paid for it. I'm impressed. Very impressed. Awestruck, even.

I've heard of being able to modify the way your Mac works with terminal commands and messing around with all that stuff, but I've always been too afraid to try it. For that reason alone, I'm glad I discovered this app! MacPilot is a safe way to screw around and discover things you never even imagined were possible with your Mac. Don't like the modification you just did? Just click the button again. It's honestly that simple.
