Is Purity the developer of CCleaner? Sounds familiar. I took a trial and decide to keep it. Handy cleaner for Mac!

Wanted to try this as a cookie manager, but it lacks support for Firefox 4 and Chromium and does not differentiate between cookies from websites that are e.g. in your bookmarks folder. Nice app - but lots of room for improvement.

Very handy for saving a bit of space on your hard drive. Has plenty of options, and the developer always seems to adding new things to clear. Of course it is not a replacement for onyx, but I find myself running this more than onyx for clearing off the application logs.

Purity is a nice app. However, the Crash Logs section is confusing. When I click it, several crash logs are listed, but I cannot select more than one at a time, and even when I select just one I am not able to do anything with it -- neither the Save nor Delete icons change in any way, so I cannot delete or save it. It can't even display a selected crash log. What is the purpose of it?

I downloaded and ran this thing yesterday, and thereafter am beset with a host of problems on my MacBook (Leopard; 2008): -Yahoo mail doesn't load correctly -Ditto, Gmail -Screen colors on my favorite online game (Settlers of Catan) are now minus resolution, and with bizarre colors that I barely recognize as indicating the 5 basic Resources essential to the game -A few regularly-browsed sites will not load at all This blows large. I've resorted to using Private Browsing, as at least I can use my computer. Does anyone know what driver(s) I can load, for to fix this manifold problem? Avoid downloading/running MacDust.

This is a nice little app. Cleanly designed, functional, and to the point. I really like the fact it gives me ONE place to clean up & delete wasteful files and caches. The developer seems to be on top of this one, and is doing updates. I do know this, it's a STUPENDOUS BUY for only $9!

Cache-Out is also free and does the same Applejack does a complete system repair AND removes caches, logs and swap files free Not everyone knows you can reset browsers-BUT-if an app does it-one should be warned- esp if both cookies AND bookmarks go away

Oh my gosh... These stupid reviews by some people drive me insane. The only reason to give this app two stars is if you're jealous and too stupid to write your own app. Lay off. While $10 may be steep, this guy has accomplished stuff I still haven't figured out to do. (By the way, developer, I have some questions if you'd be willing to answer them. Email would probably be best.) Again. Cut these ridiculous ratings. Just comment and move on!

Reset Safari means Reset Safari. When you Reset Safari, you deleted all preferences, all bookmarks, everything. Because you Reset Safari. This was no fault of MacDust, but a lack of understanding by what the word RESET means. MacHeist had the same issue, which is why in 3.02 the wording was changed. MacDust did NOT permanently set your cookie settings, you just kept erasing what you had set as the settings.

Crap! Screwed up Safari so that it will no longer accept ANY cookies!

Unfortunately old licenses from ver. 2 won't work anymore on ver. 3. I remember developer telling that licenses from v.2 would be updated for free to v.3. I hope developer will issue free licenses for old users. Unfortunately on his webpage developer contact info is missing.

You do not need 2.48 for Tiger Support, MacDust 3 was rewritten from the ground up (twice) for Tiger Compatibility.

Well, it's been a while since I last reviewed this. It's first incarnation was somewhat dangerous to use... so I'm glad to see it no longer trashes the System Receipts and mess up your Mac. On opening the app you're presented with a number of tabs from which you can choose your cleaning options. SYSTEM - Ok. But this basic cleaning can all be done by Onyx or Ice Clean or Main Menu. BROWSER- Ditto. Can be done by free apps. However there is a choice of browsers which is handy. CHATS - Again, these are just logs. Nothing special there. Easily cleaned by free alternatives. TORRENT - Can either be cleaned by a free app or you simply remove the Torrents yourself with a few clicks. More window dressing than anything else. OTHER - Just a bunch of caches... again easy to re move with any free application. MacDust is not a 'specialised cleaning' app. It simply cleans out caches, log files and temporary files. What it does is divide the cleaning between certain applications you may or may not have on your system... this is the 'specialised' part. I'll be honest: it's not a bad application, but far too limited to ask for money especially since the likes of Onyx, IceClean and Main Menu (to name a few) do the same job and much more, such as removing .DS files, updating prebindings etc, etc. Still, for people who don't have much Mac knowledge it probably ideal.

Tried this thing but must honestly say I was not impressed. There are many free apps out there that are far better and do a lot more. Why he tries to charge for this is a mystery. MainMenu, for example which is also featured on this site is 5x better and does a lot more including serious deep (and safe) cleaning. I personally don't find MacDust an 'oustanding' tool as the Developer states, but that's my opinion.

Please note that Onyx and MacDust fall into very different categories. I most certainly recommend Onyx for your system maintenance! MacDust is for cleaning and you can to give it a try for free to see the difference between these two outstanding tools.
