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.

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.

Sparkle wants me to update to the Leopard-only version. Since I have Tiger, it would ruin it on my system. I would suggest using a different app-cast URL for the Leopard version so that us Tiger users aren't bothered anymore.

This application improves with each update, and it was great to begin with. The interface is clean, and the list of applications it cleans grows every few weeks. The developer actually listens to the users, and does what he can to accommodate our requests--including mine for a more thorough cleaning of some straggling Acquisition files. He is fast to respond, intelligent, and humorous. Frankly, we need more Mac developers like him. There is a trial of the software, so try it out and see if it meets your needs. And give the developer at least a few hours to reply to your email or purchase. This is not McDonald's, you know. ;-) P.S. Tim, thanks for the smart code for adding AIM online status to RapidWeaver. That was cool!

Don't buy this. Bought this during the promo. Two weeks later, the developer updated it to version 2.0 and rendered my purchase useless. Asked what's going on and the developer said he made a mistake in pricing and begged me to buy for this upgrade. I luv to help and support developing software. But his reply is simply inexcusable and ridiculous, and his method is despicable.

Dave, you haven't even tried MacDust (it's not even on your recently downloaded apps, you haven't even looked into giving it a shot!), you can't say that you know everything it does! MacDust does many things it's free, and even it's shareware competitors can't!

I've only used this program once but my problem is that it doesn't tell me what good it did to delete the "stuff" I had it delete. Did it save disk space? Did it speed up my computer? If so how much? Without some feed back when I use the program I don't think I'll see the need to run it very often therefore I don't see why I should put it on my computer at all. Just my 2¢.

MacDust isn't really comparable to Onyx, Cocktail, Mac Pilot, etc. It cleans files for specific applications and some that the others do not. There appears to be some small carryover of features for system level files. I'm not sure specifically which ones it goes after or whether it gets the same locations (i.e. kernel caches, etc).

Wow, this thing used to be freeware, look what happened to it– it's a full-fledged throw-out-everything cleaner that removes just about every irritating cache, log, etc. you could imagine! I wouldn't mind winning it, but I think I'll stick with Cocktail unless I win it, I've grown to love that thing. Still, it's at an unbeatable price for those who buy it, and judging from what I've seen, it's a great utility. Kudos go to the dev for making this little app into a nice, four and one-half star utility!

A bit limited at the moment.. i don't know if i am thinking beyond the scope of the program but it would be good if it could identify unused preference files ready to delete.

This program reminds me of MacJanitor. It appears to look similar and do similar tasks.

Fantastic price..... i do wonder how this stacks up against Mac Pilot, Cokctail, and Mac Cleanse? May just check it out....I'm curious what they mean by "hard to get at."

I am wondering how this compares with Cocktail's cache cleaning? but to be honest at the price I say get it. I've heard the developer is very responsive to comments and suggestions.

Hmm - is that supposed to be five minutes saved, or does it do hundreds of tasks that each would take five seconds?

Good too. Not even a bad deal at full price, but I gotta say the sales pitch "tak you another five seconds if you weren't using MacDust" isn't very convincing.

Pretty nice little app. Unfortunately, I just bought it about two weeks ago. The developer is quite open to suggestions too. Since then it's already gotten some nice little improvements.

This is definitely a time saver. The time it saves me from having to manually open up all the individual apps and clearing out everything can be put to far more efficient and productive use. At today's price, well worth it.

Despite the bad comments I gave this little app before, it seems pretty good even though it only cleans a few programs. I can see this program doing a lot more in the future. One thing that bugs me like other people: Do NOT use DivShare! People don't like it! SourceForge is okay, but not ideal. The smartest thing would be to host it on your own website. If you don't have one, I'd be happy to loan you some space for some DMGs on my server. I can't really give you the password, but I'm sure there is some way it would work. If you are interested, I'll look into seeing if that is possible.

/Library/Receipts, huh? Delete? If you delete those files, you'll be lucky to even boot on your start-up disc. DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING in /Library/Receipts!!! Whoever wrote this "script" has NO knowledge of OSX.

No, it can't. MacDust does it's own little thing, any other application listed may do some kind of cleaning, but MacDust is specialized for certian applications.

This might have been cute and handy, abet somewhat dangerous when it was beta, but not worth the nuisance fee, at least to me, when their are other free or full featured products out such as Onyx.

The following is from the Apple.com website: Can I get rid of receipts in the /Library/Receipts folder? If you remove receipts from /Library/Receipts, the Mac OS X 10.3, 10.4: Disk Utility shows a "No Valid Packages" alert Disk Utility can't verify or repair permissions on the Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4 volume if the "BaseSystem.pkg" file is not in /Library/Receipts. This alert appears when you try to repair permissions with Disk Utility: "First Aid failed "Disk Utility stopped repairing permissions on '(volume name)' because the following error was encountered: No valid packages" In the Disk Utility text window, this message appears in red text: "Error: No valid packages (-9997)" This happens when the BaseSystem.pkg file is not in /Library/Receipts. Solution If you've moved this file, move it back to /Library/Receipts. You shouldn't normally remove any files from /Library/Receipts. If the file has been deleted, replace it by copying it from a different computer that uses Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4, or by reinstalling Mac OS X 10.3/10.4 from an installation disc. "Reinstall" means you can install 10.3 or 10.4 from a disc, if it's the same version of 10.3/10.4 (such as 10.3.3 on both the installation disc and computer). If the version of 10.3/10.4 on the computer is newer than what's on the install disc, then use the install disc to perform an Archive and Install installation instead, then update to a later version of Mac OS X. ------------------------------------------ In short: NEVER DELETE THE PERMISSIONS. Your Mac System uses them. I suggest the developer first learn about basic Mac OS before he attempts to make applications such as this.

Hi, Empty caches, ok. Empty Logs, ok. ...but empty Receipts file is not a good idea. After deleting them, you cannot repair permissions! Please, don't delete the Apple's Receipts files!!
