Reveals useful hidden features for Mac OS X.

Overview

iTweaX is a free utility to reveal some useful hidden features and maintenance tools for OS X 10.5 through 10.9 (versions for OS X 10.5 through 10.8 are available from 'Related Links', below).
  • User friendly GUI.
  • Uses very low system resources.
  • Maintenance tools.
  • Optimize OS X with no knowledge.
  • Many OS X tweaks for Finder, Dock, Safari, Mail, etc.
  • Clean handling of preferences! When you disable a hidden tweak it will be 100% removed (not so with other tweak tools).
  • Only hidden features - so no cluttered GUI.
  • Restoring Tweaks.
  • It's free!

What's new in iTweax

Version 5.0.3:
  • Optimised kernel cache cleaning (kextcache and pre-link kernel - recommended when your OS X 10.9.x system boots slow)

Great to see my favorite tweak application is updates regularly for new OS X 10.6 tweaks. Although the interface is very similar to Onyx this is much cleaner and not overloaded with stuff no-one is using anyway. Thanks to the DEV for making this free ! Great job.

Why keep an app that has been discontinued?

iTweax is great. I am happy it is free. But I am horrified. My greatest misgiving about iTweax is that the developer is UNKNOWN. He/she has no name, no email address, no physical address. Thus, if the developer sold iTweax to a MALWARE COMPANY, we would get infected with iTweax as the trojan.. Thus for our safety, I recommend staying away from iTweax since it needs administrative rights to use. And this gives it the open door to introduce MALWARE into our Macs. iTweax's developer has to show his/her name, email address, and physical address so we know they are taking responsibility for their work and our safety.

I agree with your thoughts but disagree with stars.
Those are two different things.
You may address to MU to check with developer a way to contact him.
So long Tweak exists I have never read about malware, backdoor and so on.
Cheers.

A quick but important question: Can the permissions for an installation of OS 10.7.5 on a portable USB or FireWire drive be accurately fixed by Apple’s Disk Utility from an OS 10.6.8 startup disk? In other words, are permissions OS-specific, or can one OS’s Disk Utility accurately fix the perms of a different OS?

After that shatter all applications, pay the price for maintenance. I find with this demand between / 80 to 100% solution to the technical problems, (from my point of view, there is a strange thing that drives me love this application) Thanks and appreciation for the developer.

My guess is Roes typed up his/her comment in his/her own language, and then ran it through a translator utility to convert it into English before posting it here.

This developer deserves our praise for being 1st to release a Mavericks-compatible Tweaker/Maintenance tool! In 10.9 as well as prior OSX versions, 2D/3D Dock has only applied to Dock appearance when positioned at bottom of my display; dunno if this true for other users...(???) However, the "2D" toggle in iTweaks 5 doesn't alter my Dock's 3D tray appearance even when positioned at the bottom. (It does quit/relaunch when I click "Apply".) Anyhow, I'm contentedly "stuck" with a 2D Dock on my 27" display, because accessing the Dock from either side is easier/faster than keeping it at the bottom — which often requires me to lift & drop the mouse to get there. So, I'm really hoping to find a way to restore Dock Transparency, which has been disabled by default in 10.9. That new, military gray background must satisfy the post-apocalyptic esthetic which seems to have overwhelmed Jony Ive recently. I could forgive his obsession, except the gray messes with legibility of fine details and the app status lights on my Dock Icons. I found a bucket-full of PNG resources inside the Doc.app, and I suspect that some combination of 'em is responsible for generating the Dock background. If that's true. then Dock transparency is probably beyond the scope of apps that "tweak" hidden settings, since some PNG resources might need altering (hacking) in order to restore Dock transparency. I'm hoping some geek wot's smarter 'n' me spots my lament, and will offer some useful insights on how to restore Dock transparency... TIA!!!
