This app went on a 'seek and destroy' mission and managed to locate and delete a tonne of junk I thought I had already deleted months ago. I was so surprised at how much it actually found, so 5 stars for that. I did laugh when it located spyware in itself ..., but I'm going to over-look that.

An update regarding v9.2: as I mentioned earlier I am a photographer but do occasionally use Visual Studio Code for some light javascript or html/css editing. In 9.2 this is able to clear out the cruft left behind after my Code editing session. Suprising that VSCODE creates so many temporary files that it never cleans up after itself. 9.2 Code cleaner is a welcome addition to Quick CLean, thanks!

Spyware Doctor version 9.1 seems to be looking inside kexts and other new places. Trust that it could find any types of malware (no matter how rare it is on Mac)!

Up to version 9 now and it's still pretty good, but I have to say the screenshots on this site are very outdated. Is this page developer approved or does the whole macupdate just scraping the web pages without image refresh I'm wondering? If the developers are watching this page, I would suggest a new feature to show your machine's temperature on the main screen.

The iBoostUp update candence (about once a month) is impressive and the features keep improving. I really love the new security features like Spyware Doctor, Keylogger Guard, HID Implant Guard, etc. The good thing about these functions is that unlike some other apps, they are able to detect as yet unknown threats to your privacy. Did you know that 'The Unarchiver' has integrated analytics? I did't know it either, but Spyware Doctor's heuristic warning alerted me. Now I am using a different unarchiver.

This is not a review per se, it is a discussion of the class of software to which this program belongs. As a public service to the MacUpdate community, I've found as many of these "cleaner" apps on this website as I could and listed them them below. Before you even *think* of installing any of them, PLEASE read this: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-8841. There are now 76 (that's SEVENTY-SIX) programs in the list, and it seems like new entries in the 'Mac cleaner' market space pop up every day, metastasizing like a cancer. Unfortunately, more is not better. They are all of dubious value. Many have no reviews here. Many have what look to be essentially fake 5-star reviews with no useful commentary. Many -- probably the most accurate and honest -- have negative reviews, by users who have been burned by them. Most of the developers' descriptions boast about what a great job they do, but the truth is, there are no good, comprehensive, head-to-head reviews of these programs by impartial 3rd parties. True experts in macOS maintenance advise against using any of them, because in general they serve little useful purpose and they can easily do more harm than good. Macs simply do not need "cleaning." (See for example: https://www.thesafemac.com/the-myth-of-the-dirty-mac/) Some of these programs are notorious for being little more than malware. Many have "disk" in their name, although disks, especially internal ones, are now a thing of the past. (Although macOS still comes with the storage drive initialized as "Macintosh HD," a quaint relic of a bygone era.) You are well-advised to read any program documentation and make a RELIABLE BACKUP before attempting any changes. If I have missed any programs that should be on the list, please leave a comment and let me know. I will rate all these programs with one star, probably one more than they deserve. And I would appreciate comments. If you disagree, please speak up. But if all you can come up with is 5 stars and a sentence or two saying that program X is great and I don't know what I'm talking about, please save your breath. No one here will take you seriously. And I apologize for the almost unreadable formatting, a severe limitation of MacUpdate itself, which compresses maximum text into minimum space, leaving no whitespace for readability. :: BEGIN LIST:: Aooro : AppCleaner & Uninstaller : AutoTrash : Avast Cleanup : AVG Cleaner : AweCleaner : Broom : BuhoCleaner : CCleaner : Clean Disk : CleanGeeker : CleanGenius : Clean Me : CleanMyDrive : CleanMyMac X : Cleaner One Pro : Cocktail : Combo Cleaner : Disk Aid : Disk Analyzer Pro : Disk BoostUp : Disk Clean Pro : Disk Cleaner : Disk Cleaner Pro : Disk Diet : Disk Doctor : Disk Expert : Disk Health : Disk Janitor : DiskKeeper Advanced Cleaner : DiskKeeper Cleaner - Modern : DiskKeeper Pro : Disk Manager: Disk Sensei : Disk Xray : Disk Xray Lite : Doctor Disk Cleaner : FastScanner Pro : Hard Disk Manager : HD Cleaner : iBooster : iBoostUp : iCare : iMac Cleaner : MacBooster : Mac Cleaner : MacClean : MacClean360 : MacCleaner Pro : MacCleanse : MacEnizer : MacMaintenance : MacMaster : MacOptimizer : MacTuneUp : Mechanism8 : Mojave Cleaner : More Disk Space : Omni Remover : Power Booster : PowerMyMac : Precious Disk : Pro Disk Cleaner : Quick Cleaner : SubRosaSoft Drive Cleaner : Sensei : Startup Manager : Stellar SpeedUpMac : TrashMe 3 : Washing Machine : WeCleanse : WinZip Mac Optimizer : Wise Mac Care : Wise mCleaner : XustoDisk : Xustomite :: END LIST :: The only system maintenance tools I recommend are 1) TinkerTool System, a true bargain priced at only $14 for a single license. TTS is a an exceptional piece of quality engineering, safe when used properly, and superbly documented, with in-depth tutorials for every option. One of its many components is called "Uninstallation Assistant," which will find and remove app components, probably better -- and more safely -- than anything listed above. 2) OnyX, from Titanium Software, has a loyal following and gets good reviews here. 3) I have used Northern Softworks' "Cache Cleaners" in the past (the latest being "Big Sur Cache Cleaner," which I have not used) and their products were always first rate. Still, the same warnings apply. You can't just go hacking into your Mac, removing files willy-nilly, not knowing what function they perform. As for the SEVENTY-FIVE, listed above, it is safe to say that nobody who really knows what they're doing with Macs and macOS will touch them. Don't get sucked in by a pretty interface. You may very well regret it. -SB

Freed up loads of space. Love the Spyware Doctor function because it found a PUP that others missed. Had a question and support were very responsive and incredibly polite. Really cannot fault this app at all.

Latest version is 8.6.2 and looking better than ever on my 13" MacBook Pro. Previously you had to scroll around on smaller screens (was totally fine on the iMac and 15" MBP) Apparently this now has full support for Apple Silicon based machines. Getting my new one next week and will let you all know.

Many handy functions. Always easy to use. I've been using the app for about 5 years. Works really well on all 3 of my Macs: an ancient MacBook Air running El Capitan, iMac running Catalina and a Macbook Pro running Big Sur.

Totally agree with James(July 4, 2020). I tried it. Useless. Even the "free features" are not exactly free. Different "free" scanning features, do not remove anything. You have to PAY. Each feature has....a different PRICE! Their FAQ has all answers....except the PRICE. Onyx does everything and better.

I would not consider this product as it is being sold using a "Bait & Switch" marketing trick. Yes it can be downloaded and used with limited functionality but I could not find anywhere that it listed the cost of the optional paid features, if it used a subscription model for paid features, or what the basic features included. It seems that the only way to become a fully informed consumer to make a purchase decision is to download and install it, then if you not find the basic features, whatever they are useful, or the costs of the advanced features, then you have to figure out how to uninstall it and get rid of all the support files it may install on your machine. In general if a developer is not up front with the actual cost of a product I more then likely will not even consider trying it. It simply poses the question to me, "What are they trying to hide and for what reason". I believe consumers have an inalienable right to know the actual cost of a product so that they can make an informed decision before obtaining it.
