One the one hand I have an app which requires extra bits that you pay for OR on the other hand I can choose from a whole slew of apps which do the same thing (and more) without the need for extra add-ons, all of which are absolutely FREE>

Decisions... decisions... oh me oh my, which shall I install (if I haven't already done so)?

A resounding no thank you. I'm fine. But thanks for the infomercial. ±}

If anyone was offended by my flippancy I truly and sincerely regret not being a tad more serious. I have mood swings and you get what you get but that is no excuse for criticizing an app I have never tried. However I assume things I trust to be true and correct without proof. Again... my current mood does not entertain an apology for my endless verbal garbage. I guess my mood should be more accurately described as extreme boredom. Is boredom a mood? I think so. But once again I a leaping to untested conclusions.

Now..... push "Submit" or not? Decisions... decisions... now I'm having déjà vue.

oooooooww..... spooky............ :(

Another mood swing...... I am very sorry for... well, everything. I am feeling acutely guilty and full of regret. I may never post again.

I hope this post ends up beneath the others. If not then you have my apologies in advance... I am sorry for the confusion.

I wonder if there is an app that optimizes humans. My brain needs a good de-scrambling.

Oh wait.... next mood.... I no longer care. Go figure..... phfff... LOLOLOLOL =>

I'm an owner of this software and have bought a few of the "functions" as well.

Save your $...everything that this app/software does (and will do with purchased "plugins"), are readily available for free, and from what I've seen the free apps that I'm thinking about (and use), have way more features.

I actually think it gives the users of the 5-star reviews cocaine. Sort of a reward system to join MacUpdate, and review this one app.

Guys, can't you remember the old good times when our reviews were COMPARATIVE and USEFUL for both the users and the developers?
And more, do you remember when the authors were describing what their app was doing?
Now the comment are too often: "Good, nice, humm", nobody seems to care if its good but we had already better ones or if it's really a WOW, the author says it's WOW and not which kind of reasons made him think that there is a hole in the market and he had a great idea worth of his efforts were necessary for us folk and… often they even forget to tell us what is new in a new version.
Let's restart to be enthusiast and love to go deeper on both sides in a mutual help to let grow this wonder that are our Macs (and WC, Windows Computers, dragged our of the mud with the usual delay of 12 years) by the time when the 2 Steves gave us a vision1

I bought this app and even upgraded to the premium version, and it's still just "okay". Not the best, not the worst. But does the developer really think that the REAL users in these reviews are fooled by the fake 5-star reviews from the likes of jul.lom, EddieMor (three 5-star reviews alone since March), and CodySimpsonlover? Or is it just another AMAZING coincidence that this app is the ONLY software they ever reviewed? And they joined MacUpdate just to review it?

It's also a crackup to read the 5-star reviews on their own reviews website at http://www.iboostup.com/reviews. There's good old EddieMor on there twice, along with a couple of other multiple names!

I use Onyx, Lion Cache Cleaner, TechTool Pro and CleanMyMac, this doesn't touch any of those apps, but its a fun little free app for the novice.

I've changed my mind since this post, and the last update to iBoostUp in the app store. I would recommend this as a great little tune up app for your Mac. The free app or the full version.

For a free program it does fine, it does do system upkeep. It has a really good clean interface and is easy to use. I have given it a good work out under MtLion dv2 and it ran great, which tells me that the basic coding in it is solid and reliable. I paid for (in app) for the Premium Package, and it ran well too. The premium pkg was I think less than $10 and includes not only all the current extras but any future extras the developer is working on (I am assuming that he is...). I agree with the other reviewers that this app should either:

1. Name this free app something like iBooster Free or iBooster QuickClean and the Premium version something like iBoosterPro or iBooster+ in the MacApp store. OR

2. Just call it iBooster in the MacApp Store but note right up front at the top that the free version does like QuickClean, Disk Health, Firewall check, Startup Items, etc. and "can be upgraded for $X" to include: (Specify additional functions).

It also needs to say up front that it is written for and works only with Lion or better.

Having said all that, it should be noted that even the "Premium" version does not do every thing that say Onyx does for free. In consideration of that, anything charged for more than $5 is basically on the wrong side of the Laffer curve (i.e. what I am saying is the Developer will maximize revenues on the program if he does no exceed beyond the apex of the curve which I think is about $5). As a practical matter, if the developer can get this thing to do more and better, THEN charge more. Just say'n.

This app is not free! There dozens op free alternatives with more features.

One star because the developer is not correct about the price setting.
