Magican

1.4.8
12 August 2013

Optimize your Mac.

Overview

Magican lets you carry out several basic operations in a floating window. For instance, Magican monitors the network traffic in an absolutely new way, and the "Purge RAM" can help you quickly convert the inactive memory into free memory. In addition, you can also get the local weather forecast and terminate unnecessary processes in the floating window.

Magican can help you locate all of the junk and virus-infected files on your Mac, and then "One-Click" helps to eliminate all of them. If your Mac has a virus-infected file, you can choose to trust it, delete it, or place it in "Quarantine". Of course, you may also still wish to know the real-time information on your Mac, so Magican can show it to you with pictorial symbols. All of the data is clearly displayed. Moreover, "Software" helps users completely uninstall any software with the use of a "Remove" button.

Magican also helps users get discounted software from the App Store, and reminds you of any new app updates that are available. Users can also retrieve hardware information from the main window, which can be exported as text or image files.

What's new in Magican

  • Enhanced detection in App Uninstallation.
  • Optimized memory usage of Magican.
  • Enable displaying Fan speed in floating window even if Fan Control closed.

Never trust a piece of software that garners so many rave reviews that all sound the same, and all sound like the writing on the developer's web pages, especially the tutorials and help. These all sound as if they were run through the same translation application and they all sound juvenile. This may indeed be a great pieces of software but I'll hold off on using it until some creditable reviews come in from reliable sources. Incidentally, my ISP flagged an incoming email announcement from this outfit as failing its very reliable spam tests. In other words, it was in the same category as all the genital enhancement and Nigerian scam emails. I welcome intelligent and reasoned dialog with the developer and with legitimate commenters here on Macupdate.

Is this safe to install? It doesn't send any private info back to the developer does it?

This is the weirdest collection of functions in a single app that I've ever seen. The fact that it's distributed as a .pkg file that must be installed (with no clarity at all about what's being installed and where) makes thuds an absolute no-brainer MUST AVOID app.

Only a rather non-power user thinks that "a .pkg file must be installed...with no clarity at all about what's being installed and where". What was that you were saying about "no-brainer"? Heh.

GeoProf, proofread before submitting. "thuds" :-) Smccandlish, or should I call you Einstein? Guess what? MOST users are "non power users" who don't know about such things. That's like saying someone is a rather non good-driver because they don't know how to program the stereo controls. Some people just want to turn the key and go, they don't need to know the intricacies of every system. Hint: Why don't YOU buy Pacifist for GeoProf?

Magican was a pleasant surprise, and I will continue using it. I only miss a schedule function to run some function as scheduled.

This software is perfect. Sure, it has yet to evolve but it is quite stable, free (no ads) and despite the number of options it is very easy to use. Congratulations to the developers for this great work!

I'm posting this only as comment, for I haven't had time to truly put it through its paces. Overall, I found it to be thorough for what it offers and certainly for the price. But I would never trust it for full AV protection. I have Symantec corporate and public level packages, as well as the Sophos AV (which is a memory hog, by the by) as well as others. [I was once a partner in a private IT consultancy where I spent some time in duties related to proactive and retroactive network / workstation defense.] Both Symantec and Sophos AV were able to detect more live sandboxed viruses / worms than this package. And I found the package not very good with trojans (malware delivery units for viruses and worms). Yes, those three things are different. I'm not saying this is a worthless package. As freeware it does very well for general protection. But I will say that if you want maximum defense, this may not be the way to go in the long run. Still is far better than being unprotected at all and stands well for its intent. So give it a try. You'll be happy with it for general use, so long as you are smart about where you go and what you do on the Internet... or with your email.

You don't need AV protection on Mac. There is not a single active virus in the wild today.

Balogna. There are Java, Flash, and Acrobat vulnerabilities, trojans, phishing attacks, Windows virus' that can be passed on, and so on… To say you don't need A/V protection on a Mac is short sighted and incorrect.

@Penguirl: "Balogna" Technically, Tony2013 is correct. We don't need AV (anti-virus) protection, because there are no Mac viruses. But there is Mac malware as you point out. As for Java and Flash vulnerabilities, if you don't need the Java and Flash plug-ins, don't have them installed. Windows viruses only affect Windows installations. So if you have Windows installed on your Mac (in Boot Camp or virtualization), you should be running Windows AV in it. Trojans and phishing are forms of malware... but they are not viruses. These forms of malware require the user to be tricked into installing or using them. If you are installing software from untrusted sources, or if you click on unusual links in email or the web, you should run software (for example ClamXav) to check your Mac. But overall, Mac users have never had viruses to worry about, and they have nothing like the plague that Windows users must worry about and deal with every day.

Let me know when a virus appears on a Mac. Gave up that game -- which profited Symantec, mostly--years ago. Meanwhile, this experienced user is not exactly living in fear.

Thank you for all your reviews here, no matter its good or bad. Magican is freeware and that may violate benefits of some paid apps, then causing some criticism. We do not local in English customer service, because she comes from Malysia. But that do not means we do nothings on making progress. So as we told in the first sentence, thank you for all your criticism reviews that helps Magican grew up more quickly.

This is a real fresh take on monitoring software. I have MacKeeper, Onyx, Cocktail and MLCC and all the bells and whistles. To me MLCC is the king of the crop for under the hood, but on a GUI, Magician is so beautiful and easy to use that I have stat menus over my desktop, weather and CPU / RAM. not only is it a good app up against MacKeeper the download and scan feature and the ability to open apps as they are downloaded after being scanned is worth $4.99. Just my 2 cents.

First, I've tried slightly older version 1.1.4 than current 1.2.0 but haven't noticed any related changes in the changelog so it shouldn't be too much off. It looks like a promising piece of software given some of its features that could be otherwise found in paid applications, but to me it feels too much like some sort of circus. I don't want the whole monitoring and weather stuff but couldn't find any simple way to get rid of it. And I don't actually understand why such things have to be in that sort of app. They could make separate applications so that only who really wants them would get them. Then those ubiquitous "hints" briefly explaining all features... Why it couldn't be kept simple? It's just too much of "all in one" to my liking. What I'd like to see: - simple and clean (minimalistic) UI purely focusing on the related functionality - at least as an option - ability to switch of all those additional floating windows such as monitors/weather tools - and I'd actually like to see a separate tiny app with just the Cleaner tool functionality, perhaps combined with the Software Uninstall part at maximum
