Hi, I bought MacOptimizer back in 2013 but never used it. Now they offer an upgrade for USD $4 instead of a $29 upgrade fee for version 4.0. Are the 3.0 issues, described below, fixed now? Thanks much!

Same here. Payed for the 3.0 version in the Bundle but can’t use it as the serial is not accepted anymore.

Sorry to say I have to agree with most of the people's review. Purchased it last year as part of the MacUpdate Bundle. Tried installing it last week. Does not accept serial. Wrote to support.... no answer. Wrote to MacUpdate.... yet to see, but I don't think I'll bother. Will reinstall OnyX, which is free and 100x better.

Installed as part of the Fall bundle. Ran the "Desktop organizer" and afterwards deleted the app. Now my desktop files are gone. I think the average rating of 1.5 stars say it all and I have to question why MacUpdate would make an application rated this low part of the bundle in the first place.

I also purchased as part of MacUpdate bundle and have the same problem as Kilauea88. It crashes (100% repeatable) on registration screen. I am on a 5K iMac with OS X 10.10.5 For now, based on the comments of other reviewers I ill just delete this program. Looks like I cannot complete this review with assigning a star rating so I have to give a rating of one.

Purchased as part of the MacUpdate bundle...crashes every time (8 times now) when opened shortly after the screen to enter registration info appears. Perhaps a v3.0.1 is needed? :-) Running (crashing) on a Late-2013 MPBr, Mac OS X 10.10.5, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM.

I have purchased the new bundle containing version 3, and I cannot download it. Can you please provide a URL? Don't tell me to go to my Purchases page and get it there, because there isn't a download link. I'm not going to install a third-party app store to download this software. Thanks for helping.

I acquired this as part of a bundle, took fairly good look at it and deleted it straight away. All of the functions that matter to me are covered by Onyx, TinkerTool and Apple's own Activity Monitor. All of those are free and, combined, offer many features and settings that this app lacks. For what it is, it doesn't look like a bad app but the value proposition isn't very favorable compared to other finely crafted apps that are free. I would just like to add that the option to free disk space by deleting language files, though also covered by free alternatives, is more dangerous today than ever before. Apps check their own integrity and if the language folders are missing from the app's own package then the app may not run at all or behave strangely. There is an app offering language deletion that is paid and offers a periodically updated blacklist database in an effort to avoid messing with apps that have integrity checks. However, disk space is so cheap these days, why bother?

Some of these “optimiser” and “cleaning” apps are borderline theft, really. Check out some the “features” on this one - and for $20 at that. Show the User Library Folder? A Check box in the Finder Preferences Clean Safari History? Really? Look in the Safari Menu Desktop Genie? Or how about View -> Sort By Empty the iPhoto Trash? System Tasks run automatically. Remove unwanted Language resources? Monolingual is free Memory Hogs? Have you looked at Activity Monitor in your Utilities Folder - free, made by Apple and already there… I could go on and on. This app does nothing that you can’t do yourself for free and/or simply should not be done.

Finally received an email with a working download link and serial number – but where do I enter that serial number?!? There's no info/registration page and the prefs menu item is grayed out. No window or dialog box popped up asking for a serial number either. Is this just a demo version or is the serial number not required at all?

After a lot of messing around I finally went to member purchases, clicked on macoptimizer which opened a new page with copy of receipt that had the download link at the bottom. The receipt emailed did not have this link, now to see if the software is any good. Hope this helps all those like me that couldn't download it

Thank you macappware for providing it. I have to compare it to maccleanse even though they do slightly different things I think macoptimizer would benefit from these: An app uninstaller that ensures prefs, logs, etc. are also zapped. Duplicate files and Universal Files purging Unsupported Binaries purching (files that do not support arch or os) Orphans (files from improper uninstalls that are stranded, such as logs, prefs, etc). Mac OS Plugins manager (Skype for example sticks a lot of their stuff in the address book app, etc). Secure Delete option

Can't write a review, or rate at this time when one can't find a simple way to download MacOptimizer. With so many years of working out the kinks and simplifying the downloading/installing of apps., this confusing, convoluted, frustrating scenario is inexcusable and unwarranted. MU needs to sort this out. Just FIX IT, notify us so that we may download, install and at least try the app.

Just download the MU Desktop app. Don't pay for it. Take the 10 say free trial. In the left hand side of the windows, click on Promo Purchases and install MacOptimizer from there. You can also save the zip file for archive purposes by clicking on the magnifying glass icon as it install and you will see its location in finder. Not a perfect way to do it but at least it gets the app.

To download MacOptimizer use the MacUpdate Desktop application. Launch the app, make sure you log in using your MacUpdate account credentials, and select "Promo Purchases" from the "MacUpdate Community" section. You will see a download button beside its entry.

I really like that the developer is taking the time to listen and comment on his application. Obviously, he/she has worked very hard on a solution to deal with specific issues that affect the Mac users experience. It is a bit of a risk developing something that is so similar to other applications, but if it is offering something new, or a more efficient way of doing things, it's great and welcome! Currently, I own MacCleanse and CleanMyMac. Both are pretty good at what they do. I'm not really seeing anything about Mac Optimizer that is really unique for me, but I'm sure it will be great for a lot of people. Just an aside, I really don't like MacKeeper because of their shifty advertising and pop ups. However, I can't say that it isn't good software seeing as I haven't really tried it.

If I were to spent $29.99(MU $9.99) on a utility such as this, it would be for MacKeeper. Of which I already have. My question is, why are so many trying to reinvent the same programs.?? Isn't that getting somewhat close to piracy...???
