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.

VERY basic tool. Many alternatives available that are cheaper and even free.

1. Where can I download MacOptimizer?
2. Why do you offer other than MacOptimizer Download Links on this site?

Is the negative review only because you are unable to download the app for the freebie bundle?

If anyone is having difficulty downloading MacOptimizer 2.0 please contact me directly to receive a download (kyle at macappware.com). We are happy to be working with MacUpdate to provide freebie bundle customers with an app to replace the developer who backed out, so please be patient while we work out any kinks in delivering MacOptimizer to you. Please reserve reviews for any problems or user experience you have with using the actual software.

Thank you,

Go to your profile to "Purchases", choose Mac Optimizer (or any other app from the Bundle), you will find the download link at the bottom of the page.

Like dp8 describes some posts down below, your purchase receipt for the MU Freebie Bundle has been updated with a download link. It resides near the bottom of the page on a yellow highlighted section called 'Special Instructions'.

Thanks MU and 128bit Technologies!

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

It is a replacement for some Koingo software because the developer backed out. MacUpdate was good enough to provide our software to take its place.

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

OK, downloaded from elsewhere.

As people are noting, this roll-out is a massive cluster.

Anyway, for Balanchine and Kylie (below):

Non-resizable window, counter-intuitive layout, all-or-none selections, typographical errors, and buggy interface (selections disappearing when 'apply' selected, so you don’t know if they are completing, or your selections have reset and you need to do it again) …

Maybe its an OS thing (I am using the latest).

But I would definitely stick with OnyX. Free, and a much more polished, tried and tested app, on all the above counts.

Dan-D. had trouble on 10 Nov 2013
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?

Go to your profile.
Click purchases (https://www.macupdate.com/members/purchases/).
Click MacOptimizer 2.0.
You should be able to find the download link under 'Special Instructions'.

The link is http://dl.macupdate.com/prod/MacOptimizer.zip—not sure if I'm supposed to post it here. Anyways, hope this helps!
