This is one of the best utilities I've ever purchased. It does its job perfectly to the point I don't even have to monitor it any longer. On an old 2011 iMac I have no app crashes any longer from using graphic intensive applications. Just like the Showtime Rotisserie, you just set it and forget it! The UI is simple and understandable. The preferences are easily explained so you know exactly how to set it up. There can be no mistakes here. This app is worth every penny, I purchased for two stations. If you want to regain your memory from intense apps apps AND have it managed beautifully, just buy this.

The beat app of its type without question! The only issue and it only occurs when doing an Extreme Clean is that it will occupy 95% plus of your CPU. On the other hand it will free up memory when everything else tells you that you are bottoming out.

MC3 is VERY INACCURATE when calculating RAM usage for Safari.

It usually reads between 700-800-MB for Safari when it’s actually using 8.5 GB as MC2 accurately shows. Right now it reads 800.45 MB, while v2 says 9.27 GB.

That’s a tremendous and inexcusable difference!

I thought maybe it was just the latest version or two, but I reinstalled a few older versions and they ALL read incorrectly. But v2 displays the correct usage as soon as it starts.

Thunderbird readings are identical for both versions and the reading for Path Finder is within a few MBs of each other. Both display the same usage in the Menu Bar, despite the drastic differences in the main window.

Obviously theres a conspicuous bug that’s not being addressed since v2 is accurate.

New version looks the same but has a newly-designed preferences window and some additional new features that are nice, like "auto clean after a memory hogging app is closed." Although I just began using this version, I never had anything but praise for the last one, so I’m rating it anyway. Anyone who thinks Macs are excellent at memory management so these apps are unnecessary is deluded. Even with 16 GB of RAM my free memory would fall below 3 GB free daily if not for this app freeing some up. And does it automatically when free RAM falls too low, unlike some apps that user activation. Keeping my free memory above 4 GB helps ward off a lot of beachballs.

Not clear to me What is the difference between the paid version and free version ? As it is, the free version, seems to be all my iMacs ( 2009 and 2014 edition ) require.

While I truly appreciate what this app does -- and thus, I purchased the "Extreme Clean" version of this same app in the Mac App Store -- I feel that it is a bad move on the part of the developer to charge additional fees in order to access the extra themes. I can understand if the developer might want to charge an additional fee for extra themes for the free version of Memory Clean, but even then, it should be a one-time fee which covers ALL themes, and NOT an additional fee for each individual extra theme. However, for users who have ALREADY purchased the "Extreme Clean" version of Memory Clean, it is my view that extra themes should be freely included in any future updates of the app. To charge more for what should really be a natural part of the update flow is a bit ludicrous, and perhaps greedy as well. Yes, the "Extreme Clean" version of Memory Clean is rather cheap -- thank you for that -- nevertheless, charging extra just to change the colors in the already-purchased version of your app does not sit well with me, and I think that others will tend to agree with me. There are many developers -- including developers of free apps -- who will change their app's icon, or add additional theme options to it, who don't charge a penny. This, in my view, is a smarter, more positive marketing approach which will attract more users. Charging extra should be reserved for major product version updates and significant functionality improvements, and not just for the ability to change a few colors, in my view. Thanks for listening.
