I was going to make my comment directly to the developer, but there's no way to do so without creating an account to log in to - which I consider an invasion of privacy. So I'll post here instead. On the whole this appears to be a good app, though it duplicates much of what has been done elsewhere. The biggest problem is that, unlike most such apps, there is no indication on the tab (task) bar which tab is selected. This is a significant usability issue and violates standard practice norms. Also, on the lists of options, it's not easy to tell whether Yes or No is enabled. I suppose the developer chose this method of option selection to differentiate his app from the competition, but that's not a good enough reason for making it harder to use. The standard format is to have a column of check-boxes for Yes and one for No. You can tell which is selected for each item by which column is checked. And, finally, the maintenance tab does not list the tasks it will perform, which is a significant oversight in my opinion. For these reasons I cannot see this app as a viable alternative to TinkerTool, Onyx or Maintenance. The one exception is the option it offers to restart from the Setup Assistant. This could be useful if you are cleaning up a Mac to transfer ownership and you want to create a new short user name at the same time you're setting up an Admin account for the new owner. Doing this manually is a tedious process (described by Topher Kessler on MacFixIt at http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57559319-263/how-to-quickly-restore-a-missing-admin-account-in-os-x/). I don't know of any other utility that offers this function - and I may keep MacMaintenance around just for this.

Hi George. Thanks for your review. Would you be able to elaborate on your expectations and why you were disappointed? I know there is always room for improvements and I am more than happy about constructive feedback and feature requests. Please let me know if you want to share some specific ideas or other feedback.

I finally found the serial number (not labeled) in small print in my MacUpdate e-mail receipt. I was not in the web receipt. It would not copy with a keyboard shortcut (Command-C) but required me to use the Copy command in the contextual menu (right-click) and the Past command in the contextual menu. So I was finally able to get the app to work, though, as has been said, the options are available elsewhere for free in Onyx. The only thing, as I said, that might be useful is to restart from the Setup Assistant, which could be very helpful when you're passing off your Mac to a new user—providing you reinstalled the system first to erase your personal data. That would, of course, require reinstalling MacMaintenance on the new system. And, of course, you'd need to show the new user where the option is. Oh, and there's one other feature: it can set up the two processes that enable your Mac to used as a web server. The stars in my review don't reflect the incredible difficulty in getting the app from MacUpdate, which is a total waste of time and should be avoided at all costs. The Mac App Store is far simpler and more preferable. Maybe MacUpdate costs less than the MAS, but it's use is a costly disincentive. YMMV.

I purchased Macmaintenance thru MacUpdate but it wouldn't download a registered copy. So I'm left with the trial version downloaded separately that requires a serial number, that MacUpdate didn't give me. A serious catch22. I'll never buy another app through Mac Update. It's too complex and too unreliable.

Hi Jefferson. Please let me know if you were able to resolve this issue. After purchasing a license you should receive a serial number. If not, please either get in touch with MacUpdate or with me so that we can provide a serial number for you!

Developer: Oh no you can't. No product key is offered and no registered download is available. Avoid this app. Whatever the app's worth, the purchase procedure is too complex and doesn't work.

@ developer: Thanks for your prompt reply. Re: Tabs - most other utilities, including Cocktail, TinkerTool, Onyx, Deeper, MacPilot, to name only a few, highlight tabs - primarily by making them appear as if they are depressed when selected. Whether you can deconstruct one of those apps to see how it's done I don't know. But somehow they manage it. It's a common enough feature to be a default standard, if not an official one. Because it is so common, it is expected behavior, so much so that its absence is remarkable - and an impediment to usability. If you are looking to make your app stand out from the rest, the way to do that is through the features you implement, not by deviating from interface norms in a way that degrades usability. Not that some creativity is necessarily a bad thing, but the app's functionality should still be obvious. In the maintenance tab I suggest a list of procedures rather than burying them in text. If you want to explain them - any that are not explained elsewhere in your app - that should not impede the readability of the list. Anyway, that's my two cents, for what it's worth. If you want to continue this dialog in private, see my MacUpdate user profile - my e-mail address is on my web site.

For most users this kind of software is completely unnecessary. Just use Disk Utility to repair privileges. No need for this. Completely obsolete. This is just all those spam-ads on flash-heavy websites telling you you need something to repair stuff when in fact you don't.

Nope I think you didn't read the notes tab in the application. It's not about "repairing stuff" but about changing preferences to let them become the way you like it. The only obsolete thing here is your comment. If you don't like an app, just don't use it!
