What happens at the end of 12 months? Does it cease to work? Or just no more updates? What? Why don't they explain it? And then what we have here is yet another Windows developer porting an app that "cleans" or "optimises" or offer features that can be had for cheaper or free elsewhere.

I have owned Macs since the 80's and even provided Apple support for almost 5 years. I found this program installed on a relatives computer, who asked for assistance3 resolving an issue. FYI the trial period is not fully functional ( Good news for my Aunt) . For example if you are attempting to remove duplicate files during the "trial" you are prompted to register and then you are only allowed to remove approx 33% of these files without purchasing the subscription. Fair enough! Now for the serious issues encountered, I found that approximately of these 25% of the results were not actual duplicates, they were files with similar names! For Example, a plugin file was installed in the user library and the other in the system root library. This so called duplicate was designed to work in this manner! Furthermore, , when attempting to use the clean function. It provided a list of legitimate binary files to remove. For example Firefox.app!!!? and many other legitimate programs. ( not parts of this programs such as foreign language documents....the full program! I created this account to warn others to avoid this program. As others have stated there are much better programs available and for free. You can also perform these steps manually there are many options built into OS X itself to resolve issues. without having to rely on a 3rd party program that will delete your files and remove your applications.

Hi Shiny22, When you purchase a MacReviver license, you get unlimited use of the product, unlimited updates and unlimited premium support. Once the license expires after a year, users can either renew their license (typical with most software) at a discounted price or choose to discontinue and uninstall the software. We have a dedicated team of Mac Development experts who have come together to create MacReviver and are constantly working to improve the features, benefits and value offered by MacReviver. That being said, we do encourage users to try other free alternatives. We hope this helped address your concerns.

So what the post from the developers tells us is that you don't get unlimited anything, you get limited everything. It's limited by time. After 12 months pony up again (at what price?) to get more of the same, limited support, limited use of the product, limited updates. Or stop using the app. And no, renewing after a year is not typical with most software, in fact it's incredibly rare in the Mac world. But then, as Windows developers wandering into the Mac world, they'd hardly be aware of that. Oddly, I read their webpage and know what? I can't find a single place where they encourage users to try other free alternatives.

Hello again, Thanks for your comments. The terms of purchase are clearly listed on the MacReviver purchase page below: http://www.reviversoft.com/macreviver/product-purchase/ It is limited by time but we offer all our users the option to renew at very reasonable prices. However, your feedback is well noted and we will eventually offer better pricing and license terms as we continue to grow. Regardless of this, MacReviver users can still download the latest updates and contact our support team for assistance. As I'm sure you've noticed on our site, we also offer free informative and community driven resources to help PC and Mac users. We'd like to reiterate that Mac users are free to try MacReviver, see how they like it and switch to a different app or other free alternatives if they aren't happy with the product. If you have any additional questions or feedback, please drop us a line at support@reviversoft.com Have a great day.

I've looked at the developer's website and cannot find any information as to cost for the annual renewal. I agree with Shiny22 that this method of payment is not common in the Mac world. Normally, when one purchases a product, minor releases for the same version are provided at no charge. Only when there is an upgrade to a new version is there then a charge, normally at a reduced price for the upgrade. Subscription utilities are rare in the Mac community with the exception of virus detection software. With all the excellent utilities available for Mac, none the least of which is the excellent Cocktail, I would be disinclined to purchase MacReviver.

Hi Kenm22, Thanks for your comments! At this time, the cost of renewal is the same as the initial purchase price which is $29.99/yr. This includes updates, upgrades & premium support. Per my previous comment, we do offer the option to renew at discounted prices and extend special offers on occasion. Cocktail is definitely a great app for the Mac and we think users should check out MacReviver along with the other apps on offer to pick the one they like the most. MacReviver is a constantly evolving product and we intend to act on the feedback we receive to make it more user friendly, feature rich and deliver more value over time.

I've paid for Cocktail once, in 2003, when it became available on OS X. I'm currently using OS X 10.7.5. ONYX and Maintenance have always been free, though I can't say I know how the developer does it. He also makes and maintains Deeper for free, an app that enables customizing of many OS X settings. These utilities, among others, provide a GUI for functions built into OS X that would otherwise require Terminal to access. I've only paid twice since 2004 for TinkerTool System. I've paid once for SuperDuper since 2008. Once for Carbon Copy Cloner (it was originally free). Twice, I think, for Drive Genius in six years. I've been using TechTool Pro since 2002 and have paid for 4 upgrades in 12 years. Disk Warrior twice in 10 years. The subscription model for Mac utilities has only become popular in the last few years, primarily among new developers who apparently do not have adequate financing to support their development efforts (it's also possible they have been infected by standard practices among Windows developers, which is why many Mac users view them with suspicion). They commonly snare novice or naive users who don't know any better. I can't imagine an experienced Mac tech falling for these schemes. MacUpdate has been in a long-running feud with Koingo, a software distributor, over their pricing policies, which are incredibly complex. Most of their software is subscription based, which has offended a great many people, including me. Though I have continued to pay for MacPilot, which I find particularly useful. The one exception to the rule about subscriptions is security software, which has grown in complexity to meet the growing need for computer security. Many of these have required an annual fee for a long time now. And it could be said that such fees are justified because security is a moving target - so much so that even Apple had to begin to provide enhanced security features in OS X starting with Lion. Still, if you just need the basics, anti-malware protection, there are a number of free products available from reputable developers. Though the quality of security software varies and not necessarily based on the price so you should definitely study up before paying anything for them. Removing an underperforming free utility is relatively painless so the risk is less serious. What gives these subscription utility developers their fly-by-night smell is that they never mention the fact up front that they require an annual fee. You certainly never see such information on their MacUpdate pages. Usually you have to read the comments and reviews to find the bad news. No doubt developers are afraid that letting us know from the start would scare off potential customers. At the same time, obscuring the information makes the well informed reader suspicious, even hostile, as can be seen here. Disclosing the annual fee only on the purchase page is hardly up front. If people knew from the product's home page that they would have to pay such fees, most would never get to the purchase page. Which, of course, explains why they don't tell you sooner. What really tipped the balance here, though, is ReviverSoft's claim that annual license renewal is typical with most software. As I indicated above, that is patently false. Likewise, if anyone does take their advice to compare MacReviver with other products like Cocktail, they will steer well clear of MacReviver. Their suggestion to compare products is disingenuous at best. One wonders who they think they're fooling. They apparently have a low opinion of our intelligence, both individually and collectively - or, as I said, they are aiming at novice and naive users who, they think, won't see through their BS. Good luck with that. For one thing, MacUpdate caters to experienced users who are clearly not ReviverSoft's target audience. Blowing smoke on this site is guaranteed to be exposed for what it is. Not knowing that is just plain stupid. Which pretty much tells you all you need to know about ReviverSoft.

Dear Jefferson and the MacUpdate community, I apologize if my comments offended you as it was most certainly not my intention. Our aim at ReviverSoft is to become the trusted destination for customers who want to find out how to keep their computer running at it's best. A big part of our ability to achieve this is by earning the trust, respect and recommendation of the savvy community. Yes, we produce software (both paid and free) but we also produce a lot of free content including how-to articles, instructional videos, thought pieces and more to help customers learn about their computers and also perform a lot of maintenance tasks themselves, if they feel comfortable enough to do so. There are a large number of computer users who just don't feel comfortable to perform these tasks themselves and we aim to produce useful, safe and trustworthy tools to perform these tasks for them. Rather than comparing our products I should have focused on why we stand by our products and services. We invest a lot of resources to develop our software (and content), and to continue to develop our software (and content). We have a detailed and extensive development road map for our software that includes the introduction of more features and additional tools. We also continually review our user experience, and take customer feedback on board to give them a better experience. Incidentally, one of the items is related to transparency of available features in the product between trial and unrestricted modes. This being said, there is a major UI design update coming later in the year. So, while I cannot comment specifically about other companies in our space, I can categorically say that we do invest heavily (and will continue to invest heavily) in our products and other resources we make available to the community. The constructive comments from the savvy community are very much welcomed as to how we can make our products and user experience better, so thank you in advance. I know we won't always be able to please everyone, but we do sincerely try our best to listen to and take on board all comments to try and make our business better. We welcome the comments on forums such as these or directly at suggestions@reviversoft.com. I hope this gives a little more insight into our business, our philosophy and what we are trying to achieve. Thanks and apologies again for any offense in earlier posts. Sincerely, ReviverSoft
