Phenomenal UI & Functionality

This app is one of the cleanest softwares to exist. Having both a beautiful user interface and outstanding functionality, navigation and ease of use is top tier. Major kudos to both the design team and front/back end programmers. Though it doesn't deserve a drop in rating, keep in mind that, you as the user, may have to uncheck a file every now and then that it deems as "Junk" or non-important. This lies on the user to be mindful in what the app is trying to accomplish. I file might be labled as "Junk" because of its old age, but is a file you don't want deleted. To clarify, you are able to see a rundown of all files the app is recommending to delete prior to commiting and are able to uncheck those you deem important/necessary. Maybe a thought for the dev if it isn't already being considered/tested: Integrate AI functionality akin to ChatGPT to learn more about the user and the files that resonate with them on a usage and interactive basis. With MacOS integrating Apple Intelligence later this year, this might be valuble to consider.

Hoenstly, I can see MacPaw or this app specifally being purchased by Apple in the future, transitioning this software from a standalone app and integrating it natively into the MacOS ecosystem, especially with Apple Intelligence arriving soon.

Thank you MacPaw for providing a highly funcitonal and easy to use software to keep my computer running as efficient and "clean" as possible.

Gets in between the cracks I never knew existed!!!

After many years of being a MacOS/Apple user, which goes for most technology, I have failed to recognize the complexity of virtual "footsteps" that I leave on my devices. With that being said, CleanMyMacX found things I carried with me all of these years that genuinely served no purpose; alternatively, they were a burden. I am still assessing the tried and true power that the app offers its users. But I can see a noticeable speed boost, and I feel secure that security is their #1 priority. They prove it through the use of quality and user-friendly technology.
If there is one thing I would appreciate in the near future, it would be more in-depth yet straightforward explanations of what specific technical terms mean. Admittedly, I was afraid to delete some things because they were not explained well. In my mind, I was thinking, "oooh, what does this mean? What happens if I delete it, and I should not have?"
Overall, I would recommend it.

A Joke and a waste...

Just do it yourself I guess? I downloaded this on a fairly new and barely used Macbook Pro because I needed to uninstall some apps and just wanted to have an app that would basically look out for my computer (by lookout I mean easily uninstalling apps, checking for malware, etc -literally what this app advertises) and I wanted it all in one place for ease of use and time efficency. I was using the free 7 day trial so I had access to everything. I tried more than once to uninstall apps/extensions and CleanMy said it was done, yet when I went to check "Finder" on the Macbook, the supposedly removed apps were still there and I could still open them with no problem (meaning there was no prompt such as, app is uninstalled or similar) and the app store also showed me the apps were still on my computer (meaning they said "open" instead of the cloud and down arrow symbol). I tried multiple times and the results were the same each time. Also worth noting is that this app, after claiming to have removed the apps I selected, did not tell me to restart the computer or anything and the app also never said to me "apps already have been removed" or similar when I retried the removal. Eventually I just searched "how to remove apps from my Macbook Pro" and got an answer and removed everything myself, which is great so now I know how to remove this app after I make sure the trial and subscription are canceled.
