MacCleanse is a powerful application geared towards purifying your system and reclaiming hard disk space. Fully compatible with the latest version of Mac OS X! In only seconds, it can perform over fifty tasks which could take hours to perform manually. Safely erase caches, empty logs, clear cookies, forget web histories, locate unused and old files, and more. MacCleanse won't miss a thing and could reclaim hundreds of megabytes, if not gigabytes, of storage.

Going above and beyond the call of duty, MacCleanse provides detailed information on each item it cleanses, and can even wipe files with US Department of Defense level security. After a scan is complete, never worry about deleting something automatically by mistake. MacCleanse provides a detailed list of all items it intends to clear before the operation completes, and allows you to uncheck any to leave untouched. Also run it automatically on a weekly schedule with a preset list of items to erase so you won't even have to think about it.

It is an ideal solution when shopping for gifts, cleansing the system after someone else has used it, when preparing to sell your computer, or just for reclaiming wasted disk space. But, most importantly, ensure your personal information is out of reach.

MacCleanse also contains enhanced features for specific applications like Acquisition, Adium, AIM, aMSN, Azureus, Bit Torrent, Colloquy, FireFox 2 & 3, iCab, iChat, ICQ, Internet Explorer, Mozilla, MPlayer, MSN Messenger, Netscape, OmniWeb, Opera, Preview, QuickTime, Safari, Skype, Transmission, Unison, Xtorrent, and Yahoo Messenger. These enhanced features allow you to pick and choose what exactly to remove from the application - be it only auto-fill values from Safari or the recent download history in Xtorrent.

Worth it, but could be better

MacCleanse is definitely worth using to free up space. It is straight forward and has a clean user interface. It’s also very fast. My only complaint is that as in all things technical, even though they try harder than most to provide technical guidance, their explanations are a little lacking for the novice. So when you first start it up, the first step is not obvious. There’s a spinning wheel…is it doing something? Am I supposed to let it configure or configure it myself? Dare I stop it? So far as I can tell the spinning wheel meant nothing. So I hit the configure button and then the scan button and all went smoothly. But the first scan of “what” is just not obvious. Once you do it, of all utility junk files, you get the idea you’re supposed to work your way through all the tabs. But the developers could easily put in a few instructions on the first page.

Anyway, it works well, and allows a high degree of user control over the files you want deleted which is great.

Highly recommend it.

TERRIBLE developer: poor support and very VERY greedy.

Bought this app through the Mac App Store as a convenient way to avoid having to deal with the expensive and annoying hassle of dealing with the developer’s licensing system, both in expense and in aggravation. Things worked fine until today, when the app started crashing immediately on start. It won’t even get to its main window before bombing out. I regret ever having dealt with Koingo Software in the first place, which has been one of my go-to software providers for many years now. Never again! Save yourself the trouble: whenever you see the Koingo Software name, run in the opposite direction. Any replacement you can find is better than having to deal with Koingo.
