We’ve been given the chance to test out some software from MacPaw and the first bit of software we’ve been putting to the test is CleanMyMac 3
CleanMyMac 3 does exactly what it suggests. It cleans your Mac. The software scans your Mac for System Junk, Photo Junk, Mail Attachments, iTunes Junk and the Trash Bin. It scans all these for junk that’s no longer needed on your Mac such as log files, caches, language files, old iOS device backups and of course removes all your trash from the Trash Bin. When we first put it to the test we cleared up over 5GB of used disk space which is disk space that’s very much needed!
Another great feature is the option to remove Apps from your Mac and ensure they’re gone completely and nothing is left behind.
It effectively deeply uninstalls your apps that you wish to remove therefore clearing up more disk space.
Another great feature I like is Shredder. It’s an option to securely erase data from your Mac which is ideal if you have sensitive information or documents on your computer giving you a nice deep clean. You no longer have to worry about anyone being able to retrieve data you thought you had deleted from your hard drive.
Previously I had been using Dr Cleaner by Trend Micro and while this software is also great I find the interface and features in CleanMyMac 3 much better and nicer.
The app also features a RAM cleaner which cleans up RAM cache ensuring you can make use of the RAM your Mac has.
It also had a monitor for HDD Space, Trash Can useage and gives you details about your Mac’s battery (if you have a MacBook)
So if english is not your first language fear not CleanMyMac 3 is still for you.
MacPaw the developers also have CleanMyPC which our Managing Editor Nathan Jorden is currently testing and will write up a review about very soon.
I’d very much recommend checking out the MacPaw website if you own a Mac!
