Review by deatrapurplern

works great. - Not sure why it crashes for others or people cannot find their things. I am a new Mac user, less than 2 months, and i got it to work the first time with no problem. I have been a PC user most of my life and am still muddling my way through using Mac. This app is wonderful. I deleted all of my files from OneDrive, trying to sync them to my Mac last month and then move them to the external hard drive, but had ZERO problems with this app. I did not even need it really because my Mac is new but I figured I would get it before the price went up. I was able to free up 5GB up space. I was able to set my preferences. I read one person who lost 40 or so movies, and gave a bad review. That is not the fault of the app, that is user error, they even said, “I don’t know what I did wrong.” They did not set their preferences. Now that took me a bit to figure out because the screen just has a plus and minus sign on it. I clicked the plus sign and then I was able to set them. I played around with it (the app) before I actually deleted anything. BTW, I LOVE MY MAC! I will NEVER go back to a PC. It is taking getting used to, but once I get the hang of this baby, I will roll.

Version 1.1
Review by AndyTurning83

Messed up my apps :( - updated for v1.1 - Updated to v1.1 but too scared to attempt to run this again. Just got my Mac apps working again with the help of Apple genius. They said this app deleted vital caches that other apps required to run correctly. Be careful!!! Downloaded this today and thought I would try free up some space. What a big mistake, after running the ‘cleaning’ process, when i try to launch MS Word, Photoshop, Excel etc, i get an error saying something about license not found and the apps then quit. Not sure what to do now, but I am really stressed out. I am a PhD student and it is my first week back at college... I have a thesis I need to write and it looks like i’ll have to try reinstalling all my software. I paid $0.99 for this, but it has cost me a lot of time and hassle. I should have known better than to purchase a version 1.0 of an unheard of app. buyer beware.

Version 1.5.1
Review by sxal96

Straightforward and Simple - I originally bought this on my old MacBook Air when my boyfriend suggested it as a way to minimize the amount of space used on my computer since I only had about ~60 GB of storage I could use. Now, on my MacBook Pro with much more space on it, I use this app occasionally to get rid of garbage that just doesn’t need to be there. The interface is really simple which is great for people like myself that don’t have time to waste with a complex system just to delete some files. The price might seem a little ridiculous for something that deletes files on your computer but it does so in such a quick and efficient manner, while still giving you options on what specifically can be deleted. It’s basically paying $10 to save an immense amount of your time and it quickly pays itself off.

Best Utility App Ever - Seriously I don’t know why this app isn’t part of the OS. It’s so freaking easy to use and it does wonders for clearing space on your HD. Everyone should have this app installed on their computers. Everyone!

UPDATED Review - OLD REVIEW:Honestly I use this app all the time and it does what it says, and it does it great. I will be switching back to the old flat icon though, just a personal preference. NEW REVIEW: Still love the app as the old review says. Love the clean new icon and name.

Review by Samtherobot

Simple to use yet accomplishes the job - I’ve been looking for an app like this both on PC and Mac for years. I appreciate the ease of clearing out useless files such as the trash and cache. But where it excels is finding files that take up the most space on a drive. Helps you to find what you can get rid of that will make the most difference to disk space. Great app, keep up the good work!
