Review by samercostello

Great App by Great Team of Developers - This app is one of my favorite Menu Bar Apps, mainly because of it’s simplicity and it also just works. One small bug I’ve noticed is that the icon stays on despite Icon Visible being turned off in it’s Preferences box. It’s not a big deal, really, other than taking up a bit more space on my already stuffed Menu Bar, but I thought I should just point it out here so they can fix it soon. Other than that the app deserves a 5 star rating. It’s a very useful app, and FIPLAB should be lauded for giving us such an app for free. EDIT: They fixed the bug quite rapidly, and now the app is back to it’s usual cheerful self, and so am I :) 5 STARS ONCE AGAIN!

Version 1.4
Review by M3mph1sKyle

PLEASE bring this back as a drop-down menu!!! - Anyone who full-screens apps will know my pain. Since the app no-longer pulls down from the status bar, now it opens a seperate window that doesn’t close itself. Clicking away will close it, but also adjust every full-screen app downwards, by the size of the status bar. This app’s first version was perfect. They just added an extra, precise, click to close the window now. No reason, but now you have to click the little red X, instead of anywhere on screen. It’s a small annoyance that irks you every time, and I use this app a lot. It’s really great, otherwise. Update! They’ve started hitting me with ads for their other products, but haven’t fixed the drop down menu problem yet.

Review by Caecus1

Quick, efficient and effective - Have a lot of problems with a slow mac, this has helped significantly in that regard. I tend to go between apps, opening one after closing another and then vice versa throughout the day, my macbook pro is getting a little old technically and now gets cranky and protests with the spinning wheel nine times out of ten after this process is done so many times or if I dare to open more than one application at a time…… stumbled across mem clean 2 whilst browsing through looking for a diff kind of app, thought “why not?” tried it, love it! Really does free up the space like it says and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in the spped on my computer after usage. Thank you to the developers for this little gem, couldn’t be happier with it :)

Version 1.5
Review by Eric Global

Helped me find a problem - My iMac started crashing repeatedly. When I got Memory Clean 2 I could see which program was causing the problem when I opened it. Very helpful. I had two problems. One was overheating which another app, Temperature Guard, fixed and the other problem was a program that was sucking down all my memory. Memory Clean 2 helped me identify that and fix it. I’m running smoothly again now.

Version 1.5
Review by Old dog Paramedic

A Valuable addition to Mac users who use large apps or many apps - I’ve used Memory Clean for years. Even before “Extreme Clean” was available, this app freed up significant amounts of RAM when various apps were closed. Apple does a good job of managing RAM, but it seems not all apps give back their RAM when closed. Memory Clean recovers that very quickly. I find that Extreme Clean finds a lot more RAM; but it also runs more slowly. Memoriy Clean offers the user the option of which level of cleaning to use: the faster “Clean”, or the slower “Extreme Clean”. This is nice because I can adjust to the needs of memory or time limits.

Review by arch23dmt

Fantastic app! Quickly and efficiently frees up RAM - I have used Memory Clean for years and it is one of the greatest apps out there. Memory Clean 2 is a clean and non-cluttered update on the original version. With “Extreme Clean”, the app frees up even more RAM. I have an early 2014, 13 inch MacBook Air with a 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, and 128GB of PCIe-based flash storage. I keep all of my music on external hard drives, but even without RAM gobbling music files, I find that there is frequently less than 1GB of onboard memory that is usable. Memory Clean 2 efficiently frees up unused memory so that your Mac runs more quickly. You can set the app to clean the memory if your free memory falls below a certain threshold.

Version 1.5
Review by Nick Nameo

Been using this for years and decided it deserves a rating. - This is a fantastic app. It definately does what it says on the box. I am running a mid 2007 iMac with 4 Gb of ram. As you can imagine, my ten year old Mac has times when things can slow a bit. I have been using Memory clean since Version 1 came out, and I stuck with it for two great reasons. Reason one, it is a small program that doesnt hog resourses like some of the other apps out there do, so I never have to worry about it slowing down my Mac. Secondly, It doesn’t fluff my pillow, cut my grass, and make me coffee. I hate comapnies that keep adding bells and whistles to their applications, to the point where theey loose track of what people loved about the app to begin with. Memory Clean is still Memory Clean, period. I love that. Instead of trying to add soothing music to the app, they instead focused on improving the actual core product. (Crazy concept, right?) And the price is fair. So in a nut shell, Its small, its fast, it doesnt weight down your Mac, and its very reasonally priced. Great job to the developer. Happy Customer
