Dr. Cleaner will help optimize your Mac for free, and making the jump to the more extensive Dr. Cleaner Pro only costs $19.99.
If your Mac is starting to feel slow, or you’re simply trying to find more space on your drive, there’s a simple app that can declutter your Mac on the double. Dr. Cleaner will help optimize your Mac for free, and making the jump to the more extensive Dr. Cleaner Pro only costs $19.99.
Once you download and install Dr. Cleaner, it will helpfully sit in your menu bar showing how much RAM you’re using. Giving it a click will also display your CPU usage, network activity, and a readout of how much space your junk files are taking up. Optimizing your memory usage or cleaning out the junk requires just a button press, but launching the System Optimizer gives you even more options.
In the free version, the Optimizer lets you scan for detritus like old logs, search out the biggest files hogging your drive, and visualize how much space folders and files are taking up. If you’re frequently struggling with memory management, or running low on storage, these tools will come in handy.
Stepping up to Dr. Cleaner Pro, you’ll gain access to three additional features. First, the Duplicate Files function lets you scan directories for identical files, and easily extinguish the waste. Next, app manager helps you completely uninstall unwanted applications, and helps you keep your favorite apps up to date in a snap. Finally, File Shredder will securely erase just about any file or folder you choose.
Even if you start out with the free download, you can choose to upgrade at any time. Simply click on the menu bar icon, select “Upgrade,” and it’ll take you right to the Mac App Store to finish your purchase.
