MacPaw, one of our all time favorite Mac software developers, have finally announced the latest release of their popular maintenance application, CleanMyMac 3. Surpassing the popular CleanMyMac Classic and CleanMyMac 2, CleanMyMac 3 has gotten a whole new Yosemite-like makeover and monitors the performance of the user’s Mac. Additionally, this latest release also gives users advanced cleaning options for those who are more computer savvy than the common user.
Here’s quick overview and breakdown of what CleanMyMac 3 offers:
- iTunes and Mail Cleanups
Mail and iTunes can now be cleaned with CleanMyMac, including thousands of email attachments and downloads in Mail, as well as broken downloads and outdated iOS updates in iTunes.
- Maintenance and Privacy Utilities
Maintenance allows users to repair disk permissions, rebuild Spotlight, and speed up Mail. On the flip side, the Privacy feature cleans up chat logs, browser history and more across various applications.
- Health Alerts and Dashboard Features
CleanMyMac 3 also monitors the Mac’s performance and health. Performance is displayed in real time on the CleanMyMac 3 Dashboard and alerts inform users on how the hardware is holding up. Overall, a fairly useful tool to take a quick glance at every so often. Also be sure to check out the CleanMyMac review from SoftwareHow as well.
“CleanMyMac 3 is far more than just a cleaning utility. With the the third version, CleanMyMac has become a tool that helps users clean, maintain, and monitor their Mac’s health. We’ve moved from a niche cleaning application to a powerful Mac maintenance utility,” says Oleksandr Kosovan, CEO of MacPaw. “We’ve added functionality to make it more than just a Mac cleaner; CleanMyMac 3 can be used every day to maintain Mac health and performance.”
Despite all the new features and vast improvements, CleanMyMac 3 still costs $39.95, the same as CleanMyMac 2 when it was first released. That being said though, current CleanMyMac users can upgrade to CleanMyMac 3 with a pretty awesome 50% discount.
