Has your previously ultra-fast Mac seemed slower to you lately? Have you been noticing slower response and load times, or have you received warnings about running out of disk space? Macs, though they are amazing machines, are bound to the same limitation as every other computer on the market today: disk space. However, neither a sluggish computer nor low disk space necessarily means that you need a new laptop, extra equipment, or repairs. You just need to clean it up and that is where MacBooster comes in handy.
What is MacBooster 2?
MacBooster 2 is a downloadable program that serves as a tool to help you take care of and optimize your Mac computer by combining several different features into one neat and tidy program package.
The Mac Maid
The feature MacBooster is most known for is its system cleanup process. Unwanted file buildup is simply a byproduct of computer usage, but all of those unwanted files can fill up your computer surprisingly quickly. Instead of painstakingly going through every file on your computer by yourself, MacBooster scans your files for you and picks out the ones that are unnecessary or redundant. MacBooster removes 13 different types of junk: application junk files, mail attachments, trash cleanup, user downloads, system cache files, shortcuts clean, universal binaries, system log files, leftover, iOS phone cache, broken login items, language files, and iOS Software Updates.
The Mac Security Guard
MacBooster also functions as a source of privacy protection and computer security force, deleting files and data that may put your computer or your personal information a risk. Items like malicious cookies, tracking agents, malware, and viruses.
The Mac Steroid
One of the most common complaints about any computer, laptop or desktop, is that over time, they tend to slow down and become sluggish and non-responsive. MacBooster acts as a performance-enhancer, accelerating your processing speed by cleaning caches, releasing occupied RAM, and fixing disk permissions that can cause a Mac to lag.
The Mac Bouncer/Enforcer
Did you know that even when you “completely uninstall” programs and apps not all of the associated files are removed? They’re like the crazy ex-lover who keeps leaving strands of his/her hair taped to your front door just so “you’ll always remember” them. Of course, the latter can be combated in several ways, such as restraining orders or a beefy security team—consider MacBooster 2 your personal computer bouncer and enforcer. It deletes the remnants of unwanted programs and apps and ensures that no trace of them is left. It also eradicates duplicate files, searches for duplicate pictures, and alerts you to the presence of large files that could be deleted for a sizeable space gain.
Slow boot-up times are a constant source of irritation for most computer users, as we lack the attention span, patience, or free time to wait 15 minutes while the computer moves at glacial speeds to turn itself on. If this is an issue with which you are plagued, MacBooster can pinpoint the culprits causing the delay in boot-up time, and shows you how to tweak their settings so that they no longer interfere with powering-on process.
Currently, MacBooster is offered in three forms– Lite, Standard, and Premium– the details of which are described below:
- Lite: $39.95
The Lite package comes with a lifetime license for one Mac only.
- Standard: $59.95
The Standard package provides three lifetime licenses (you could outfit the whole family!), as well as malware and virus protection, a Mac Tweaks guide, and a full system clean and boost.
- Premium: $88.95
The Premium option provides five lifetime licenses, all of the benefits of the Standard package, plus 24/7 customer services and priority support.
MacBoosteroffers a two week free trial and, should you decide to purchase the program, comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee, giving you ample time to decide whether or not it was worth the money.
It has been rightfully noted that the services offered by MacBooster are also offered by programs that are free. While this is true, MacBooster and those programs have on major difference: very few, if any, free programs offer an entire well-functioning suite of tools for Mac care; in contrast, for a reasonable fee, you can own a lifetime license for one program that covers all of your Mac-care needs. Rather than having to open five or six different programs separately, the MacBooster user only has to open one program and instantly has access to an interface that allows them to navigate and utilize the different tools available.
Some computer-scanning programs can take hours to complete their task, but MacBooster 2 completes its scanning process in a much shorter amount of time. It is not instantaneous, of course, but it is quite quick when compared to other similar applications.
Speaking of the interface, it is extremely easy to use and navigate; it is clearly laid out with descriptions and details about the different tools, which proves quite handy to novices. It is Dick-and-Jane simple and a good-looking and visually appealing program to boot.
Of course, the most important aspect of this product is whether or not it works as advertised. Is MacBooster 2 as helpful as the creators claim? In short, yes. MacBooster 2 does a phenomenal job of finding junk files, malware, and all other kinds of virtual trash and eliminating them. This program really can help you free up space on your computer as well as speed up its response time and optimize its processing ability.
Lack of Explanation
While this may not be a deterrent to the technologically-savvy and experienced users of similar programs, for a rookie, the lack of explanation regarding the types of files that are being deleted means potentially eradicating information that you actually need. This problem is compounded by the following issue:
No Backup Function
If you are a novice at utilizing programs like MacBooster 2, then you may very well be afraid of deleting something important by accident because you are unaware of the role it plays within your PC. For this reason, it is advisable that those who are not 100% sure of their ability to understand their scan results backup their information before proceeding to clear out what one hopes are junk files and malware. Many scanning programs offer a backup service, however, MacBooster 2 does not, leaving the beginning user with only hopes and prayers that they have not just deleted a vital program. Of course, this danger can be minimized by being willing to educate yourself and consult Google when you have a question about the function of a specific program.
Help is Limited
If you have a question about how the program itself works, or if you encounter an issue that you cannot remedy, unless you are a premium member, be prepared to find very little help. The User Manual is laughable and takes you to the product sales page, where the only way to engage the company to aid you in resolving your problem is through email. The provided FAQ (whose link is buried and hard to spot at the bottom of the sales page) is even more unhelpful.
While some novice users may find it tedious to fully research the types of files that are marked as extraneous, the fact remains that MacBooster 2 is a powerful tool that can enhance your Mac’s performance, restoring it to a point where it almost runs like it did when it was brand new. The interface is user-friendly at all skill-levels and processes themselves run smoothly and without issue. If you are experiencing technology trouble in the form of a sloth-like Mac computer, consider signing up for the 14 day trial and if that is not enough, rely on the 60-day money-back guarantee available after purchase to give you more time to spend with the program and see how it can boost your Mac experience.
