Hey Product hunters! 10 years ago I developed the very first CleanMyMac. Back then, I had no idea that it will change my life, mark the beginning of MacPaw, and become the most popular Mac cleaning utility among millions of users worldwide. Today, I’m extremely thrilled to launch CleanMyMac X which is X times faster, sleeker and smarter. Our team has packed the latest CleanMyMac with new useful features, tons of improvements and wrapped it in a mind-blowing interface to transform a boring system cleanup into a fun and thrilling experience. Enjoy the power of X and let us know what you think!

@kosovan I've been a long time user of CleanMyMac. Congratulations on the quality of the product. I remember the first time I used your product I thought that it was like the bloated and malwareish products that existed on the Windows ecosystem but I was so wrong. I'm glad for the continuous development of CleanMyMac. I will be buying this. Thanks

Hey, Product Hunters! As a CleanMyMac X designer, I’m really proud with the app! With smart and self-learning algorithms under the hood, the app stays incredibly simple on the outside. There are fluid live-like animations and a plethora of visual metaphors surrounding the process of cleaning. Atmospheric themes which flow into one another, subtle shapes and sounds — everything to keep you glued to the screen while you are optimizing your Mac. CleanMyMac X is what you get when industrial design thinking breaks into the software utility world. What do you guys think of the new design of CleanMyMac X?

@dmitry_novikov Really love the news design and interface! 😻

@melnyk_dmytro Terrific new version! Great new features as well. Can the Malware detection and removal be automated? And are the Malware definitions updated regularly?
Melnik Dmitriy
Maker
@t55 Hi and thank you! Currently, Malware detection works as scan on demand module with regular definitions updates. We are considering developing realtime automated detection and removal scanner in the future.

According to our research, there are a lot of non-pro users who need help when maintaining their Macs. With this in mind, we’ve built a totally new, simple experience. You’ll be surprised at how stunningly fast and intuitive the new CleanMyMac X is.

I'm a long time user of CleanMyMac and will definitely upgrade as this version looks great (brilliant work guys), but can I ask a couple of questions about the "One-Time Purchase – Valid for CleanMyMac X" option… how long do you see this version being current? I wouldn’t like to pay the upgrade price for "One-Time Purchase – Valid for CleanMyMac X" only to find that "CleanMyMac XI" is released after a year, as I would have been better just purchasing the "1-Year Subscription". Not being stingy, just looking for some clarification please.

@craigcpaterson Historically the release cycle of Major CleanMyMac versions is 3 years. But it very much depends on the new technologies and OSs on the market, and other trends, that we have to support. So we can not guarantee at the moment that this timeline will be kept the same.
kosovan
Maker
@craigcpaterson But I would rather recommend do subscribe to a yearly plan, which will include any future updates.
Craig Paterson
@kosovan thanks very much for your clarification. Yearly plan it is then ;-)
Ton
@kosovan As much as I love CleanMyMac (X and all the earlier editions) the upgrade price is pretty steep. 50% off upgrade price certainly seems nice, but that's only the first year. So if CleanMyMac X becomes CleanMyMac X1 after three years you pay 100 euro instead of the one-time 45 euro. Will these 'New features regularly' only show up in the subscription version?
Václav Slavík
@kosovan @t55 Yeah, that part is messaged poorly, it gives the impression the upgrade discount is for the entire price, not its first slice. And the nudge towards subscription with "New features regularly" is really, really unclear.
kosovan
Maker
@t55 @vslavik At the moment we don't have a clear roadmap for future major releases. We will develop and improve both products as one. But at some point in the future, it will make sense to release a new product based on newer technologies, and this is where we can commit to delivering this functionality for free to subscription customers only.
Václav Slavík
@kosovan How are your customers supposed to make an informed decision, then? Sounds like it's best to wait with updating until *you* make up your mind about what it is that you're selling... And I say that as somebody who always updated CleanMyMac immediately.
Ton
@kosovan @vslavik I'm a big, big fan of CleanMyMac but this is confusing. It's logical that you don't know what features will make it in the next major version of CleanMyMac X. No problem with that. But the question is: it looks like there will be two versions of CleanMyMac X - one with 'new features regularly' and one without 'new features regularly'. The general Mac upgrade system always has been: same new features for everything until the next paid upgrade. These days the subscription model brings you all the features for a smaller price per month, or all the features for a higher price until the next paid upgrade. CleanMyMac X seems to have a new model - only the subscription version gets the new features, the paid version only gets 'minor updates & bug fixes'. Can you shed a light on this? Will the paid version get the same features as the subscription? That is: until the next big new CleanMyMac update? One other question: what happens when you cancel your subscription? Do you still have a version that will be maintained with basic functionality like updated malware definitions and updated versions of the CleanMyMac removal definitions database?
Ton
@kosovan Any chance you can answer my question? Not sure what version to buy... /cc @vslavik

Congrats on the launch! After watching the ad I must say that you need to include a "new mac"-scented candle to the package 😀

Wow, seems to an awesome update. Any special offers for product hunters? (Not the usual offer that is running on your website ;) )
Cody McLain
I paid for the upgrade but found it not moving after a few minutes so I canceled it, but if I tried to do it again was told I already purchased it, yet I have no email receipt of the transaction, see I was indeed charged the amount and apparently no way of upgrading to the X I paid for. What should I do?

@codymclain We are very sorry, we are experiencing some delays in license delivery due to high load right now. The licenses will be emailed with a slight delay during next several hours :(

There was mentioned it can detect incomplete downloads. I'm unable to find the section where they are in the app. The interface is extremely eye catching. 👍

@csaba_kissi Currently CleanMyMac doesn't detect all types of incomplete download, only movies/music downloads done with iTunes. But we'll consider doing it in the next updates. Thanks for suggestion.
Csaba Kissi
@ivira It can help a lot. I assume I'm not the only one.
