To mark the 10th anniversary of its all-purpose cleaning and maintenance app, MacPaw released version 4 of CleanMyMac in September with a new name—CleanMyMac X. In addition to a refreshed user interface and speedier cleaning, CleanMyMac X 4 introduces Smart Scan, which combines Cleanup, Protection, and Speed scanners in one action. (MacPaw is currently a TidBITS sponsor.)
The new version also now includes malware removal, a reinvented menu bar app that alerts you to system status and applications that are hogging resources, and an updater tool that monitors app updates and provides access to the latest available versions. MacPaw recently issued CleanMyMac X 4.0.4 to fix a problem with Health Notifications that could not be disabled or ignored in macOS 10.14 Mojave.
MacPaw offers two pricing options for CleanMyMac X—a $39.95 annual subscription or a one-time $89.95 purchase. If you have a license from a previous version, you’re eligible for a 50% discount ($19.98 or $44.97). Additionally, CleanMyMac X is included in MacPaw’s $9.99-per-month Setapp subscription service. ($89.95 one-time fee or $39.95 for a 1-year subscription for new purchases, $44.97 one-time upgrade or $19.98 for a 1-year upgrade subscription, free update from version 4, 66.6 MB, macOS 10.10+)
