The folks at MacPaw are celebrating the 10th anniversary of its popular software, CleanMyMac, with the release of CleanMyMac X (opens in new tab). From insane speed improvements to malware removal, a new menu design, and more, this release is packed with new features that you are going to want to check out. Smart Scan is an all-in-one center that provides an analysis of how to properly optimize your Mac, including Cleanup, Protection, and Speed scanners, which you'll use all the time.

The CleanMyMac Assistant is an everyday guide that lets you know what to do next, and the new menu makes it easier to identify resource-consuming apps and more to help you increase the overall performance of your machine each day. MacPaw says that Smart Scan is now three times faster than it was on CleanMyMac 3, which is a huge improvement.

CleanMyMac X makes it easy to keep your apps up to date with the Updater, which monitors for and lets you grab the latest releases. The Malware Removal tool will keep checking your system for vulnerabilities and malicious files and remove them, so you can keep your mind at ease. This is a huge update to the popular software, which has over 5 million users, and odds are you're going to want to upgrade (opens in new tab) to get the benefits.

All existing CleanMyMac 3 users can upgrade to CleanMyMac X (opens in new tab) for 50% off, which makes it $19.98 for a year subscription or $44.97 for lifetime. If you aren't currently a user of this software, if you purchase it this week (opens in new tab) you can save 30% on the purchase, making it $27.97 for a one-year subscription for $62.96 for a lifetime purchase. These prices are good for using the software on a single Mac. If you own multiple, the company also offers special pricing for two and five machine bundles.

  • This is one of the worst pieces of software you can put on your Apple Computer. I’m really surprised iMore is doing an ad for this. It’s trash that bogs your system down and is a complete waste of space.
  • Money over everything. I mean, I think most people block ads here, so they're hurting for money. I've already left AndroidCentral for another site that's Android too, but more related to Law Enforcement... Been on iMore since it was TiPB, sad to see it come to this. At least it's not pushing a political agenda this time.

  • Big advertising dollars will get you big press.
  • I can see you guys getting paid off by a Malware company to call it "great software", but Lifehacker did too... Makes me think you guys have a parent "company"...
