128bit Technologies Announces MacOptimizer 1.2

MacAppware, a division of 128bit Technologies, announced today a new update to its speedy disk utility application for Mac OS X. MacOptimizer is an incredibly fast and efficient disk utility to quickly help you clean, repair and organize your Mac.

MacOptimizer 1.2 adds new Optimization features and enhances Desktop Genie. The new Optimization features include:

Repair Disk Permissions – If you experience problems with an application not opening, launching slowly or having problems with application plugins you may need to repair permissions. This tool is also good to run if you notice your Mac is taking longer to start up or shut down. Repair Disk Permissions only repairs files and applications that were installed using Apple’s installer package and are located on bootable volumes that have Mac OS X installed.

Empty iPhoto Trash – When you delete photos in iPhoto, the photo files are not moved to your regular Trash but iPhoto’s own Trash. The iPhoto Trash is not emptied unless you remember to do this in iPhoto, and can quickly get filled up, take up unnecessary space on your Mac and cause iPhoto to open and run slower.

MacOptimizer 1.2 also adds new file support for Desktop Genie. Desktop Genie now supports .avi file type.

Current MacOptimizer users can update by selecting Check for Updates… from the MacOptimizer menu.


No operating system is perfect, and Mac OS X is no exception. Do you have applications that keep crashing or don’t even open? Have you noticed your Mac is running slower? Are you having trouble locating files or folders on your Desktop? MacOptimizer gets your Mac back in shape with essential tools to:

Clean your system caches
Optimize your Mac
Speed up Apple Mail
Free up inactive memory
Run regular maintenance
Customize system settings
Remove unnecessary language files
Clean and organize your Desktop
And more

Even if you have a brand new Mac you can still find MacOptimizer helpful in cleaning up unnecessary language files, keeping your Desktop organized, and keeping your Mac running like new at all times. It’s better to regularly take care of your Mac rather than wait until something bad happens.
