Or, come from a decade of experience on Unix or Linux and feel at home on OS X. Or, simply install the right Mac utility– the one that makes you a power user, and gives you geek superpowers disguised as point and click.
It’s that easy to wow your friends and co-workers.
Pilot To Power With MacPilot
As simple and elegant as OS X can be for the great masses of Mac users, underneath all that point and click eye candy is a robust, powerful, feature-laden Unix machine.
The only problem with unleashing all that power, and freeing up the many dozens of the hidden features in OS X, is knowing how.
MacPilot is the Mac app that knows how. And it’s all point and click with Mac-like simplicity and elegance.
Built into the hundreds and hundreds of features in MacPilot are ways to make your Mac run better and faster, unlock secret features, and customize the Mac in more ways than you thought possible.
Yes, point and click is the name of the MacPilot game. Open it up and select the General tab. The left sidebar is loaded with apps and each one has dozens of additional functions.
The Disks tab displays information about storage devices connected to your Mac and gives you utilities for file permissions, volume repairs, and much more.
Login items looks like the Mac’s System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items on performance enhancing steroids. Add apps, scripts, or functions with a click.
MacPilot gives you another way to open and view the Mac’s system logs. There’s an option to manage Spotlight and select specific volumes.
Some of the real power is displayed in the Tools tab which unlocks hidden features in OS X, performance system maintenance, and much more.
MacPilot’s interface may seem daunting at first, but that’s merely because the app contains hundreds of features, settings, and configurations.
For example, all you need is a click to display hidden files. Check the character map for each font. Adjust batter settings for MacBook models.
Other settings let you boot your Mac into either 32-bit or 64-bit mode. There’s even an array of built-in debug options to track down problem areas.
Other MacPilot functions work on a variety of apps included on a Mac, such as Dashboard, Disk Utility, Contacts, the Dock, the Finder, Calendar, iPhoto, iTunes, Mail, Safari, QuickTimes Player and many others.
UPDATE: MacPilot’s latest version, 5.0, just hit the streets. It adds more tweaks for third party apps and the Mac’s built-in apps. If you’re ready to explore your Mac’s inner secrets and open up functionality that can improve your over all experience, MacPilot is a good way to start.
