In fact, built in and behind the scenes are a bunch of Mac actions that take place late at night to perform a wide variety of system maintenance routines. Here’s yet another system utility that Mac users can use to, well, clean up a Mac’s daily rubbish.
Yet Another System Utility
Whenever Mac app reviewers say ‘yet another blah blah blah‘ you can be certain that the latest app or utility borrows heavily from the generation previous.
So it is with Yasu. Yet another system utility that carries forward the tradition to keep your Mac lean and mean by running a variety of system level scripts as maintenance routines.
Yasu is a good app to use whenever your Mac begins to misbehave or when it seems a little wonky. Simply running Yasu through a list of options can help solve some strange behavior.
Yasu is different than a few of Mac360’s other favorites; Deeper, Onyx, and Maintenance. Unlike many utilities, Yasu won’t unlock all those OS X hidden features.
Instead, Yasu uses one simple window to give you access to a variety of maintenance options you can perform at any time.
Much of what Yasu does can also be accomplished with a little experience and knowledge of Unix, and no fear of using OS X’s built in Terminal.app.
Or, you can simply open Yasu, select the options you want to run, click OK, and grab a cold drink or a bite to eat. Yes, depending on what’s wrong with your Mac, or how many different apps you use, Yasu might take awhile to cleanup and make orderly all that’s not.
Yasu works well on OS X Mavericks and 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.7 Lion. It’s good for troubleshooting and good for regular maintenance. Allow me to classify Yasu as donationware because, well, it’s free, but the developer accepts donations.
