Though Mac is one of the safest and powerful computers available in the market today, it also needs regular maintenance and cleanup, especially after a period of use. To enhance the performance of Mac, it is a possible way to use a right Mac cleaner software. The listed below are five popular apps available in the market. We will have a look at how these top five Mac cleaners improve the efficiency of our Mac.

1. CleanMyMac

According to many customers, CleanMyMac 3 is considered to be the most popular one and value for money. It also is able to make it clear as to what needs to be exactly cleaned and what need to be left out. As it announced, it helps free up lot of valuable disk and memory space. For five Mac users the price is around 90 dollars and for single user it comes at around 40 dollars.

2. Cleaner One

For CleanMyMac, a disk cleaner, which part is the 80 percent you should have gotten for free? Is there an app that provides that 80 percent? Of course, there is. I’d like to recommend Trend Micro’s Cleaner One, Cleaner One is the ONLY all-in-one FREE App that offers Memory Optimization, Disk Cleaning and System Monitoring to keep your Mac optimized for the best performance. All functions CleanMyMac provides to its subscribers that Cleaner One also provides, while pointing out features in CleanMyMac that might create problems or aren’t that necessary for the average user.

Though not liked my many professional Mac users, there is no doubt that CCleaner goes a long way in cleaning cookies, caches, recycle bin and could play a big role in releasing lot of memory and disk space.
