As a card carrying member of the Mac community there are times when I want to do something to my Mac that Apple obviously doesn’t want Mac users to do.
Can you say, customization? Can you say, tweak? Can you say, tinker?
Apple is much more into set it and forget it these days, hence the new Macs with Retina display are monsters to upgrade and service. Short of rearranging icons in the Dock and adding custom photos to the Desktop, it’s apparent Apple loves their OS X creation so much they don’t want mere mortals to tinker, tweak, or customize.
That’s revolting. So, are you ready for a little revolting of your own?
Point and click.
Onyx gives you nine buttons, each with options to do this or that, ranging from basic maintenance to cache cleaning.
Maintenance, on the other hand, focuses on what you think it does. System maintenance of a number of tasks, including permissions repair, script running, cache deletion, and more.
What about all those customization tricks Mac users brag about? That’s what you get in Deeper.
It opens up dozens of hidden functions for the Mac’s Finder, Dock, QuickTime, Safari, iTunes, Mail, Spotlight, and other Apple apps.
Deeper will give you plenty of opportunity to try different settings on your Mac, few of which are available in System Preferences.
All three– Onyx, Maintenance, and Deeper– perform basic Mac tasks or simply toggle on and off various functions already built-in to your Mac, so restoring back to defaults is merely a click away.
There may not be a simpler, less expensive, less complicated way to tinker, tweak, customize or optimize your Mac than these three apps.
