    CleanMyMac X Is Good, Actually

    CleanMyMac X Is Good, Actually

    How do you uninstall applications on your Mac? How do you make sure deleted files are truly, fully deleted? How do you troubleshoot a poor internet connection? Chances are you're using multiple apps and utilities to complete tasks on your Mac that could all be handled by CleanMyMac X. This week, Mikah Sargent explains why CleanMyMac X — despite unfairly being lumped in with low-quality, multi-utility apps — is good, actually. The app can help you solve all sorts of problems on macOS, help you speed up your system, and make sure you've fully uninstalled apps you're looking to get rid of.

Hooray! It’s back.

Excited to get back to Hands on Mac 🖥 (and now other Apple devices too).

Catch up for 30somethings

If you were born after the second coming of Steve Jobs and own a Mac, then this is the podcast for you if you wish to make your Mac work more for you. There are so, so many internal shortcuts and features that have been around since the inception of OSx, but they are rarely documented and marginally discussed, because ‘ol-timers’ have known them since way back when. Here’s an ol timer sharing them on-screen so you can follow along. He’s humble, he’s informative, and he’s old. It’s a win-win.

There is always something new to learn
