Sensei : a swiss army knife for monitor and clean up stis Mac

Sensei, the utility swiss knife and to monitor his / her Mac, uninstall applications, sort out those that launch at startup, monitor the state of health of its battery or even observe the activity of its fans, is available for download in its first final version.

We had talked about this app a month ago, while it was in beta. One can make an opinion with the demo version, functional for two weeks. Sti author is the developer of Trim Enabler, well known of some owners of SSD who want to get all the juice out of their storage medium (it is integrated into Sensei).

As we said the first time, it is necessary to see Sensei as an aggregation of services provided by other utilities, free, not free gold already included with os X (Onyx, iStat Menu, about this Mac, activity Monitor, AppCleaner,…) and many of their functions can be found in an interface very simple to use. Sti’s nearest competitor is certainly CleanMyMac X MacPaw (the two applications have, however, their specificities).

You may have the curiosity to go to watch the activity of its fans, take a look at the load on the graphics card (a lot of statistics offered, however, are esoteric), to test the speed of its storage media, or to achieve the characteristics of an external display or the laptop.

If you do not want to go down a few steps in the hierarchy of the system folder, the tab Optimize will list the files that launch at startup — as well as those that run in the background – deposited there by third-party applications and which may be more use.

The uninstall of the applications and their dependencies scattered here and there is a feature that is often convenient. Sensei can get away with less although CleanMyMac X or the freeware AppCleaner. During two trials on Tweetbot and Microsoft Edge, the last two have been some agreement about the file to be discarded, while Sensei has obviously forgotten a handful.

CleanMyMac X, Sensei, AppCleaner : each one shows the total volume of his harvest of ” files to delete

Other information (as well as a location in English) should be provided by the application over the next updates. At least the demo allows it to judge stis usefulness is a sufficient period of time.

Sensei is sold 29 $ (26 € approx) renewable every year gold 59 $ (53 €) for a perpetual license. Discounts are available to registered users of Trim Enabler and Disk-Sensei. Each license of Sensei can be activated on 3 machines (Catalina is the minimum necessary).
