TinkerTool System 4.0 Build 141016

System utilities toolkit for effortlessly performing advanced administration tasks in order to keep an Apple Macintosh computer in tip-top shape
Most Mac OS X versions come with a collection of features that cannot be managed via the system graphical user interface, but can be easily enabled or disabled by using Terminal commands. TinkerTool System is a very easy to use Mac app that offers you the possibility to access these functionalities through an user friendly graphical interface.

Quick to install system maintenance solution for your Mac computer

To make sure the TinkerTool System capabilities are used in a responsible manner, when you first launch the application, you must provide the system administrator passkey: this way, the app ensures that the current user is qualified to make changes that can seriously affect the computer’s performance.

The application’s user interface resembles the System Preferences window, so finding your way around is quite easy: select the type of tools you want to access and the app will open a new panel organizing all the available tools into several tabs.

Perform system maintenance tasks, manage files, and adjust system or user settings

You can employ the TinkerTool System app to trigger periodic system maintenance tasks, to repair file permissions, to optimize your system, to clean up your disk by removing hidden files, log archives, orphaned files, and so on.

On top of the features that come integrated with the OS X, TinkerTool System also includes a collection of powerful tools designed to resolve, fix, troubleshoot, or repair system “bugs”, damaged accounts, and so on.

User friendly software solution that provides access to hidden Mac OS X functionalities and to other maintenance tools

TinkerTool System is great to have around if you want to access certain Mac OS X functionalities without having to use the command line: the app allows you to launch maintenance tasks via an intuitive user interface (most tools have self explanatory names).

Furthermore, TinkerTool System also includes emergency and diagnostics capabilities that can handle troubleshooting and repair operations in the same manner.

What's New in This Release:
  • A pilot release to give early adopters of OS X Yosemite the chance to use TinkerTool System already. Because Apple did not disclose all necessary documentation on Yosemite at this early time, this version only contains context help, but not the complete 180-page reference manual.
  • Version 4 focuses back on the operating system itself. All features related to third-party software or external applications have been removed. The only exception are functions for programs which had been part of OS X in the past, such as Adobe┬« Flash┬« Player or Xcode.
  • The application can now exhaust modern hardware to its limits, making full use of multi-core processors and flash/SSD storage. Depending on computer model, some features may run up to 20 times faster compared with previous versions of the software.
  • All used technologies have been modernized to comply with the latest guidelines for OS X Yosemite.
