MacPilot Editor's Review

The Mac OS contains many advanced features that can make computing a different experience altogether. However, not all Mac users are aware of such deep rooted features of the Apple OS. The usual surface customizations are what most of them remain content with. However, thinking the customization options in Mac OS remain limited in the System Preferences is a mistake. The Terminal does give you access to such hidden features in Mac OS but only advanced users prefer dealing with commands. There is a solution though. If you want to evade using terminal command and still want to customize your Mac deeply, resort to MacPilot.

MacPilot, made by a Canadian company, lets you change myriad aspects of Mac OS appearance and operation. From altering dock behaviors to optimizing internet confection, it can change the usage experience drastically. The app can be installed on Macs with OS X 10.6 and later versions.

As it is, MacPilot is not for casual users. It is meant for serious and advanced users, who want to extract every bit of performance from their iMac or MacBooks. The sheer amount of tweaking and controls offered by the app can be quite overwhelming. You may begin with Disk Utility in the UI sidebar.

The UI is not very sleek but quite well organized. Main features are stacked at top of the UI and left side contains categories. It is also easy to disable or hide certain Mac OS X features such as Dashboard. Such actions can be performed instantly with a click. With this app, you can also get rid of internet history as well as recent documents. Thus it enhances your privacy to an extent.

MacPilot also aids you in optimizing the OS in the best possible way and speeding up workflow. For example, it lets you see all Mac shortcut key combinations. Getting in depth system information is just a click away. It can also be used as a utility to manage network settings and connections. Thankfully, the app also offers option to restore default settings.

Positive Points:
•    Functional interface.
•    Extensive OS X customization.
•    Eliminates need to use Terminal Commands.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing in particular.

Conclusion:
MacPilot is a nifty and very useful application targeted at seasoned Macintosh users who want to customize the OS to the hilt. However, it is user friendly and the intuitive UI can be handled by average users too. When you use it, it is possible to find and utilize settings normally not found in the Mac OS. There is no need to resort to Terminal Commands when you have this utility installed in your Mac. While it does not come for free, the app offers solid value for money.

Rating: 3/5
