Memory Clean 2 is free — This free app optimises your Mac’s memory (RAM, not storage) and is best used after you have finished using a memory (RAM) intensive app or game. Memory Clean 2 is the successor to Memory Clean 1 app, which achieved several million downloads. If you would like to restore the Extreme Clean feature that you purchased via Memory Clean 1 on Memory Clean 2, please do not delete Memory Clean 1 until you have opened Memory Clean 2, gone to the Preferences panel and restored the purchase via the ‘Extras’ tab. More info on https://support.fiplab.com.
Note: Memory Clean 2 works by purging the Mac’s inactive memory and is best used when you close an intensive app that you do not plan to use again quickly within a few hours. During the cleaning process, older Macs may slow down until the cleaning is complete. (And extra deep clean feature is available in-app for US$7.49.)
