CleanMyMac X in the Mac App Store

Oleksandr Kosovan:

The fact that the Mac App Store became much better and that it supported subscriptions, made us work on building CleanMyMac X for the Mac App Store.


The fact that some CleanMyMac X features aren’t available on the App Store doesn’t mean they’re harmful or illegal. The App Store limits privileges of applications to protect your Mac from malicious software, but this approach also imposes unnecessary restrictions on safe activities, like cleaning system logs or even updating applications. That’s exactly what happened to CleanMyMac X.

There’s a long list of missing features.

This is a joke and a huge Apple no-win mistake to let this product into the App Store. First, you do not need it and then, the app developers reduce the features in the "Apple Approved" version and charge the end user $40 per year for a product that most Apple reviewers and reviews suggest is not needed.

What's the reason for letting this into the app store in the first place? As Jim Curtin mentioned, this app is not necessary and potentially harmful. I've never seen a good argument for it's existence.
