The Mac App Store is home to more than one thousand free and paid apps. So far we’ve covered Twitter for Mac, Angry Birds for Mac, Trillian for Mac, Windows 7 Phone Connector, FaceTime 1.0 for Mac, and the Opera web browser. The newest app to make it to the App Store is Washing Machine.

The Mac App Store is now home to Washing Machine, the popular program developed by Intego, company that specializes in providing security solutions for Macs. You can get Washing Machine from the Mac App Store here. The application is available for purchase for $9.99. It provides support for several languages apart from English; it supports French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.


If you’re familiar with Washing Machine, then you need not read further. If you are not familiar with Intego’s Washing Machine application, then you need to know what sort of functionality it has to offer.

Here is a brief explanation of what it does: it cleans up the tracks you leave behind when using your Mac; it helps remove files that pose a privacy risk or needlessly take up disk space. These files can be removed manually by the user or automatically by the application. Washing Machine can remove these files in a secure manner so that no data recovery tool can bring them back to life.

“Washing Machine can clean five types of items: Bookmarks, Caches, Cookies, Download Histories, and Browsing Histories. It works with most web browsers, and many utilities or other programs that store information without users being aware. It even cleans up after some programs that users would never think are storing data. These files can take up several gigabytes, and can slow down applications and lead to longer time for backups,” explained Intego.
