CheckUp 2 beta for Mac
App4mac has announced CheckUp 2.0 beta, the latest version of its program that scans a computer to provide information regarding system functionality and overall performance, while also allowing any unused applications to be removed. The update can now test RAM to detect bad components, list the number of file types that exist on a system, or search for duplicate files. Users can also uninstall more items than the previous versions would allow. A function to export system reports will eventually be added.
Other new features include a Wi-Fi detector with a signal-level meter, a new default color, and an option to quit all applications with one click. The user interface has been redesigned and several general improvements have been made.
The final version of CheckUp 2 will be available beginning January 4th. The program will cost $30 per license, while owners of previous versions can upgrade for free.
