Get the one for your OS version, of course. Unlike many other apps, they make several versions available that are OS specific.

You really DON'T need a "clean my mac" app. They're usually a waste of money/time and can screw up your system. OS X isn't like WindBlows that creates a lot of junk/temp files.

Just don't "buy" mac keeper.

The OS is really maintenance free. You may from time to time boot into single user mode, or boot into recovery partition and run repair permissions.

Don't buy any speed up fixer apps.

Don't worry, I'm aware that “Clean My Mac” is a scam. As if I hadn't had enough with those stupid ads around the web, lol.

Onyx it is then. Thanks for your advice.

i used to like applejack. its over at source forge. but it hasn't been updated in a while. it checks and repairs permissions, clears cache files, cleans virtual memory all in one shot

There's also a free, simple utility app called "Yasu":
http://yasuapp.net

Note that it is no longer being developed, but still is known to work through 10.10.

I've used it with 10.11, no problems that I can see.
