jv16 PowerTools 2017 – A Leap Forward

By June 8, 2016blog, news

Here is why we decided to take a leap forward to jv16 PowerTools 2017: jv16 PowerTools 2016 was originally scheduled to be released before the end of the year. However, as it often happens, when you’re doing something you love– we got a little carried away…

For the past 12 months, countless 72-hour research & development weeks have been invested to keep the promise made by our first freeware program RegCleaner back in 1998. That’s the grandfather of the commercial jv16 PowerTools System Utilities Suite and we only publish software that meets our quality standard.

This means that it must be 100% free of bloat, bundles, crapware, adware, scareware or every other type of hidden monetization related nonsense known to man.

A newer product is launching soon

This is why we have canceled the release of jv16 PowerTools 2016. Instead, we are going to leap forward and release the new major version of our software product as jv16 PowerTools 2017.

It offers you all the updates and improvements originally planned for jv16 PowerTools 2016 as well as many additional updates planned for the next version. It will also contain a feature to schedule a remote desktop appointment with our Chief of Support for any PC health checkups or manual expert fixes that your computer might need and we can offer all without you having to take your PC elsewhere.

Hint: Continue reading for a leap forward to jv16 PowerTools 2017 as we are introducing the new user interface, the new online shop, new product licensing model, new technical support staff and PC Optimization Expert as a service.

jv16 powertools 2017Introducing jv16 PowerTools 2017

Nothing on this scale has ever been done before in our company. We look forward to adding new features for to our software product. For you, this includes new on-demand services like Express Install (EI) and PC Optimization Expert (POE). More on these new services later; let’s take a look at the software first.

Here you see a screenshot of where we are right now in the development. This is what you will see as the new Home View of the software:

The areas where we spent the most of our time include:

We did a complete rehaul of the jv16 PowerTools system issues scanning engine included within the main tool: Clean and SpeedUp My Computer. You will be able to use the scanning engine to correctly identify and fix a wider range of Windows problems and third-party software leftovers.

A significant new element of the updated scanning engine you will notice is its ability to detect software leftovers with greater accuracy than ever before. Not only does it detect leftovers on your computer more effectively, but the user interface is also able to better pinpoint them out to you. For example, in the following screenshot you can see how the new Clean and SpeedUp My Computer organizes the found errors based on which software’s leftovers they are relating to:

We firmly believe there are is no other product on the market that comes even close to this level of accuracy when it comes to detecting software leftovers on your computer. This is because we have put them through extensive testing and it has sealed our confidence.

The results speak for themselves

As you can see from the screenshots, we have done major updates to the software’s main user interface. The new Home View gives you a full overview of the health of the computer. Even more importantly, it pinpoints areas that you will need to give attention to and gives you recommendations about what tools you should use to optimize your computer. Also, the new Home View shows you performance information, such as the startup times of your computer. It even shows you how using jv16 PowerTools has affected your system.

For the very first time, right from the software itself, you will be able to clearly see the actual numbers for how much faster jv16 PowerTools is able to make your computer operate.

For example, here is a screenshot of jv16 PowerTools 2017’s development version being used in a Windows 7 OS environment with almost a fresh installation of Windows and only a few installed software. In this environment, simply running the Clean And SpeedUp My Computer tool was able to make the system start more than 6% faster.

The new user interface shows you the individual, measured startup times:

Here is a summary:

What to expect with the new jv16 PowerTools 2017

We have also added many new tools such as Easy File Mass Renamer, Windows AntiSpy, Pictures AntiSpy, Windows Startup Time Analyzer and a newly redesigned Startup Optimizer which allows you to define which automatically starting Windows software is optimized by PowerTools.

These are just a very few of the brand new features and improvements in the upcoming jv16 PowerTools 2017. We will not bore you with all the details right now. You will soon be able to see and try the new version for yourself. We are currently scheduled to reveal the first Release Candidate (RC1) of the software later this month to our registered beta testers.

With most software, new versions mean more bloat and more unneeded features.

That has never been a policy with us…

We find it to be too ironic that software designed to clean your computer from bloat and crap would bloat up even more, based on every version we have tested. Although the current version of jv16 PowerTools was actually smaller in size than the previous version, with the upcoming version (with all the user interface updates and new tools), we are still looking at a mere 10% increase in the size of the actual software. It will be taking up less space on your computer.

Claudiu Matei, our new Chief of Support, as well as the entire Macecraft Software team, thanks you– our users– for the patience you have had with the development process!

Welcome to our new shop features

Please let us also introduce you to the concepts behind our new online shop. While working on the new product version, we were also working on a major update to our website, especially to update its shop feature.

The new shop will meet the modern requirements of user interface and features.  This includes full support for you on all of your mobile devices. Not only are we updating our shop’s user interface and technical implementation, as previously reported, but we will be updating our licensing model as well. Here is a preview of our new online shop and licensing model:

In the new licensing model, the standard jv16 PowerTools license will be valid for one year. During this time period, customers will receive all updates and new product versions without any additional costs. So if you’d buy the license today and in five months jv16 PowerTools 2018 would be released, you are eligible to update to the newer product version for free.

Low-rate subscription options will be available

We will also be adding an option to buy jv16 PowerTools as a subscription service. We added this option so you will always receive the latest version of the software for a competitively-priced subscription rate. This will then be billed either annually or every other year. An option similar to the current Platinum VIP is the option to buy once and use forever (with all future product updates). However, we have priced it accordingly to the current Platinum VIP price to meet the current market requirements.

The new licensing model will honor all older and current licenses. For example, all the Platinum VIP licenses that were sold as licenses that will work forever (and allows users to be eligible for all future product versions), will work as promised. All users who have purchased a license for jv16 PowerTools 2016 will receive jv16 PowerTools 2017 after it’s been llaunched.

jv16-powertools-2017-new_shop-pricingHint: If you want to still take advantage of the very affordable Platinum VIP license (soon: Pay once, use forever option), do it now, while the option is still available for only $69.99 USD (soon: $229.99 USD). Click here to checkout and register the product for life. We will keep the promise of delivering you a free upgrade to jv16 PowerTools 2017 as well as any upcoming update or major version release we will launch in the future.

Check out our online store

With the new shop, we will be also able to offer our customers new services. The flagship service will be called the PC Optimization Expert service, in which our trained staff members will use a remote connection to optimize and clean your computer. This will be a perfectly tailored and custom-fitted service matching exactly the type of computer you have and the software you use. Another service we plan to immediately make available is the Express Install option.
