“I’ve been an active user of MacPaw’s Gemini software since its inception, and Gemini 2’s release today has made me fall in love with it all over again. In just the initial scan, Gemini 2 found more files and more places where I could intelligently clear and save space on my Mac.”

“If you want to clean up your Mac, but are trepidatious about digging around in your files and accidentally deleting something important, Gemini 2 has a lot to offer and makes the whole process very simple.”
“With Gemini 2 there’s little reason to fear duplicates. It has a polished, intuitive user interface and the brains to differentiate copies from originals by testing them against nearly a dozen different parameters. It’s also much faster, especially compared to digging through thousands of files and folders the old-fashioned way.”

This App Straight Up Doesn’t Work

I have my photos folder open and see tons of duplicated. Gemini spotted none of them… YOU HAD ONE JOB!

Quasi perfetto

Funziona bene, è veloce e l’interfaccia è molto pulita. Purtroppo non posso dare le 5 stelle per via di una mancanza che reputo significativa. Durante la selezione di piu foto simili manca l’opzione (mantieni il file piu grande) quindi bisogna per forza controllare a mano quale è il piu grande.

Très pratique mais…

… attention toutefois à ne pas abuser de l’automatisme si vous ne voulez pas perdre des fichiers. Je finis toujours en manuel, on ne sait jamais ! Et surtout ne pas utiliser le mode « similaires » car cela peut être fatale, surtout si vous êtes photographe !

Don’t be fooled...

The temporary allegedly “free” price has become the in-app purchase. Nothing free in this application - a licence is required for use.

Simple yet Powerful

The app is easy to use and simply is great at doing the one think it was meant to do: find duplicates and similar files.

Could Not Purchase Full Version

I’ve used Gemini I for at least a year, and it worked OK - not great, but decent enough that it was useful. When it recently began to fail (found zero duplicates in folders that had many), I decided to try the newer version. The Good: (1) Gemini II does a better job of finding duplicates than Gemini I (2) Gemini II also locates files that are similar, and has icons that alert you to their differences - location, file size, etc. The Disappointing: (1) Unlike Gemini I, there is no option to have the app automatically select files for deletion. You have to review each duplicate individually and click the check box next to each one you want deleted. That’s considerably more manual effort than Gemini I required. (Gemini I’s algorithms for the automatic selection options worked well for me.) (2) In the free version, you have to go to Finder and manually delete each duplicate one at a time. The full version price of $19.99 gets you a button that deletes all of the duplicates with a single click. IMO, that’s too much money for too little functionality. Because the description says that the app “learns” deletion preferences over time, I decided to go ahead and purchase it anyway, hoping it would become a more useful tool over time. But when I tried to purchase, I got a nondescript “Something went wrong” error message, and the app closed. After two or three attempts, I gave up and removed the app. I’ll instead go through my hard drive manually and just remove duplicates gradually over time.

Not 100% but very good.

First off this isn’t completely free. To get all the benefits you’ll need to spend 20 bucks, but worth it. I’ve wasted 20 dollars on a lot of things, but this wasn’t one of them.
