Version 4.1
Review by Mamamick_ri

As good as or better than the more popular “app cleaner" - I almost downloaded and purchased what looks like the more popular App Cleaner in the App store. Always looking for the best apps in all categories, I rely heavily on reviews. Knowing some devs and companies pay for thier reviews or solicit them in other manipulative ways, that is not my only criteria. I had already used this app in the past and knew I liked it. The other app charges $9.99 for the “pro” version. All the free version does (for both apps) is scan the computer. If you want to actually remove the files, you have to pay for the “pro” version. While that is a little pricey for this type of tool, I have paid more for apps that do less, if I want them bad enough. Before I committed, I figured I would give this app one more try. I’m so glad I did!! Thefre is no possible way that the other app is any more thorough than this little work horse. It’s fast, has a small footprint, and not only scans the application folder, but also the system service files and removes them as well. Once I saw the much more affordable price tag of $3.99 for this pro version, I knew I was making the right choice and committed without hesitation. Thank you for not being a greed monster Sergiy Savenko @ Nektony!

Review by AG. NP

Not as advertised even remotely - If I don’t like an app I generally just move on however - this one claims to remove apps - IT DOESN’T - you MUST pay if you want to remove an app - that is ridiculous and false advertising - tell me I have to pay before I download and AM STUCK with it as I can’t get rid of it either on my MacBook. All of you that gave it 5 stars must have paid for it as the free version just is stupid - doesn’t do anything to free of real space - just gets rid of some small files that support apps. SO beware - if it is free you get what you pay for. FOr the people that made this - be honest in your advertising and tell us up front you want our money to uninstall things - if you had said that I probably would have paid the pittance amount but the fact that you lied and didn’t mention that - NO WAY I will go elsewhere.

Review by ioscoder

Free version does not actually remove app - I was misled by an article on the web—probably produced by the authors of this software—that this software would allow me to delete Winzip. I foolishly downloaded and installed it and set about deleting winzip. However, after pretending that it was going to allow me to do this and deleting some extra files related to winzip when it came time to delete the actual executable, the software said I had to upgrade to the Pro version. Very misleading. Now I have two utilities I need to delete.

Review by Theo void

Great App - Feels good to know its DELETED FOR REAL! - I used to use the remover app with the little brown grocerybag icon. But I read the reviews for this and they were all good. I went to use it and it showed me all the related files of the app i wanted to delete but said I had to upgrade to “pro” to use it. It was only $3.99 and it was totally worth it! Ive always been a bit paranoid about all the p-lists and preference files that apps leave behind after being deleted. This app puts my mind at ease. It’s a lot more important to me now because my internal ssd is not very big. Great app!!!!!!

Love this app - I’ve used several app cleaners and this is by far the best I’ve used. Worth every penny.
