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!

Essential - Should be included in


- Short summarized review - If you like keeping your computer as streamlined as possible and the idea of random useless files left behind by apps even if you 'deleted' them, get the app. -

- Detailed review - I had no idea how much junk was left behind every time that I 'deleted' an app. This app is also great for generally resetting applicatioms back to their 'default' state. For instance, I was having a very irritating problem with the photos app on the latest macOS version I just installed (Mohave). It would just crash as soon as I opened it and I couldn't figure out what the hell was wrong. I finally decided to use this app to search for everything related to the app (application cache, log files, photo library ... etc) and I just deleted everything. Everything works perfectly now. app is so useful for anything from removing all the crap left behind when you 'delete' an app to resetting applications to their default settings (troubleshooting). Honestly I don't buy in-app purchases for anything but I actually bought the $4.99 upgrade thing. -

Fight back against sneaky developer “implants”!


App cleaner for me has become an invaluable tool. This has a lot to do with developers making it impossible to completely uninstall apps that offer free trials. A perfect case is Cold Turkey. I read about it and decided to give it a free try. But after a few minutes I knew it wasn’t for me. Then came the hard part: uninstalling. I had forgotten I have App Cleaner so I started with going to Finder and moving Turkey to trash. Impossible to do. Mac message kept saying it was still running. Try Force Quit but it’s not even listed.
Went online. There seem to be at least 20 posts about how nefarious Cold Turkey is when you try and get it out completely. Fortunately I remembered I had boiught app cleaner. Opened the app and it completely “axed" Cold Turkey in less than 15 seconds.

Support if you need it is very high level and response is less than 24 hours.
this app is a must.
