Thank you for your review

Amnesia lets you easily and thoroughly uninstall apps and more. Many software titles on Mac OS come with the uninstall directions of simply "Drag the application to the Trash and empty it". In reality, this often leaves many related files on the computer taking up valuable hard drive space. Amnesia performs a smart scan to determine all related files to be removed.

Easily uninstall not just applications, but also Screen Savers, Dashboard Widgets, and Preference Panes. Amnesia will remove logs, caches, application support files, preferences, crash reports, and other application specific files. Take the frustration and more...

What is going on with Koingo and Amnesia.

The web site for Mnesia clearly indicates it has been discontinued, while at the same page indicating the downloads for the update.

I used Amnesia for years, and found it useful. I also use AppDelete and Zapper, both of which have become my go-to programs for deleting apps since Koingo's abandoning of Amnesia.

Also, I am curious as to why MacUpDate does not recommend Koingp's products. Could this have anything to do with it?

Koingo is not updating 'Amnesia' as in the past. It is for sale and I assume Koingo will keep the last version (1.4.5) downloadable until a new developer acquires it. For now, it would also appear that Koingo have incorporated Amnesia into another App, 'MacCleanse'. At least they use the same Amnesia icon in MacCleanse's 'App Delete' feature. I always found Amnesia annoyingly slow, and ultimately deleted it.
As to your last question, look at the reviews and comments from users under each Koingo App at this site. You will soon get a picture of the recent 'complications' in the Koingo-MacUpdate relationship.

Just got an email from Koingo. They are dropping support for anything below 10.7, and this is one of the Apps scheduled to be sold in their 'reorganization'.

Yep, this is officially no longer a supported or sold title by Koingo. We're disabling the listing (as we do with all discontinued apps).

See the fiasco with Koingo’s Data Guardian to understand why no one in their right mind would recommend this company's software.

Totally UNFAIR! I've used Amnesia from the first public beta with not a single problem of any kind. I've never heard of "Data Guardian." So, whatever the supposed "fiasco" was, it clearly had no effect on me or on my use of Amnesia. Giving Amnesia a half-star on the basis of a problem that has nothing to do with Amnesia and attempting to drive away Koingo's business with an unnecessary, red-print "warning," combined with a list of alternatives and your gratuitous insult that anyone who doesn't agree with your asininity and recommends Koingo's software *anyway* is not in his right mind is disgusting. And yes, I own all three of the suggested alternatives and I *still* prefer Amnesia. Yet, you give Amnesia a half-star *not* because, in your opinion, it sucks, but for a completely unrelated reason having to do with your opinion of a *different* app.

It wasn't me who disliked your opinion. But it would be better if you could explain why you think Amnesia excellent. Did you compare with other uninstallers? With which results? And what about the (lack of) speed?

Jazzyguy,

I like every review you post. I often go to your macupdate page just to see what you are dling and to read your informative, helpful reviews.

Sometimes in this rush-rush world all you have the time to write is "Excellent," but not often.

Don't let one newbie who doesn't understand netiquette and hasn't taken the time to read your many and thoughtful reviews helping the mac community keep you from doing what you do so well.

This time they got the App Store version and their own download version out the door at the same time. Kudos.

This page shows version 1.3.6, but when I download it the app describes itself as version 1.3.5 with a Modified date of 16 Feb 2012, not the 05 Oct 2012 I expect.

Seems that 1.3.6 is only the Apple Store version at another $19.99.

From all uninstallers this is by far the worse uninstaller.
It has a dreadful slow GUI and operation.
Does not find 50% of the related files other uninstallers find.
The iTunes file-flow is not functional for this kind of app. Clearly put into the app for eye candy.

Avoid.
